Former Pennsylvania Congressman Michael “Ozzie” Myers pleaded guilty to voter fraud.
Fox News reports:
Former U.S. Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers, 79, of Philadelphia, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, obstruction of justice, falsification of voting records, and conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election, the Justice Department announced Monday.
Myers admitted to bribing an elections judge, Domenick Demuro, in a voter fraud scheme over several years. Demuro pleaded guilty in May 2020 and was convicted for his role in accepting bribes to cast fraudulent ballots and certify false voting results.
Myers also admitted to conspiring to commit election fraud with another elections judge, Marie Beren, who pleaded guilty to the scheme in October 2021.
“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy,” U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams said in a press release. “If even one vote has been illegally cast or if the integrity of just one election official is compromised, it diminishes faith in process.”
Myers was expelled from Congress in 1980 after being caught taking bribes.
