Baltimore’s top prosecutor tweets picture of daughter with ballot, then deletes it

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) —Electronic devices are banned in Maryland polling places, but it seems that Baltimore’s top prosecutor couldn’t resist capturing the cuteness of her daughter with her ballot and sharing it with the world.

State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby tweeted a picture of a girl looking over the ballot in what appears to be a voting booth on Tuesday. She wrote “We Voted today #DoYourPartAndDoTheSame #We’reWithHer @Hillary Clinton.” The ballot does not appear to be filled out.

The tweet was deleted minutes later and replaced with a photo of the girl wearing an “I Voted” sticker. Mosby could not be reached for comment.

James Cabezas, chief investigator at the Office of the Maryland State Prosecutor, says the ban is a regulation, but it has no penalty and isn’t a criminal statute.
