Nicholas Beauchene began working for the US Postal Service in July, 2020. No longer. The DOJ has charged him for dumping 1,875 pieces of mail, including ballots, in two dumpsters in North Arlington and West Orange, New Jersey. CNN reports postal investigators believe the 26-year-old dumped the mail on two different days, from two different mail routes.
