Douglas "Doug" Jones is an Alabama attorney and former US Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, who is running for the December 12th, 2017 special election for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions against Roy Moore. Jones first came to prominence in 1998, when, as US Attorney, he prosecuted two members of the Ku Klux Klan for the 1963 Birmingham Church Bombing, which had killed four girls.
Jones supports abortion, even to the point of supporting partial birth abortion. While Jones claims to support gun rights and the Second Amendment, many of his statements show that he really supports further gun control. In addition, many of Jone's statements on the Second Amendment show that he does not understand the purpose of the Second Amendment, as he implies it exists for hunting rights, rather than for U.S. citizens to hold the government accountable. He supports the homosexual agenda. Jones is running with the support of and funding from out-of-state liberals.
