In the latest Google Transparency Report, the online giant reported that the posts were criticizing the local mayor. Google did not identify the mayor and the blogs. Google received 8 complaints during the period for defamation, government criticism, and impersonation. All complaints are directed to the posts in the Blogger platform.
