Roy Moore, the Republican Party’s senate candidate in Alabama, went to Steve Bannon’s Breitbart in an attempt to head off accusations of child molestation that are now surfacing.
Moore has been an icon of the conservative movement for years. He has beat the drum in opposition to marriage equality between consenting adults, claiming it would lead to “multiple marriages” or possibly “marriages between men and their daughters or women and their sons.”
Moore now stands accused of child molestation, and has been caught desperately trying to get his conservative allies to cover up the bombshell news story for him.
An email inquiry from a Washington Post reporter was forwarded to Breitbart, which quickly put together a story defending Moore. The right-wing propaganda site positioned the serious allegations against Moore as coming after the Post’s editorial board endorsed Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate.
But the effort is likely to backfire, and underlines the seriousness of the claims against Moore.
Moore should be arrested and when convicted, imprisoned to the fullest extent of the law. The vile hypocrite, traipsing around the country pretending to be Godly with his 10 Commandments crusade. Vile and disgusting wretch.
