Democratic primary candidate for president, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, has filed a lawsuit against Google over claims of “election interference.”

In the complaint filed by Gabbard’s campaign committee, Tulsi Now Inc., the congresswoman alleges that the search giant suspended her presidential campaign’s Google ad account after the first Democratic primary debates last month. 

Gabbard seeks damages of up to $50 million and an injunction prohibiting Google from taking any further action against the account in the future.
