For weeks, Mitch McConnell called for Roy Moore to step down from his candidacy for the Senate in Alabama. McConnell made it clear that he did not support anyone for the Senate who had allegations of pedophilia pending against them. He made progressives actually question their hatred of him when he seemed to put people over party for once. However, today was a whole new story. Suddenly, McConnell doesn’t much care about those allegations against the pistol-toting Alabama judge.
On ABC this morning, he told George Stephanopoulos on This Week,
I’m gonna let the people of Alabama make the call. This election’s been going on a long time, there’s a lot of discussion about it. They’re gonna make the decision a week from Tuesday.
When asked about investigating those sexual allegations if Moore is elected, McConnell said he would let an ethics commission investigate. Wow. Way to be reactive and cost the American taxpayers more money, Mitch. Why not take the proactive route and tell the perv that he just cannot represent decent American citizens?
What he really meant to say was that he needs a Republican in that seat, and it’s too big of a pain in the ass to find another candidate at this point in time. Can you smell the desperation in the air?
