Former Dem Congressman Jailed Over Voter Fraud Charges

Linkedin Share

As with each and every election in the United States, the 2022 midterms will almost certainly bring with them a grand discussion regarding voter fraud – specifically, its impact on these electoral contests.

Except if you’re a Democrat. Then, most of the conversation will be dismissive drivel telling the rest of the nation not to worry about voter fraud at all.  Or, worse yet, they’ll spend an inordinate amount of time and effort attempting to suggest that it doesn’t even exist.

This is usually an embarrassing figurative hill for the left to die one, particularly as they seem to be some of the most frequent beneficiaries of the practice. 

A former Pennsylvania congressman was sentenced to over two years in jail for committing election fraud aimed at helping Democratic candidates.

“Protecting the legitimacy of elections is critical to ensuring the public’s trust in the process,” FBI Philadelphia Division Special Agent in Charge Jacqueline Maguire said in a press release last week. “Through his actions, Ozzie Myers pointedly disdained both the will of Philadelphia voters and the rule of law. He’s now a federal felon twice over, heading back behind bars, with time to consider the great consequence of free and fair elections.”

Former Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers pleaded guilty to frequently stuffing ballots, conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election and deprive civil rights, voting records falsification, and bribery in favor of Democratic candidates, according to a Department of Justice press release. He carried out the schemes in Pennsylvania during the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 elections, the DOJ said.

Myers is no stranger to controversy, either.

Myers served in the U.S. House between 1976 and 1980 but was expelled from Congress for bribery and served three years in prison.

Myers will be jailed for 30 months, face three years of supervised release, and pay a fine of $100,000 for his election-centric crimes.
