Less Moore In ’18

It felt very good to show 2017 the door,
Though maintaining optimism remains a chore.
But trepidatiously looking ahead,
One certainty can be said —
At least we don’t have to listen to Roy Moore no more.

Alabama’s Turning Purple

50% to 45%

Alan Abramowitz: “When Alabama voters were asked which party they would prefer to control the Senate, 50% chose Republicans while 45% chose Democrats. That is a stunning result — perhaps even more stunning than Jones’s victory. Moreover, only 43% had a favorable opinion of the Republican Party while 47% had a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party.”

Alabama Cities and ‘Burbs Rejected Moore

68%

New York Times: “Voters in Alabama’s cities and most affluent suburbs overwhelmingly rejected Mr. Moore’s candidacy, an ominous sign for Republicans on the ballot next year in upscale districts. In Jefferson County, which includes Birmingham and some of the state’s wealthiest enclaves, Mr. Jones, the Democratic candidate, captured more than 68% of the vote. And in Madison County, home to Huntsville and a large NASA facility, Mr. Jones won 57 percent of the vote.”

Former Breitbart Spox Attributes Moore Loss to Free Press

“Let’s not forget that this race was competitive in the first place because of the diligence, competence and tenacity of some enterprising reporters at the Washington Post and the Birmingham News (among others). What happened tonight illustrates how impactful and important the free press is in our political process. No matter how much noise there is about the ‘fake news’ media, the fact remains that the frontline of defense for our Republic begins and ends with the ability to pursue the truth and tell it…”

— Kurt Bardella, who used to rep Breitbart and has become an outspoken critic of Bannon and the site, in an email to CNN’s Brian Stelter.

If Moore Is Elected, Senate has to Seat Him

“If he is elected, there are no grounds under the Constitution to fail to seat him. The Constitution says you can only look at citizenship, whether they are a resident of the state, and if they are the proper age. So we have to seat him.”

— Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), quoted by CNN, on whether the U.S. Senate would refuse to seat Roy Moore (R) if he wins Alabama’s special election.

Alabama Accuser Attacks Moore in Letter

“What you did to me when I was 14-years old should be revolting to every person of good morals. But now you are attacking my honesty and integrity. Where does your immorality end?”

Moore Regains Lead in Alabama

49% to 44%

A new Change Research survey in Alabama finds Roy Moore (R) has regained his lead over Doug Jones (D) in the U.S. Senate race, 49% to 44%. “What has changed? The largest difference is turnout: many Republicans who ten days ago said they might not vote, now say they plan to show up on Election Day and vote for Moore.” Also important: “Compared to ten days ago, fewer Republicans believe the allegations against Moore. While all voters believed the allegations by a 46–30 margin ten days ago, they now believe them by only 42–38. Among Trump voters, the split was 16–51 (believe-don’t believe) in the middle of the month, and it’s 9–63 now.”

Alabama Police Told to Keep Moore Away from Young Women

“We were advised that he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores and, you know, really got into a place of where they say he was harassing.”

— Former Gadsden police officer Faye Gary, a retired Alabama police officer, said police were told in the 1970s to make sure now-GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore stayed away from high school cheerleaders because the “rumor mill was that he liked young girls,” The Hill reports.

Wagers of Sin

Ten Alabama pastors have come to the defense of Roy Moore,
Condemning the “War on Men” perpetrated by hussies and whores.
If you accuse them of hypocrisy,
They’ll accuse YOU of apostasy.
Defending creeps and Jesus — that’s what Alabama pastors are for!

Alabama Pastors Stand by Moore

10

Boston Globe: “None of the nearly 10 pastors reached by phone said the allegations of sexual misconduct changed their views about Moore. Several said the allegations made them more proud to vote for the former judge.” Said pastor Earl Wise: “I don’t know how much these women are getting paid, but I can only believe they’re getting a healthy sum.” … “Wise said he would support Moore even if the allegations were true and the candidate was proved to have sexually molested teenage girls and women.”
