Elon Musk’s disclosure of internal Twitter material on censorship and biased editing on the social media platform has opened the box of surprises. They continue to arrive.
Following Musk’s purge at Twitter’s headquarters and the revelation that information concerning Hunter Biden’s laptop was suppressed, additional clandestine activities are coming to light. Now that internal Twitter communications have been found, it appears that the campaign of another prominent Democratic candidate cooperated with Twitter employees to delete accounts containing so-called election disinformation.
Katie Hobbs, the next Democratic governor of Arizona and current Secretary of State, reportedly collaborated with former Twitter employees and executives to flag particular users and accounts, according to internal Twitter communications. The shocking discovery follows Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s disclosure last week, via writer Matt Taibbi, of internal corporate messages indicating the site collaborated with the Democratic Party to suppress conservatives.
Hobbs was just named the victor against Republican rival Kari Lake by less than one percentage point. Current Republican Governor Doug Ducey, the state attorney general, and the chief justice will all declare Hobbs as the victor.
Hobbs has not yet been conceded by Lake. And she has more ammo to use against Hobbs now that he sought to have Twitter erase revealing tweets. Lake termed the Twitter disclosure a “Conflict of Interest, Coercion, Corruption.”
The Daily Wire reports:
According to an email on January 7, 2021, the communications director for Hobbs’ Secretary of State office emailed the Center for Internet Security (CIS), a 501 nonprofit cybersecurity organization, saying they are “flagging” an unidentified Twitter profile for review under the subject line titled “Election Related Misinformation.” The email also included an unknown employee at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, a branch under the federal government’s Department of Homeland Security.
A CIS representative forwarded the message to a Twitter staffer saying, “Please see this report below from the Arizona SOS office. Please let me know if you have any questions.” The Twitter employee then responded in another email: “Thank you … both tweets have been removed from the service.”
One America News Network anchor Christina Bobb replied with a tweet featuring screenshots of the purported email exchanges, stating, “Unreal! The office of Katie Hobbs approaches Twitter to get posts deleted! So, the democratic candidate who managed the Arizona election suppressed her political opponents, interrupted voting on Election Day, and then threatened to prosecute counties that did not proclaim her the winner.

In a video posted to her social media, Lake advised, “stay tuned,” adding that a lawsuit she intends to file includes “at least one smoking gun” whistleblower as well as a “team of patriotic, talented lawyers on a legal case to challenge the botched elections.” CONTINUE READING…
