A Pittsburgh-area mail carrier was placed on unpaid leave after agents recovered an undelivered mail-in ballot and dozens of political advertisements in a garbage can, numerous sources reported.
The discarded mail was found Thursday in a garbage can at Persad Center, a facility that provides counseling and other services to LGBTQ+ people and people with HIV/AIDS in Lawrenceville. The interim executive director of the Persad Center, Carlos Torres, said the facility’s manager found the mail in the trash can outside the building, the Tribune Review reported Tuesday.
“Our manager looked into the trash can outside the building’s main entrance and saw mail that had not been delivered,” Torres said according to the Tribune Review. “None of the mail in the trash belonged to us, so we left it alone so we didn’t damage any evidence.” (RELATED: Three Trays Of Mail, Including Absentee Ballots, Found In Wisconsin Ditch)
