Never any fraud,,,,,,,

By Patrick Van Roy On January 5th, 2021

A former U.S. Congressman was charged in July with “stuffing” the ballot boxes in 2014, 2015 and 2016 primary elections.

According to prosecutors, Michael “Ozzie” Myers (D-Penn.) conspired with and bribed the former Judge of Elections for the 39th Ward, 36th Division, Domenick J. Demuro, who oversaw all federal and local elections in his area.

Demuro pleaded guilty.

Here’s how prosecutors say the operation worked. (These allegations are accusations and are not considered proven in a court of law.)

Myers acted as a “consultant” for federal, state and local political candidates, including some running for judgeships.

Myers used a portion of his “consulting fees” to bribe Demuro and others “in return for tampering with election results.”

The payments to Demuro ranged from $300 to $5,000 per election.

Demuro would “illegally add votes for certain candidates of their mutual party [Democrats] in primary elections.”

Demuro would “add fraudulent votes on the voting machine – also known as ‘ringing up’ votes” for Myers’ clients and preferred candidates.”

At Myers’ direction, Demuro would add these fraudulent votes to the totals during Election Day, and then would later falsely certify that the voting machine results were accurate. 

Myers, now in his 70s, was expelled from Congress in 1980 after reportedly taking a bribe in the infamous FBI Abscam case.
