Waukesha Co. DA investigates alleged Mitt Romney subs-for-votes
http://www.wxow.com/story/17336389/waukesha-county-da-investigates-alleged-subs-for-votes ^ | April 5, 2012 | wxow

Posted on 04/14/2012 10:00:56 PM PDT by Marguerite

A spokesperson for Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel told 27 News Schimel has launched an investigation into allegations that free sandwiches given out on election day by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney violated Wisconsin law.

Waukesha County investigator detective David Witkowski told 27 News the criminal probe began Wednesday with interviews and requests for records.

On Tuesday, April 3, Romney and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan greeted people at a Cousins Subs restaurant on Pearl Street. News video shows Romney encouraging people to vote and inviting them to pick up free sandwiches.

"A reasonable person would understand that Romney's statement was an offer of a sandwich for individuals who were going to vote in the Republican primary, who had already voted in the Republican primary, and the sandwiches had been provided not by Cousins Subs," wrote Melissa Baldauff of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin in a complaint field with the state Government Accountability Board.

Wisconsin law bars people from offering anything valued at more than $1 as an inducement to vote.

Mitt Romney: You guys ready for some subs? Alright? Free subs! .... Turkey here, ham and cheese (indiscernible) and Italian. Turkey!

Paul Ryan: Turkey, ham, or Italian? Italian. How about you?

MR: Nice to meet you, thanks for coming by. Thanks for voting, oh, you haven't voted yet. (Looks at other lady) You got to get her to vote now, alright.

Mitt Romney: I want to thank you for voting. Get your friends to go vote. Get some friends to go with you, that's how you can legally vote multiple times. Alright, so bring your friends to the polling place, get out the vote, and if you want another sandwich there are more back there. Thanks you guys, great to be with you!

Mitt bribing people with sandwiches to go vote for him. Incredible. HOW could Ryan join him in a such cheap scam? For shame!

If the invitation was general, no inducements were made in exchange for the the sandwiches and no electioneering was going on, it is NOT reasonable to conclude the sandwiches were being exchanged for Republican votes. Further, plaintiff has not established the value of the sandwiches.

Well . . .

Just.. damn.

I have just supported Willard Mitt Romney.

BUT THAT IS ALL HE GETS!

(And it is sure less than a vote)

While wrapping up his Wisconsin tour, the Romney Campaign bought $500 worth of Cousin’s subs to encourage the crowd to hit the polls and vote for Romney. There are a few things that you can’t do on election day in Wisconsin, and Rep. Paul Ryan who was arm-in-arm with with Romney throughout the ordeal neglected to tell the presidential candidate that the distribution of goods on election day is illegal.

Buying votes is buying votes. It doesn't matter if he buys them with sandwiches or cash, as he already did elsewhere. If the state laws forbid it and Romney DID it then he broke the law. I hope he'll pay for that much more than $500. What I cannot understand is how the hell could Paul Ryan join Mitt in that outrageous scam?

Is that really the law in Wisconsin? In the states I am familiar with the giveaway has to be linked with electioneering for a particular candidate or party in proximity to the polls, or the specific agreement to exchange the thing for a vote.

It will be funny to watch if this multimillion dollar smear machine gets rocked over some clammy cold cuts and french bread.

Cold-Cut Case? Wisconsin Democrats Accuse Romney of ‘Subs for Votes’

PEWAUKEE, Wis. – When GOP front-runner Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., gathered at a sandwich shop in Waukesha today to drum up support for Romney in the Badger State primary, they might have been engaging in “subs-for-votes” election bribery, according to the state’s Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin issued a complaint of bribery hours after the event, holding a news conference in downtown Milwaukee to air its grievances.

“It is a clear violation of Wisconsin election law, cut and dry,” the Democrat Party’s representative in Wisconsin told ABC News.

The group is filing its complaint with the state Government Accountability Board, which oversees the elections and will handle the complaint going forward.

So if you give nursing home residents a free ride to the poll, you would be breaking the law? The ride is something of value.

I really have to laugh thinking about Republicans giving free sandwiches is buying a vote. My bigoted view of Democrats busing in impoverished illegals and giving them free food is comparable to this story? The lily white blond middle-class woman featured in the video just does not fit the image I have of the voter fraud template of Democrats buying votes, busing left-wing students across state lines, and raising the dead.

Oh the hysteria, the hysteria.

