CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A judge on Tuesday ordered Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, two right-wing conspiracy theorists behind robocalls that sought to intimidate Black voters here out of casting mail-in ballots in the 2020 presidential election, to spend 500 hours registering voters in low-income neighborhoods in the Washington, D.C., area.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge John Sutula placed each on two years of probation, fined each $2,500 and ordered them to wear GPS ankle monitors with home confinement beginning at 8 p.m. each day for the first six months of their probation.

Sutula, 71, said that most of the civil rights advances in the United States have occurred in his lifetime. He compared the men's effort to those who used violence to suppress southern Black voters in the 1960s. ... "I think it's a despicable thing that you guys have done," he said.

Wohl, 24, and Burkman, 56, attended the hearing via Zoom along with their attorneys. When given the chance to address their charges in court for the first time since they were charged, each man was brief.

If that includes live public testimony I’m all for it. If it’s all hidden so bullshitters can leak cherry picked snippets for our bullshitters to repeat without context, it’s a jackoff fest.

I know which one I expect.
The J6 TV show was all cherry picked scripted and professionally produced content.

I expect you'll read the full report, when it is released this month.

I expect he'll pretend to have read it, while parroting the most ridiculous talking point points from RWNJ media, until he can no longer sustain the charade.

Like he did with the Mueller Report...

If it had been a court case would you expect the prosecutors to have a list of scripted questions, and had rehearsed how a witness might answer, and thus have followup questions ready?

You would have preferred amateurs to run it?

He would have preferred the J6 Commission never had hearings, because he believes there was no insurrection, it was just a few vistors touring the Capitol! I guess he didn't see any of the videos displaying the violent overthrow of the Capitol Police to gain entry, in order to trash the place, piss and shit on the floors, and damage and steal Government property.

He would have preferred it be run by the Faithful.
He would have preferred for the nincomcoup to have succeeded, and have Trump be President for always and forever.

And they are releasing everything so that certain bullshitters won’t be able to cherry pick and set up a bullshit narrative. Were you taught how to get around that?
They will find dozens that we will have to defend. It never fails; they always lose.
