Michigan Attorney General Says Culprits In Robocall Voter Suppression Stunt Face Up To Five Years In Prison

The Daily Beast reports:

Michigan state officials are investigating a voter-suppression robocall allegedly tied to blundering conservative operatives Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman.

The robocall was aimed at scaring Detroit voters away from using mail-in ballots, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson tweeted on Thursday. Benson announced that her office and Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel would investigate the call’s origins and “seek justice” against the people behind it.

The “Project 1599” cited in the robocall is the name of a nebulous political organization run by Wohl and Burkman, a play on the address of the home Burkman owns in Northern Virginia that plays host to bizarre press conferences in Burkman’s driveway. But Wohl and Burkman deny any involvement in the robocalls.
