Former Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Ozzie Myers has been charged with bribing election officials to add votes during primary elections to candidates he favored or who paid him as a campaign consultant, the Justice Department revealed Thursday.
Myers, 77, served two terms in Congress from 1977 to 1990. He is accused of bribing Domenick Demuro, the top election official in South Philadelphia’s 39th Ward during primaries between 2014 and 2016.
Demuro pleaded guilty to election fraud charges in March. His sentencing has been scheduled for September.
