Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called for a meeting with Google amid a recent study that found the company was unfairly filtering GOP lawmakers’ emails to be hidden in spam folders.
After the meeting, Cruz told Politico that the tech giant purposely ignored Republican senators’ questions regarding Gmail’s alleged suppression of conservative political candidates’ emails.
“Google deflected, refused to provide any data, repeatedly refused to answer direct questions.”
According to the study, Gmail marked 59.3 percent more emails from the right as spam than compared to left-leaning candidates. It also revealed that months leading up to the 2020 election, it exhibited political bias towards the two parties.
