Skip to comments.WH On Moore Report: ‘That Hypothetical Would Be Disqualifying For Anyone’ (Kellyanne Conway)
Posted on 11/09/2017 3:18:53 PM PST by Colonel Kangaroo
White House aide Kellyanne Conway said Thursday that allegations against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore made in the Washington Post would be disqualifying for anyone in public office.
We need to listen to both sides, but at the same time, that hypothetical would be disqualifying for anyone in public office, Conway said, in a clip aired on MSNBC.
The Post reported the stories of four women who said Moore pursued relationships with them as a grown man when they were teenagers. In one case, a 32-year-old Moore took then-14-year-old Leigh Corfman to his house, undressing her before initiating sexual contact.
She remembers that Moore kissed her, that he took off her pants and shirt, and that he touched her through her bra and underpants. She says that he guided her hand to his underwear and that she yanked her hand back, the Post reported.
The White Houses director of legislative affairs, Marc Short, said on CNN later Thursday that theres no path forward for Moore if the Posts reporting is accurate.
Thats a big If clause, Wolf, it certainly is, but yes, he told CNNs Wolf Blitzer.
But, pressed on how Alabama voters should determine the veracity of the allegations which the Post reported after interviews with more than 30 sources Short had few specific ideas.
I think that the voters of Alabama deserve to know the truth and I think the voters of Alabama will demand more information, more facts to figure this out, he said.
Some GOP leaders have called on Moore to drop out of the race to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions former Senate seat still, other Alabama officials have dismissed the Posts reporting and defended Moore.
The wagons have circled. The GOP is looking for the nearest bus.
To throw Moore under.
Oh well. What’s one less Senate seat?
Why, after all this time, do these “women” wait to bring this up now?? This report is trash ....
TPM is Soros’ TALKING POINTS MEMO.
Ditch Mitch for being a pervert in likely making up stories to get rid of a self identified enemy.
how have the wagons circled?? Conway’s response is right on...
Then it should NEVER be allowed on FR to post as a source. SIDE EYES OP.
Funny how these so called allegations have never surfaced before, in Roy Moore’s decades long public service career....isn’t it?
So an accusation is all it takes. They do seem to be all too ready to lynch Moore.
They’re in process of doing this to Trump.
We’re on the edge of civil war when our votes don’t matter.
Still 17 sealed indictments
McCain and McConnell has already called for Moore to step down. And in fact no one from the GOP has (or will) step up to defend Moore.
He’s a gonner.
Maybe I’m missing something, but it seems like the most obvious venue for charges like this to come out would be in the disciplinary proceedings when he was being suspended and removed from the bench as a state judge.
Didn’t he get chased out of the Girls Locker Room at the Junior High School near his House? or was it the Boys Locker room?
I did not know that was Soros's outfit. I apologize for using a Soros site. But regardless of the source, that was President Trump's Kellyanne Conway speaking.
Did the GOP dig this up? Or was it someone else?
Just like the hypothetical that Trump is a Russian spy.
Produce the alleged victim(s) and polygraph her(them).
Names, financial history, political affiliation, criminal records, etc.
The Washington Post and Amazon.com are domestic enemy and need to be dealt with as such.
