Apparently, the politicians from both Parties have found a mutual subject to work on attacking Roy Moore the Alabama Senate candidate.
Moore recently won over the establishment candidate in the primary election to become GOP nominee for the empty Senate seat that was vacated after Jeff Session became the attorney general.
Only one month before the special election Roy Moore was accused of sexual misconduct of a minor, years ago when he was 32 and the woman was only 14.
Republicans, such John Kasich and Mitt Romney, immediately called for Moore to drop out of the race, even though the allegations haven’t been proved and Moore denied them.
But Moore is not going down so easily, he is fighting back.
The candidate announced that we will be suing The Washington Post for publishing the article against him, and made it clear that it clear that the claims were a lie.
“So about 30 days before the general election, just the other day, the Washington Post published another attack on my character and reputation because they are desperate to stop my political campaign,” Moore stated on Sunday.
“These attacks said I was with a minor child and are false and untrue — and for which they will be sued,” he said.
Moore noted that he has been devoted husband for decades, and also been in the spotlight, so he is questioning the motivation and timing of the allegations.
“I’ve been married 32 years so far, it will be 33 in a few weeks. We have four children. I have a daughter. I have five granddaughters. I have the highest regard for the protection of young ladies,” Moore said.
“These allegations come only four weeks—30 days, about—before the general election. Why now?” Moore asked.
“For 40 years I’ve been so scrutinized in the press, investigated by the attorney general at one time years ago, investigated by the Judicial Inquiry Commission of the Court of the Judiciary. I’ve run five statewide campaigns, every one of them hotly contested,” he continued.
“To think that these charges come just 30 days prior to the general election is incomprehensible,” the people applauded this statement.
Moore pushed back against Republicans like Kasich and Romney, who said that “innocent until proven guilty” doesn’t apply here.
“(T)here are groups that don’t want me in the United States Senate,” Moore said.
“There’s the Democratic Party, they don’t want to see me in the United States Senate. There’s the Republican establishment, which has spent over $30 million to keep me out of the United States Senate. You put them together, and they realize my opponent is 11 points behind. They’re desperate.”
