VIDEO: Cowardly GOP Politicians Hide Behind “If True” in Response to Reports Roy Moore Sexually Molested Young Girl

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported Roy Moore, the former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court now running for Senate, sexually molested an underage girl when he was in his 30s and pursued several others. Four women went on the record with stories of Moore making sexual advances on them when they were between the ages of 14 and 18, and more than 30 other people who knew Moore between 1977 and 1982 were interviewed.

Still, Republicans from around the country, including Leader Mitch McConnell, and White House officials, would only say Moore should step down “if these stories are true.” So what exactly would the GOP need to believe these women’s stories?

“Hiding behind “if true” is a disgraceful and gutless response to the serious reports of Roy Moore’s sexual assaults,” said American Bridge spokesperson Allison Teixeira Sulier. “Republicans are showing their true colors once again by enabling a sexual predator in […]

Reality Check: The GOP Owns Roy Moore

Less than two weeks ago Senate Republicans – from leader McConnell and NRSC Chair Gardner down to rank and file members Rand Paul and Mike Lee – welcomed Roy Moore to the GOP with open arms. They held a high dollar fundraiser for him, which Senator Cornyn personally attended. They entered into a joint fundraising agreement with his campaign. And they hosted him at the weekly caucus lunch because for the GOP, nothing matters more than securing votes to cut taxes for the rich.

“Republicans own Roy Moore, his toxic beliefs, and his history of preying on underage women. Voters are going to hold the GOP accountable for propping up such a dangerous individual; this man should be serving in prison, not in the Senate,” said Shripal Shah, Vice President of American Bridge

The evidence is piling up against corrupt Roy Moore’s foundation

“It’s more clear now than ever that disgraced ex-judge Roy Moore’s Foundation for Moral Law has nothing to do with morality or the law, but is just a slush fund for himself and his family,” said American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp. “He’s used the foundation to pay himself over $1 million and provide kickbacks to family members. Roy Moore isn’t looking out for Alabamians — he’s looking out for himself, and no one else.”
