Donald Trump’s Son Is In Big, Big Trouble
See the tweet that could land him jail time.
This is the LAST thing the Trump family would want to happen on election day.
Donald Trump’s son, Eric, found himself in hot water after posting a seemingly harmless tweet.
It was a photo of his completed ballot, with the oval over his father’s name filled in.
He tweeted: “It is an incredible honour to vote for my father! He will do such a great job for the U.S.A! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.”
Turns out, showing filled-out ballot papers is actually illegal in New York, under an 1890 law. Just last week a federal judge confirmed that this law also applies to social media.
Luckily, Eric quickly deleted the tweet but could potentially be facing jail time as well as a $1000 fine.
There is speculation he is unlikely to be punished.
