Google shoots back at accusations of political bias after an employee of the leaked e-mail mentioned the company’s efforts with a Latino non-profit before 2016, the US presidential election.

The email, written by Google’s former head of multicultural marketing and obtained exclusively by Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the details of the various ways in which the company is working to increase the voter turnout.

A spokesman of Google hit back at claims of political bias on Wednesday.

LEAKED GOOGLE EMPLOYEE OF THE E-MAIL SHOWS EFFORT TO BOOST LATINO VOTE, A SURPRISE ON THE SUPPORT OF TRUMP

“The employee is e-mail an expression of her personal political views on the outcome of the 2016 election, and that these views do not reflect an official position of the company,” the spokesman told Fox News. “We have nearly 90,000 employees from a wide range of political preferences. The e-mail itself explicitly notes that they have a personal conversation, and that Google’s efforts were non-partisan.”

In the last paragraph of the e-mail of the staff member writes that they are sharing personal opinions.”

The college of the e-mail also listed on the tech giant’s support of Voto Latino, a non-profit group co-founded by actress Rosario Dawson, according to its website, which seeks to “transform America by recognizing the Latinos’ innate leadership.”

Although the e-mail states that Voto Latino helped ferry voters to the polls in key states, something which the Google employee referred to as a “silent donation,” a source familiar with the matter told Fox News that Google was not able to find a record of any donation to the non-profit.

“Our election and voting information is made available for all Americans who are looking for it—it is not focused on other locations or demographic groups. And contrary to reports, we do not have any donation—monetary, in-kind, silent or otherwise, Voto Latino to get people to the polls,” the Google spokesman told Fox News.

The California-based company also rejected claims that the pre-election actions were biased against cda, pointing to her work with the non-partisan National Voter Registration Day, and his efforts for the protection of the elections of hacking and digital attacks.

“The suggestion that Google’s products or actions are politically biased is simply wrong,” Google’s spokesman said. “As we approach the mid-term election, we will continue to ensure that our products and election efforts to remain strictly non-partisan in nature. Our goal is to equip the users with accurate, up-to-date information about their elections—not in support of a particular candidate or ideology.”
