WASHINGTON (AP) - With just over a month to go before Americans head en masse to the polls in an extraordinarily contentious election, Facebook is expanding restrictions on political advertising, including new bans on messages claiming widespread voter fraud.
New prohibitions laid out in a blog post this week come days after President Donald Trump raised the prospect of mass fraud in the vote-by-mail process during a debate with Democratic rival Joe Biden.
Banned ads “would include calling a method of voting inherently fraudulent or corrupt."
