GOP front-runner Donald Trump may have violated Wisconsin election law on Tuesday when he visited voters who were waiting to cast ballots, the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel reports.
A supporter caught Trump on cell phone video outside Waukesha Fire Station #5, which is a polling place, just before noon local time, the paper reports. In the video, Trump can be seen mingling with people and talking to a woman who says she’s a volunteer for his campaign.
According to the Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin law prohibits election activities, which include holding signs or leafleting, within 100 feet from a polling place.
The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board told the paper they were looking into the incident and ensuring the Trump campaign is aware of the law.
The supporter apparently deleted the tweet, but not before the video was captured by the paper and posted online.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
