Right Before Election Day, this Mailman Dumped Hundreds of Republican Postcards in the Trash
Just a few days before election day, a Wisconsin mailman dumped 879 political mailers in the trash. All of them appeared to support Republican candidates.
A Wisconsin mailman is under investigation for dumping hundreds of letters supporting Republican candidates in the trash, according to the Wisconsin Reporter.
According to the news outlet, 879 pieces of “political mail” were discarded, none of which appeared to be supporting Democratic candidates.
Mike Rorhkaste, a GOP candidate for Wisconsin’s 55th assembly district, said he was alerted by a Neenah, Wisconsin, resident who said they witnessed a mail carrier dumping letters into a recycling bin. The resident checked the bin after the carrier left and found hundreds of mailers supporting Republican candidates, including Rorhkaste.
After an investigation, Robert Rukes, a special agent with the U.S. Postal Service Office of the Inspector General, said the mailman was not politically motivated, but was just “lazy.” Dumping the mailers was easier than delivering them.
