NY Attorney General Letitia James Going After Two Notorious Conservative Trolls
New York Attorney General Letitia James is delighting many on the left side of the political spectrum by going after Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl.
Letitia James has been a well-regarded AG since being voted into the position in 2018. Upon her election, she vowed to go after Donald Trump and investigate his business practices to the fullest extent.
And this week, the New York Attorney General has announced that she will be going after Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman. The two are known for stunts like having women accuse Robert Mueller of sexual assault.
During the 2020 election season, Burkman and Wohl made thousands of robocalls urging against voting by mail. The calls were meant to target minorities.
The robocalls stated, “Mail-in voting sounds great, but did you know that if you vote by mail, your personal information will be part of a public database that will be used by police departments to track down old warrants and be used by credit card companies to collect outstanding debts? Don’t be finessed into giving your private information to The Man; stay home safe and beware of vote by mail.”
In announcing the charges, James said, “”In this country, our vote is our voice –– it is one of the most important parts of our democracy. Any attempt to discourage communities from voting is as illegal as it is un-American. Wohl and Burkman used misinformation to try to disenfranchise Black communities ahead of the election, in a clear attempt to sway the election in the favor of their preferred presidential candidate. No voter should ever be subjected to such harassment or intimidation when exercising their fundamental right to vote.”
