Facebook Bans Ads That Delegitimize Election Security

The Hill reports:

A Facebook official on Wednesday announced changes to the platform’s ad policy, pledging that the site would remove political ads that baselessly link to certain kinds of allegations of widespread voting fraud, such as false claims about mail-in voting.

The move, which comes as President Trump regularly makes claims without evidence that mail-in votes lead to widespread election fraud, goes into effect immediately according to the company’s director of project management, Rob Leathern.
