Oops! Trump’s supporter accidentally catches him violating Wisconsin election law
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.
