Republicans file FEC complaint over Gmail sending campaign emails to spam

Oct 5, 2022 | Political News

The Republican National Committee (RNC) says that in September alone, Google censored about 22 million fundraising and get-out-the-vote (GOTV) emails by sending them to the spam folders of Gmail users. The RNC is now considering legal options to end what they see as a “clear pattern of bias,” Fox Digital said.

The RNC provided Fox News with data showing that at the end of each month, emails sent to subscribers using Gmail accounts are being sent to the spam folders. On September 28, over 3.1 millions emails sent by the RNC were sent to the spam folders. On September 29, Google censored over 9.8 million emails, and on September 30, over 9.97 million emails.

RNC told Fox News that they have contacted Google about the issue “for months” and nothing has been done.
