Roy Moore 'Seriously Considering' 2020 Senate Run, Claims 2017 'Was Stolen'

Roy Moore ‘Seriously Considering’ 2020 Senate Run, Claims 2017 ‘Was Stolen’

The Alabama Republican accused of sexual misconduct and assault argued he unfairly lost in 2017.

“I’m seriously considering it,” Moore said of another campaign, claiming he faced an unfair playing field against Democrat Doug Jones when the two faced off for the empty seat left by Jeff Sessions when he became President Donald Trump’s attorney general. Moore continued:

I think that [the 2017 race] was stolen. I think that’s been pronounced in the national newspapers ― The New York Times, The Washington Post even has recognized that there was a disinformation campaign going on in September of 2017 by forces outside of Alabama that spent a lot of money not regulated by the [Federal Election Commission] in trying to dissuade Republicans from voting and encourage and enrage Democrats.

Last December, The New York Times reported that a band of Democratic techies carried out a small-scale Russian-style deception campaign targeting Facebook and Twitter in an effort to help Jones. However, the experiment was said to have not made any meaningful impact. A similar story appeared in The Washington Post the following month.

In a separate case in January, the Times revealed a group of progressive Democrats had waged a disinformation campaign, like the one previously reported, on Facebook and Twitter. While the Times noted “it is hard to say for sure” that the attempted trickery had zero impact, the Twitter accounts involved had a limited reach.

Undeniably detrimental to Moore’s 2017 run were the handful of stories that emerged shortly before Election Day from women who claimed to have been pursued by him as teenagers when he was in his 30s.

1. It's times like this that I'm grateful that human beings have finite lifespans.

Otherwise, these cockroaches would never go the fuck away.

5. Roy Moore sucked as a lawyer and that's why he became a judge....

and he found that his particularly narrow and cruel version of fundyfuckhead Christianity played very well to the very conservative Alabama voting block. His whole Ten Commandments thing, which goes back to at least the 1990's when he put the first plaque on the wall of "his" courtroom, has struck a chord with those same Christian voters in that state such that they kept electing him to higher and higher courts.

His insistence, in spite of of well over a century of fact and judicial precedent to the contrary, that the laws of the United States are founded on Biblical (read: "old Testament" ) law is the main reason in my opinion that he has absolutely no business whatsoever being within 1000 yards of any position in the judiciary, much less any other elected office, local, state or otherwise.

Fuck Roy Moore with the horse he rode in on. Oh yeah...the one he clearly doesn't know how to ride;

(The part where he mounts and...::::ahem:::: rides away starts at the 1:05 mark)
