Democrats Paid Pennsylvania Election Officials to Stuff Ballot Box


A former Judge of Elections in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has been charged and pleaded guilty to illegally adding votes for Democrat candidates in judicial races in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

On Thursday, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced charges against former Judge of Elections Domenick DeMuro, 73, for stuffing the ballot box for Democrats in exchange for payment by a paid political consultant.

The charges, and guilty plea, include conspiracy to deprive Philadelphia voters of their civil rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific Democrat candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections and a violation of the Travel Act.

“The Trump administration’s prosecution of election fraud stands in stark contrast to the total failure of the Obama Justice Department to enforce these laws,” Public Interest Legal Foundation President Christian Adams said in a statement. “Right now, other federal prosecutors are aware of cases of double voting in federal elections as well as noncitizen voting. Attorney General William Barr should prompt those other offices to do their duty and prosecute known election crimes.”

As Judge of Elections, DeMuro was paid to oversee the election process in the 39th Ward, which encompasses Philadelphia.

DeMuro’s guilty plea states that he was paid by a political consultant to illegally add votes for particular Democrat candidates in primary judicial races. The political consultant who allegedly paid DeMuro had been hired by those Democrat candidates.

According to the indictment, the political consultant allegedly solicited payments from Democrat candidates who hired him, classifying them as “consulting fees.” The payments — which ranged from $300 to $5,000 — were then allegedly used to pay Election Board Officials, such as DeMuro, in exchange for those officials illegally adding votes for the consultants’ Democrat candidates.

DeMuro admitted that he illegally added votes for Democrats on Election Day and then certified later that the votes counted were accurate.

“DeMuro fraudulently stuffed the ballot box by literally standing in a voting booth and voting over and over, as fast as he could, while he thought the coast was clear,” U.S. Attorney William McSwain said in a statement. “This is utterly reprehensible conduct. The charges announced today do not erase what he did, but they do ensure that he is held to account for those actions.”

The criminal complaint has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The case number is 2:20-cr-00112-PD.

    Again, Will the punishment "fit" the crime, in this land? (Voter fraud should be amongst the highest of crimes in this land) (Notice, I am saying, "land" as opposed to "Country" which does not at this time exist any more) (Certainly not recognizable.) Where there is no real justice. (Justice to fit the crime) Then there is no longer a country; But on paper. All voter crime and fraud should be "foundational" in law. "Top Priority, against fraud." "Should have been." Again, Past tense. What does it matter if there is one set of laws for some people, but not not everyone? Enjoy. Get well soon Hal

    Voting by mail looks a lot like the free sample tables at the grocery store. Crackers with a new cream cheese spread, free to shoppers. Special price. Sometimes its hot dog slices with BBQ sauce. Shoppers take a sample.
    But what if it's a really delicious, medium rare, pink, roast beef sample, with a tantalizing horse radish sauce? Or jumbo shrimp. Or lobster? Some shoppers will have their ethic seriously challenged, legitimately torn between the one sample per customer rule, and if they are going to purchase the product anyway, justifying even a second, or even a third, sample.
    Tell me why voting by mail is any different?
    Voting by mail will bring out the absolute worse in Americans.
    Those that passionately and vehemently hate President Trump will make it a passion to sample the roast beef, shrimp, and lobster as many times as they possibly can...and what's more everybody knows it.

      Doug, agreed. Voting by mail is ELECTION FRAUD ON STEROIDS.

      With so many dead Democraps voting, I guess by mail is more easily accomplished, as a mailman is easier to find than a spiritual medium.
      Get out the Zombie-Dem vote and vote often!

    This is nothing new. Typical Democrap BS. They've been doing this is Memphis for 3 decades and there's not enough conservatives left here to vote them out. The democraps can't win any election honestly so election fraud is the order of the day for them.
