Facebook takes down accounts and pages of Trump ally Roger Stone

JULY 8, 2020 / 4:38 PM / UPDATED 34 MINUTES AGO

(Reuters) - Facebook Inc (FB.O) on Wednesday removed 50 personal and professional pages connected to U.S. President Donald Trump's longtime adviser Roger Stone, who is due to report to prison next week.

The social media platform said Stone and his associates, including a prominent supporter of the right-wing Proud Boys group in Stone's home state of Florida, had used fake accounts and followers to promote Stone's books and posts.

Facebook moved against Stone on the same day it took down accounts tied to employees of the family of Brazilian leader Jair Bolsonaro and two other networks connected to domestic political operations in Ecuador and Ukraine.

Nathaniel Gleicher, Facebook's head of cybersecurity policy, said the removals were meant to show that artificially inflating engagement for political impact would be stopped, no matter how well connected the practitioners.

1. Wow, Roger Stone has connections to Ecuador's rancid hard-right dirtbag President Lenin Moreno!

He has been a pestilence there from the first, but had no idea he had connections with these scumballs. He's settling for the real trash here!

Don't be depressed about your unspeakable error in making a dupe. You'll find there are very compassionate, generous, humane posters here, and I'd love to find out who they are so I could approach them for small loans to tide me over 'til payday!

Be of good cheer, and hope for your guardian angel will help you control yourself better so it doesn't happen again!

3. He's supposed to report on Bastille Day. But will be saved by the dumbbell.

Trump will say that freeing Stone will be like liberating the Bastille. That will encourage his boogalosers for November. Watch
