Just when you think the Republicans can’t do anything else to stoop lower they start defending and accepting pedophilia just to keep control of the Senate.
While many Republicans are urging Alabama voters to ignore the sexual misconduct allegations against GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore and vote for him anyway, others such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has demanded that he step aside.
However, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) announced this week he still plans to vote for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, even though she may believe the accusation against him.
Ivey told reporters: “I believe in the Republican Party, what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions. So that’s what I plan to do, vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore.”
She went on to explain that she has no reason to believe these women are lying about what Moore did to them all those years ago. Still, that will not deter her from supporting her party at the polls.
“I certainly have no reason to disbelieve any of them. The timing is a little curious. But at the same time, I have no reason to disbelieve them,” Ivey explained.
Initially, the Alabama Governor and die-hard Republican said that wouldn’t change her vote and would “hold [her] judgment until we get more of the facts” following allegations that Moore had a sexual encounter with a minor when he was in his 30s and the minor was 14.
At this point, five women have come forward to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct. Apparently, Moore was also banned from a mall for preying on young girls.
Despite the requests of some in his party, Moore says he will continue on the campaign trail.
