Skip to comments.Democrats accuse Romney of sandwich bribery

The going rate for a vote in Wisconsin, if you believe the states Democratic Party, is as low as a submarine sandwich. After Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul D. Ryan joined together to serve up free sandwiches at Cousins Subs in Waukesha, the Democratic Party sent out a press release contending that by serving up the free food, the campaign had violated Wisconsin law.

It's too bad that Paul Ryan was foolish enough to join Romney in this bit of stupidity.
If there’s someone who knows how cheaply votes may be purchased it’s a Democrat politician.
A sub sandwich probably cost about the same as a pack of cigarettes, which is what they hand out in exchange for registration in Philly.
That said, I hope it sinks him so we can get a candidate I am able to at least hold my nose and support. As bad as McCain was, at least he is a war hero.
For decades, the Donks have been handing out packs of Marlboros in exchange for a vote.
Wisconsin Democrats pick up their “voters” at homeless shelters, give them a ride to the polls and give them a pack of cigarettes.
By the sound of the law and what they were up to, the Dems are right in this one.
I remember they caught a lady from Park Avenue in New York handing out Marlboro's to the homeless to vote Democrats.
AS BAD AS ROMNEY IS, THE CONSENQUES OF ANOTHER OBAMA TERM IS VASTLY GREATER.
Republican walk-around money and the dims are furious (and getting desperate).
For decades, the Donks have been handing out packs of Marlboros in exchange for a vote.Trust me, none of that matters. What will matter is that Romney broke WI campaign laws. The TV stations are all liberal, the major state newspaper, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinal, is the official mouthpiece of the Democrat party.
Romney hands out a few sandwiches and it's front page news.
If that’s vote buying, what are union contracts?
Short-term, yes, long-term, I disagree. This will be a debate we will be having on here for the next 7 months.
Amen. I hate double standards.
Clearly the dems are right on this one. After all, they don’t have to pay ANYTHING for all the dead votes they get. Likewise, all the double, triple and quadruple votes don’t cost a penny. It’s easy to see who has the superior moral position on this issue.
Are you a reporter for the Journal/Sentinel? laugh
It isn’t free if you have to pay for it with a vote!
America is on the verge of Economic collapse, the Deficit has increased by about 8 Trillion in just 4 short years, Inflation is running away and the Middle East is on the verge of a Nuclear Holocaust.
The Republican Primary is in utter shambles, infighting caused by the malcontented base has reached the point of borderline psychotic, determined to self destruct. And very few seem to give a damn that because of all this chaos, the American voters are starting to favor the Democrats again. Some among the base, even prefer that Obama win because one of their own is viewed to be even worse than Obama or Satan himself.
Considering the consequences, why It is more important for your side to help the Democrats make an epic case out of a free sandwich, in hopes of destroying what little credibility our side has left? The Democrats certainly don't have to lift a finger to destroy our candidates, our side is gladly doing that all on their own.
As opposed to giving out free cigarettes, money and free rides to vote democrat?
