Judge Roy Moore avoids spotlight ahead of Alabama Senate vote

Roy-Moore

There are 1 comment on the Yahoo! story from 3 hrs ago, titled What If Roy Moore Was Black? "It's a disgusting new low that the President, the RNC, and the rest of the Republican Party are trying to help send a pedophile to the US Senate, and the American people won't soon forget it".

Voters on Tuesday can choose Moore or his Democratic opponent Doug Jones, a former federal prosecutor.

Mr Shah said the president and White House have made clear that the Moore allegations are "troubling and concerning" and "should be taken seriously".

US President Donald Trump has told the crowd at a campaign-style rally to "get out and vote for Roy Moore".

"We can not afford, the future of this country can not afford to lose the seat", Trump said referring to his party's narrow 52-48 advantage in the Senate.

On Friday, Beverly Young Nelson explained that she had added her own notes to an inscription and signature that she says Moore wrote in her yearbook in 1977, when she was 16 years old.

"We can not afford - this country, the future of this country, can not afford to lose a seat in the very, very close United States Senate".




Mr Moore, who is 70, has been dogged by multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including accusations that he molested two teenage girls and pursued romantic relationships with several others while in his 30s. We can't afford it, folks.

Moore has denied the allegations of sexual misconduct and called it a conspiracy by "lesbians, gays, bisexuals and socialists".

If Moore wins, Shelby said, the Senate will have to weigh his "fitness to serve".

Recent polls show Moore holds a lead over Jones.

As The Washington Post's Aaron Blake wrote at the time, it's possible Trump was hedging his bets against a Moore loss. "We can't afford to have a liberal Democrat who is completely controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer", he added, referring to the top Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate, respectively.

While Trump did not travel to Alabama to campaign for Moore ahead of Tuesday's election, Pensacola is near the Alabama border and feeds television markets in the state.
