The Democrat in the Alabama Senate Race runs as a non-white supremacist

As Mother Jones reported in a recent article, the cases for which Doug Jones, the Democrat up against Republican Roy Moore in the Alabama special Senate election, “is most famous were his successful 2001 and 2002 prosecutions of two Ku Klux Klan members who had bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963.” That horrific crime killed four young African American girls and “helped spur the passage of the Civil Rights Act the following year.”

Jones has a new ad out and the amazing thing about it and his candidacy is that they seem to imply that a reason to vote for him is that he’s the candidate not sympathetic to white supremacy, because in 2017 that’s a distinction we really need to make. More amazing still is that Moore is going to win.
