DOJ Announces Charges Against Fmr Democrat Congressman For Ballot Stuffing, Bribery & Obstruction


Michael “Ozzie” Myers, 77, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is charged with conspiring with and bribing the former Judge of Elections for the 39th Ward, 36th Division, Domenick J. Demuro.

Demuro has already pleaded guilty in federal court to a complete litany of crimes. He was responsible for voting operation and all voter activities within his realm. Acting Assistant Attorney General Rabbitt of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division said:

“Free and fair elections are the hallmark of our system of government. The Department of Justice has zero tolerance for corruption of the electoral process, and we will spare no effort in investigating and prosecuting those who would seek an unfair advantage at the polls by bribing state and local officials responsible for ensuring the fairness of our elections.”

U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania said:

“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. If only one vote has been illegally rung up or fraudulently stuffed into a ballot box, the integrity of that entire election is undermined. Votes are not things to be purchased and democracy is not for sale. If you are a political consultant, election official, or work with the polling places in any way, I urge you to do your job honestly and faithfully. That is what the public deserves, it is what democracy demands, and it is what my office will enforce.”

Demuro was bribed to run up the tallies on the voting machines which is a ‘higher tech method of ballot box stuffing. He is awaiting sentencing after he pleaded guilty to two counts involving voter fraud in the city of Philadelphia.
