Guys, the elections are all safe and secure and there have never been any problems with mail-in voting, and if you question anything about the elections you're basically an insurrectionist.
Anyways, this lady in Los Angeles just happened to stumble on more than 100 mail-in ballots while walking her dog the other day.
From Fox News:
Local and federal authorities are investigating after a Los Angeles woman said she stumbled upon more than 100 mail-in ballots abandoned on a West Hollywood sidewalk this weekend while walking her dog.
Christina Repaci told Fox 11 Los Angeles she was walking her dog Saturday in the area of Oxford Avenue and Institute Place when she noticed a U.S. Postal Service box full of envelopes. Upon closer inspection, she realized they were mail-in ballots, and she began recording what she found on her cellphone.
The woman said she took the box home and counted 104 mail-in ballots inside. That's when she began sending videos around to social media accounts and politicians and began contacting the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department and other agencies to find out how to best report what she had found.
She found an entire box of mail-in votes just sitting on the sidewalk in West Hollywood.
Where did it come from? Why weren't these votes accounted for?
Those questions remain unanswered.
Finally, the Los Angeles County Registrar's Office organized a pick-up of the ballots. Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan came personally to retrieve the ballots from Repaci.
The Los Angeles County Registrar's Office said in a statement that a mail tray was found containing approximately 104 unopened, outbound Vote by Mail ballots and additional mail pieces, and after organizing a secure pick-up of the ballots, new ballots have been reissued to the impacted voters.
"Early signs indicate that this was an incident of mail theft and not a directed attempt at disrupting the election," it said. "We are cooperating with the United States Postal Service and law enforcement to investigate."
Ooooh, so it's mail theft and not intentional election interference.
The fact that ballots being placed in the mail allows for an election to be interfered with while the post office has NO IDEA that anything has happened is as good a case against mail-in voting as if it was intentional.
The results are the same.
Maybe, just maybe, this is a sign to not allow elections to take place through the mail.
This comes before the California primary scheduled for June 7 when voters will decide between challengers for incumbent Gov. Gavin Newsom, as well as between candidates for U.S. Senate, state senator, attorney general, U.S. representative in Congress and other local races. In Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti is up for re-election, as are the seats for city controller, city attorney and City Council.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, a Democrat who's been sparring with the county over its vaccine mandate for deputies amid a crime wave and homelessness crisis, is also seeking re-election.
"If it happens to someone else [and] they don't know what to do, they'll just put them in a dumpster or throw them in the trash," Repaci told Fox 11, fearing she might not be the only one to find abandoned ballots. "I just don't think it should have been this hard to figure out what to do with legal ballots. This is a country of freedom, and our votes should matter and something like this should never happen."
Mail-in voting is not secure.
All voting, other than normal absentee votes, should be in person and on election day. Election "season" is bad for election security.
