Facebook Suspends Accounts Tied to Dem Disinformation Scheme in Alabama Race
By Greg Norman

Facebook suspended five accounts linked to Democratic operatives who engaged in "coordinated inauthentic behavior" in a bid to steer votes away from Alabama Republican Roy Moore during last year's special Senate election.
The announcement comes following a New York Times report last week that exposed the scheme, in which the users created a Facebook page and imitated conservative Alabamians who weren't satisfied with the Republican candidate while encouraging others to write in another candidate. Moore, whose campaign ultimately was clouded by allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls while he was in his 30s, ended up losing the race to Democrat Doug Jones.
