WASHINGTON, D.C. – A federal judge in Washington, D.C. ordered the United States Postal Service to conduct sweeps of all mail-in ballot locations to ensure that votes were collected properly, after the discovery that 300,000 ballots apparently went missing.
For some reason, the USPS ignored the order.
U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered the USPS to conduct a sweep of 15 states’ mail-in ballot boxes to ensure that all the ballots were counted. This was to be done prior to noon on Nov. 3.
Apparently, the USPS ignored that order, claiming their quality control measures would ensure that all ballots were counted.
The postal service said of the move:
“Defendants [USPS] have been working to comply with this Court’s Order, which requires a ‘sweep’ of postal facilities within several specified districts, while recognizing the limitations caused by time and the Postal Service’s pre-existing Postal Inspection processes. As of the time of this filing, that process remains ongoing…
“There are only one or two inspectors in any one facility, and thus they do not have the ability to personally scour the entire facility. Indeed, doing so would be impractical (given the size of that facility) and would take them away from their other pressing Election Mail-related responsibilities, as detailed above.”
Sullivan ordered the move after the USPS disclosed that several hundred thousand votes had been scanned into the system and had been picked up by postal workers. However, they seemingly never left the custody of the USPS, which leads to concerns that those ballots will not be counted.
This does not mean that the 300,000 ballots are lost, it could just mean that the ballots have not been shipped out yet. If that is the case, those ballots will be accounted for in the system once they are scanned for delivery.
Justice Department Attorney John Robinson sided with the USPS in ignoring the order from the federal judge. His point was that changing how USPS does business this close to an election would cause a significant delay of mail.
“On Election Night, [the review] is scheduled to occur from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., a time period developed by Postal Service Management and the Postal Inspection Service in order to ensure that inspectors are on site to ensure compliance at the critical period before the polls close.
“Given the time constraints set by this Court’s order, and the fact that Postal Inspectors operate on a nationwide basis, Defendants [USPS] were unable to accelerate the daily review process to run from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. without significantly disrupting pre-existing activities on the day of the Election, something which Defendants did not understand the Court to invite or require.”
The NAACP has filed a lawsuit against the USPS over the handling of the mail in ballots.
“There have been widespread reports of mail piling up in regional distribution centers and post offices around the country, and of customers experiencing substantial delays and disruptions in mail service.
“For example, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, residents experienced delays of up to three weeks in receiving mail, leading to missed worker’s compensation checks and paychecks.”
The NAACP also alleges that the Postmaster General, Louis De Joy, has intentionally taken steps to ensure that mail-in ballots are not counted.
They claim that De Joy “impeded the timely distribution of mail, implemented crippling policies on postal workers, and sabotaged the United States Postal Service in a blatant attempt to disenfranchise voters of color.”

Bombshell report: More than 223,000 mail-in ballots sent to wrong addresses – in Nevada alone
August 10, 2020
CLARK COUNTY, NV –Who says mail-in balloting will lead to massive voter fraud in the United States?
Apparently, no one in Nevada, as recent reports indicated that hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots were sent to the wrong addresses.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an election integrity group, learned that Clark County in Nevada mailed ballots to all registered voter in the county for the June primaries.
When they dug into the matter, they found that over 223,000 ballots were sent to the wrong addresses.
The president of PILF, J Christian Adams, said:
“These numbers show how vote by mail fails. New proponents of mail balloting don’t often understand how it actually works.
“States like Oregon and Washington spent many years building their mail voting systems and are notably aggressive with voter list maintenance efforts.
“Pride in their own systems does not somehow transfer across state lines. Nevada, New York, and others are not and will not be ready for November.”
Logan Churchwell, the Communications Director for PILF, had this to say:
“Nevada’s voter rolls aren’t maintained to the standard required for an all-mail experience like Oregon or Washington.
“The Nevada governor is foolish to think he can replicate his regional neighbor’s years of development and practices with mail voting in a matter of months with a weekend emergency bill.”
Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin told the Washington Free Beacon:
“The addresses that we used were provided by the voters when they registered. If they no longer reside at the address they provided to us, then we would expect that mail to be returned to us, which is what happened.”
The idea that somehow, they just had the wrong address is disturbing. What is even more disturbing is that countless other mail-in ballots could have also been sent to the wrong addresses, but people accepted them as their own.
There would be no way of accounting for how many ballots are illegally cast by someone pretending to be another person.
In addition, there are concerns that voting by mail could lead to unlawful registrations to vote in the first place. For instance, LET reported last month that there was a deceased cat who was sent in a voter’s registration form.
In this case, someone placed the cat’s name on a voter registration form and mailed it to the owner’s address. Of course, some could say this was just an innocent oversight by some third-party group trying to encourage people to register to vote. However, what if that was not the intent, or even if it was, what if the person receiving that was not honest?
Brad Raffensperger, the Secretary of State for Georgia, said:
“Third-party groups all over the country are targeting Georgia to help register qualified individuals. This group makes you wonder what these out-of-town activists are really doing.
“Make no mistake about it, this office is dedicated to investigating all types of fraud.”
Democrats from all over the country are pushing for more lenient voter requirements as well as mail-in balloting. They claim that forcing someone to identify themselves as the correct person to vote is somehow racist and that mail-in balloting is necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Democratic leaders like former Attorney General Eric Holder believes that voter identification laws are racist. His belief is that voter ID laws were meant to “screw the African-American voter.”
His successor, Loretta Lynch, added:
“Yes, yes, and it’s nothing new. This is a historical issue. It’s a current issue. And it’s only history because it happened to somebody else, not because it could never happen again. That’s what’s happening now.”
Former Vice President and democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden also feels voter ID laws are racist. Biden said that voter ID laws were only about suppressing minority voters and nothing else.
“It’s what these guys [republicans] are all about, man. Republicans don’t want working-class people voting. They don’t want black folks voting.”
For some reason, democrats claim that minorities are less likely to be able to obtain state identification, like a license or ID than white people.
Some claim it is because most minorities are poorer than white people, but fail to recognize the cheap cost of obtaining a state ID. The only people that cannot get a state identification are illegal aliens.
There is no disputing that forcing people to identify themselves when they vote would drastically decrease voter fraud from occurring. However, democrats claim there is no voter fraud, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.
Like in Michigan, where local citizens were sent mail-in ballots that they never requested. Some of these ballots were sent to people who had been dead for decades, not legally allowed to vote because of their age, or illegal aliens.
As states start their push for mail-in voting, groups like PILF are diligently working to fix the broken voting systems in several states. They have successfully worked to clear deceased and duplicated voters from the scrolls.
