Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman hit with 15 new felony charges

Of course. These clowns even represented themselves. How fitting.

Weeks after Michigan prosectors hit the pair of right-wing provocateurs with charges in an alleged voter-intimidation robocall scheme, Jacob Wohl, 22, and Jack Burkman, 58, have been indicted by an Ohio grand jury on separate felony counts.

Local prosecutors charged Wohl and Burkman each with eight counts of felony telecommunications fraud and seven counts of felony bribery for allegedly sowing false fears about voting by mail in targeted minority communities in Ohio, plus multiple other states. Warrants were issued for the pair's arrest, who face up to 18 years and six months in prison if convicted.

...

The duo, representing themselves, testified one day earlier before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) in a civil lawsuit brought on behalf of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation in relation to the same alleged scheme. The suit alleges that Wohl and Burkman violated the Ku Klux Klan Act with the calls. (Wohl and Burkman are both Jewish.)

Recordings featuring a woman's voice falsely told recipients that mail-in ballots could be used to "collect outstanding debt," "track down old warrants" and "track people for mandatory vaccines." The recording cited in the lawsuit said the calls were made on behalf of Project 1599, Burkman's group.


Bye, asswipes. You thought you were untouchable, but you got caught red-handed.

2. How many times do they have to be indicted before they finally serve time?

I want to see them behind bars.

5. They probably envisioned themselves as stars in a media circus

hence the decision to go raw-dog into court (without lawyers). Wonder if they're regretting that decision yet.

6. The other inmates will love Wohl's effeminate features.

Burkman? Maybe some Alabama fan with fantasies of a younger version of Nick Saban.

7. Hope they aren't convicted and sentenced until after

Impotus is marched out of the White House and President Biden takes over.

8. "The duo, representing themselves..."

That says a lot right there. If found guilty, and their record should be considered, the judge should tack on another few years for being idiots too. Felony charges for the Dumbnamic Duo and they believe they're capable of defending themselves? Good luck with that. Not.

10. There is a small part of me that is worried this could lead to a SCOTUS ruling striking down

just about every voter intimidation law in existence on free expression grounds, a sort of Citizens United on steroids to let corporations and superpacs and political hucksters buy elections by bullying voters into submission. These right wing activists would love the opportunity to do that.

Hopefully Biden will reform the courts before this case reaches any stage where appeals come into play.
