Republicans must turn their backs on Roy Moore

Republicans must turn their backs on Roy Moore

"There's now a plausible path for Democrat Doug Jones to win the Alabama Senate race next month; a write-in campaign for defeated establishment candidate Luther Strange could throw a three-way race to the Democrat - and that would deprive the Republicans of a crucial Senate vote", Valliere wrote in a note to clients Monday. The information was in a filing to the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

"(Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell and (Arizona Sen.) John McCain, what they said about Moore ending his campaign just really gets to me.

If Moore wins the Alabama special election scheduled for December 12, he'd serve alongside GOP colleagues who have mostly hedged their words about whether he should even run anymore.

"Like most Americans, the president believes we can not allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person's life", Ms. Sanders said.

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that Moore had engaged in sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.

Moore has called the allegations "fake news".

Every day Moore remains in the race is a day where Republicans - already reeling from across-the-board losses in the 2017 election that can be directly traced back to President Donald Trump's unpopularity - watch their brand further deteriorate. If after reading the Washington Post's account with 30 sources and significant details you wouldn't trust a candidate to babysit your adolescent, you shouldn't vote to put him in office either.

Bannon asks, "Now is that a coincidence?" But I will have something to say about that. Even in Alabama, it is immoral and illegal for a 32-year-old man to initiate sexual contact with a minor.

"If there's even a shred of evidence to these accusations, Gov. Ivey and the Alabama Republican Party need to do everything in their power to remove Judge Moore from the ballot", said Steven Law, chief executive of the Senate Leadership Fund.

In the face of massive backlash from both within the GOP and without, the 70-year-old Moore seems to have found an advocate in Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler, who invoked the relationship between Mary and Joseph to defend the former judge's sexual misdemeanours.

Billie went missing September 18 after she never showed up for work at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story. He remained in custody at the Virginia Beach Correctional Center and never posted bond, although he was eligible.

As of Friday morning, the senators' pictures still appear on the online link to Moore's fundraising appeal.

"This is what happens when you let reckless, incompetent idiots like Steve Bannon go out and recruit candidates who have absolutely no business running for the U.S. Senate", said Josh Holmes, a former McConnell aide. Why would women say these things if they are not true? "The Obama-Clinton Machine's liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I've EVER faced". He told potential donors that he is counting on the help of "God-fearing conservatives like you to stand with me at this critical moment". On Thursday, he denied the allegations the women made about him in on-the-record interviews included in the report, published by The Washington Post.

"He dated her. He married her, and they've been married about 35 years".

Officials in Alabama said the opinions of national Republican leaders would have little effect on the state party.

Under Alabama state law, the ballot can not be changed within 76 days of an election. He's not going to like Roy Moore because Shelby was a Democrat for a long time.

The question this poll can not really answer is the level of detail about the allegations against Moore that voters absorbed the day they were released - presumably not a lot of Alabamians read the Washington Post - and whether the sheer creepiness of Moore's reported conduct came through.

Other Republicans have responded in the wake of The Washington Post story that came out late Thursday.

The problem, as readily became apparent from Moore's defiant statements, is that he isn't going to step aside.

Moore said his role as a father and grandfather makes him extra protective of young women. "The legal drinking age in Alabama was 19".
