The United States Democratic National Committee have raised concerns on Facebooks policy on paid political advertisements. They claimed that the policy is flawed as it allows the spread of false information.

The concerns were flagged in a letter to Sheryl Sandberg, a top official at Facebook and is part of a series of criticisms from lawmakers following the social media giants decision not to fact check ads run by politicians. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg claims Facebook is reviewing its policies but also does not want to stifle political speech.
