DOJ Announces Charges Against Philadelphia Election Official For Stuffing Ballot Box With Fraudulent Votes To Help Democrat Candidates

(Gateway Pundit) – The Justice Department on Thursday announced charges against a Philadelphia election official for “fraudulently” stuffing ballot boxes to help Democrat candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections.

Domenick J. DeMuro, 73, of Philadelphia, PA, a former Judge of Elections for the 39th Ward, 36th Division in South Philadelphia, has been charged and has pled guilty to a 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), US Attorney William M. McSwain announced on Thursday.

DeMuro admitted in his guilty plea that he was actually paid by an unnamed political consultant to illegally add votes for certain Democrat candidates.

DeMuro received between $300 to $5,000 per election from the political consultant under the guise of “consulting fees” in exchange for adding fraudulent votes on the voting machines — also known as “ringing up” votes.

“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. This is utterly reprehensible conduct. The charges announced today do not erase what he did, but they do ensure that he is held to account for those actions,” said U.S. Attorney McSwain.

“This defendant abused his office by engaging in election fraud for profit,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “Today’s conviction makes it clear that the Department of Justice will do all in its power to protect the integrity of elections and maintain public confidence in all levels of elected government.”

How could this be? The Democrat-media complex tells us that voter fraud is just a right-wing conspiracy theory.


  1. INCREDIBLE! While everyone is whining here with their own political ax to grind, I didn’t hear one peep that anyone was interested in who was this “unnamed political consultant?”

    And who was paying that guy?

  2. What was this guys punishment ? Any person serving in a capacity of trust for the government and violates that trust should be punished severely. That’s the only way to stop politicians from committing crimes.

  3. Uhhh – what part of PLED GUILTY did you miss? If this is your democracy, plase leave the country.

    “DeMuro admitted in his guilty plea that he was actually paid by an unnamed political consultant to illegally add votes for certain Democrat candidates.”

  4. It’s not fraud to add mail-in ballots to the vote totals, wrongly called ballot box stuffing here. The attempt is to smear a Democratic stronghold around Philly as illegitimate. Since when are military ballots mailed from abroad, fraudulent? The nattering nabobs of negativism abound again despite crooked intensions, ala outlaw Spiro Agnew in the 1970s. Can’t Republicans win an election with dirt, voter suppression, gerrymandering and all the other nonsense shennanigans that emerge in election campaign seasons? No wonder they favor Trump who’s the epitome of charlatan and illicit talk and acting. This is our democracy, not some phony reality show Trump’s familiar with. Don’t be his ‘enabler’ in this obsessive compulsive syndromic presidency seeking reelection after pandemic and economic recession.

    • I don’t think it was Trump that caught this guy. But as always blame Trump. It’s the easiest out.

    • Doc, a fair election is all that is wanted by anyone eligible to vote. You obviously did not read the article above the comment line. This judge pled GUILTY to the charges and said not one Damon thing about absent votes.
      This type of behaviour happens every election cycle and more times than not, democrats are the guilty party. Why? Well let’s start with the platforms your party runs always include higher taxes,,and more grandiose welfare handouts. Instead of providing programs to help the needy, black and other minorities, you ship money that is quickly siphoned off by you greedy politicians, Black and white.
      My proof, look at Baltimore, black congressman, black mayor and a federal grant for a huge sum of money that did not get to the black community because the mayor, congressman and governor (also a democrat) stole it and pocketed the money, leaving the black community to starve, well unless they went into the drug dealing business or armed robbery which landed way too many in jail.

      No thank you dr. We have had enough of your kind of help

    • Are you as dishonest as many in the Democrat Party? It certainly looks like it. No matter how you do it, tampering with votes is not legal.

    • He’s trying to serve you the demo-flavored kill-aid.

      But hey, I wouldn’t try talking to him as they partially lobotomize thier subjects. Irrecoverable. Pour soul. Just wasting your time here.

    • dr needs to go back to school ,who is it that comes up after elections close with the very amount of votes their losing by to overturn a loss is always always in the democrats favor ,oh look we found bags of votes in a closet ,oh we found bags of votes in a trunk of car ,once election polls close none should be counted it promotes fraud and is vever in favor of republicans ,if it happens once or twice its a coincidence if it happens 3 or more and overturns elections its a pattern, the dems push for vote by mail with no identity to check just mail in frauduent votes they push for no id to vote to get more illegal votes by non citizens ,only citizens legal citizens can vote ,and using the media to push an election a certain way should be criminal ,news is to be reported not opinionated to sway viewers with false information
