PHILADELPHIA United States Attorney William M. McSwain announced today that former U.S. Congressman Michael Ozzie Myers, 77, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has been charged by Indictment with multiple counts, including conspiring to violate voting rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific Democratic candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Pennsylvania primary elections, bribery of an election official, falsification of records, voting more than once in federal elections, and obstruction of justice. U.S. Attorney McSwains video statement providing additional details about this case is available on the Office website here: https://www.justice.gov/usao-edpa/video/us-attorney-william-m-mcswain-announces-indictment-former-congressman-election-fraud.
Specifically, Myers is alleged to have bribed the Judge of Elections for the 39th Ward, 36th Division in South Philadelphia, Domenick J. Demuro, in a fraudulent scheme over several years. Demuro, who was charged separately and pleaded guilty in May 2020, was responsible for overseeing the entire election process and all voter activities of his Division in accord with federal and state election laws.
The voting machines at each polling station, including in the 39th Ward, 36th Division, generate records in the form of a printed receipt documenting the use of each voting machine. This printed receipt, also known as the results receipt, shows the vote totals, and the Judge of Elections and other Election Board Officials at each polling place attest to the accuracy of machine results.
Myers is charged with bribing Demuro to illegally add votes for certain candidates of their mutual political party in primary elections. 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. According to the Indictment, Myers would solicit payments from his clients in the form of cash or checks as consulting fees, and then use portions of these funds to pay Demuro and others to tamper with election results.
After receiving payments ranging from between $300 to $5,000 per election from Myers, Demuro would add fraudulent votes on the voting machine also known as ringing up votes for Myers clients and preferred candidates, thereby diluting the value of ballots cast by actual voters. 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 is also accused of directing Demuro to lie to investigators about the circumstances of the bribes and the ballot-stuffing scheme.
McSwain is a great fighter for law and order.
What PARTY...what COLOR?
At 77 years of age I don’t think any black inmate would want any of that. But then u never know.
Soooo...what PARTY and wha COLOR??
Tip of the tip of the tip of a gargantuan iceberg.
With a name like “Ozzie” Myers he’s got to be white. Looked him up on Duckduckgo. He is. Now if we only had equal justice before the law, there’d be a bunch of ‘Rats arrested, too....of all colors, shades and hues.
Finally!! Now what PARTY?
That is the picture of U.S. Attorney McSwain, he is an R.
Myers is alleged to have bribed the Judge of Elections.
Going to a lot of going on this election democrats remove freezer money ready for pay outs.
The charges are obviously trumped up. We have repeatedly been told by our Betters that election tampering and fraud do not happen. Therefore, the allegations did not happen.
Shut up, sit down, and listen to you Betters in the MSM.
