Facebook suspends accounts over Alabama Senate race tactics
The Washington Post and New York Times have reported that a social media researcher acknowledged testing misleading online tactics during U.S. Sen. Doug Jones’ campaign against Republican Roy Moore last year.
The effort was modeled on alleged Russian attempts to bolster the candidacy of President Donald Trump in 2016.
Jones told reporters last week that his campaign didn’t know anything about the effort. He said he is “as outraged as everyone else” about the allegations.
