    McConnell on Moore: 'I believe the women'

    Epic.

    With Moore's credibility stumbling after he seemingly admitted his past of dating underage girls whilst in his 30's, the Republican tide of newfound decency seems to be rolling in.

    This time with the Senate leader himself saying he believes the women in the matter, and that Moore should drop out.

    It is odd that this fellow, whom I have long considered to be batshit crazy and a dangerous Christ cult exterminate in regards to his views, is suddenly being found to be persona non grata among the establishment GOP, even if it means flipping the Senate to a more left leaning view.

    Congrats those on the right willing to call out borderline pedophiles in their midst.

    McConnell on Moore: 'I believe the women' - CNNPolitics

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell believes the allegations against Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore and that Moore should leave the race, the Kentucky Republican said Monday.

    "I believe the women, yes," McConnell told reporters in Kentucky.


    McConnell, the Senate's top Republican and a frequent target of Moore on the campaign trail, said, "I think he should step aside."

    The GOP is growing their base. McConnell should be thrilled.

    Well those are nice "words" but the RNC is still on the ground helping Moore with his campaign.



    One after another, prominent Republicans are bailing on Roy Moore.

    They’re calling for the Alabama Senate candidate, who’s accused of behaving inappropriately years ago with teenage girls, to withdraw from the race or be barred from serving if he wins.

    But the Republican National Committee remains in Moore’s corner — at least for now.

    About a dozen national party staffers are on the ground in Alabama, handling field organizing duties for next month’s special election between Moore and Democratic nominee Doug Jones, an RNC official told BuzzFeed News. A spokesperson declined to comment when asked if the RNC’s investment was being reevaluated in light of another woman coming forward to accuse Moore of sexually assaulting her in 1977, when she was 16. She is the second woman in recent days to say Moore initiated an unwanted sexual encounter when she was a teen. Moore has denied any wrongdoing.

    This is about the party holding a senate seat. If worse came to worse, the GOP could back Moore and remove him after beating his Democratic opponent. If I'm not mistaken, the Governor could appoint another republican.

    "Vote for our scumbag and we promise we'll replace him" is a very risky and dangerous campaign slogan.

    Before you get all misty-eyed, I suggest this has fuck all to do with any sense of outrage McConnell has towards sexual harassers. It's just not believable.

    OTOH, McConnell might well view this guy as vulnerable and have reasons of his own to try to kill his political career. Plus, there's very little downside as regards McConnell's popularity.

    Condemning the most loathsome politician in America after Trump is hardly a courageous act.

    Still, every little bit helps.

    Agreed, but it allows the Republican Party to use the pro-Moore voting bloc to hold the seat first and foremost. The GOP leadership may feel that's a better alternative than handing the democrats another vote in the Senate.
