New Jersey Senate Committee Approves Bill Prohibiting Goods or Services be Offered for Those Delivering Mail Ballots

The New Jersey state Senate State Government, Wagering, Tourism, and Historic Preservation Committee has approved a bill today that prohibits any person from being paid or offered goods or services to be a messenger or a bearer of vote-by-mail ballots.

“The integrity of our elections is paramount to protecting our constitutional democracy,” said the bill sponsor, Senator Gordon Johnson (D-Bergen).

“This legislation works to prevent bad faith actors from committing voter fraud and abusing a system that helps many of our residents exercise their right to vote.”

Under current law, messengers are authorized through an application process to deliver blank mail-in ballots to qualified voters who are family members or residents of the same county. These are often elderly or disabled voters who cannot safely obtain a ballot.

Once a voter completes a ballot, a bearer can deliver a limited number of voter ballots back to a ballot drop box, regular mailbox, or to the county board of elections.

The bill, which was approved by a unanimous 5-0 vote, would make it a criminal act to be paid or receive gifts, goods, or services to be a messenger or bearer of ballots in New Jersey.

  1. Mail-In Ballot Messenger Refuses To Return Assumed Cash Value Of Goods He Received From Biden Campaign As Payment For His Services, Says “The Goods I Received From Biden Were No Different than The Ballots I Delivered On His Behalf, They Were All Counterfeit Fakes!”
    A NJ man, who delivered mail-in-ballots on behalf of the Biden campaign during the 2020 Presidential election, told reporters on Monday that he has no plans to return the assumed cash value of the Rolex Watches he received from the Biden camp as payment for his delivery services because, “I discovered that the Rolex watches I received were no different than the mail-in ballots I had delivered; they were all counterfeit fakes!”
    The NJ state senate approved a bill on Monday that prohibits messengers of mail-in-ballots from accepting goods or gifts as payment for their services. Although the prohibition only went into effect on Monday, NJ resident, Timothy Jones, the aforementioned delivery man, was asked whether he would return the goods he received from the Biden campaign as past payment for his services.
    “Truth be told, I knew from the get-go that the ballots I was delivering were being delivered to non-existent, make-believe voters, or to individuals who were no longer counted among the living,” he said, “but much to my regret, I was a staunch Biden supporter, and I was willing to engage in whatever criminal activity I deemed necessary to get Mr. Biden elected and to put a few extra bucks into my pocket. Little did I know, the Biden campaign was giving messengers like me counterfeit Rolexes as payment for our services because they reasoned that the mail-in ballots were fake, hence the Rolex watches should also be fake!”
    “The knock-off watches I received from the Biden camp were all counterfeit; complete garbage,” he said, “they stopped functioning within 24 hours after I inserted the batteries! Pure junk!”
    “I learned the hard way,” he said, “that – unless you happen to be Joe Biden who habitually engages in crooked business transactions with foreign entities – crime doesn’t pay!”
    “Based on the true value of those knock-off watches,” he said, “I’ve decided to send Mr. Biden a small bag of peanuts as a refund for the fake goods he sent me. The peanuts are probably worth more than the counterfeit watches.”
