Republican politician and activist Laura Loomer, who ran for Congress in Florida in 2020 and has filed to do so again in 2022, has reportedly been banned from the payment processing platform Stripe.
Loomer says that the ban occurred just hours after she briefed Republican lawmakers in Florida on corporate censorship, specifically raising the issue of payment processor blacklisting.
