Sen. Josh Hawley has found a new publisher for his book after it was dropped by Simon & Schuster after an attack on the US Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump.
The book titled “The Tyranny of Big Tech” is important for large tech corporations including Google and Facebook. The next day of the Capitol attack, Simon & Schuster said it would no longer publish the senator’s book.
Conservative publisher Regery Publishing will publish the book in the summer of this year, its parent Salem Media Group said in a statement on Monday.
Howley, a Missouri Republican, has previously called for states’ electoral college votes that voted to reject President-Elect Joe Biden.
Hawley, 41, was elected to the Senate in 2018. He was the first member of his chamber to announce his involvement in efforts initiated by conservatives in the House of Representatives to challenge the normally formal process of certifying an election vote rally.
He came under fire after an attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters on 6 January, which delayed the certification of Biden’s electoral victory for several hours that day, as lawmakers fled to seek protection from a large crowd of security forces Was forced to. Five people, including a Capitol police officer, were killed in the violence.
