Can Tom Reed Legally Block His Constituents On Facebook?
My Congressman, Tom Reed, has two Facebook accounts. The first is his “Politician” Facebook page. The second is his official government Facebook page. Tom Reed (or an assistant) blocked me from posting on his “Politician” page well over a year ago and all my comments on that page have been deleted. I am not sure exactly why he blocked me. It might be because I have posted a comment or two that he didn’t like about the Iran nuclear deal. I imagine he didn’t appreciate my column in the Ithaca Journal last year that criticized his bashing of the deal.
Or it might be because he made a post saying something that was bashing President Obama (I forget what it was, probably something about ObamaCare) and then said something like “Everyone who agrees with me, like this post.” I responded by saying, "I wish Facebook had an Unlike button".
