Republicans are calling for Roy Moore to step down after allegations he pursued a 14-year-old girl.
RINO Senator John McCain (R-AZ) says the allegations that Moore pursued sex with underage girls are enough for him to drop out of theAlabama Senate race.
Other Republicans have not gone as far as McCain, but Mitch McConnell said that if the allegations are true, Moore has to drop out…
“If these allegations are true, he must step aside.”
The National Republican Senatorial Committee also said that if the allegations are true, Moore has to drop out of the race.
Within an hour of the Washington Post dropping its bombshell report that alleges Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore initiated a sexual encounter with a 14 year old when he was in his 30s, lawmakers within his own party were calling on him to step down from the race.
As of Thursday afternoon, at least nine Republican Senators called on Moore to step aside, and that number was rapidly growing. Those calling on Moore to leave the race included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had backed Moore’s primary opponent, Senator Luther Strange, and Colorado Senator Cory Gardener, who is chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
But there’s a catch if this happens. According to Alabama state law, it is too late to remove Moore’s name from the ballot should he or the GOP withdraw his name. Moore’s name will consequently remain on the ballot either way. But if he wins despite withdrawing his name, the election would be voided.
Here is the statement from John McCain…
The Moore campaign responded to the allegations of sexual misconduct by saying its all fake news
Greg Gutfeld from Fox News’ The Five proclaims…“It’s raining ban men.”
It seems that ‘sexual assault is the new black.’
The Moore campaign calls sex allegations a ‘political attack’, as four women have accused Moore of pursuing them when they were teenagers.
Sex allegations from 40 years ago is a tough one to call either way. It’s a terrible act if true, and a number one political weapon if false.
