The Department of Justice has recently received information indicating that your client, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), might be providing or planning to provide free merchandise to voters at polling places. However, the available information also indicates that, if this practice is actually planned or occurring, it is open and notorious. Accordingly, this letter is to advise you that WWE might be operating in ignorance of applicable federal criminal law, and to notify you of that law. Specifically, Section 1973i (c) of Titale 42 of the United States Code makes it a federal offense to pay or offer to pay an individual a thing of value for voting. Violations of Section 1973i (c) is punishable by imprisonment up to five years and a fine not to exceed $250,000. Please note the Department's understanding that this statute prohibits a person from providing a thing of value--such as clothing--in return for an individual's participation in the voting process. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Sincerely, Richard C. Pilger Director Election Crimes Branch
