(National Sentinel) Special Election: President Donald J. Trump has voiced his full support for GOP Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore ahead of a special election to be held Dec. 12 to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ old seat.
Trump tweeted several reasons for supporting Moore, including that his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, is a “puppet” of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer as well as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” Trump tweeted. “We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!”
Previously, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other GOP members of the Senate had called on Moore to drop out of the race after he became engulfed in a sexual harassment scandal last month.
The Washington Post reported that he attempted to date teenage girls when he was an adult. The paper also reported that Moore, then 32, kissed and fondled a 14-year-old, based on her account.
Moore defeated incumbent Sen. Luther Strange in a primary earlier this year.
Since Moore’s allegations surfaced, several allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate sexual behavior among many Democrats have surfaced as well.
Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., was accused by Los Angeles journalist Leeann Tweeden, a morning news anchor for TalkRadio 790 KABC, of kissing and groping her in 2006 without her consent as they returned from a USO event in the Middle East.
She also published a photo showing Franken appearing to grope her breasts. He has since been accused by an Army vet who claims he groped her in 2003.
Also, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has been accused by former staffers of sexually harassing and abusing them. Conyers has settled with some of the women using a special taxpayer-funded congressional account that few Americans knew existed before these scandals surfaced.
Neither man has expressed any interest in resigning.
