Wikipedia recently deleted Republican Senate Candidate Kathy Barnette’s page, stating that she is not a notable person.
From The Epoch Times. Wikipedia editors deleted a page for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kathy Barnette after arguing she is not a notable person.
Discussion was triggered in April 2021, when an editor said that the references on the page “do not establish notability beyond routine campaign coverage.”
Another editor agreed, saying Barnette had “not received an unusual amount of national-level coverage,” pointing to a page for former Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell. “Obviously, if Barnette wins the election the article can be recreated,” the editor said.
Editors cited Wikipedia guidelines outlining “notability,” which state that being a candidate for political office “does not guarantee notability….”
Several other candidates, including Republican businessman Jeff Bartos, do not have Wikipedia pages….
Barnette, a military veteran who is seeking to become the first black U.S. senator representing Pennsylvania, took note of what happened, telling supporters, “When they cancel me, they’re cancelling you….”
Recent polls indicate Barnette has gained traction since the recent release of a Supreme Court draft opinion that suggests the court is poised to strike down Roe v. Wade. Barnette had 23 percent in a Trafalgar Group survey, behind only Oz….
Barnette has said she’s pro-life and would oppose abortion restrictions….
Update: As of Wednesday morning, May 11, Barnette does not have a Wikipedia page.
