State Auditor Jim Zielgler Invokes Bible to Defend Roy Moore

Alabama official uses Bible to condone sexual misconduct

The White House said Trump believes Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore "will do the right thing and step aside" if sexual misconduct allegations against him are true. But not always. And given Romney's past, and his penchant for running down politicians who buck the party tide, his willingness to practically call for Moore's head on a platter also seems rather politically pandering - an easy way for the good ex-guvnah to get back in the political game again. And when I say "serve alongside", I mean that literally. (The seat is now filled by Luther Strange, who was appointed interim senator after Jeff Sessions was picked to be President Trump's attorney general.) Seven senators sit in the immediate vicinity, either in front, behind, or directly next to the seat.

Moore, a former Alabama Supreme Court chief judge twice removed from office, has denied the charges. And it's also possible that after some initial discomfort, an very bad lot of Alabama Republicans will find their way clear to voting for Moore anyway, particularly if he and his defenders continue to hang tough. "Facts? Or are we peddling gossip?" the Alabama Republican exclaimed. The group had been part of a fundraising committee that includes the Alabama Republican party and the Republican National Committee. Disgraced House speaker Denny Hastert got convicted for abuse that didn't come to light for decades, recall, but also note that there have been false allegations of sexual abuse in politics, too.

Moore's initially denied the allegations in their entirety but he was far more equivocating with Hannity.

If, however, the state party tells election officials that it wants to withdraw its nominee, or if Moore himself made a decision to do so, election officials would not certify any votes cast for Moore. National liberal organizations know their chosen candidate Doug Jones is in a death spiral, and this is their last ditch Hail Mary'.

That view was shared by Scott Reed, a political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who opposed Moore's nomination.

"Right now there is a lot of accusations being made against a lot of people", said Randall Mccaffrey.

A woman alleged that Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32, according to The Washington Post.

Asked to clarify if Blunt was canceling on the fundraiser, she repeated, "He won't be in AL". If that happens, McConnell and other Republicans would face the challenge of figuring out which candidate would run in Moore's place - and how to win an election in which it is too late to replace the former judge's name on the December 12 ballot. John McCain, R-Ariz., in calling for Moore to step down immediately. She described meeting Moore, who was then an assistant district attorney, at the courthouse in Etowah County, Ala., where he offered to watch her while her mother attended a custody hearing. The legal age of consent in Alabama is and was at the time 16.

Reynolds says the timing of the allegations in a report from The Washington Post is too coincidental, with only a month left in the campaign.

"You understand this is 40 years ago and after the military, and I dated a number of young ladies", Moore said of the possibility of going on dates with other young women.
