[LAS VEGAS—Nov. 5, 2020] Project Veritas released today a video of a U.S. Postal Service carrier at the Loma Vista Apartments here telling an undercover journalist in May that he would leave unclaimed ballots out for him to take.

“Hey, not a problem, man, I’m gonna see if I can get you some, like a nice handful [of ballots],” said Art, a Las Vegas mailman.

Art next asked the journalist his apartment number, and upon hearing it said: “If it’s in there— I didn’t do it.”

The carrier said there are always old ballots around with the rest of the unclaimed mail.


“A lot of the times the people get rid of them, because they are an old tenant, and they don’t live there anymore,” he said.

Just how they normally deal with things that they don’t want,” he said. “They stick them - you’ll just see them like - they’ll be just stuck here, maybe they’ll throw them in the trash.”

Journalist: “Where do all the undeliverable ballots go?”

Las Vegas Mailman: “The undeliverable ballots? Normally they go back to me.”

The mail carrier told the undercover journalist he was aware that unclaimed ballots were wasted opportunities to vote against President Donald J. Trump.

Journalist: “We’re losing votes on those, man. We can’t let Trump win this damn thing.”

Las Vegas Mailman: “I know.”

Journalist: “We can’t let Trump win this damn thing.

Las Vegas Mailman: “He doesn’t like this way because I think more, I’m hoping more people vote because they don’t have to line up at polls and all that.”

Journalist: “If you can’t vote from mail in voting then what the hell?”

Las Vegas Mailman: “Yeah.”        

James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas said, “Americans want to trust the integrity of our elections and the postal service—if our voting is going to be trusted to the post office, we have to be able to trust the post office.”

The mailman’s admission is stunning, he said.

“When Art in Las Vegas told our undercover journalist he would quote: ‘See if I can get you a little handful,’ he’s talking about ballots, legal ballots but sent to the wrong address,” O’Keefe said.

“This is yet another example of real concerns when it comes to voter fraud across this country,” he said.

This video’s release follows a Project Veritas Insider coming forward with his account of a post office supervisor Nov. 4 ordering all the carriers at his Traverse City, Michigan post office to set aside ballots, so they could be fraudulently postmarked for Nov. 3, Election Day.
