Democrat Jailed for Election Fraud
(TheRedWire.com) – Democrats and the mainstream media continue to say that election fraud is rare or non-existent. Yet, despite that claim, the Department of Justice (DOJ) recently obtained a conviction against an ex-Democratic congressman for committing election fraud to help Democratic candidates. Former Rep. Michael Myers (D-PA), known by his nickname “Ozzie,” has a racy history. He served in Congress from 1976 to 1980 before the House expelled him for bribery, which ultimately led to a three-year prison sentence. Now, the DOJ has secured another conviction against him for election fraud.
On Tuesday, September 27, the DOJ released a statement announcing the former congressman and Democratic political operative pleaded guilty to several crimes. Among them were bribery, falsifying voter records, voting illegally, conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, and stuffing ballot boxes for Democrats. Prosecutors said the 79-year-old perpetrated the crimes in Pennsylvania elections from 2014 through 2018.
Democrats and election fraud. They go together like ham and eggs, don’t they?

FBI Special Agent Jacqueline Maguire said protecting the integrity of elections is essential to ensure public trust. She noted that Myers expressed disdain for “Philadelphia voters and the rule of law.” Maguire pointed out that Myers is now a two-time federal felon who’s going back to jail to consider the “consequence of free and fair elections.”
Judge Paul S. Diamond, a US District Court magistrate, sentenced Myers to 30 months in jail and three years of supervised release. Additionally, he ordered him to pay $100,000 in fines.
