Conservatives Mock Jeff Flake For Donating to Doug Jones Campaign: This is a ‘Bad Idea’


Earlier today, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) made a big political statement by writing a $100 check to Alabama Democrat Doug Jones.

The outgoing senator has been outspoken about his disdain for GOP senate candidate Roy Moore, whose campaign has been dogged with sexual misconduct and child molestation allegations. Last month, he had said he would support a Democrat over the controversial judge. And it appears he truly put his money where his mouth is.

While Flake was applauded by the left for making such a financial contribution, conservatives blasted the senator, not necessarily for helping Jones, but for ultimately helping Moore.

Even one of Flake’s Republican colleagues, Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, thought it was a “bad idea.”

And it appears Roy Moore is attempting to fundraising off of Flake’s donations to Jones.
