Accused child molester and failed Senate candidate Roy Moore is mulling throwing his hat back into the political ring.

During an interview with “Focal Point” on American Family Radio Friday, Moore told the host Bryan Fischer that he felt his chances were “stolen” from him when he ran for former Attorney General Jeff Sessions vacated Alabama Senate seat in 2017. Moore lost the election after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct when they were teens and he was in his thirties, putting a Democrat, Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in the Senate in the ruby red state for the first time in 25 years.

“I’m seriously considering it. I think that [the 2017 Senate race] was stolen,” Moore said.
