Probe Into Romney Sub Sandwich Bribe Allegations Nearly Done

District attorney says interviews should wrap up this week over whether GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan broke the law by handing out subs on Election Day in Waukesha.

The Waukesha County District Attorney’s office is continuing to look into the allegations that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was passing out sub sandwiches in exchange for votes on April 3.

District Attorney Brad Schimel told Patch in an email Monday morning investigators still “have a few more interviews that we hope to accomplish this week" before determining whether to file any charges in the matter.

Romney was joined by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, on Election Day at Cousins Subs in Waukesha, where they were passing out the free sandwiches. The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is accusing the two Republicans of election bribery as a result.
