Even though the vast majority of Americans are insisting that GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore drop out of the race amid sexual misconduct allegations from his past, Moore says he will continue on the campaign trail. Even House Speaker Paul Ryan has gone on the record to say that Moore’s accusers are “credible” and top Republicans such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Attorney General Jeff Sessions who have both suggested that Moore step aside. However, some Republicans can always be accounted for.
In fact, Rep. Mo Brooks said the news of Moore’s sexual allegation does not deter him one bit from continuing to support Moore all the way up until election day. Brooks says he still plans to vote for Moore in the Alabama Senate race because the GOP agenda is more important than child molestation, according to this Alabama lawmaker. Brooks told reporters: “America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago.”
He continued: “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.”
Thus far, at least four women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct. One claimed that Moore had sexual contact with her when she was as young as 14 and he was 32, according to The Washington Post. Nonetheless, Moore has denied the allegations and indicated he plans to stay in the Senate race. Brooks said his lawyer knows: “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.”
