MAGA conspiracy theorists Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl pleaded guilty on Monday to a fifth-degree felony charge for misinformation robocalls they made in Cleveland during the run-up to the 2020 election that targeted minority voters. Prosecutors dropped 14 charges.

Via Cleveland.com:

Jacob Wohl, 24, of Irvine, California, and Jack Burkman, 56, of Arlington, Virginia, face a maximum of a year in prison after they pleaded guilty to a fifth-degree felony charge of telecommunications fraud.

Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor James Gutierrez said the men also agreed to pay the maximum fine of $2,500 as part of the plea deal. Prosecutors dismissed 14 counts of telecommunications and bribery as part of the deal.

Wohl and Burkman cooked up schemes, such as falsely accusing former presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg of sexually assaulting another man.

The MAGA-dummies also accused Elizabeth Warren of having a consensual, months-long relationship with a 24-year-old bodybuilding Marine. He claimed the then-Democratic presidential candidate asked him to participate in BDSM sexy time and told him that she was in an open relationship with her husband. He also said that Warren told him, "You wouldn't believe how many studs like you show up to the Congressional retreats."

The two also tried to discredit Special Counsel Robert Mueller by accusing him of sexual misconduct. Hey, they should have thrown Warren's name in that scheme, too. Why not?

Do you remember when those clowns held a press conference, and Burkman's zipper was down?

Just a maximum of a year in jail? At least they still face similar charges in Michigan. They did all of that to run interference for Donald J. Trump, and each one of those things is illegal.
