Washington GOP boosts pressure on Alabama party on Moore

Washington GOP boosts pressure on Alabama party on Moore

On the same afternoon that the Republican National Committee stopped funding Senate candidate Roy Moore's campaign, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Moore would be expelled from Congress if elected, Rep. Mo Brooks risked his life to defend the accused child molester. "We are shocked and appalled that anyone would stoop to this level to discredit real journalism".

Roy Moore's political future should remain in the hands of the voters of Alabama, columnist and commentator Jeffrey Lord told Newsmax TV on Tuesday. And on Monday, a separate Alabama woman alleged Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager, and described her experience at a news conference, represented by attorney Gloria Allred.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are very serious", Hawley said Monday. Moore has dismissed the accusations as false.

Trump supported Moore's opponent, Luther Strange, in the Republican primary but threw his support to Moore after Strange was defeated.

"So you still believe Roy Moore?" the reporter asked again.

Jones' campaign released a new ad on Tuesday featuring Republican voters who say they are backing the Democrat. Moore is facing demands from Washington Republicans to quit the race as women have emerged saying he groped them when they were teenagers decades ago. But Sessions declined to say whether he thinks Moore should drop out of the race. Speaking at Walker Springs Road Baptist Church in rural south Alabama Tuesday evening, the senate candidate said he knows he has "made a few people mad". "They've done everything they could, and now they are together to try to keep me from going to Washington", Moore said. Some evangelicals in Alabama still consider Moore a champion of their faith - a politician willing to stand up for Christian values. "In the state of Missouri, they are criminal - these are criminal allegations". But other evangelicals feel the allegations force them to make an uncomfortable decision.

Totaling the numbers, the three networks have focused on the Moore scandal 40 times more than Menendez's trial, which Newsbusters points out "is based on an actual federal prosecution, as opposed to a story in the Washington Post". I think the president is right about this, that the judge certainly has the right to defend himself, and to come forward with what he believes are the facts.

"I'm a pastor and I'm conservative, and so is Roy Moore, but I'm not dumb", he said.
