Jones, an erstwhile complainant who sentenced two onetime Klansmen in the bombing of Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church, has pursued Moore as someone who would demean Alabama on a national stage.  Jones expressed in a novel TV advertisement that he can work better with Republicans that Roy Moore can work with anyone.
