Senator Marco Rubio accuses Gmail of censoring his emails

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has accused Google of election bias for allegedly censoring his campaign emails. He said that since Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) announced running for Senate in the upcoming midterm elections, about two-thirds of his campaign emails have not reached his registered supporters who use Google’s email service Gmail.

“Marco Rubio for Senate is in @Google purgatory. Since a Pelosi puppet announced she was running against me, they have sent 66% of my emails to REGISTERED SUPPORTERS with @gmail to spam,” Rubio wrote on Twitter. “And during the final weeks of finance quarters, it climbs to over 90%.”

Rubio’s complaint is consistent with a study conducted by the North Carolina State University, which found that Gmail censored significantly more campaign emails by Republican candidates compared to Democratic candidates.

“Gmail marked 59.3% more emails from the right candidates as spam compared to the left candidates,” the study stated.

However, the same study found that Outlook email addresses favored Republicans over Democrats.

Following the release of the study, a group of Republican lawmakers filed a joint complaint with the Federal Election Commission to investigate Gmail.
