WisDems File Complaint with GAB Over "Subs-for-Votes" Election Bribery by Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan

Apr 02, 2012

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin today filed a complaint with the Government Accountability Board alleging election bribery that took place at a restaurant in Waukesha where GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan were handing out sandwiches in exchange for votes in today’s state primary.

Caught on tape, Romney and Ryan, who have been joined at the hip since Romney came to Wisconsin, are seen handing out the sandwiches in exchange for votes in a video here.

In the bribery video, Romney clearly exclaims, “So bring your friends to the polls, get out and vote and if you want another sandwich, there are more back there,” gesturing to where he and Ryan were handing out the bribes of varying meats, dressings and bread choices the voters could choose from.
