Postal employee who discarded 112 Louisville ballots could face federal charges

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The United States Postal Service employee who allegedly discarded more than 100 absentee ballots in a dumpster Thursday no longer works for the Postal Service and could face federal prosecution.

Special agents of the Postal Service Office of Inspector General discovered 112 absentee ballots intended for the 40299 zip code of the Jeffersontown area after responding to a report of undelivered mail being found by a citizen in Louisville on Thursday morning, special agent Scott Balfour said in a statement.

On Friday, Balfour said the individual is no longer employed by the Postal Service. He added “federal privacy concerns preclude me from providing any more details about their employment.”

He is the kind of person that gives Postal workers a bad name.

But just like Ivory Soap, 99 & 44/100% of postal workers are honest and hard workers. Don’t judge the postal service by one or two bad apples.
