Mailchimp Censors Senator J.D. Vance’s Press Release, Blames ‘Error’

May 10, 2023 | Political News

The press team for Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) had their access to Mailchimp suspended after linking to a post on Truth Social by Donald Trump, in which the former president backed the Ohio senator’s new legislation on railway safety.

Mailchimp, one of the most widely-used email marketing platforms, took more than a day to restore access to Sen. Vance’s team, blaming the suspension on an error caused by Omnivore, the company’s automatic “abuse prevention” system.

“Mailchimp suspended my press team’s account after we announced President Trump’s support for the Railway Safety Act,” tweeted Sen. Vance. “But big tech censorship won’t stop us from fighting for the people of East Palestine.”
