Rep. Mo Brooks Voting for Roy Moore Because Conservatism Is ‘Vastly More Important’ Than Allegations
Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) says he will continue to support Roy Moore because the conservative agenda is too important to be derailed by the sexual allegations against the embattled senate candidate.
Moore’s campaign is under increasing pressure now that a fifth woman has come out with her claims about Moore’s disturbing behavior towards her when she was a teenager. Multiple Republican figures have dropped their endorsements for Moore’s campaign and recommended that he step down in favor of a Republican write-in candidate for next month’s election.
Based on Brook’s statement to The Birmingham News, it seems he’ll support Moore despite the recent news:
“America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago. Who will vote in America’s best interests on Supreme Court justices, deficit and debt, economic growth, border security, national defense, and the like? Socialist Democrat Doug Jones will vote wrong. Roy Moore will vote right. Hence, I will vote for Roy Moore.”
The latest accusation against Moore comes from Beverly Young Nelson, who says Moore tried to rape her in his car when she was 16. Moore has denied Nelson’s accusations and said he didn’t know her even though she presented the media with her old yearbook that Moore signed back in 1979.
