The idea that the 2020 election was on the complete up and up just took another blow this week.
Nicholas Beauchene, a 26-year-old mail carrier, has confessed to disposing of mail that contained roughly 100 general election ballots.
Is that enough to swing the election? Obviously not, but it adds more credence to the demand of Republicans to further investigate the 2020 election.
According to reports, Beauchene acknowledged that he tossed 1,875 pieces of mail.
Among that mail were nearly 100 election ballots.
This did not appear to be politically motivated, according to the report.
In this case, the mail was eventually retrieved and delivered, but Republicans will jump all over this to question how many other mail carriers possibly did this and did not get caught.
It Doesn’t Matter
Both sides have the same argument for a different reason.
Democrats say this is typical of the problems we have seen, meaning it was not widespread enough to warrant a massive investigation.
Republicans say that we have the opportunity to rid our elections of irregularities like this once and for all, so let’s investigate and fix the problems regardless of whether it would make a difference in the election outcome.
This is especially true regarding the United States Postal Service, where previous allegations have been made regarding other discarded ballots as well as backdating ballots so they would count.
