Marilyn Mosby Deletes Possibly Illegal Tweet of Daughter Filling Out Ballot


Marilyn Mosby deletes possibly illegal tweet of daughter filling out ballot

Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby has deleted a tweet of a picture that appeared to show her daughter filling out her mother’s ballot as a vote for Hillary Clinton, possibly violating a Maryland law against the use of electronic devices in the voting booth.

The controversial attorney, who brought the unsuccessful prosecutions against five Baltimore police officers over the death of Freddie Gray, initially tweeted that she had voted and encouraged others to do the same — accompanied by the picture inside the voting booth.

However, after a number of users commented that taking a picture of a ballot in Maryland is illegal under state law, Mosby swiftly deleted the tweet.
