Election Interference? Rubio Accuses Google of Censoring Campaign Emails

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) condemned Google, suggesting the platform meddled with America’s democratic process in a scathing post.

Big Tech, not Russia! 

“Marco Rubio for Senate is in @Google purgatory,” Rubio declared in a May 21 tweet. “Since a Pelosi puppet announced she was running against me they have sent 66% of my emails to REGISTERED SUPPORTERS with @gmailSpam. And during the final weeks of finance quarters it climbs to over 90%.” Conservative leaders in recent weeks have sounded the alarm that Gmail is disproportionately flagging their outreach to potential voters as “spam” or junk mail before American voters can read it themselves.

“Google deflected, refused to provide any data, repeatedly refused to answer direct questions,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told MRC Free Speech America after a May meeting between GOP senators and Google leadership.

The complaints emerged after North Carolina State University released a devastating study: “A Peek into the Political Biases in Email Spam Filtering Algorithms During US Election 2020.” The findings paint a damning image of how Gmail compares to other email services:

“Summary. Our observations … revealed that all [spam-filtering algorithms]In the weeks leading to 2020 US Elections, there were political biases. Outlook and Yahoo lean towards the right, while Gmail was more inclined to the Democrats (Democrats). Gmail marked 59.3% more emails from the right candidates as spam compared to the left candidates, whereas Outlook and Yahoo marked 20.4% and 14.2% more emails from left candidates as spam compared to the right candidates, respectively.”
