Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman are reportedly being hit with four felony charges each, for a scheme in which they are accused of using robocalls to convince voters not to vote by mail. The two have been involved in a long list of schemes, including false accusations against public figures, and quite recently, allegedly faking an FBI raid on Burkman’s home.
The pair were accused of running a voter suppression scam, in which they reportedly used a robocall to misinform voters about mail-in ballots, telling voters that their ballot information will be used by law enforcement to track fugitives, given to credit companies to track down debtors, and even by the CDC to track people for the mythical “mandatory vaccination.”
On Thursday, AP reporter David Eggert shared that Michigan’s Attorney General had announced charges against the two.
Jacob Wohl, 22, and Jack Burkman, 54, each face four felony counts in Detroit, including conspiring to intimidate voters in violation of election law and using a computer to commit crimes, Attorney General Dana Nessel said.

On Parler, the social media network to which Wohl was exiled after he managed to get kicked off most mainstream social sites, rather than address the charges, he deflected with an attack on Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Joe Biden’s son, Beau, declaring both to be in hell.
The full statement from Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel lists the charges.
Jack Burkman, 54, and Jacob Wohl, 22, are each charged with:
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.
She goes on to suggest that if the two don’t present themselves voluntarily in a timely manner, formal extradition is on the table.
The many people who have been watching and waiting to see just which scheme it will be that finally results in consequences for the notorious pair quickly turned to social media to respond to the news.
At last, a crime that loved Jacob Wohl back. https://t.co/rDNf9VY1Cb

I just left a hipster coffee shop. It was packed with liberals cackling at the news of Jacob Wohl facing four felonies in Michigan.

Wohl recently made a public appearance at a vigil for Ruth Bader Ginsburg, where he shouted at mourners and told them the beloved Supreme Court Justice was a terrible person.
