(Missourinet) Missouri Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler’s personal Twitter account has been suspended. Missourinet’s Marshall Griffin tells us why:

The social media giant took action against the Republican from west-central Missouri for criticizing trans-women athletes. The tweet reads: “Women’s sports are for women, not men pretending to be women.” Hartzler blasted Twitter in a press release, saying the company views her as a bigger threat than Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose Twitter account is still active. She says she won’t delete the tweet, even if it means her personal account remains suspended. Marshall Griffin, Missourinet.
