News Anchor Gets Civics Lesson
Fox News host, Sean Hannity got a lesson in civics after tweeting his completed ballot. Hannity says that he was unaware the practice is illegal in a number of states.
The host says that he did not think anything of photographing and posting his completed ballot to Twitter. When Hannity found out he did the only thing he could do, deleted the picture and apologized.
There were many, including celebrates, posting pictures of completed ballots on social media that it was a trend on Election Day.
The majority of the posts have since been deleted. Sean Hannity used his show to address his error and explain to viewers that he did not know it was wrong at the time.
Hannity later discussed the incident on his radio show.
“I learned a big civics lesson today,” he said. “… I took a picture of my vote and I tweeted it out and then I heard it’s not allowed. So I had to — I deleted it — whoops! I didn’t know, I really didn’t, honestly.”
The laws vary from some states prohibiting any kind of photographs or videotaping inside the policing place to some restricting it to those that would disrupt the voting process.
