Failed Senate candidate Roy Moore, who was accused of sexual misconduct by nine women, has decided that the time is ripe to throw his support to fellow accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“I think they need to take a stand. I think they need to do what their conscience dictates,” Moore said in an interview with One America News Wednesday. “They know what’s happening. It’s so obvious that these tactics are used just days before a very important event… before an election or a confirmation, and I think the Republicans need to take a stand. I think a lot of them don’t. They don’t like criticism.”
“I think they don’t care about transparency, they just use it because its effective,” he continued. “They know that on the one hand you offend women if you believe somebody that says they weren’t guilty of sexual misconduct. On the other hand, if you don’t believe them, you’re condemning the person accused of guilt to prove his own innocence. It’s a Catch-22.”
Moore’s Alabama Senate bid was ultimately sunk last December due to the mounting allegations, most from the 1970s and some from women who were teenagers when they say the much-older Moore sexually assaulted them.
Despite Moore’s denials, nearly every prominent Republican (except President Donald Trump, coincidentally) leapt from the sinking ship, and Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) snatched the seat.
