The two big losers in yesterday Alabama Senate election are Roy Moore and Steve Bannon. The start of the down fall for Roy Moore has the Hannity interview. His lack of direct answer and changing his mind during the interview was beginning of his flawed cover up. Then his statement that he would not date a girl without their mother’s approval was over the top.
Roy Moore stating “I don’t remember dating any girl without the permission of her mother,” he said. He later pointed to The Post’s story and said, “These two young girls actually said their mothers encouraged them to be friends with me.”
After a commercial break, Moore became more forceful in his denials of dating teenagers. He said doing so “would be out of my customary behavior” and that he “never” would have dated a teen without her mother’s permission.
I don’t know of any mother that would let their teenage daughter date an adult.
Roy Moore was the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court from 2013 to 2017 and is famous for ordering probate judges to ignore the Supreme Court’s ruling allowing same-sex marriages nationally. In 2002 and 2003, he fought to keep a Ten Commandments monument at the Alabama Supreme Court building during his first tenure as Chief Justice. He was eventually removed from office in November 2003.
Roy Moore was run for Governor of Alabama in 2006 and 2010 and loss.
Roy Moore has lost credibility after being removed from office twice for ethics. Now the woman accusing him of sexual harassment has made him a flawed candidate.
This questions the wisdom of Steve Bannon backing of Roy Moore. Bannon stating he wanted to back strong candidates to take on the Republic establishment to further the Trump agenda. He backed a flawed candidate losing a vital republican seat and maybe jeopardizing the Trump agenda.
