Ohio May Also Charge Jacob Wohl And Jack Burkman

The Columbus Dispatch reports:

Ohio authorities are considering whether charges are warranted against a pair of conservative extremists already accused of voter intimidation targeting minorities in Michigan. A total of 3,449 robocalls were answered on Ohioans’ phones from the duo: Jack Burkman, 54, of Arlington, Virginia, and Jacob Wohl, 22, of Los Angeles, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said Tuesday.

After receiving a complaint about the automated calls from Cleveland Democratic Congresswoman Marcia Fudge and others, Yost investigated and referred the matter to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley for possible criminal charges. The duo were charged Oct. 1 by the Michigan attorney general with four crimes: Voter intimidation; conspiracy to intimidate voters; and counts of using a computer in both schemes.