It is illegal to distribute anything worth more than $1 “in order to induce any elector to go to or refrain from going to the polls,” according to the Wisconsin state statute. The subs Romney and Ryan were handing out today, if bought individually from the store, cost more than $1. Sandwiches at Cousins range in price from $4.49 to $5.59.

In California, we used to get a free cup of coffee at Sambo's, or any of several other restaurants, if we showed the waitress our ballot stub, indicating that we had voted.

Around the mid to late 70s, even that was outlawed completely.

Since we moved out of the state in 1984, can't say if it's still that way or not...but it is here in SD.

And yet the Dims will juice up and bus winos to voting polls. Gives me mixed feelings that a "Repub" would do it during the primaries, but also think we should match Dim dirty tricks step-for-step in Nov. and insist they get the same scrutiny as we do. Else, we'll lose for sure, no matter who we prop up on stage.

From all the anti-Romney sentiments expressed on FR that many of us are going to either (1) vote for Obama, or (2) not vote at all.
Romney has a lot of negatives, but I doubt that he would rule by executive order with a stated intent of transforming America into a socialist dictatorship.

Hell, he and his sweet wife are up to their eyeballs in the blood of the innocent, You know, the most defenseless of God’s creatures! !

Shhh! Don’t tell anyone that their legacy here in the people’s republic is of death and destruction!

SHHHH! don’t tell anyone! They may think you are talking about Obama. shhhhh!.......

Romney won’t “rule” at all.

If nominated, he will lose to Obama. Obama is licking his chops in glee, he will run rings around Mitt. Axelrod has already prepared a five-foot thick file on Romney.

After all, Mitt had already lost to the guy who lost to Obama in 2008.

Oh, my, but you've pushed the wrong button, Elsiejay dear!

Exit polls in Ohio indicated that Romney is getting moderates and dissatisfied Democrats, liberals who will not vote for a do-over by BHO2.

I suspect that is why the GOPe have been promoting Romney. As he was a liberal governing Massachusetts, he can attract liberal leaning independents and liberal Democrats away from BHO2. The GOPe despise Conservatives and the Tea Party.

Romney and Wall Street are Globalists who care not a wit for conservative values. First and foremost, they see themselves as world citizens, responsible for maintaining peace and security world-wide through international commerce. And the U.S.Constitution? Just an obstacle in their path.

That international commerce isn't a reality without an international polite force, our military. Our military is paid for by tax revenue and staffed by the sons and daughters of people who no longer have jobs, as those have primarily been moved offshore by the above mentioned “world citizens”.

For those who do not know what I’m talking about, here’s a quick primer.

This election in 2012 is all about money, power, and who will eventually wield both here at home and internationally.

Gov.Mitt Romney, who is a self-professed progressive (fascist) is the candidate for the elitist Republicans who are, in essence, supporters of Globalism.

Wall Street’s business model is international in scope and must have security overseas in order for commerce to thrive. In an attempt to dominate international commerce AND the monetary structure, the U.S.A. must project a global military presence. This is neither conservative nor liberal in orientation and both Democrats and Republicans have done this over the decades.

Obama was elected and everything changed. He’s a champion for Global Social Justice (communism) which means redistributing wealth.

Obviously this outrages the GOPe who are wealthy and have seen their power severely erode.

The only thing that matters to Republican Globalists is getting back in control of Washington, D.C., and making money for themselves. They don’t give a damn about the rights of individuals. The common man or woman on the street is just a “unit” to be taxed or obliterated, it matters not to them.

The last thing they want is for conservatives with Bibles and guns asserting their God-given rights and demanding that Washington, D.C., changes how it does business.

Newt Gingrich has promised to change how Washington, D.C., does business.

The U.S. is $16 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT. The five major banks in this nation are holding European debt instruments [mostly bonds] valued at $250 TRILLION DOLLARS. When, not if, those debt instruments default, those five U.S. banks will collapse, and you can kiss the money in your bank account goodbye.

Does Romney have a plan on how to get us out of debt? I haven't heard him articulate anything, but Newt Gingrich does, and it involves this nation becoming energy independent.

Speaker Gingrich laid it all out in a speech to Republicans in San Francisco, February 26, 2012.

Note: Mitt Romney is a fascist (self-professed progressive) in the classical sense; he is a socialist who sees government as God, and business as an extension of government policy. He WOULD govern as a socialist dictator - it is in his personality to do so.

So, our choice IF Romney isn't bumped out by the Conservatives before November would be between a Marxist (Obama) and a Fascist (Romney).

For me neither is acceptable.
