Rep. Nunes sues Twitter & parody accounts for $250 million

A parody Twitter account purporting to be owned by an unhappy cow living on one of Rep. Devin Nunes’ Iowa farms attacked the California Republican as a “treasonous cowpoke” and “udder-ly worthless” during the 2018 campaign.

Now Nunes wants $250 million in damages from Twitter for failing to police the accounts of @DevinCow as well as another parody, @DevinNunesMom, and a political activist named Liz Mair.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Virginia, Nunes complained that all three defamed him in hundreds of tweets over several months last year. It also seeks $350,000 in punitive damages.

Nunes, a close ally of President Trump, says in his complaint that he endured what “no human being should ever have to bear and suffer in their whole life.” He said it caused him to win reelection last November by a narrower margin than in the past and distracted him from running the House investigation into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election.

Among other things, Nunes, from Tulare, cited a variety of tweets that used crude humor to accuse him of criminal behavior, including soliciting prostitutes.

Most politicians and celebrities today face similar parody accounts. Many just ignore them, though a few play along. A Twitter account called @Betosblog lampoons Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rouke. Parody accounts of President Trump have hundreds of thousands of followers.

The @DevinNunesMom account was suspended by Twitter after his actual mother, Toni Dian Nunes, complained.

But if Nunes hoped his lawsuit would intimidate his trollers into silence, the move may have backfired.

The @DevinCow account has jumped from just over 1,000 followers to more than 115,000 followers since the suit was filed.

Trump retweeted the quality lawsuit since he also is fighting all social media platforms (with false attacks obviously)

perhaps the lawsuit will get Trump banned from Twitter as he falsely smears people constantly

Long overdue lawsuit. Kudos to Nunes for fighting back against pervasive leftist censorship of social media.

If Nunes follows through and loses, it will be legally accurate to call him a feckless cunt.

i'm not sure he cares about success... not sure he even officially filed the suit

perhaps just about drawing attention to himself & driving wedges, he loves driving up hate levels with bullshit

in the past he has claimed himself, Gaetz, Jordan & Meadows were shadow-banned by Twitter (suspiciously those are the same 4 Trump capos i noted some other thread :p)... not sure there was ever any evidence of the 'conservative shadow-banning' beyond tamping down pizza-gate idiots

plus he has tossed out multiple bullshit 'outrage' stories over Mueller / DOJ

"i'm not sure he cares about success..."

It's almost undoubtedly just about publicity. Which should result in heavy fines by the courts. But we know it won't.

I would assume a Fox News of social media platforms is on the way to ensure Retrumplicants never are exposed to any accurate info

they will smear the mainstream social media same as done with regular media (already being done obviously by team Trump)

"(already being done obviously by the right since well before Trump)"

I really can't hammer this point home enough.

and Trump revved it into high gear with false and misleading attacks

as in how Google is supposedly biased as searching "Trump" leads to mostly negative stories... well what positive stories should show for "Trump"? unemployment rates should be a "Trump" result?

what he does personally is awful 95% of the time so 95% of his coverage is negative

"Facebook, Twitter and Google are so biased toward the Dems it is ridiculous! Twitter, in fact, has made it much more difficult for people to join @realDonaldTrump. They have removed many names & greatly slowed the level and speed of increase. They have acknowledged-done NOTHING!"
~lying idiot

make a Twitter account, see if you have trouble following him

his idiotic false accusation probably after a purge of bots or something

He is no doubt also complaining it is hard to add new bots too.

Russia's Putin Signs Law Banning Fake News, Insulting the State Online
By Reuters
March 18, 2019

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin has signed into law tough new fines for Russians who spread what the authorities regard as fake news or who show "blatant disrespect" for the state online, an official portal for legal information showed on Monday.

Critics have warned that the legislation could create a mechanism for state censorship, but lawmakers say the new measures are needed to combat false news reports and abusive online comments.

The legislation grants authorities the power to block websites if they fail to comply with requests to remove information that the state deems to be factually inaccurate.

We have a FVEY nation caging a kid and threatening him with a 14-year sentence for sharing the mosque video online, so we probably shouldn't pretend we're any better.

i think you mean a kid has been charged with crimes that carry a -maximum- penalty of 14 years when in reality he will get a slap on the wrist & have to sing a sad song to the Steward while the cavalry foolishly charges Osgiliath

funny bit in the lawsuit that some have noted:

"In her endless barrage of tweets, Devin Nunes’ Mom maliciously attacked every aspect of Nunes’ character, honesty, integrity, ethics and fitness to perform his duties as a United States Congressman"


they probably should've kept the twitter names in "@" format


...also Nunes' character, honesty, integrity, ethics and fitness all deserve to be attacked

Why? That actually is Devin Nunes' mom. :o)
