In a display of shocking double standards and complete ignorance of the principle of free speech, a pro-Donald Trump Twitter user has been arrested for tweeting a message to Hillary Clinton voters in 2016 that they could vote by text message.
The arrest was made by federal authorities, who continue to prove that they are nothing more than a subservient arm of the Democratic party, and no longer uphold the rights of the U.S. Constitution.
The pro-Trump meme maker and Twitter user was indicted Jan. 27 by federal authorities for using the social media platform to “spread election disinformation.” “Ricky Vaughn,” also known as Douglass Mackey, 31, was arrested in West Palm Beach on one charge of conspiracy against rights and faces up to 10 years in prison.
According to the unsealed indictment, Mackey conspired with others on Twitter to encourage black people to cast their votes via text message. The Eastern District of New York said in its indictment that shortly before the 2016 vote, Mackey tweeted an image of a black woman in front of an “African Americans for President Hillary” sign.
On the picture was the message: “Avoid the Line. Vote from Home. Text ‘Hillary’ to 59925. Vote for Hillary and be a part of history”
According to the complaint, more than 4,900 people fell for it and “cast their vote via text message.”
