The sabotage campaign of Judge Roy Moore by the Republican Party establishment is sinking to desperate new lows. After Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for Moore to surrender to the Democrats, a McConnell-affiliated PAC is now demanding to be refunded of its donation.
McConnell’s leadership PAC, Bluegrass Committee, gave a $5,000 donation to Judge Roy Moore following his victory over Luther Strange in a runoff primary election earlier this year. The Bluegrass Committee is now requesting that the money be returned to the organization.
“I think he should step aside,” McConnell said after allegations were levied against Judge Moore. He insists that he trusts the women’s story despite no credible evidence being produced to back up their conveniently-timed allegations of sexual impropriety.
While this amount of money is a drop in the bucket for McConnell’s deep-pocketed paymasters, they are doing this out of sheer spite just to hurt Judge Moore and generate more negative publicity against him so his Democratic challenger, a former Clinton-era federal attorney named Doug Jones who is pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage, can get to the Senate.
But Judge Moore knows exactly what is happening, and refuses to play the political establishment’s twisted game. He is standing strong, and taking the fight back to McConnell.
“This is an effort by Mitch McConnell and his cronies to steal this election from the people of Alabama, and they will not stand for it,” Judge Moore said. “They overcame $30 million and voted me in the primary, and now they are trying a different tactic.”
If Judge Moore gets into the Senate, McConnell’s lack of party loyalty and common decency will certainly make the judge into a constant thorn in the backside of the swampy GOP leader whose dirty money does not go as far as it used to. The voters of Alabama will ultimately decide who will be their next Senator on Dec. 12.
