McConnell: Moore should step down if allegations true
The Hill ^ | 11/09/2017 | Ben Kamisar

Senate Republican leadership is calling for Alabama GOP candidate Roy Moore to step down as the party's nominee if new allegations of his inappropriate sexual conduct against a 14-year old girl in 1979 are true.

Both Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and National Republican Senatorial Committee chairman Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) released brief statements on Thursday, shortly after The Washington Post published the allegations.

"If these allegations are true, he must step aside," McConnell said.

Gardner's statement echoed that from McConnell.

“The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling,” he said. “If these allegations are found to be true, Roy Moore must drop out of the Alabama special Senate election.”

McConnell’s a weasel. We saw this coming the minute the claims started gaining momentum in hollywood. If anything, the charges, right out of the corrupt democrat playbook, should increase Judge Moore’s support. Gillespie’s loss, which may be partly attributable to similar slander from the democrat party, should be a teachable moment for McConnell, but he’s too entrenched in the corruption of the GOPe to care.

As quickly as they are tossing Moore under the bus one has to wonder if the Senate GOP leadership played a part in all this.

The lilywhite hands of Mitch McConnell would never sully themselves in such a manner. /s

Nearly 40 years ago and not a peep when Moore was a judge?

I say lie.
