Twitter Suspends GOP Senator For Hunting Photo

Fox News reports:

Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., is standing by the photo of him and his wife hunting that reportedly got him suspended from Twitter Monday night, as #FreeSteveDaines began to gain popularity among conservatives on social media. “My wife is a great shot. What can I say?” Daines told Fox News Digital.

“The Senator thinks it’s preposterous that a picture of him and his wife hunting — an activity that is engrained in the Montana way of life — would be against Twitter rules. Our team has reached out to Twitter, and we’ll be working to get this resolved,” Rachel Dumke, press secretary for Daines, said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

The senator from the Big Sky State was suspended from the media outlet Monday evening, over a photo of him and his wife next to a Montana antelope that according to Twitter violated the platform’s “rules against graphic violence.”
