Late Wednesday, the Alabama Secretary of State’s office issued a statement claiming what it described as a “misleading” ad from the Birmingham-based pro-Doug Jones super PAC Highway 31 was removed by Google at its behest.
According to the release, the office headed by John Merrill required “several intense discussions,” but resulted in Google removing the ad.
“Secretary Merrill’s team contacted the Media and Advertising team at Google (YouTube’s parent company) and through several intense discussions and many references to Alabama State Law the team at Google felt the ad should be “disapproved” and that it was in violation of the AdWords advertising policies.”
“If you don’t vote, and Roy Moore – a child predator – wins, could you live with that?
Not much is known about the Highway 31 super PAC and who is financing its efforts.
