Facebook still disabling GOP political advertising right before the election

Washington ExaminerFacebook temporarily disabled a Republican advertising effort in the Georgia Senate runoffs days before the election.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee announced the “unacceptable” restrictions on Twitter, writing, “Facebook has shut down the ad account for the Georgia Battleground Fund, a joint fundraising committee for NRSC, @Perduesenate, and @kloeffler. This is unacceptable with only 4 days to Election Day.”

It's "unacceptable", but it's going to happen, and the Senate just shut down the last realistic chance to remove Section 230 protections from Big Tech. This sort of thing will keep happening now that the lack of consequences have been demonstrated.
