Michigan Attorney Sues Facebook Over Lost Primary, Just Wants an Apology
But Moughni isn't seeking financial restitution. He says he only wants an apology and an explanation from Facebook. At the time that his Facebook page was pulled, however, Moughni had only 1,600 friends. At the same point in time, Dingell had roughly 6,000. Is Moughni simply looking for a way to excuse his poor showing? Trying to unseat one of the most entrenched incumbents in the country is a daunting task, and the Facebook numbers show that Moughni was nowhere near as popular as his opponent. If the challenger truly thought that Facebook had cost him the election, we wonder why it took so long for him to raise the issue. If you ask us, it just seems like a publicity stunt from a sore loser.
