Ben Bergquam, an investigative reporter for Real America’s Voice, was not only denied government-issued press credentials and removed from public spaces last week at the Maricopa County election tabulation center- but he was denied access to press conferences with election officials, and now this week Bergquam has been censored from Twitter for reporting there on the same elections he was shut out from covering.
Here is what Bergquam has been through:

Here is the warning that was overlayed on Bergquam’s tweet if anyone attempted to interact with the post:
