AUBURN, Ala (EETV)- A liberal Super PAC supporting Democratic United States Senate candidate Doug Jones is using false and misleading information in one of their ads.
According to Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill’s office, reports indicate a targeted effort aimed at misinforming or confusing voters in Alabama.
The controversial ad, released by a group called Highway 31, tries to say that a voter’s vote would become public record, but according to the Secretary of State’s office only whether a voter participated in an election becomes public record, not their individual ballot.
According to Merrill’s office the Super PAC has been notified of the false and misleading information in the ad, but has stated to Merril’s office that they will not amend or remove the false information.
In recent days the Jones campaign has lost support in polls to Republican candidate Roy Moore, including a recent CBS News poll that shows Moore leading Jones by six points. This comes as President Donald Trump endorsed Moore and the RNC reinstated its support of Moore's campaign.
