Bill Would Block DOJ Payments to Social Media 

The legislation would slow censorship. 

Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado, together with a number of other cosponsors, has introduced the Exposing Lewd Outlays for Social Networking Companies Act—the ELON Act.

Among other things, the legislation would require the comptroller general of the U.S. to provide Congress with a report on all taxpayer-fund payments made by the Justice Department after January 1, 2015, to Twitter, Meta, Google, Microsoft, and Apple. 

“Big Tech is in bed with the FBI and other agencies to the point where Congress can’t tell where one ends and the other begins,” Representative Boebert said. She added that millions of dollars were known to be sent to Twitter during an election cycle and that the resulting censorship is “incredibly concerning.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Congresswoman Boebert and her colleagues as they address the government’s influence on the flow of information and free speech.
  • For Attorney General Merrick Garland to seek the Lord’s direction as he heads the Justice Department.
