Breitbart: Republican congressional candidate Laura Loomer filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Twitter on Monday, alleging that the company has made an in-kind contribution to her political opponents by denying her access to the platform.
Loomer is represented by Charlie Spies, an attorney who has fought numerous high-profile FEC cases.
In a comment, Spies stated, “This is a first-of-its-kind complaint and takes into account the influential role that social media corporations play in our elections.”
Spies continued, “Once Ms. Loomer became a federal candidate, it became illegal for Twitter to ban her while providing free access to her Democrat opponent. Corporate owned public forums like Twitter must either provide equal time and access for all candidates for public office, or charge market value. Twitter should not be exempt from Equal Time laws, and a violation like the one occurring with Ms. Loomer is an impermissible in-kind corporate contribution to her opponent.” read more
