On Wednesday, Senator John Kennedy (R-La.) appeared on CNN’s “New Day.”
Kennedy spoke about the uphill battle controversial GOP Senate Candidate Roy Moore will face if he is elected.
“If Mr. Moore is elected, he will be seated. Under the law, he has to be. There then be…somebody’s going to file an ethics complaint. That’s just a fact. And then there’s going to be a full-fledged investigation. People are going to be talked to under oath. We will get the facts and then the Senate will get to vote,” he said.
Kennedy added, “My point of view is, if a candidate who is in his thirties took out a 14-year-old girl, undressed her, fondled her, asked her to fondle him, that’s a crime. Then he’s not qualified to be a United States Senator.”
Kennedy was then asked who he would like to see win the Alabama Senate race.
“Well, what I want is someone who backs America. Now, who did what to whom, I don’t know. If this gets this far to an ethics committee, I would like to hear Mr. Moore under oath, and I’d like to talk to the witnesses.”
According to The Hill, “Polls show Moore trailing his opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, slightly in the special election to determine Alabama’s next senator.”
