Democratic Party Official Admits He Took Bribes To Stuff Ballot Boxes

Share

The US Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia obtained a guilty plea from a Democratic Party elections judge, who admitted to taking bribes to stuff ballot boxes in favor of Democratic candidates in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

According to the Department of Justice, 73-year-old Domenick J. DeMuro was indicted for “conspiracy to deprive Philadelphia voters of their civil rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific Democratic candidates,” as well as violating the Travel Act, which “forbids the use of any facility in interstate commerce (here, a cell phone) with the intent to promote certain illegal activity (here, bribery).”

DeMuro charged up to $5,000 per election to rig the votes for an unnamed “political consultant,” who in turn charged his clients “consulting fees” which were used to pay off multiple Election Board Officials.

The Judge of Elections is an elective office and a paid position. In that role, DeMuro was responsible for overseeing the entire election process and voter activities of his Division. The Judge of Elections is charged with overseeing the Division’s polling place in accordance with federal and state election laws and is required to attend Election Board Training conducted by the Philadelphia City Commissioners.

The voting machines at each polling station, including DeMuro’s station, generate records in the form of a printed receipt documenting the use of each voting machine. The printed receipt, also known as the “results receipt,” shows the vote totals, and the Judge of Elections and other Election Board Officials at each polling place attest to the accuracy of machine results.

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. –DOJ

DeMuro fraudulently stuffed the ballot box by literally standing in a voting booth and voting over and over, as fast as he could, while he thought the coast was clear,” said US Attorney William M. McSwain. “Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. If even one vote is fraudulently rung up, the integrity of that election is compromised.”

      There may be an honest Democrat, but not an intelligent one. If they vote for any of the following: 1. giving all immigrants the benefits available for citizens, 2. free medical care for everyone, 3. free college for everyone and 4. no repayment of college loans, they are like the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz. Just in case you are literature-deprived, that means they have no brain.

    I do believe that this isn’t the only incidence that mirrors the lengths that the Democrat party will go to in efforts to get what they want. NOT what the people want…just the Democrats. It is all about changing this beautiful country into a socialist country which I will add, they are not quiet about. It is here, at this point, that we as American citizens must do our very best to curb ‘mail in votes’. We must always remind ourselves, “If we can go to the grocery store and the home improvement stores, we can vote”. God Bless America

      Bear, I think you might have the right idea. Seems like about the time know it all people started telling us not to discipline children, just love them, well, that was followed by the beginning of most of Americas problems. I think this traitor (he betrayed the trust we gave him) needs a well deserved trip to the wood shed. A little discipline is not a bad thing for children. Like the saying goes “An ounce of discipline is worth a pound of cure!” Now this creep needs to have some cure pounded into his worthless hide.

    Down to the nitty-gritty: establish the facts before the debate. Democrats have become socialists. They all believe in the redistribution of wealth… Everyone’s but their own that is. Note that the distributors always pass the meager alms through the window of their limousine while the rest of the world staggers along behind gathering the crumbs. Such is the nature of socialism in the party of the people. It is comprised of the distributors (confiscators) and the recipients. The distributors live in opulence… The recipients live in poverty. Exquisite display of human existence isn’t it? The socialist distributors at the top of the food chain are always life’s mediocrities. They cannot compete with the superlative to retain their position of authority, so they castrate it. It is the only method of survival for the Leech. They will do whatever it takes, including voter fraud, and even assassination if it is necessary to retain their undeserved power. The only thing that makes all of this possible are the mindless, feckless, pusillanimous pipsqueaks that comprise the American voter base. The moral of the story is… We always get exactly the kind of government we deserve!

    Do we need to grab our muskets and run to Concord, again? I hope it doesn’t come to that, but it looks as if the only thing that will convince the socialists and communists (disguised as Democrats) they are not welcome here is a swift kick in the rear end. Be careful because I think they would just love to see gun battles and bloodshed on American streets. That might be the aim to all the crap they have pulled recently, have us kill each other so they can just walk in and take over when the dust settles. I would not doubt it at all.

If we allow them to get mail in voting because of this fake crisis then might as well move to another country or be ready to die with your boots on.

    I’m glad to read that this election official was investigated and prosecuted. Corruption by anyone — of any party — should be ‘unmasked’ and prosecuted, and that will make our elections even safer and make corruption harder and harder to achieve. And random, deep audits of precincts, elections and vote tallies must continue.
    – I serve as a poll worker in Ohio, and I hope all states adopt processes like those we use, which require one R & one D election official watching at the polling place when each person signs in and is issued a SINGLE ballot [hardcopy or electronic].
    – At 2 different times in Ohio, including the end of the voting day, a record is printed at each precinct, of all voters who were issued ballots [not their votes, of course]. The practice described in the article [“literally standing in a voting booth and voting over and over”] would be prevented [without someone bribing an entire crew of people affiliated with both parties].
    Again, the more we track and run audits, and investigate and prosecute issues, the cleaner our elections will be, from anyone with corrupt intent.

