From AP News.
Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn announced her Senate campaign, and Twitter shut down her video ad due to a statement Blackburn makes about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research.
Blackburn, who is running for the seat being opened by the retirement of Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, boasts in the ad that she “stopped the sale of baby body parts.” A Twitter representative told the candidate’s vendors on Monday that the statement was “deemed an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction”.
Joe Walsh, former Congressman and now right-wing talk show host tweeted in response, “Twitter shuts down Marsha Blackburn’s campaign video cuz Twitter supports abortion rights. Partisan. Pathetic.”
