Doug Jones: Al Franken should quit for good of the country

Mitt Romney in 2016

The fact is, if Moore wins in Alabama, Republicans in Washington will have several options to minimize the impact of his damaging presence until 2020.

According to an examination of court documents and Moore's own statements, there seems to be an overlap in the Alabama senate candidate's courtship of then-Kayla Kisor and her marriage to her former husband, Chuck Heald.

Sure, not all of them are child molesters (as far as we know), but this Roy Moore saga is proof that abusing a child is not a disqualifying trait for holding Republican office-so at minimum, the Republican Party are child molester sympathizers.

Janet Porter defended the controversial candidate Tuesday, blasting his accusers as President Trump and Republicans rallied behind Moore in the waning days leading up to the state's special election.

Some extensive muckraking by the good folks over at the Washington Examiner revealed that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore may have started dating his now-wife when she was still married to her former husband. Moore's campaign has since asked to see the yearbook and get it tested by an independent expert, but Nelson's lawyer refused the request.

The former federal prosecutor also said he believed that the many women who came forward to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct and assault were telling the truth. He noted that Moore graduated from the United States Military Academy, while Romney received a draft deferment for his missionary work in France.

If elected, Moore would "immediately" be subjected to an ethics committee investigation, McConnell pledged. "Again, it's still up to the people of Alabama to decide".

At least person has been killed and thousands have been forced to evacuate by raging wildfires in southern California.

When you're dealing with a story that involves rape or harassment or abuse or molestation or child porn or anything that falls under the rubric of criminal behavior, you should call those things rape and harassment and abuse and molestation and child pornography.

In his speech, Bannon also attacked other GOP figures who have been critical of Moore, including Arizona Senator Jeff Flake and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. A lot of NRSC donors will withhold support if they think any of their money is going to support a Roy Moore campaign.

Bannon spoke hours after the Republican National Committee transferred $170,000 to the Alabama Republican Party to bolster Moore's campaign.

The church, the representative told WHNT, has since removed the sign and noted that their pastor had nothing to do with the message.

"[Bannon] clearly has no idea what it's like to serve on a two-year LDS mission in a far-away land", he said.

Regarding the allegations, Chen added that some people don't believe the women because they don't want to. Moore has denied all wrongdoing. The Republican Party has a deep insecurity that cuts to the very question of their humanity. That lends credibility to her allegation.
