Was a Biden Staffer Arrested for Voter Fraud?

A viral social media post claims to show a photo of a Biden staffer under arrest for voter fraud: 

This is a false claim and comes at a moment when President Trump’s campaign has filed lawsuits, alleging voter fraud in certain states

The man in the picture in this widely shared post, however, is not Dallas Jones, Biden’s Texas political director. It’s a photo of  Cuba Gooding Jr., who, as the Associated Press reported, was arrested in June 2019 after a woman accused him of groping her at a bar.

While the claims about Jones are false–he confirmed that he has not been arrested in an interview with the New York Times–the misunderstanding goes beyond a case of a misidentified photo.

  • The only way I find out what kind of silliness is circulating among "the social medias", as Elizabeth Cook likes to say, is when I see these fact-checker items here.
