Creepy old uncle Roy files for U.S. Senate primary

Disgraced former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore is officially in the U.S. Senate primary.

There are two people who could lose to Doug Jones in the 2020 General Election. Me, and Roy Moore.

Since I’m not running, that leaves Moore.

Anybody but Roy Moore could beat Jones. Jones’ pathetic posturing as an independent thinker has fooled no one. His vote against Justice Brett Kavanaugh last year showed him to be a lockstep Democrat vote on anything of substance coming to a floor vote in the U.S. Senate. A vote for Doug Jones is a vote for Dick Schumer’s radical, leftwing progressive agenda.

A vote for Roy Moore in the Senate Primary next March is a vote for a man who was twice removed from the Alabama Supreme Court. He was removed both times for cause, meaning that after due process of law he was found to have violated his oath of office and had engaged of conduct unbecoming of a Supreme Court Justice.

Not just once—which could be reasonably explained as a misinterpretation of statute or precedence. But twice. Both times he was removed by members of his own judicial and philosophical schools of thought. People of his own kind thought him unfit for office. It's like a bunch of alcoholics expelling a member of their own group of drunks for drinking too much.

Just for clarity's sake: Alabama conservatives removed Roy Moore from office after due process of law. Twice.

A vote for Roy Moore is also a vote for a man who was credibly accused of sexual assault by three different women. None of these women knew each other from Adam’s Housecat, and all three of them independently described being all but forcibly raped by Moore. Two of them were minors, claiming to be 14 and 16 years old at the time of their encounter with Moore.

One accuser can be reasonably explained as a politically motivated smear. Two would be enough for concern. Three would be enough for any reasonable voter to conclude that some other conservative is worthy of their mark on the ballot.

A victory for Roy Moore next March all but guarantees that Doug Jones is reelected next November.

Please, Alabama. Don’t do this again.
