Pennsylvania Democrat sentenced to 30 months in prison for election fraud

A former Pennsylvania Democrat has been sentenced to 30 months in jail after committing election fraud.

Michael "Ozzie" Myers pleaded guilty to conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election, voting falsification and related crimes in the state's elections between 2014 and 2018.

"United States Attorney Jacqueline C. Romero announced today that former U.S. Congressman Michael “Ozzie” Myers, 79, of Philadelphia, PA, was sentenced to 30 months in prison, three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay $100,000 in fines, with $10,000 of that due immediately," the Department of Justice said in a press release.

The ruling was "by United States District Court Judge Paul S. Diamond after pleading guilty to conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, obstruction of justice, falsification of voting records, conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election, and for orchestrating schemes to fraudulently stuff the ballot boxes for specific Democratic candidates in the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 Pennsylvania elections."

While many Democrats have argued against any past election fraud, the conviction shows that it has sometimes occurred.

The fallout could be bad for the left in Pennsylvania as the Senate race remains tight and the news of the conviction could send even more voters to show up on election day.
