Ex-judge of elections in Pa. accepted bribes, ‘fraudulently stuffed the ballot box’

One of the Democrat party’s traditional, and favorite, election tactics have been cheating to win, and it has gotten a Pennsylvania judge in some hot water.

The former judge of elections and Democratic committee-person who hails from South Philadelphia pleaded guilty to taking thousands of dollars’ worth of bribes to stuff the ballot box in 2015 for three Democrat candidates for Common Please Court, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

He did the same for other Democrat candidates for other offices in 2014 and 2016, U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain said on Thursday.

Our election system relies on the honesty and integrity of its Election Officials. If they are corrupt, the system is corrupt, which creates opportunities for election fraud and for the counting of fake votes.

Domenick DeMuro did not uphold his duties as an Election Official. A political consultant gave DeMuro directions and paid him money to illegally add votes for certain Democratic candidates on the primary ballots in 2014, 2015, and 2016. 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.

The political consultant would allegedly solicit monetary payments from his clients in the form of cash or checks as “consulting fees.” The consultant would then take portions of these funds and make payments to Election Board Officials, including DeMuro, in return for DeMuro and other Election Board officials tampering with the election results.

After receiving payments ranging from between $300 to $5,000 per election from the consultant, DeMuro would add fraudulent votes on the voting machine – also known as “ringing up” votes – for the consultant’s clients and preferred candidates, thereby diluting and distorting the ballots cast by actual voters. DeMuro would add these fraudulent votes to the totals during Election Day, and then would later falsely certify that the voting machine results were accurate. He would add the fraudulent votes by literally standing in the voting booth and voting over and over, as fast as he could when he thought the coast was clear.

In May 2014, DeMuro stuffed the ballot box with 27 fraudulent ballots during the primary election. In May 2015, DeMuro padded the ballot box with 40 fraudulent votes; in 2016, it was 46 fraudulent votes. These numbers may sound relatively small, but they made up a significant percentage of the total votes cast at the polling place. In 2014, 118 total ballots were reported in the 36th Division of the 39th Ward. That means that DeMuro’s fraudulent votes accounted for over 22% of the total voting in that Division in 2014. In 2015, his fraud accounted for over 15% of the votes in the Division; in 2016, his fraud accounted for over 17% of the votes.

That is the Democrat hustle. Lie cheat and steal until you win. It is no wonder they believe it is OK for you to go to Walmart but you have to vote by mail.
