Choice for Alabama US Senate Seat – The Democrat or the Child Molester

Going to get interesting December 2nd in Alabama where a special election to fill Jefferson Davis Sessions old seat has come down to a runoff between a Democrat Doug Jones, and Republican Holier Than Thou Accused Child Molester.

The problem?

Moore (Molester/rapist) cannot withdraw from the race under Alabama law.

Worse for Republicans, it doesn’t appear anyone else can enter the race at this stage.

Going to be interesting as to how many of Alabama’s evangelicals can sell out their “religion” and vote for Moore.

Roy Moore Can’t Be Taken Off the Ballot

Senate Republicans are calling for him to drop out if the explosive allegations against him are true. It wouldn’t be so simple.

Several Republicans in the Senate, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have called for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to exit the race if reports of sexual contact with a minor are true. But it wouldn’t be quite so simple for Moore to drop out of the race.

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that four women have said Moore pursued them when they were teenagers, including one who was 14 when Moore, then 32, allegedly initiated a sexual encounter with her. That quickly prompted McConnell and others to say Moore should step aside if the allegations are valid.

But Alabama law prohibits a candidate from withdrawing within 76 days before the election. The runoff between Moore, who beat incumbent Luther Strange in the Republican primary, and Democrat Doug Jones is scheduled for December 12. And Moore’s name will be on the ballot.

Alabama law prohibits withdrawal of candidate from election within 76 days of the election (Ala. Code 17-6-21(c); accord 17-13-23): http://alisondb.legislature.state.al.us/alison/codeofalabama/1975/17-6-21.htm 

Moore is best known as the controversial state supreme court judge who was removed from the bench after refusing to take down a courthouse monument to the Ten Commandments. He has vehemently denied the allegations of pursuing the teenagers, saying they are “the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation.”

10 Commandments Alabama Judge/Republican Senate Candidate Roy Moore Accused of Child Rape

Major Chumph supporter. Love it how these white-wing religious hypocrites who try and shove their religion down everyone else’s throats frequently wind up getting caught having violated at least half of the Ten Commandments they try and stick on the Courthouse lawn.

Yet another in a long, long line of far right thugs caught diddling children.

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.”

Arkansas 10 Commandments Monument on Statehouse Ground Lasts Less than 24 Hours

The Constitution forbids the establishment of a State Religion. That hasn’t stopped the white-wing evangelical Republicans in some state from trying to ram their religion down everyone else’s throats.

More signs of resistance to the CHumph fascist state.

Less than a day after a monument of the Ten Commandments was installed outside the Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock, it was destroyed when a man smashed a car into the stone.

Authorities say Michael T. Reed II drove a 2016 Dodge Dart into the 6,000-pound granite slab at about 4:47 a.m. local time on Wednesday.

“My boss called me and told me the Ten Commandments monument had been destroyed,” Secretary of State and Capitol Police spokesman Chris Powell told NPR. “When I got here, it was rolled over on the sidewalk and broken into multiple pieces.”

A video that appears to have been taken from inside the car was posted on the Facebook account of a Michael Reed early Wednesday; Powell told the AP that officials believe the video is authentic. It shows what looks like the Arkansas State Capitol building. A man’s voice says: “Oh my goodness. Freedom!” as the car careens into the monument.

Powell said the crash into the 6-foot-tall slab was no accident.

Michael T. Reed of Van Buren, Ark., was booked into the Pulaski County jail on Wednesday morning. He faces preliminary charges of defacing an object of public respect (sic), trespassing and criminal mischief.

“This was deliberate. The individual drove down there and stopped. He was videoing it on his cellphone as he accelerated into the monument,” Powell said. “One of our Capitol Police officers was on patrol and witnessed it.”

Reed, who police say is a 32-year-old white man from Van Buren, Ark., was arrested outside the Capitol and booked at the Pulaski County Jail. He faces preliminary charges of defacing an object of public respect, a Class C felony; criminal mischief in the first degree, a Class C felony; and trespassing on the state Capitol grounds, a misdemeanor.

Reed was arrested in 2014 for driving a car into the Ten Commandments monument at Oklahoma’s state Capitol, Oklahoma County Sheriff’s spokesman Mark Opgrande told The Associated Press. He was admitted to a hospital the next day for mental treatment and was not formally charged, the AP reports. In the 2014 incident, The Oklahoman reported that the U.S. Secret Service interviewed Reed and that he told agents that he has bipolar disorder and that Satan had directed him to destroy the monument.

The Tulsa World reported in 2015 that Reed sent the newspaper a letter apologizing for the destruction of the Oklahoma monument. “I am so sorry that this all happening (sic) and wished I could take it all back,” Reed wrote, explaining to the World that he had begun to believe the voices in his head.

Police said Wednesday that Reed was cooperative during his arrest and that, so far, there is no indication of motive.

The erection of the privately funded monument has been contentious. The Arkansas Legislature passed a law in 2015 requiring the installation of the monument on Capitol grounds. The Ten Commandments were erected Tuesday morning, and the ACLU of Arkansas has said it will sue for the monument’s removal.
