Military Ballots Found in the Trash in Pennsylvania, All Were Trump Votes


Mail-in ballots from the military serving overseas were found in the trash in Pennsylvania. The ballots were discovered during an investigation into election issues in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. They were all votes for President Trump.

[There are several reports of vote-by-mail irregularities from many other parts of the country where ballots were thrown in the garbage, or were improperly printed or sent to one address.]

The U.S. Attorney’s Office Middle District of Pennsylvania released a statement on the situation.

On Monday, September 21, 2020, at the request of Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis, the Office of the United States Attorney along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Scranton Resident Office, began an inquiry into reports of potential issues with a small number of mail-in ballots at the Luzerne County Board of Elections.

Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.

While nine ballots have been recovered, it is not clear how many were actually discarded.

This announcement comes on the heels of a report that three trays of mail, including absentee ballots, were discovered in a ditch in Wisconsin.

( Only a day after it was revealed an investigation was taking place in Pennsylvania to find out why nine mail-in military ballots – all cast for President Donald Trump – were found discarded, reports suggest an investigation is underway in Wisconsin to get to the bottom of a similar incident. The United States Postal Service is reportedly investigating a discovery of absentee ballots found discarded on a road in swing-state Wisconsin.

The Post Crescent reported how three trays of mail were found before 8 a.m. on Monday in a ditch on State 96. The Outagamie County Sheriff’s office told local media that the mail was meant to be sent to the post office, and after it was turned over to the postal inspector by the sheriff’s office, “several” absentee ballots were found inside.

The Postal Service refused to disclose just how many ballots were found inside the trays of discarded mail.

“We are aware of some mail including absentee ballots recovered in Greenville, Outagamie County earlier this week,” a spokesperson for the Postal Service explained. “The U.S. Postal Service is investigating this matter, and we are unable to comment further at this time.”

President Donald Trump has spent months warning that the Democrats may be relying on chaos with mail-in ballots to win the November election.

This week, he retweeted a report on the mail-in voting chaos by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson, describing how the “Democrats are Rigging our 2020 Election.”

No wonder President Trump said the other day that Democrats are rigging our 2020 election. Twitter then added a label to the bottom of the Tweet which said, “Learn how voting by mail is safe and secure.”

How is voting by mail safe and secure when votes and ballots are being found abandoned in the street, and sometimes even discarded?

Not only are votes going missing, but fraud occurs too. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced last week that over 100 felony charges would be brought forward in what appears to be an illegal ballot harvesting scheme used in a Democrat primary race.

“It is an unfortunate reality that elections can be stolen outright by mail ballot fraud,” Paxton said. “Election fraud, particularly an organized mail ballot fraud scheme orchestrated by political operatives, is an affront to democracy and results in voter disenfranchisement and corruption at the highest level.”
