FEC OKs Google Plan To Stop Spamming GOP Gmail

  • The Federal Election Commission approved a Google pilot program on Thursday to exempt political groups from Gmail spam filters, likely ending a feud with Republicans that claim the service is biased against their fundraising efforts.
  • n a 4-1 vote, the FEC cleared the way for Google to let political parties and groups opt in to the program for free. The Big Tech firm said it wanted approval first, concerned that it might be considered an “in-kind” gift to groups involved.
