A court just sentenced a man to 7 months in prison for an election "prank" on social media. Does the punishment fit the crime?
ยท Oct 18, 2023 ยท NottheBee.com

Trump supporter Doug Mackey was just given a seven-month sentence for posting an image in 2016 that he calls a "meme" but that the DOJ called an attempt at "election interference."

Here are some of Mackey's posts that landed him in prison:

Mackey was convicted way back in March and the court has just now, 7 months later, sentenced him to 7 months for "election interference."

The DOJ and the court provided NO evidence that anyone fell for these pranks. So if Mackey was attempting to swing the election, it looks like he did a bad job.

Mackey's defense is that he was only trying to create a viral meme, not to keep anyone from voting.

(Also, if it was an attempt at a meme it wasn't particularly funny or good).

Now Mackey is heading off to spend 7 months in jail thanks to a jury of his "peers" in New York City.

But I'm sure Trump will get a fair trial in NYC.

What do y'all think? Is this legit election interference worthy of prison time? Or is the Biden administration not able to take a joke?
