Did Romney Bribe Voters With Sandwiches?

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin said Tuesday it has filed a election bribery complaint with state election officials.

Shorewood, WI Patch that the Democratic Party of Wisconsin has filed an election bribery complaint against GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (WI-1), who is emerging as Romney's possible vice presidential candidate and that the Waukesha County District Attorney's Office is investigating. 

The alleged bribery occurred at a campaign rally in the state, the site of a primary victory for Romney.

In a , Romney and Ryan are handing out sub sandwiches to potential supporters. A video edited by the Wisconsin Democratic Party shows Romney leading the rally and telling supporters to go vote, and “If you want another sandwich, there are more back there.”

Pretty silly stuff when you're wasting time arguing over the legality of handing out a sandwich even if it is worth more than a dollar. And why isn't he handing them out here instead? I'm hungry!

Voter fraud is rampant through out the Democratic party machine and they bring up this sandwich thing. Really?

Republicans don't have much to feed the cognitive reasoning side of most voters. May as well feed the digestive side. "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach."
