On Monday, AL.com published some shocking remarks from Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Alabama).
When asked about GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, Brooks said, “America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago.”
He continued, stating, “Who will vote in America’s best interests on Supreme Court justices, deficit and debt, economic growth, border security, national defense, and the like? Socialist Democrat Doug Jones will vote wrong. Roy Moore will vote right. Hence, I will vote for Roy Moore.”
Brooks then decided to bring up the Duke University lacrosse case.
“As a Duke grad, I vividly remember the false accusations against and defamation of the Duke lacrosse team. The players were horribly treated by the news media until the truth finally came out and totally exonerated them. As an attorney, I know accusations are easy. Proving them to the satisfaction of a judge, a jury, or here, voters, is another thing. I do not know enough of the evidence to know with confidence what the true facts are.”
GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore has been accused of sexual assault by multiple women, with one as young as 14 at the time of the incident.