    Every voter with own computer should check Judicial Watch, and find all the states found with incorrect, registered voting numbers. Judicial Watch reviews and questions states who show counties , or states, where 105% to 140% more votes recorded, then was on voting rolls when cycle started. ( voter registration through DMV, same day registering at the polls, leads to fraud possible, and accepted practice. Fraud does occur in every election. (Too many votes are cast in last hours of voting period, to be accepted as good, honest voting). And too many locked boxes are found at last moment, in trunks of cars, that were over looked or unaccounted for, to be believable.
    ———-Too many people are involved with registration, and around the election process, for it not to have bad actors, and fraud. Average voter has problems with work, home, families, and does not get that involved with politics. But we all acknowledge that politics is complicated, and complex. Too much of the work done at county, city,, state, federal, is not understood by average citizen. And, as in this case, dishonest election judges are found dishonest. (I live in Colorado, with Absentee Voting being normal, but we have seen and know that this system has been corrupted, when Democrats go to court to prevent Secretary of State from correcting voter rolls, cycle after cycle. Always on basis of “Suppression of Voting rolls”. But this has never been proved that I know of, from 1977 to Present, as Colorado Citizen.

    The Democrats, especially Nancy Pelosi wants all mail in voting. Ok. If she demand that, then we the citizens should demand that all mail in votes must included that you are a registered voter and a citizen of the US. If mail in votes are to be counted the voter roles must be purged 3 months prior to a general election. Hopefully these steps will minimize voter fraud. Don’t want to hear voter suppression from these idiots that’s is too expensive. The Democrats are too expensive. Fair is fair.Period.

    Just think…this incident was only one of perhaps thousands of other voting stations that “when the coast is clear” affect changes in the election process. I can remember about 75 years ago, I saw people walking around in a cemetery writing down the names of the deceased in the grave. When I asked one of the men writing down the names of the deceased, why he was doing that, he told me it was an effort to see how many of the graves were for veterans of the military forces. I believed him. But now, the Democrat Party has expanded their efforts by busing people to vote in several counties or in other states. I am a firm believer that a voter must be verily identified including a signed statement that the voter was in fact a registered voter in that particular precinct. By God, if people can do their shopping and/or buying food to take out during this pandemic, then they could sure as hell go to the voting polls and do their voting safely and honestly. That should be a Federal law to allow only those citizens who actually live in other countries (servicemen and their families, government officials and their families, and select citizens whose daily duty requires them to be out of the state or country. Proof of a person unable to go to the voting polls because of illness should be verified by a registered physician) The Democrats have a reputation of doing anything, honest or dishonest, legal or illegal, or bribing other Democrats to do their dirty work to defeat the Republicans. If we want the USA to remain anti-socialist or anti-communist, then we must vote for Republican candidates and force the Democommies out.

    How? Through gerrymandering, suppression of minority votes , making it more difficult for blacks and Hispanics to vote , deliberate failure to count their votes , not to mention the continued existence of our long obsolete and racist E;sectoral College , which no longer serves nay purpose but to allow presidential candidates who lose the popular vote to be elected .
    Trump lost the popular vote by three million to the infinitely better qualified Hillary Clinton . And this country is paying the price for electing a totally unqualified blithering idiot president of the United States ! You can bet the Repugnicans ( what they should be called ) will use the same dirty tricks this November .

    Robert Berger, you must be one of the Braindead Democratic Party of Retarded Zombies, everything you write was nothing but what the MSM and the DNC has said and was proven to be false. You must not have any clue as to how our National Elections are held, much less as to why there is the Electorial College. The College was put in place by the Constitution of the United States to ensure that everyone vote meant something, each state has as many electors as they have members of the House. This keeps the States with the larger populations from being the only voice heard in a National Election. Trump won because the majority of States Elected him not just New York and California. It ensures that your vote, if you lived in Kansas is just as important as someone’s vote in New York. Quit being one of the Braindead, learn and research, so you will see that the Democrats have made the same promises to people for a hundred years and has not fulfilled one to this day.

I don’t know if this would be possible but change things so the experienced and corrupt cheaters get caught and go to jail for a very long time. No more wrist slapping, either!

Does anyone out there fact check anything. Trump does not want mail in votes then all of a sudden they find someone stuffed ballots. Great timing and quit obviously connect Ed. Biden ahead in polls and then all of a sudden they find someone to accuse him of sexual assault. Timing again. You are all intelligent people.
