The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is a swing state that can decide who controls the federal government of the United States and the lives of Americans.

Voter fraud isn't an urban myth, regardless of what some scream. I have always wondered why some people would make excuses for the theft of their civil rights and mine by crooked politicians.

Today, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, William M. McSwain, announced the guilty plea by a longtime Judge of Elections in South Philidelphia to charges of election fraud. Domenick J. DeMuro pled guilty to "conspiring to deprive Philadelphia voters of their civil rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific Democratic candidates" and he was doing it for years. He admitted he was part of this conspiracy in elections held in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Tough to say voter fraud doesn't exist when a long-serving Judge of Elections admits it and explains how the process to steal elections was done by a cabal of local, state, and federal Democrat candidates working in concert with a Democrat political consultant.

The facts in the case show the Democrat candidates paid the consultant fees which were then used to fund the crimes. "The consultant would then take portions of these funds and make payments to Election Board Officials, including DeMuro, in return for DeMuro and other Election Board officials tampering with the election results," it was explained.

This criminal conspiracy was worth the money the local, state, and federal candidates paid. According to the Justice Department, "DeMuro’s 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 votes in the Division; in 2016, his fraud accounted for over 17% of the votes."

Who were the Democrat candidates who paid for the election fraud in federal elections? Those were candidates for either Congress or the presidency. Are there indictments coming for past federal candidates who are currently voting in the United States House and/or Senate? How did this operation impact the 2016 race between Bernie Sanders and Sec. of State Hillary Clinton?

Don't believe them when they say voter fraud doesn't exist, because one of the guys who knows the truth just pled guilty to it.
