The New York Times discovered a group researchers used Russian tactics to oppose Rep. candidate Roy Moore. Facebook has since closed the accounts of several individuals involved with the effort.
“We’ve recently removed five accounts run by multiple individuals for engaging in coordinated inauthentic behavior on Facebook around the Alabama special election, and our investigation is ongoing.”
Facebook Spokesperson The New York Times obtained an internal report on the secret disinformation project.
The project was spearheaded by Democratic tech experts.
