An ad paid for by the shadowy pro-Doug Jones Highway 31 super PAC claims that Judge Roy Moore has ties to the same white supremacist group that inspired mass murderer Dylan Roof.
“Roy Moore had ties to the same white supremacist group that inspired the Charleston shooter,” the six-second video claims without providing any evidence to back up the claim.
You can see the ad below:
A reader of the Gateway Pundit reportedly told the site:
“We Alabamians are getting highly disturbing ads from an unknown PAC ‘Highway 31’ targeting Roy Moore on YouTube. I live in Fairhope, where the Moore rally was held earlier today. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it; luckily I was able to grab the unlisted video links by trying to share the ad. Surely the first video violates some kind of voter intimidation laws?”
As we reported earlier, the same PAC produced at least two ads that appeared to coerce voters by telling them their communities would know whether or not they helped Moore win the election.
So what are these alleged ties?
According to AL.com:
The report includes a copy of the group’s newsletter, the “Citizens Informer” which features a picture of Moore and other speakers at the group’s semi-annual national conference.
The paper notes Moore had gained recognition for hanging a copy of the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. The stance later vaulted Moore to national prominence. It also led to his eventual dismissal as the state’s chief justice in 2003, after he refused to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Supreme Court.
The same CCC newsletter from 20 years ago also notes CCC convention delegates were greeted by then-Jefferson County Commissioner (later chair) Bettye Fine Collins and Birmingham City Councilman Dr. Jimmy Blake.
The CCC is the nation’s largest white nationalist group, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC says the group is a reincarnation of the White Citizens Councils that were formed to resist desegregation in the 1950s and 1960s.
On its website the group said, “The C of CC unequivocally condemns Roof’s murderous actions.”
“The Democrats can’t run on their record or policies,” Jim Hoft said. “So in Alabama they have now resorted on comparing Republican Roy Moore to a mass murderer.”
Regarding the somewhat shadowy Highway 31, the Daily Wire noted:
Brendan Fischer, the director of the FEC and federal reform programs at the Campaign Legal Center, called Highway 31’s actions “wild” and a blatant attempt to hide who is pushing for Doug Jones.
“This looks like a blatant effort to dodge disclosure requirements,” Fischer said. “And it could have the effect of keeping voters in the dark about who is funding these ads until after Election Day.”
