GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore has been accused of sexual harassment. However, it smells like a pile of BS to me!
It just so happens that the Christian, gun-loving candidate beat out the GOP establishment candidate and pulled ahead of the Democratic candidate in the polls. Then, BOOM! The “America First” man was suddenly slapped with sexual harassment accusations from 1979!!
Here’s the real kicker, one of the women accusing him worked for Hillary Clinton’s campaign! Fishy, or nah?
This sounds just like Trump’s campaign, when he was accused of sexual harassment by several women who turned out to be lying. Hmm…
Now Senator Cory Gardner is calling for Moore to be expelled if he wins the Senate seat.
Gardner said, “I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office.”
“If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate,” he added.
Gardner’s statement came hours after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he believed the women making accusations against Moore and the candidate should step aside.Under the Senate rules, a vote of two-thirds of the body can expel a senator. That would be historic — the Senate hasn’t expelled a member since 1862.
Gardner’s words go further than his initial condemnation of Moore in the immediate aftermath of The Washington Post’s report on Thursday when a woman named Leigh Corfman claimed Moore had a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 years old and he was 32.
Senate Republicans cannot get Moore’s name off the ballot for next month’s election.
Even if he withdraws or is dumped by the state party, his name will still appear on the ballot. If he won in either of those cases, however, he would not be eligible for the seat by state law.
Moore has given no signal that he will step down, and the state party has shown no interest in forcing his hand.
As a result, it seems likely that Moore will remain on the ballot. If he wins, the Senate would be faced with the question of whether to seat him or expel him from office immediately.
