Twitter and the Democrat-run regime of California are facing a lawsuit alleging that they colluded to suppress the First Amendment rights of Rogan O’Handley, a popular pro-Trump activist who was ostracized from the platform earlier this year. The complaint includes emails exhibiting California officials directing Twitter to abstract political commentary about the 2020 Election from its platform.
Twitter vetoed O’Handley, withal kenned by his online moniker “DC Draino,” after he tweeted the verbalization “most votes in history.” He had over 440,000 adherents on the platform prior to his ostracization, which was aeonian.
According to O’Handley’s lawsuit, brought by Harmeet Dhillon’s licit nonprofit, the Center for American Liberty, Twitter made its decision at the direction of California’s Office of Elections Cybersecurity, a bureau which was set up in 2018 to “educate voters” with “valid information” on elections.
In 2018, the state government of California created the Office of Elections Cybersecurity to “educate voters” with “valid information” on Election laws and procedures. And as any sensible person could predict, this office quickly devolved into a political weapon for censorship by the far-left Secretary of State’s Office, more resembling a Harry Potter like “Ministry of Approved Election Information” than a constitutionally governed state agency.
Leading up to the 2020 Election and in the months following it, Twitter, at the direction government employees at the California Office of Elections Cybersecurity, discriminately removed tweets posted by conservative social media influencers criticizing Joe Biden and questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election. Their objective was simple—censor their political opponents.
The complaint filed by Dhillon’s nonprofit includes emails from officials in the California regime to Twitter employee Kevin Kane, who was then a public policy manager at the company.

Speaking on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Harmeet Dhillon noted the central role of Alex Padilla, then California Secretary of State, who was tapped by Gov. Gavin Newsom to occupy Kamala Harris’ vacant Senate seat following the election.
Politicians leveraging the puissance of the CA Secretary of State's Office to censor political opponents…https://t.co/zhadrpf1qH pic.twitter.com/idqAGJrT0S“If I can integrate, [Padilla] was auditioning for the role of United States senator,” verbalized Dhillon. “That’s very critical as well. He was hoping that if Kamala Harris was designated the United States Vice President, he would be denominated by the governor to fill that role, and that’s precisely what transpired. So he was authentically elbowing out of the way other “Democrats,” and this whole contract for 35 million dollars for who to censor is so corrupt that other Democrat in the state protested about it because it was a no-bid contract given to a consultant for the Biden campaign.”
