“Douglass Mackey, a once well-known creator of memes on Twitter, has been sentenced to seven months in prison…
Mackey, who operated under the alias Ricky Vaughn, had made and shared memes critical of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential race. His memes humorously suggested that Clinton supporters cast their ballots through text messages – a patently invalid method of voting.
Although such an improper method was clearly ineffective, Mackey was still convicted over the notion of election interference.
Quite interestingly, many have noted, other internet users who shared similar content regarding the option of text voting for Donald Trump were neither charged nor convicted.”
Kristina Wong who created videos encouraging Trump supporters to vote through text message to “skip poll lines.” has faced no charges.
