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.

I know some people who have friends from Mass. who worked for him...said he is one of the meanest, nastiest people you’d ever wanna meet.
He ran one of the most dishonorable, underhanded and unprofessional campaigns in primary history..and people are saying that we MUST vote for him cuz he’s better than Hussein.
That may be true but this Conservative will not be casting a ballot for the Rat...not now, not ever.
“Do you really believe that a leopard can change its spots?”
Mitt Romney, CEO of Damon Corp. and the Biggest Medicare Fraud in Massachusetts ever!
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.
Romney would be Obama’s dream Republican contender. This short video will give you a flavor of how a debate between them might play out.
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 Im talking about, heres 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 Streets 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. Hes 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 dont 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.
“Oh, my, but you’ve pushed the wrong button, Elsiejay dear!”
Good!! I have no aversion to pushing buttons; might learn something, such as, for instance, the name of an suggested acceptable alternate. Personally, I am deeply grieved that Gov. Palin is not a candidate, and am inclined to write her name on my ballot. A foolish gesture, I know, but what else??
Why is no real conservative wanting to be elected President of the U.S.A.?
You’re right. Might a “Reagan-esque” convention speech turn back the Romney tide?
Cousin Subs??? Was he trying to bribe them or poison them?
Either way, it was unpresidential and dumb - the very description of Mitt Willard Rmoney.
I know what you mean about Sarah Palin.
