The USPS is investigating a huge issue with mail-in Southern California, this story has developed at a time where many Americans look at the option of mail-in voting for the 2020 election, and worries over voter fraud are at an all-time high. USPS is investigating a case where individuals were dumping bags of mail and boxes off out of the back of unmarked trucks, many are unsure as to what this was or who is sending this mail. More from Town Hall:
One of the instances was caught on a surveillance camera outside of a spa. A Budget rental truck can be seen backing up before a man jumps out and unloads the bags of mail and boxes.
It was completely unusual. If they’re taking for their personal use, basically, why’d they have to drop off all the unopened packages somewhere,” Lilia Serobian, the co-owner of 7Q salon told CBS Los Angeles. “Of course it’s suspicious. You start thinking, ‘OK, something is going on,’ because no one has access to all those boxes and packages.”
Police said the incident at 7Q happened shortly after a similar dump was made less than half a mile away.
Glendale Police Sgt. Christian Hauptmann told the Los Angeles Times the incident involved “possible stolen mail or whatever [that] was dumped in an alleyway.”
These incidents are truly bizarre and add more fire to the debate for and against mail-in voting. USPS has cut back on overtime pay and sorting machines already this year, the system is being overwhelmed already, many believe that mail-in voting in the presidential election will completely bog the system down.
