Facebook suspends professional page for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Amanda Chase: Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase, who is running for the Republican nomination for Governor, found her professional Facebook page suspended. While it is unclear exactly why it happened, a news report speculated that it was because she had been "spreading misinformation and conspiracy theories." Chase stated that her page will be "silenced for 60 days." The news report claimed that multiple posts on Chase's timeline recently had claimed "that Antifa was responsible for breaking-into the Capitol," including a news report "that has since been corrected, that claimed a facial recognition firm matched identities of those storming the Capitol building to members of Antifa." The news report also said that Chase attended the protest that ended in the Capitol riot.
