New York AG Sues Jacob Wohl for $2.75 Million Over Robocalls

New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Thursday that her office has filed a lawsuit against bumbling right-wing conspiracy theorists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman over robocalls the pair allegedly made to suppress the Black vote ahead of the 2020 presidential election. “Hi, this is Tamika Taylor from Project 1599, the civil rights organization founded by Jack Burman and Jacob Wohl,” the automated recordings told the targeted voters. “Mail-in voting sounds great, but did you know that if you vote by mail, your personal information will be part of a public database that will be used by police departments to track down old warrants and be used by credit card companies to collect outstanding debts? The CDC is even pushing to use records for mail-in voting to track people for mandatory vaccines. Don’t be finessed into giving your private information to the man, stay home safe and beware of vote by mail.”

James says 5,500 New Yorkers were affected; she’s asking for Wohl and Burkman to pay $500 for each violation and forfeit all profits. If successful, they will be on the hook for $2.75 million, in addition to the felony charges they face in other states for the alleged scheme. Wohl and Burkman have a history of failed schemes, including an attempt to pin false sexual assault allegations on now-U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, former special counsel Robert Mueller, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

New York Attorney General Wants to Join Federal Lawsuit Claiming Jacob Wohl's Election Robocalls Violated Ku Klux Klan Act

New York Attorney General Letitia James took legal action against conservative activist Jacob Wohl on Thursday over thousands of robocalls that a federal judge described last year as "electoral terror" for targeting Black voters with false information about mail-in voting during the 2020 election.

If allowed to join, James would draw Wohl's telecom provider into the fray: Message Communications and its owner Robert Mahanian.

"In this country, our vote is our voice -- it is one of the most important parts of our democracy. Any attempt to discourage communities from voting is as illegal as it is un-American," the Democratic attorney general said in a statement. "Wohl and Burkman used misinformation to try to disenfranchise Black communities ahead of the election, in a clear attempt to sway the election in the favor of their preferred presidential candidate."

James claims that Wohl and others involved in the robocalls dodged a series of subpoenas by her office.

7. Frankly, I'm kinda stunned they haven't been charged with felony crimes and sued in civil courts

into complete bankruptcy and serving time.

I just don't understand how the kind of crimes these jerks continue to commit keeps on happening from the same individuals.

Because they are FREE from Justice and accountability.


it's freaking unreal.
