Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has recently sued Google for at least $50 million for its alleged “discriminatory actions” against her 2020 campaign. The preeminent Hindu member of the US congress filed a lawsuit based on the American tech giant’s “arbitrary and capricious treatment of Gabbard’s campaign.”
The 38-year-old Iraq war veteran filed the case on Thursday in a federal court in Los Angeles, California. The suit added that Google violated free speech when the tech giant shelved Gabbard’s campaign advertising account after the first Democratic debate in June.
On June 27, the representative’s campaign committee, Tulsi Now Inc, alleged that Google suspended its advertising account for six hours. The move impended the drive’s ability to raise money and stopped her message from reaching potential voters.
