  3. Secretion of the mail? That makes it sound like the guy lives and breathes mail, so much so that it oozes from his pores. You would think someone that supremely dedicated to mail would be named postmaster.

    1. There should be a spray, paste, or cream that can prevent the embarrassing secretion of mail.

    2. There is a reason the USPS sometimes gets referred to as the paste orifice.

      1. That’s just because of all the paste eaters who work there.

    3. Cliff Clavin could not be reached for comment.

  4. But Reason has assured us that election meddling is rarer than hen’s teeth. Nothing to see here.

    1. Reason has also assured us that mistakes made by Mamma are non-existent. It would be an UTTERLY CRUSHING blow, for me to find out that Mamma is NOT 110% perfect, after all!

      PLEASE do NOT let us down, Mamma! Maintain that life-long streak of perfection in all ways!

      1. Vacuous, as usual.

    3. No such thing as fake ballot boxes in GOP offices! Nope! Media hoax!

    4. I have been assured by unreason that tampering with ballots is not a problem.

  5. Fake news; totally debunked malarky.
    Blindly mailing out ballots, or invitations to send for absentee ballots is totally safe and secure and never, ever, fails.
    If you can’t understand that, you ain’t a democrat.

  7. The recovered mail was placed back into the mail stream for delivery to its intended recipients

    Giving junk mail a whole new meaning.

  8. No hope for New Jersey Voters.
    My wife and I received three extra ballots; one for my father-in-law (deceased for more than ten years), one each for my son and daughter both who are registered out of state (for years). In addition, there is a pile of ballots at the borough hall (the ones turned in apparently because of voter fraud concerns). I contacted the local Newspaper (for the hell of it), no interest. Reached out to the Governor and Senator Shirley Turner; not even an automated response. So, (for the hell of it) I emailed the White House and received an automated response. Waste of time. Yea, no fraud to see here. What’s up with that Reason?

    1. Those are empty ballots. Where’s the fraud?

    2. For clarification, did you open them to confirm that they were actual ballots? Or were they merely applications for absentee ballots?

      Either way, it’s disturbing that your dept of election’s records are so unreliable. But if it was just the application, that still leave the opportunity for other error-checking in the process.

      1. The real deal (I opened one up and tossed it). They are REAL LIVE ballots. I have one unopened, should I make a video?

        1. I wouldn’t make that video if it’s a ballot with someone else’s name on it.

          1. Agreed… I’ve mentioned this to a few people; My favorite comment (other that “whats this guy secreting on the mail”) is “I don’t believe you”. I should have said: What do I have to do make a video? I have no idea how much of an impact this kind of thing can have, NJ GOV should be able to do better.

            1. Governor Former Goldman Sachs executive Phil Murphy has said on the record that he’s certain they won’t “detect” any voter fraud in NJ.

              Read into that as you like.

            2. I’ve lived in NJ all my life. We’re not able to do better.

          2. Take video that shows the outside of several of them, and then open the one with the right name on it.

  9. What was this guy secreting on the mail?

  11. When I was twelve, I had a paper route. I rode my bike and faithfully delivered my papers — how heroic — landing them on front porches. But I remember seeing piles of “ditched” papers in the field where less reliable paperboys dumped them.

    I only made a few dollars a week, not $50K a year with platinum benefits and pension.

  12. Since they were blank ballots, hard to conclude he was trying to favor one side over the other [unless his delivery route was composed of some demographic that he assumed was uniformly hostile to his particular cause].

    So I can only conclude that the mailman hates democracy.

    1. I’m beginning to see why…

    2. Or did he toss the ballot whenever he saw a yard sign he disagreed with?

  13. So I’m pretty good friends with a carrier for the USPS, and based on the conversations I’ve had with him, Occam’s razor would have this guy’s motive as “Lost His Shit”, and not “Election Fraud”.

    1. I should clarify that poor leadership, combined with Amazon Prime, has driven your average postal worker to the edge
