    Election meddling story ahead


    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.

    aCLDuring 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,aCY the Department
    of Justice said in a statement. aCLThese 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.aCY

    The statement said that DeMuro pleaded guilty to aCLa two-count
    Information charging (1) conspiracy to deprive Philadelphia voters of
    their civil rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for
    specific Democratic candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary
    elections, and (2) a violation of 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).aCY

    In announcing the charges, McSwain highlighted the responsibilities of DeMuroaCOs role, which primarily centered around aCLoverseeing the entire election process and voter activities of his or her divisionaCY and
    ensuring that election results are accurate and untainted.

    aCLOur election system relies on the honesty and the integrity of its
    election officials,aCY McSwain said. aCLIf they are corrupt, the system is corrupt, which creates opportunities for election fraud and
    unfortunately the counting of fake votes. Domenick DeMuro did not uphold
    his duties as an election official.aCY

    aCLAfter receiving payments ranging from between $300 and $5,000 per
    election from the consultant, DeMuro would add fraudulent votes on the
    voting machines, also known as ringing up votes, for the consultantaCOs
    clients and preferred candidates thereby diluting and distorting the
    ballots that were cast by actual voters,aCY McSwain **** continued.
    aCLDeMuro would add these fraudulent votes to the totals during election
    day and then he 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 and over again as
    fast as he could when he thought that the coast was clear.aCY

    aCLIn May 2014, DeMuro stuffed the ballot box with 27 fraudulent ballots
    during the primary election. In May 2015, he padded the ballot box with
    40 fraudulent votes. In 2016, it was 46 fraudulent votes,aCY McSwain said. aCLNow these numbers may sound relatively small, but they made up a
    significant percentage of the total votes that were cast at the polling
    place. In 2014, 118 total ballots were reported in the 36th Division of
    the 39th Ward. That means that DeMuroaCOs 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 total votes in the division. In
    2016, his fraud accounted for over 17% of the votes.aCY

    The news comes as Democrats across the country are pushing for mass-
    scale mail-in voting for the upcoming elections. Many top officials have serious concerns about mail-in voting due to the opportunity that it
    allegedly creates for fraud.

    Between 2012 and 2018, 28.3 million mail-in ballots remain unaccounted
    for, according to data from the federal Election Assistance Commission.
    The missing ballots amount to nearly one in five of all absentee ballots
    and ballots mailed to voters residing in states that do elections
    exclusively by mail.

    States and local authorities simply have no idea what happened to
    these ballots since they were mailed aCo and the figure of 28 million
    missing ballots is likely even higher because some areas in the country, notably Chicago, did not respond to the federal agencyaCOs survey

    Watchdog groups say that the sheer volume of unaccounted for mail-in
    ballots create serious concerns about election security and being able
    to guarantee that elections are conducted with integrity.

    In 2018, Texas law enforcement officials arrested several women for
    allegedly targeting elderly voters in 2016 in a aCLvoter fraud ringaCY that
    was funded by a Democratic Party leader.

    Just shocking. And just think the D's are pushing to make it purely mail-in voting.

    No, really not that shocking.
