A US postal worker out of Texas just helped make the case against mail-in ballots by being caught on video throwing away GOP campaign ads for a local sheriff.
“Sheriff Troy Nehls is a republican candidate running for Texas’ 22nd Congressional District. He said the postal worker was caught on video throwing a stack of his campaign mailers in the trash,” according to WFLA.
A business owner called Nehls and showed him surveillance footage of the alleged incident that happened behind a building near FM 359.
“The owner said when he went to go retrieve what was thrown away, he found Nehls’ reelection campaign fliers,” Click2Houston reported.
Friday afternoon, Nehls tweeted the video and said when people standing nearby heard a noise, they went to investigate and found the campaign ads in the dumpster:

The surveillance footage showed the person step out of the USPS vehicle and walk toward the dumpster while carrying what looked like a large object.
The individual opened the gate, went behind it, then reemerged and got back into the vehicle and drove away.
Minutes after the business owner called him, the sheriff said he went to retrieve the stack of mailers.
It should go without saying that the security of our nation’s elections should not be in the hands of postal workers.
