A U.S. Postal Worker in Kentucky has been fired and could face charges after attempting to dump over 100 absentee ballots, according to local news outlets. 

The USPS Office of Inspector General said the unidentified postal worker is “no longer employed” after the ballots were found amid a pile of discarded USPS mail in a dumpster on Thursday, according to WKYT.  

“The case has been accepted for federal prosecution by the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” Special Agent Scott Balfour wrote in a statement. “They will determine what charges are appropriate after a review of all the facts in the case.”

WKYT reported Thursday that a person found a pile of discarded mail, which included 112 absentee ballots and two political advertisements. The ballots were supposed to be sent to the Jeffersontown, Ky. area. 

Earlier this month, a postal service mail carrier in New Jersey was arrested for allegedly discarding 1,875 pieces of mail, including 99 general election ballots.
