An election official in Philadelphia has been charged with stuffing ballot boxes—for years. The man was getting paid to add phony votes to elections during races in 2014, 2015, and 2016. The DOJ took him down, exposing this shocking level of voter fraud. This case shatters the left’s ongoing claims that this kind of thing doesn’t happen.
Let’s face it: the strength of our democracy rests on Americans’ trust in free and open elections. Anything that can jeopardize our faith that election results are fair and accurate can decimate our entire system (and way of life).
That’s why conservatives are so concerned with voter fraud. Numerous states have weak policy (i.e.: no voter ID laws), that open the door to election tampering. Now, Pelosi and her liberal goons want to fund mail-in voting, something that have serious vulnerabilities.
But these clowns keep saying we’re crazy for worrying about something that never happens! Mkay, Democrats. Then how do you explain this election official, who was paid for years to sway numerous races?
United States Attorney William M. McSwain announced on Thursday that Domenick J. DeMuro, a Judge of Elections in Philadelphia, has been charged with and pleaded guilty to stuffing ballot boxes over the course of several years with fraudulent votes for Democrat candidates in federal, state, and local elections.
“During his guilty plea hearing, DeMuro admitted that an unnamed political consultant gave DeMuro directions and paid him money to illegally add votes for certain Democratic candidates… These candidates were individuals running for judicial office whose campaigns had hired the consultant, as well as other candidates for various federal, state, and local elective offices who were preferred by this consultant for a variety of reasons.” [Source: Daily Wire]
This is pretty bad. We normally worry about illegal aliens committing voter fraud, here or there. Or Democratic activist groups trying to “ballot harvest” once and while. But this was an election official taking bribes to violate elections. It’s so much worse than we thought.
Election officials, like all government officials, take an oath. Their job is arguably one of the most important ones in our democracy. They swear to protect the election process, so that Americans can trust the results. Yet this goon was taking money to literally stuff the ballot boxes.
According to the report, “he would add the fraudulent votes by literally standing in the voting booth and voting over and over and over again.” That’s the equivalent of jamming a bunch of fake paper ballots into the box. DeMuro was paid anywhere between $300 to $5,000 per election. I guess that’s the cost of his integrity, a few thousand dollars?
The real kicker? The elections we know he interfered with were the Democratic primary races from 2014, 2015, and 2016. Meaning Democrats should be particularly outraged, because this man violated the results of races within their own party.
Ironic, huh? The people who keep claiming voter fraud doesn’t happen were the biggest victims of it. Maybe, if they had bothered to be as vigilant as Republicans, this guy would have been caught a long time ago? How many people are in power, right now, who shouldn’t be?
According to the DOJ, DeMuro’s cheating amounted to as much as 22% of total voting for some races. That’s more than enough to sway a candidate from loser to winner.
Now think about what Democrats are trying to do this November. They want to suddenly impose a brand-new, unvetted system of mail-in voting. A system that doesn’t require a person to show up at a poll and provide an ID. They have gone way out on a limb to make sure people who shouldn’t be voting can gobble up as many ballots as they can and fill them out.
Oh, but there’s no chance of fraud, right?
