As the Alabama special election approaches, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney lashed out at the accused child molester on Twitter.
Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation. Leigh Corfman and other victims are courageous heroes. No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity.

Roy Moore struck back by shamelessly pandering to the President.
Either @MittRomney has lost his courage or he doesn’t care about truth anymore. Sad day!

Several weeks ago, The Washington Post published a bombshell report in which four women – a number that has since grown precipitously – stepped forward to accuse Roy Moore, at the time a District Attorney in his 30s, of engaging in sexual behavior while they were between the ages of 14- and 18-years-old. The story was corroborated by over 30 sources.
Today’s response by Moore is indicative of the Senate hopeful’s latest strategy of simply denying the legitimacy of every single woman who came forward against him. In his desperation to discredit his numerous accusers of sexual misconduct and pedophilia, Moore recently claimed at a campaign event that his victims are not to be trusted because real victims would never allow their faces to be seen in the news.
“I’ve represented many victims in cases such as this. I have not seen one who wanted her picture posted on national TV, especially in a political advertisement. The truth is, this is not really odd at all. It is simply dirty politics and it’s a sign of the immorality of our time,” Moore said.
To be clear, this is an accused child molester lecturing people about immoral behavior.
Moore is alleging that every single one of his accusers is lying because no true victim of sexual misconduct could possibly want “her picture posted on national TV.” In other words, he has decided that real sexual assault and rape victims are only found in the shadows and as soon as they speak up, their credibility is decimated. How convenient that would be for people like him.
Trump, for his part, in a move as shameful as it is unsurprising, endorsed the Republican Senate hopeful.
Putting Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Puppet Jones into office in Alabama would hurt our great Republican Agenda of low on taxes, tough on crime, strong on military and borders…& so much more. Look at your 401-k’s since Election. Highest Stock Market EVER! Jobs are roaring back!

While Roy Moore grandstands about “truth,” he would be well-served to follow his own advice and finally admit what any sensible American already accepts: this serial child molester and pedophile belongs in prison before the United States Senate.
