Judge Roy Moore (R-AL) is tenacious, i’ll give him that.
The embattled GOP candidate is facing withering criticism from within and without his party and he still has the guts to stand up, deny the allegations against him, and take his party leadership to task for their attacks on him.
It’s a gutsy move.
In fact, Moore went one step further late this past week when he argued that Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) should step down for attempting to “steal” the election in Alabama away from the voters.
Like I said… gutsy.
Here’s what Moore had to say at a rally in Alabama on Thursday evening:
One thing I would like to see happen in our country is unity. I said I wanted to see unity. I never dreamed that I would succeed even before I got elected, but I have unified the Democrats and the Republicans in fighting against me, because they don’t want me there.
As you know, The Washington Post has brought scurrilous, false, charges –not charges, allegations– which I have emphatically denied time and time again. They are not only untrue, but they have no evidence to support them. Two of the speakers up here had words I caught. One said unsubstantiated, and another said unproven. Another said they were fake.
All of that is true.
The Washington Post is certainly not evidence.
What I want to do in this campaign is very simple: Get back to the issues which some are avoiding addressing…
This is an effort by Mitch McConnell and his cronies to steal this election from the people of Alabama, and they will not stand for it.
They overcame $30 million and voted me in the primary, and now they are trying a different tactic…
I’m gonna tell you who needs to step down — that is Mitch McConnell.
