KEARNY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A New Jersey postal worker is accused of dumping nearly 2,000 pieces of mail, including ballots and political flyers for the upcoming election.
Nicholas Beauchene started working as a U.S. Postal Service worker in July. Less than four months later, he has resigned after being accused of tossing 627 pieces of first-class mail, 99 general election ballots, 276 campaign flyers, and much more over the course of one week in Bergen and Essex counties.
The Simon family of West Orange, who live along the 26-year-old suspect’s mail route, told CBS2’s Christina Fan they are furious.
