“Skinny” Joey Merlino accused of rigging 2020 election in ludicrous conspiracy
Over last weekend, an article published by The Buffalo Chronicle detailed, from an anonymous source, how Merlino faked over 300,000 ballots in favor of Presidential Candidate Joe Biden for the 2020 presidential election. The article also reported that Merlino was paid $10 per ballot, making it a cool three million dollar job for just three days of work.
According to other news sites, The Buffalo Chronicle has been known for reporting bogus conspiracies and ultimately false stories.
The Merlino article went even further and stated that the Philly mafia boss was willing to “flip” to expose Pennsylvania election fraud. Apparently Merlino himself faked ballots and delivered them in “non-descript cardboard boxes” overnight to Philadelphia.
As the article had it, Merlino was willing to “snitch” in exchange for a presidential pardon from President Trump for crimes committed while rigging the election. His attorney, John Meringolo, told the New York Daily News, “My client categorically denies all the allegations and Joey would rather die than ever be a snitch.” Prominent figures like Rudy Giuliani have also denied these claims.
Merlino, 58, has been in South Florida on supervised release after taking a plea deal in a 2018 racketeering case. He has been using certain associates as buffers to continue oversight of the crime family.
“These people are crazy!”, Merlino reportedly said to Meringolo after reading The Buffalo Chronicle article.
