The Boston Police Department is asking for the public's help in
identifying a man in connection with a fire that was set inside a ballot
drop box in the city.

Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin contacted U.S. Attorney
Andrew Lelling's office after he was notified of the incident Sunday
morning. He is also calling on the FBI to investigate what appears to be a
deliberate attack.

The Boston Elections Department notified Galvin's office that the fire was
set at about 4 a.m. in the ballot drop box outside of the Boston Public
Library's main branch in Copley Square.

Boston police said officers responded at 4:11 a.m. to the area of 700
Boylston St., which is the location of the library's main branch. When
they arrived at the scene, the officers saw Boston firefighters tending to
smoke coming from the ballot box.

The ballot box appeared to be on fire, but firefighters were unable to
determine if the fire was burning on the inside, according to police.
Crews were eventually able to extinguish the fire by filling the box with
water.

When the drop box was emptied Sunday morning, 87 of the 122 ballots inside
were legible and able to be processed. The last time the box had been
emptied prior to the fire was just before 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

“What happened in the early hours of this morning to the ballot drop box
in Copley Square is a disgrace to democracy, a disrespect to the voters
fulfilling their civic duty, and a crime,” reads a joint statement from
Galvin and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. “Our first and foremost priority is
maintaining the integrity of our elections process and ensuring
transparency and trust with our voters, and any effort to undermine or
tamper with that process must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the
law. We ask voters not to be intimidated by this bad act, and remain
committed to making their voices heard in this and every election.”

Boston voters who used the Copley Square drop box between 2:30 p.m.
Saturday and 4 a.m. Sunday, and who haven't been able to confirm receipt
of their ballot through the state's tracking website, were urged to
immediately contact the Boston Elections Department.

Affected voters will be mailed a replacement ballot and can either cast it
or vote in-person until 8 p.m. on Election Day, which is Nov. 3. Any
affected voters who do not submit a new ballot will have their original
ballot hand-counted to the best extent possible, according to Galvin's
office.

In light of the fire, Galvin has directed all local election officials
across Massachusetts to increase drop box security. He is urging them to
employ guards and video surveillance, while also requesting they empty
drop boxes more frequently.

No collusion - Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III, March 2019.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp. Obama sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood
queer liberal democrat donors.

President Trump has boosted the economy, reduced illegal immigration,
appointed dozens of judges and created jobs.

Senile loser and NAMBLA supporter Nancy Pelosi got "Trumped" on February
5, 2020. "President Trump, Not Guilty."
