Did Sunny Hostin just admit on air to breaking the law by voting for her son?

Sunny Hostin, cohost of The View, set off a flurry of questions after admitting Tuesday on the ABC daytime talk show that she voted absentee ballot for her son.

The liberal harpies on the show were doing their part to disparage the voting process in the midterm elections, setting the stage for questioning the legitimacy of what is widely expected to be a Republican rout, where even in New York there’s a possibility that GOP challenger Lee Zeldin will defeat Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul.

At one point, co-host Whoopie Goldberg reprimanded Hostin for being on her smartphone, telling her colleague, “Put that phone down, girl! God bless you.”

“It’s my son,” Hostin replied. “Who by the way wanted to make sure that his absentee ballot was — that I did that. And I had trouble actually voting for him, absentee ballot today, that made me very concerned.”

Hostin, who reportedly lives in Purchase, N.Y., went on to explain she was told to “put it in an orange bag on the floor, and it looked to me like a Target bag or something.” She added that it wasn’t until she asked for “an official box that said ‘Absentee Ballot'” that an election official went and found it.

Of course, there is a lot of ambiguity in her remarks, but in saying she was “voting for him” Hostin opened up the critical question of who filled out the ballot.

A question some on social media jumped to answer, suggesting that she admitted on air that she broke the law — given what little is known, it’s impossible to say for certain that she did. She may have been just dropping off a ballot her son had already completed.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
