RFK Jr. claimed Google censored him, although the founder's ex helps fund the campaign

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has claimed that Google's YouTube, in order to comply with a regulation against disseminating disinformation, has removed recordings of him speaking about the dangers of vaccinations and the conflict in Ukraine, as well as a speech in which he initially stated that he was considering running for president.

Fast forward a year, and one of Kennedy's strong supporters is Nicole Shanahan, whose riches are partially linked to Google 

because she was married to the company's co-founder, Sergei Brin, from 2018 to 2021 and the two had a 5-year-old daughter together.

"I'm a lifelong Democrat who was excited to see he was running in the Democratic primary,

 not because I thought he would win but because he'd welcome a discourse on environmental health," Shanahan said in an interview with Newsweek on Tuesday.

Shanahan had already donated the maximum $6,600 allowed to Kennedy's campaign and, more recently, gave American Values 2024 $4 million, which the PAC used to partially fund a $7 million Super Bowl ad that superimposed Kennedy's image into a 64-year-old ad for his uncle John F. Kennedy's successful campaign.

Kennedy, who is now running as an independent, told Newsweek in July that social media companies often erase his tweets, and he also testified about it before Congress.

"Real liberals don't censor," he told Newsweek back then, to which Shanahan agreed.

"I'm not going to lie: I find that troublesome. "We need a safe space to have these conversations," she explained.
