Dem Congressman Pleads Guilty to Rigging Elections in PA

A former Democrat congressman, who was expelled from the House of Representatives in 1980 after getting caught taking bribes in what turned out to be an FBI sting, pleaded guilty to multiple election fraud charges this week after the U.S. Department of Justice charged him with bribery, falsifying voting records, stuffing ballot boxes, and more election crimes in Pennsylvania.

According to U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams, 79-year-old Michael “Ozzie” Myers admitted to bribing Philadelphia election judge Domenick J. Demuro, who already pleaded guilty in 2020, during the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 state elections for $300 to $5,000 per election and then telling him to lie about falsely inflating votes.

Demuro, who “was responsible for overseeing the entire election process and all voter activities of his Division in accord with federal and state election laws,” then manipulated the voting machines in his respective ward and division in a way that satisfied Myers’ desire to “illegally add votes for certain candidates of their mutual political party in primary elections,” especially those clients who paid him “consulting fees.”

“Some of these candidates were individuals running for judicial office whose campaigns had hired Myers, and others were candidates for various federal, state, and local elective offices that Myers favored for a variety of reasons,” the DOJ noted in a press release.

Myers pulled the same stunt with another South Philadelphia election judge Marie Beren, who also pleaded guilty in 2021 to her role in the fraud.

“Myers acknowledged in court that on almost every Election Day, Myers transported Beren to the polling station to open the polls. During the drive to the polling station, Myers would advise Beren which candidates he was supporting so that Beren knew which candidates should be receiving fraudulent votes. Inside the polling place and while the polls were open, Beren would advise actual in-person voters to support Myers’ candidates and also cast fraudulent votes in support of Myers’ preferred candidates on behalf of voters she knew would not or did not physically appear at the polls,” the DOJ stated.

The pair also used cell phone communication to notate in real-time how many votes they faked versus how many were real.

“If actual voter turnout was high, Beren would add fewer fraudulent votes in support of Myers’ preferred candidates. From time to time, Myers would instruct Beren to shift her efforts from one of his preferred candidates to another. Specifically, Myers would instruct Beren ‘to throw support’ behind another candidate during Election Day if he concluded that his first choice was comfortably ahead,” the press release continued.

Much like Demuro, Beren then falsified poll books “by recording the names, party affiliation, and order of appearances for voters who had not physically appeared at the polling station to cast his or her ballot in the election” and balanced the list with the ballots recorded by voting machines before certifying the tainted results.

Myers’ guilty plea adds to the long list of systemic voting issues and election law violations already plaguing Pennsylvania, where voters recently waited weeks to hear the results of the U.S. Senate Republican primary.

    • No, we should introduce banishment as a punishment with execution the penalty for ever setting foot on American soil again. These people don’t believe in democracy or the process unless they win. The Democratic party thinks it is ok to ignore the voice of the people if they can’t win honestly. There is no greater threat to democracy than ignoring the people, no matter what they think.

      • Yes, I agree with you, this story will never be heard on any major TV network or newspaper, which is a slap in the face for all Americans! The 2020 election was stolen, it will never be proven, but both sides know it was!!! I no longer have any confidence in our Federal Elections, and won’t until Republicans get back in power and restore law and order to this country!!

  1. And there they were this morning bad rapping PTRSIDENT Trump for him saying the fix was in in brandon’s election. and that was zero point no election fraud?

    Let’s see, Wasn;t it in PA where the President was leading when the poles were supposed to be closed but they kept counting votes until brandon won? Wasn’t it in Philly where a lot the the “extra” votes came from?

    Obviously there was no vote tampering in the presidential election. Just everywhere else.

    Something sure as hell don’t smell good here.

  2. A Democrat in Buchanan county ,Virginia indicted on 82 counts of election fraud. A second person charged with 12 counts of felony election fraud. It’s all over the country just as we knew.

  3. How can this be? Tom Wolf, the Progressive governor of PA with the Socialist Lt. Governor, has constantly chided Republicans for saying the elections are being rigged. In some cases, more votes were cast for Democrats than there are Democrat voters in that area. But Tom Wolf has made it clear that there are absolutely no indications of any type of election rigging going on in PA. I guess Tommy boy must have just missed this one. Makes one wonder how much else illegal Tom Wolf has missed when it comes to rigging elections.

  4. This story should be part of the evening news, instead of buried where most people won’t read it or believe it. This is a disgrace for our entire country, still a laughing stock to entire world!
