Facebook Censors Ron Paul?

The theme of my email inbox this morning (it’s morning for me, anyway) is that for some reason a search for presidential candidate “Ron Paul” in Facebook Groups yields zero results. The reason isn’t because there aren’t any Ron Paul groups – a search for “Paul” shows hundreds. For some reason, the search is blocked.

Other candidate show up just fine. More than 500 groups show up for each of John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and others.

But the wacky Ron Paul? Nada.

I’ve got calls into Facebook but everyone is still in New York after the big announcement yesterday and they don’t seem to be super responsive today.

Update: Was just sent this as well.

Update 2: Facebook says this is now fixed in the comments, and blames this on a bug, which is…highly unlikely.
