Skip to comments.Moore: McConnell is one who should step aside
Posted on 11/13/2017 10:13:48 AM PST by BradtotheBone
Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore responded to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) call for Moore to "step aside," saying that McConnell is the one who should do so.
"The person who should step aside is [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell. He has failed conservatives and must be replaced," Moore tweeted on Monday.
His tweet comes after McConnell said on Monday that Moore should withdraw from the race.
Several conservative leaders have called for Moore to step down following allegations that he engaged in sexual encounters with teenagers in the past, including one 14-year-old girl who alleged that he kissed and touched her sexually when he was 32.
McConnell originally said that Moore should step aside if these allegations are true, a sentiment echoed by other GOP senators. But when asked Monday about the allegations, McConnell said, "I believe the women."
Moore has denied the accusations and threatened to sue The Washington Post, which published the original report detailing the allegations. He has told his supporters that he plans to remain in the race.

This guy fights. I like that.
Bannon going to kick his ass
Moore will win the election.
Let’s see if the Turtle has enough cajones to deny him a seat.
Moore needs to use the term “collusion”.
Amen Brother Roy Moore.
McConnell is the one who should step down, long ago.
Go, Moore, GO!!
I could not agree Moore. That POS McConnell is the one who needs to step down.
“...Several conservative leaders have called for Moore to step down...”
Several so-called “republicans” have called for him to step down, but I know of NO “conservatives” who have asked that...
McConnell supported Moore’s opponent because the global socialists are in a panic.
They are desperately trying to maintain their grip on power by any means necessary.
(McConnell said, “I believe the women.”)
This one utterance just disqualified McConnell to have any sort of leadership position within the GOP. So much for innocent until proven guilty...and look at the relevant actors on the other side: the Washington ComPost, Allred, etc? Yeah, let’s believe those ultra-partisan smear merchants over any conservative or Christian, right McConnell?
Perhaps McConnell can share his new found proof with the rest of the world
All the Democrats in R jerseys should resign.
The first ten voted to give away the country with Rubios amnesty.
Alexander, Corker, Flake, Graham, Hatch, Heller, Hoeven, Murkowsky, McCain, Rubio, Gardner, Burr, Tillis, Portman, McConnell, Thune, Cornyn, Cochran, Isackson, Blunt, Johnson, Toomey, Capito, Rounds, Fischer, Collins, Wicker, Sasse, Ernst, Lankford, Young, Boozman and Shelby are all undocumented Democrats in R jerseys.
Well, that’s another issue that I agree with Judge Moore, he would get my vote!
Go, Judge Moore!
I sent Moore $
Folks, he needs us.
