Well, here we go again with fraud in a Pennsylvania election.
Not just one, though.
Former Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers (D-PA) orchestrated a ballot-stuffing scheme in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 elections.
Nothing to See Here
Myers, 79, pleaded guilty to the charges and has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.
He was also sentenced to three years of supervised release and $100,000 in fines.
He had bribed then-Philadelphia election judge Domenick J. Demuro to stuff ballots for specific candidates to benefit the Democrat Party.
Demoro pleaded guilty to the charges in 2020.
FBI Philadelphia Division Special Agent in Charge Jacqueline Maguire stated, “Protecting the legitimacy of elections is critical to ensuring the public’s trust in the process.
“Through his actions, Ozzie Myers pointedly disdained both the will of Philadelphia voters and the rule of law.
“He’s now a federal felon twice over, heading back behind bars, with time to consider the great consequence of free and fair elections.”

Pennsylvania has long been known for the corruption in its elections, especially in the Philadelphia area.
Yet, everyone wants us all to believe nothing was wrong in 2020.
Again, I am not saying there was enough to overturn the election, but I have maintained throughout the local elections are suspect and it warrants a complete and transparent investigation.
