Conservative commentator Steven Crowder was temporarily suspended from his Twitter account on Tuesday for posting a video wherein he discusses potential voter fraud linked to what he described as dozens of “non-existent voter addresses.”

“Okay, Big Tech wants to play?” Crowder posted Tuesday. “Today I present dozens of non-existent voter addresses that I’ve verified MYSELF. From Michigan to Nevada. Empty lots etc. I’ll include pictures and a current newspaper as confirmation. It goes down today.”

In a follow-up post, the popular podcast host wrote: “DOZENS of voter names, addresses, and pictures proving they don’t exist. Period.”

That post has been blocked for receiving likes, comments, and retweets by Twitter. The tweet also comes with an attached “warning” about the claim being “disputed” and a potential “risk of violence.”

“This claim of election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, retweeted, or liked due to risk of violence.”

When users click on the warning from Twitter, it directs users to general language on “widespread voter fraud” which does not address the specific claims made by Crowder: 

There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 US presidential election, government officials and election experts confirm. 

According to former attorney general William Barr, the Department of Justice found no evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.” Election officials at the Department of Homeland Security said “the November 3rd election was the most secure in American history.” Voter fraud of any type is incredibly rare, reported The Associated Press and Reuters. Officials and experts warned ahead of Election Day that most interference in US elections comes in the form of misinformation campaigns, many of which are intended to create distrust in America’s electoral process.

“I can confirm to you that people voted from addresses that do not exist,” Crowder captioned his video. That post, too, has been censored by Twitter with the same warning and link to general language about “widespread voter fraud.”

In the video, Crowder says he would swear these claims “under oath” and “penalty of perjury.”

“I can confirm to you that these people — who may not be real people — have voted from addresses that do not exist,” he says.

Crowder also makes a point of emphasizing that he cannot confirm refuted allegations against Dominion Voting Systems and does not discuss the claims. “Dominion isn’t needed,” he says in the video.

On Wednesday morning, Crowder notified his followers that he was restricted from his account on Tuesday over the voter fraud-related posts.

“Was blocked from Twitter for the VERIFIABLE evidence of voter fraud posted yesterday,” he wrote. “BUT I’M BACK!”

“Fight like hell,” the conservative wrote in a follow-up post. In another, he said, “If Twitter can ban evidence verifiable beyond any shadow of a doubt… then do they have any limitations at all? #FreeCrowder.”

Liberal podcast host Tim Pool noted that he was “not sure anyone disputed” Crowder’s claims. “Twitter is publishing false statements of fact on tons of tweets because it’s an automated process and they should be responsible for it,” accused Pool.

Crowder posted a video Wednesday discussing the censorship.
