There are some on social media calling on the GOP to replace Roy Moore on the ballot following a bombshell report that he sexually assaulted a teenager in 1979. Here’s the thing. They can’t. There’s nothing they or anyone can do to remove Roy Moore from the ballot as the Republican nominee.
Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.
It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.
“He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”
Alabama law requires names be withdrawn from a ballot at least 76 days before election day. The special election is scheduled for December 12. The GOP can withdraw his nomination, but that would only mean he couldn’t win. His name will still represent the party on the ballot.
They only have three choices:
- Stick with Moore and hope the allegations are debunked
- Push Luther Strange or someone else as a write-in candidate
- Abandon the seat to the Democrats
None of the options are great for Republicans. Currently, they have a razor-thin edge in the Senate with 52 seats. Losing the seat once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and currently occupied by Strange would leave no room for error if they intend to pass anything before 2019.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
