Trump and RNC Back Roy Moore Senate Bid Despite Sex Abuse Accusations

Moore is set to face off with Democrat Doug Jones in a Dec. 12 special election to fill the Senate post once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

In an op-ed on his website, the Rev. Dwight McKissic of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas, said if Alabama voters elect Moore they are turning their backs on their teenage daughters. These appointees, from Vice President Pence to Schedule C employees in the agencies, are all playing a vital role in inhibiting President Trump's worst biases and instincts and providing important management to the executive branch that has significant authority over American life and America's future.

- Moore and Kayla began dating "early in the new year" of 1985, before marrying in December 1985.

The difference is that Donald Trump's party has now gone all-in with an accused child molester, after that particular depravity seemed like a deal-breaker 3 weeks ago.

"Let's leave my child out of this", Harlow cut in, talking over Porter, then repeated, "Let's leave my child out of this".

In response, Bannon contrasted Moore's Army service during the Vietnam War with Romney's work as a Mormon missionary in the late-1960s. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is backing away from his denunciations of the Alabama Republican. This is a perfect metaphor for these manbabies pretending to be grownups. He added that a Senate Ethics Committee investigation is still the smart move.

On Monday, Romney tweeted that "Roy Moore in the US [sic] Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation".

"It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones". Supporters of the judge - who has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with several underage girls - have also used the debate to frame Moore as a champion of protecting children. Publicly and privately, GOP leaders described the allegations against Moore as credible and insisted there were no circumstances under which he should serve in the Senate.

"That's the reason I volunteered to come down to speak for Judge Moore", Porter then continued.

While the RNC is working with Moore, the NRSC will continue to stay out of the Senate race, according to CNN host Jake Tapper.

In that same vein, longtime Alabama Senator Richard Shelby said Trump's endorsement didn't surprise him.

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon launched a scathing, personal attack on former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a stump speech for Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore Tuesday night. "No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!"

But the defeat of Republican Roy Moore will send a clear message that the caveman attitude of blaming the victim will not be tolerated by the public. That lends credibility to her allegation.
