The United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday stayed the surrender date for Douglass Mackey, a pro-Trump memester convicted of election interference, pending the appeal of his conviction.

Mackey was convicted in March of this year for posting a meme in 2016 that encouraged supporters for then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to cast their vote by text. The offending image included a picture of a woman with a pro-Clinton sign and bore the message "Avoid the Line. Vote from Home. Text 'Hillary' to 59925[.] Vote for Hillary and be a part of history."

He was sentenced to seven months in prison in October, though Monday's ruling means he will remain free throughout the appeals process.:snip:

Insanity in what happens in todays world is no longer a novelty. It's come down to categorizing the different levels of insanity. Sigh.
