Maryland GOP Governor: Roy Moore ‘Unfit for Office,’ Would Defenders Excuse If He Was a Democrat?
Maryland’s Republican governor has become the latest voice the speak out against Roy Moore and call on him to step aside.
In his statement today, Governor Larry Hogan also said Moore’s defenders should consider how they would react if the accused politician was a Democrat or if one of the victims was their own daughter:
Roy Moore’s defenders should ask themselves if they would be so quick to excuse him if the victim was their daughter or if the offender was a Democrat. He is unfit for office and should step aside. Americans are better than this.

More Republicans have been publicly denouncing Moore and calling on him to step down. Two Republican senators have withdrawn their endorsements of Moore.
But in public remarks today, Moore made it clear he has no intention of going anywhere and thinks this is a political hit job.
