Roy Moore, Shopping Mall Romeo

Roy Moore, Shopping Mall Romeo

Roy Moore, defrocked judge and gun-slingingtheocraticracist homophobe, is currently the Republican candidate for Jeff Sessions’ old U.S. Senate seat. He’s also been accused of sexually molesting teenage girls when he was a 32 year old assistant district attorney. Five women have come forward so far. He was a persistent creep, hitting on teenybopper shoppers, waitresses and clerks, and was finally banned from the Gadsden Mall. As Jennifer Rubin points out, if Roy Moore can be banned from a shopping mall, he can be kept out of the U.S. Senate. Most Americans, the RNC, and Republican leaders agree, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is preparing for that possibility.

The Alabama Special Election is on December 12th.
