U.S. Attorney Will Investigate Discarded Military Ballots in Pennsylvania

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that it will be investigating the recent discovery of multiple discarded mail-in ballots, cast by military personnel and all cast for President Donald Trump, according to ABC.

The U.S. Attorney’s investigation will be done in conjunction with the FBI’s Scranton office, and will soon “begin an inquiry into reports of potential issues with a small number of mail-in ballots at the Luzerne County Board of Elections,” the statement from the Attorney’s office read. The office confirmed that nine discarded military ballots had been recovered.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany highlighted this incident as further proof that President Trump’s claims of voter fraud are legitimate, even though most in the mainstream media have tried to claim that voter fraud and voter suppression doesn’t exist.

The pending investigation was requested by the Luzerne County District Attorney, Stefanie Salavantis, U.S. Attorney David Freed confirmed in a letter to Luzerne County’s Director of Elections. Freed further explained the details of the case, confirming that “investigators recovered four apparently official, barcoded, absentee ballot envelopes that were empty. Two of those envelopes had the completed attestations and signatures on the reverse side. One envelope with a handwritten return address was blank on the reverse side.”

The discarded ballots, found in a dumpster outside the county elections office, is the latest example of voter fraud in a crucial swing state. Earlier this week, a stack of absentee ballots were found in a ditch in Wisconsin. In addition to the rising trend of discarded ballots, there is equal concern regarding a trend of numerous left-wing judges and other bureaucratic officials arbitrarily extending the deadline by which most swing states can count “late” ballots after the election; among these are the crucial swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
