Subgate! Democrats File Complaint Against Romney & Ryan Over Free Sub Sandwiches

Wisconsin Democrats File Complaint Against Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan Over Free Sub Sandwiches

Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan spent about 20 minutes behind the counter at Cousins Subs, a local chain. Romney handed out turkey sandwiches, while Ryan—who has campaigned alongside the former Massachusetts governor at virtually every stop in recent days—handed out ham and cheese.

“Good to see you! Glad to see you!” Romney said, as he shook hands and posed for pictures.

and now the Democratic Party of Wisconsin is alleging that Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan committed election bribery by offering “subs for votes” in Waukesha on Tuesday.

Party Chairman Mike Tate said at press conference that Democrats will file a complaint with the Government Accountability Board, the state agency that oversees elections in Wisconsin.

Video captured by Patch shows Romney and Ryan handing out the sub sandwiches. Additionally, a video edited by the state Democratic Party shows Romney leading a rally and telling supporters to go vote, and

“If they want another sandwich, there are more back there.”
