It is clear the Milwaukee County district attorney's office is investigating charges that Wisconsin Right to Life offered rewards for volunteers who signed up sympathetic voters in the recall races. Several people familiar with the investigation said subpoenas were being distributed "like candy." — Daniel BiceHuh.
These are the election bribery allegations, by the way, that an actual Marquette University professor of law attempted to defend against by quoting the State election bribery statute beginning halfway through it, utterly ignoring the pertinent language proscribing offers and promises.
It's comical, but it's also pretty pathetic.
"Are you trying to get me in trouble?" bellowed James Bopp.I should bloody well hope so.
Been telling anyone who'd listen that this thing had legs. I think the DA has to charge it and I think it will end up at the State Supreme Court.
But the Speed Queen BBQ ribs case, which Bice also mentions, isn't going anywhere. As attenuated from the grasp of the bribery statute one might argue WRTL's shenanigans were, the BBQ ribs were even more so.
Sad Media Trackers will be sad.
