(Liberty Bell) – A corrupt Democratic Party congressman who was booted from his post years ago due to criminal behavior has now admitted to new charges of election-fraud after he allegedly tossed some money to election judges in two wards of Philadelphia to stuff ballot boxes with fake votes for the candidates he wanted to win.
This is the kind of thing that is rampant in the Democratic Party. Unfortunately, despite all of the evidence in our possession, it seems nobody is going to take this issue seriously, which means our election system is going to continue being compromised.
Broadcaster WHYY released a report that revealed Michael “Ozzie” Myers, 79, tried to control the outcome of election results for several political races back in 2014 and in 2018. If you have to cheat to win, it’s a safe bet that your policies and the ideology they are based upon are nothing but junk.
“One judge, Domenick J. Demuro, who was charged separately and also pleaded guilty, would certify fraudulent voting machine receipts as valid after adding fake votes for various candidates who had hired Myers for so-called consultancy services,” the report went on to say.
According to a report from WND, “The bribes ranged from $300 to $5,000 to falsify vote totals for candidates running for different local, state and federal offices, including candidates for the judiciary.”
The report then went on to explain that Myers drove Marie Beren, another election judge, to a polling location on the day of the election and gave her specific instructions on which candidates should receive how many additional — and very fake — votes.
“The counts to which Myers admitted guilt include conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, falsification of voting records, conspiring to illegally vote, and obstruction of justice,” the WND report said.
“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. If even one vote has been illegally cast or if the integrity of just one election official is compromised, it diminishes faith in process,” U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams went on to state. “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 and what the federal government will enforce.”
Authorities did not reveal whether or not Myer’s scheme had any real bearing on the results of specific races. However, testimony confirmed that the fake votes, at times, amounted to a whopping 22 percent of the overall vote total. That’s significant.
“Myers was not, in fact, a stranger to the judicial system. He went to prison in the 1980s for accepting a bribe in the infamous Abscam sting. The case ended his career in Congress, representing Pennsylvania’s 1st congressional district, in 1980,” the report said.
That same case also had some bribery and vote influence operations involved with it.

He also managed to deliver one of the most infamous and memorable quotes during the entire incident when he stated, “Money talks in this business and bulls*** walks.” Gee, what a charming fellow.
This comment was made while he was taking a $50,000 bribe. It seems these people have no personal moral convictions, no sense of right and wrong. Money and power are their main motivations for everything they do.
Based on this conviction, the U.S. House voted to kick Myers to the curb.
McCall.com went on to explain that prosecutors confirmed his “criminal efforts were generally, although not exclusively, directed at securing election victories for local judicial candidates running for Philadelphia’s Court of Common Pleas or Municipal Court who had employed Myers as a ‘political consultant.'”
