From AL: An ad opposing Roy Moore's bid for the U.S. Senate has been removed from You Tube and other digital platforms because it was misleading and confusing to voters, according to the state's top elections official.


Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said the ad - which suggested that a record of how citizens voted in next week's Senate election would be kept on file - has been removed after discussions between his office and Google, the parent company for You Tube.

The ad was removed by Google at the request of Merrill's office, he said in a statement released Wednesday night.

The ad was produced by Highway 31, a new Alabama-based political action committee working to help Democrat Doug Jones win Tuesday's election.

Merrill said Tuesday he had received complaints about the ad "from several sources" and that his office had contacted Highway 31 to "express the misrepresentations presented in this political commercial."

Pro-Doug Jones Ad Threatens Doxxing of Roy Moore Supporters

A pro-Doug Jones ad is now under investigation after it was reported by numerous people to have consisted of voter intimidation by threatening the doxxing of Roy Moore supports. "Your vote is public record," the ad states.

"and your community will know,"

"whether or not you helped stop Roy Moore."

What's also public record are the names of sponsors and the pacs that pay for these threatening advertisements. On the corner of the ad is a link to ALvoteplan.com, which is paid for by an pro-Doug Jones super PAC called Highway 31. The Alabama-based super PAC has also come under fire for not disclosing its donors before the vote, which is required. From The Daily Beast: The biggest independent spender in the contentious Alabama Senate race is a super PAC backing Democrat Doug Jones. But voters will have no idea who is funding its seven-figure ad blitz until the election is over. Super PACs are required to disclose their donors, but the group Highway 31 has structured its spending in a way that campaign-finance experts say is almost unprecedented. While legal, it will have the effect of obscuring the group’s benefactors, who will have financed a series of ads over the last two months of the campaign propping up Jones and hammering his Republican opponent, former State Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore. Highway 31 has reported nearly $2 million worth of ads in the race, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission, making it the single largest independent spender of the general-election contest. The group filed what was expected to be its first itemized disclosure of donors and expenditures Thursday. But in the filing, Highway 31 said it had received and spent no money whatsoever.
