Alabama's top prosecutor announced Thursday his office is looking into whether disinformation tactics used against Republican Roy Moore during a 2017 special election violated state campaign laws, The Washington Post reported.

GOP Attorney General Steve Marshall said he was worried the operation — reportedly known as Project Birmingham — could have affected the closely fought Senate race.

"The information is concerning," Marshall told the Post. "The impact it had on the election is something that's significant for us to explore, and we'll go from there."

Moore lost the election to Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., who said he supports a federal investigation of the disinformation campaign, the Post reported.
