EXCLUSIVE: Congressional Candidate Banned From Instagram, Calls for FEC Investigation

Facebook-owned Instagram has banned a Republican candidate for U.S. Congress from using its platform. 

“Your account has been disabled for violating our terms,” Instagram said in an automated message to Tom Norton’s campaign account.

Norton is a Republican seeking to primary recently-turned Independent Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District, who quit the Republican party in a hissy fit over President Donald J. Trump.

“Silicon Valley Big Tech firms, in pursuit of their totalitarian censorship regime, is coordinating elections on behalf of globalist candidates in federal election to save their favorite open-border, cheap labor, Trump hating Congresscritter, Justin Amash,” Norton told The Rundown.

“This is a serious offense that goes to the core of how our elections are decided,” he continued. “Do we allow a few socialist-leaning billionaires in California to buy every election across America with their digital tools? Or do we hold them to account for their constant effort to purchase these election? The FEC needs to investigate at once. Whoever at Facebook and Instagram is allowing this censorship to move forward needs to be prosecuted with felony coordination.”

Instagram did not return a comment request.
