The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is alleging that Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan committed election bribery by offering "subs for votes" in Waukesha on Tuesday.

Party Chairman Mike Tate said at press conference that Democrats will file a complaint with the Government Accountability Board, the state agency that oversees elections in Wisconsin.

Video captured by Patch shows Romney and Ryan handing out the sub sandwiches. Additionally, a video edited by the state Democratic Party shows Romney leading a rally and telling supporters to go vote, and "If they want another sandwich, there are more back there."
