Douglass Mackey, otherwise known as Ricky Vaughn was arrested for using his platform to convince voters to cast their vote via phone. 4,900 separate phone numbers attempted to vote through text in 2016.
The state claims that Mackey was undermining citizens voting rights. while this act is undoubtedly wrong, It’s not quite taking anyones voting rights away.
Those 4,900 people all maintained their right to vote in person. Mackey never relieved them of that right. He mislead those people so that they would not exercise their right. Which is, again morally wrong.
However the state appears to be slightly misrepresenting his actions. He did not hold voters hostage on election day and relinquish their rights.
