On Friday, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls posted a video to Twitter that shows a postal worker dumping a stack of his campaign mailers in a dumpster. Nehls, by the way, happens to be running for the House of Representatives in Texas’ 22nd Congressional District as a Republican.
“A US Postal worker was just caught on video throwing a stack of my campaign mailers in a dumpster. Some patriots nearby heard a noise when she tossed them in & went to investigate. They found a stack of them and called me. No wonder people are skeptical of mail in voting,” he said on Twitter.
Here’s the video he posted:

Nehls, by the way, happens to support Trump. He also happens to be a church-going family man, tough on crime and tough on border security.
As one person noted:
That is mail tampering. Mail tampering is a federal law. What was this postal workers name? I’m sure the individual could be identified based on description/location. Do mail trucks have a gps tracker? I expect a prosecution regarding this federal crime.

Yes, this is a felony. But we can’t help but wonder if this person will manage to get off, since laws only seem to apply to one side these days.
Nehls says his campaign relies on mailers because he can’t afford television commercials.
We’re running a grassroots campaign and don’t have money for TV. I rely on mailers to reach voters and it’s sad to see a federal employee interfering with that. If you’d like to pitch in a few dollars to help our campaign reach more voters, click here: https://t.co/don9ppUfvl

Incidents like this, by the way, are part of the reason many do not trust the idea of mail-in voting.
