Former Rep. Ozzie Myers (D) was incredible in the worst possible way. Here’s a highlight from his storied career.
“Police received a call that a fight in the lounge was in progress at 1 a.m. Tuesday.
Police arrived at the hotel to find one of Myers’ companions, whom they identified as John L. Sullivan, “running around the lobby without his trousers or underwear, yelling, ‘Beat me, Beat me.”
Myers was in a party with at least four other men and two women.
“The report shows the party began making a lot of noise and creating a disturbance, and when they were asked to be quiet, the man later identified as Mr. Myers responded, “I’m a congressman, we don’t have to be quiet.”
Myers’ group got into the elevator. The security guard told police that he was walking by the elevator when Sullivan, Myers, an unknown female, and another man began hitting him in the face, forcing him to the floor of the elevator.
The cashier “subsequently was kicked by men she identified as Sullivan and Myers, when she tried to come to the aid of the guard.”
We’re talking about a 19-year-old woman by the way.
When informed of two separate warrants for his arrest, Myers blithely replied, “I saw a little pushin’ and shovin’, but I didn’t see no fight.’ Aside from some pro forma complaining about “media sensationalism,’
That didn’t get Myers kicked out. This did.
Rep. Michael Myers, D-Pa., was expelled from the House Thursday on a 376-30 vote, becoming the first member thrown out since the Civil War. He said he would ask a federal court to reinstate him.
Myers, who did not cast a vote during the proceedings, was convicted in August of taking a bribe from FBI undercover agents who convinced him they represented an Arab sheik seeking congressional favors.
He is up for re-election Nov. 4, and if he wins, the House would be forced to decide whether to expel him a second time.
That was 1980. But good news. The Pennsylvania union thug is back.
Michael “Ozzie” Myers was indicted earlier this week of “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, and obstruction of justice,” according to a Justice Department statement.
But, don’t worry, according to the Democrats, voter fraud doesn’t exist.
