As the race to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions vacated Senate seat in Alabama draws to a conclusion, one GOP representative slammed Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore Monday as an “abomination.”
Will Hurd (R-Texas) denounced Moore during a Monday interview on liberal-leaning MSNBC show “Morning Joe,” saying Moore is an “abomination to the Republican Party.”
“I disagree with President Trump on a recent thing: Roy Moore,” Hurd said. “I think Roy Moore is an abomination to the Republican Party, and that’s one thing Republicans and Democrats agree on … the American people deserve better.”
On Tuesday, voters in Alabama will decide if Moore can be trusted after he was accused of multiple instances of sexual misconduct associated with the wooing of, engagement with, or assault of young girls in Alabama, all stemming from when the now 70-year-old Moore was in his 30s.
President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Moore, after initially supporting Moore’s rival, Luther Strange, in the primary runoff earlier this year. Despite the allegations against Moore, Trump said some consideration had to be given to Moore, who denied the allegations against him. Trump also said that Moore’s rival in Tuesday’s election, Doug Jones (D), is a liberal “puppet” who would be a dangerous addition to the Senate body.
During a Florida campaign rally Friday night (strategically held near the Alabama border), Trump urged voters to pick Moore and has since recorded a robocall in support of the Republican candidate.
Other GOP lawmakers and officials have denounced Moore, and say that if he is elected, an ethics investigation should be launched into the allegations. But the Republican National Committee (RNC) reinstated its support of Moore when Trump offered his endorsement, after initially withdrawing support due to the allegations.
One of Moore’s accusers, Beverly Young Nelson, admitted Friday that the evidence she’d brought out against Moore – to prove she’d known him at the time she claims he assaulted her – had been fabricated. Nelson admitted that a portion of the high school yearbook message, which she’d previously claimed was written by Moore and proved her story, had been added by her own hand, in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
However, the bombshell admission was downplayed by the mainstream media when she indicated her additions to the text were mere “notes.”
