112 absentee ballots found in dumpster in Kentucky
Officials say 112 blank absentee ballots were found in a dumpster in Kentucky. An investigation is underway.
a contractor renovating this home near Tully Elementary School on Jolene Drive found the ballots. Federal officials who picked them up wouldn't comment on camera, but did say they saw dozens of ballots by the time they got through all the crates of the UN delivered mail, the office of the inspector general confirming it was 112 ballots in all. We don't need that for Louisville. We don't need that for the Louisville Post office folks, and we don't need that for the voters, either. It's kind of it's very discouraging. Once we broke the news of the thrown away ballots to Nouri Joe Body of the Jefferson County Board of Elections, he immediately called his boss, Bobby Holtzclaw. The county clerk knows at this point, uh, and, uh, she was in a conference call and they slipped her a note and said, This has happened. Have you heard? And she just I was taken back with it, Of course, I guess, by her expression. So I heard this happened On the day elections workers will put in late hours getting out the last 8000 of 175,000 absentee ballots in Jefferson County that have to be postmarked by tomorrow. As for the 112 discarded ballots, investigators say they've already been turned over to the post office for immediate delivery. It has to be somebody that worked for the post office because that was in their possessions, especially if they were in containers that big. The feds already interviewing a neighbor, is they try to figure out who dumped the mail.
