Jones denies knowledge of Russian-style online effort

Alabama Sen. Doug Jones says he was unaware of an experiment run by outside researchers during his campaign seeking to emulate Russian tactics to influence elections

Jones told reporters during a conference call Thursday his campaign didn't know anything about the effort at the time. And Jones says he is "as outraged as everyone else" about the allegations.

Alabama Republican Party chairwoman Terry Lathan has tweeted that the effort was "deeply disturbing."

Jones says his campaign tracking software didn't detect any anti-Moore effort.
