Republicans Still Think Roy Moore Is Senate Material Even Though He Is An Allegedly Sexual Predator

Putting your party’s interests above your nation’s is generally a sign that you’re unfit to govern. Yet one Republican legislator is openly admitting that’s what he intends to do.

A Republican member of Congress from Alabama says he still plans to vote for Roy Moore, the GOP candidate for the special election race to fill a vacant senate seat. Moore has been accused of sexually molesting and targeting teenage girls when he was in his early 30s.

Although Moore has denied the allegations, he hasn’t convinced several within his own party that he’s telling the truth. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said that he believes Moore should drop out of the race, and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said she’s not convinced by Moore’s denials.

“I did not find his denials to be convincing and believe that he should withdraw from the Senate race in Alabama,” Collins wrote on Twitter Monday.

Yet fellow Alabaman and Republican Rep. Mo Brooks chose a different approach, determining that the accusations didn’t matter to him — only passing a conservative agenda did.

In text messages sent to AL.com, Brooks explained that he couldn’t vote for Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate running opposite of Moore. Brooks derogatorily referred to Jones as a “socialist” in the text exchange.

Who will vote in America’s best interests on Supreme Court justices, deficit and debt, economic growth, border security, national defense, and the like? Socialist Democrat Doug Jones will vote wrong. Roy Moore will vote right. Hence, I will vote for Roy Moore

Brooks wouldn’t say whether he still endorsed Moore or not, a moot point really if you think about it, given that he says he’s voting for him. He also refused to say whether he believed the women accusing Moore of misconduct, although further statements imply that he doesn’t.

“I do believe this, there are millions of people in America who would lie in a heartbeat if it meant adding another Democrat to the Senate,” Brooks wrote. The primary accusers of Moore are Republican voters.

Moore is clearly a radical Republican. It was clear that he was the wrong choice for the Senate before these accusations came about, and it’s doubly clear that he’s still the wrong choice. Doug Jones, who as an attorney went after the KKK, would make a fine choice to represent Alabama’s interests in the U.S. Senate.

Yet Mo Brooks, who is only interested in furthering his political party’s interests, is willing to vote for an alleged sexual offender to do so, over someone much more qualified.
