Bridgeport councilman indicted on federal election fraud charges

Bridgeport Councilman Michael DeFilippo has been indicted by a federal grand jury on multiple election fraud charges.

DeFilippo, 35, a Democrat who represents Bridgeport’s 133rd District and has been a city councilman since 2018, is accused of conspiring to “interfere with and obstruct Bridgeport citizens’ right to vote by falsifying his tenants’ voter registration applications and absentee ballots applications, then stealing tenants’ absentee ballots and forging their signatures in order to fraudulently vote for him,” according to Acting U.S. Attorney Leonard C. Boyle.

DeFilippo pleaded not guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert M. Spector to one count of conspiracy against rights, four counts of identity theft, and 11 counts of fraudulent registration.

The conspiracy offense carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years, and the identity theft and fraudulent registration offenses carry a maximum term of imprisonment of five years on each count.


Another democrat is caught voting many times using absentee ballots, no wonder they love them so much. This is how millions of extra votes for Biden happened duiring the last election.
