Precocious Republican grifter Jacob Wohl and his partner Jack Burkman have spent the past two years routinely spreading lies, scams, and smears too numerous to all link to here. And along the way, people have wondered when these two, who have routinely spread baseless defamation claims against just about everyone, would get their comeuppance.
Well, last week, the duo was charged with an array of felonies for their voter suppression robocall in Michigan, and today they were virtually arraigned.
Here are some images from that arraignment. Wohl wore a red face mask that covered his face, while Burkman kept his American flag mask around his chin.
Eventually Burkman placed his mask over his face.
The two were given a $100,000 bond, and an updated court date of Oct. 15.
This story is developing and will be updated.
