Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman must’ve thought they were the right-wing equivalents to the Jerky Boys or something, but it’s definitely blowing up in their faces now. The Federal Communications Commission has proposed a record-shattering $5 million fine against the two on August 24th after they admitted in court to a massive robocalling scheme which expressed some interesting views about Mail-In voting which aren’t exactly rooted in fact. Burkman and Wohl allegedly placed over 85,000 calls. The FCC was clearly not amused.
Furthermore, they put their names straight in the message. So if they thought they were committing a crime here, then they might be a couple of the most inept criminals ever.
According to the New York State Attorney General, the message read,
“Hi, this is Tamika Taylor from Project 1599, the civil rights organization founded by Jack Burman and Jacob Wohl. 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 safe and beware of vote by mail.”
Being Made Example Of By Michigan, New York, And Biden’s FCC
And get this: as reported by CNN, “the FCC said, officials interviewed consumers and also reviewed subpoenaed call records and recordings provided by two dialing service providers that Wohl and Burkman had hired to conduct the robocalling campaign. The 1,141 calls had been placed on Aug. 26 and Sept. 14, 2020, identified Wohl and Burkman by name and used Burkman’s phone number for the caller ID, the FCC added.” So again… WORST. CRIMINALS. EVER.
The New York AG Letitica James’ office wrote,
“The Wohl and Burkman robocall campaign, which reached approximately 5,500 New Yorkers, sought to undermine and interfere with the then-ongoing efforts by the state of New York to fairly and safely administer its elections during the COVID-19 crisis and protect its citizens from voter intimidation and harassment. Attorney General James’ action today in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York seeks to cease further voter intimidation by Wohl, Burkman, and their associates.”
The Michigan AG Dana Nessel filed charges against Wohl and Burkman for:
- One count of election law – intimidating voters, a five-year felony;
- One count of conspiracy to commit an election law violation, a five-year felony;
- One count of using a computer to commit the crime of election law – intimidating voters, a seven-year felony; and
- Using a computer to commit the crime of conspiracy, a seven-year felony.
“Any effort to interfere with, intimidate or intentionally mislead Michigan voters will be met with swift and severe consequences,” Nessel said. “This effort specifically targeted minority voters in an attempt to deter them from voting in the November election. We’re all well aware of the frustrations caused by the millions of nuisance robocalls flooding our cell phones and landlines each day, but this particular message poses grave consequences for our democracy and the principles upon which it was built. Michigan voters are entitled to a full, free, and fair election in November and my office will not hesitate to pursue those who jeopardize that.”
The Democrat co-opted Judicial systems in Michigan and New York have branded what could be interpreted as a crank-call writ large as “voter suppression” and a violation of US robocalling laws. Both states seem to be ‘making an example’ of the men under the guise that they were “interfering” in the election by distributing their ‘theories’ about the Mail-In vote. The mainstream media insists on referring to these two as “Right Wing Operatives”, they may have some right-leaning opinions but no one elected them and certainly, no self-respecting conservatives would disagree that they made the robocalls, after all, they confessed in open court. However, the punishments being handed down by vengeful leftist courts and the Biden-Harris regime are definitely a bit over the top verging on truly tyrannical.
There was enough wrong with the 2020 Mail-In vote that you didn’t need to make anything up to make it scary anyway.
