The corruption of Philly Democrats is worse than you can imagine. By Daniel Greenfield.
The media amplified stories about election fraud in Pennsylvania largely when it affected Democrat primaries. That same media is vocally denying that there could be any fraud now. …
In ’86, Councilman Lee Beloff, the son of a judge, was charged alongside his legislative aide, and mob boss “Little Nicky” Scarfo, with extorting $1 million and an apartment for his mistress. Less glamorously, Beloff was also indicted, along with his wife and two Democratic committee members for ” conspiracy, voting more than once and giving false information on voter registrations to elderly people living in a nursing home.”
Beloff had previously received a gubernatorial pardon for interfering with a poll watcher so he could run for public office. After serving 6 years of his 10 year sentence, Beloff got out and became a Democrat ward chairman.
“We stay loyal to our people,” a local Democratic ward leader said.
A photo last year from the Philly Public Record shows a meeting of the “combined 39th Ward Democratic organizations”. One of the photos is titled, “A South Philly Classic” and features Lee Beloff and Ozzie Myers.
Ozzie Meyers, a former Democrat Congressman who had been convicted of bribery and conspiracy, and spent three years in prison in the Abscam scandal, was indicted again this year for “conspiring to violate voting rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections, bribery of an election official, falsification of records, voting more than once in federal elections.”
Domenick J. Demuro, an election judge in the 39th Ward, pled guilty to having “accepted bribes in the form of money and other things of value in exchange for adding ballots to increase the vote totals for certain candidates on the voting machines in his jurisdiction and for certifying tallies of all the ballots, including the fraudulent ballots.” …
“Hispanics would sign anything,” Democrat campaign workers joked in the case that would lead to the state’s biggest absentee ballot fraud case. So of course it came out of Philly in the 90s.
William Stinson, an assistant Deputy Mayor to Mayor Ed Rendell, was running for a State Senate seat with Democrat control of the Senate at stake. A poll showed him 4% behind his Republican opponent and he allegedly ordered campaign workers to get black and Latino voters to sign absentee ballots.
Campaign workers were given a buck for every ballot, which they “helped” voters fill in.
Not satisfied to settle for actual voters, evidence was heard in court that workers had filled in the names of dead people and prison inmates.
When the votes were counted, Stinson had won a staggering 80% of the absentee ballots. The Republicans smelled a rat and The Philadelphia Inquirer interviewed voters and found 220 irregularities and 24 instances where documents were forged. Mostly minority voters were told to check boxes, vote on behalf of family members, and misled into voting for the wrong man.
In one investigation of the 37th Ward, only 15% of the absentee ballots had been legally cast. …
How could anyone possibly believe that there’s anything rotten in Philly? Multiple trials, indictments, and judicial rulings, decade after decade, don’t prove a damn thing. …
There’s a third man in the photo next to Beloff, who had been convicted of voter fraud, and Ozzie Myers, who would go on to be indicted for election fraud, and that man is Bob Brady.
Bob Brady is the Chairman of the Philadelphia Democratic Party.
Brady is famous for two things, winning every election with over 80% of the vote, and stealing the Pope’s cup. …
After spending 20 years as a House Democrat, including as a ranking member of the Committee on House Administration and on the Subcommittee on Elections, he stepped down after an FBI investigation into a $90,000 payment made by his campaign to get his opponent to drop out by disguising it as a payment for a poll.
Two of Brady’s aides were sent to jail in the case, but neither of the politicians were. After getting out of prison, Ken Smukler, one of those aides, was back working together with Brady and other Democrat leaders on the fight to help Biden win Pennsylvania.
The Biden campaign denied knowing him.
Imagine letting these guys anywhere near vote counting.
