Brother says Roy Moore is being ‘persecuted’ just ‘like Jesus was’ by sex abuse allegations

Alabama U.S. Senate candidate — and twice-ousted ex-Chief Justice of the state’s Supreme Court — is being “persecuted” just like Jesus Christ was, said his brother Larry Moore on Friday.

CNN’s Manu Raju tweeted that Larry Moore made the comments to reporter Martin Savidge in a telephone interview.

David Wright posted a transcript of Savidge’s description of the call.

Four women accuse Moore of making sexual advances toward them when Moore was in his 30s and they were minors.

One of the girls was only 14 when Moore drove her to his house, plied her with alcohol, stripped her to her bra and underwear, took off his own clothes and then fondled her. Moore also tried to force the girl to touch his erect penis, but she pulled her hand away.

A small number of Republican leaders have called for Moore to step down and end his run for the Senate. Others, however — including state auditor Jim Zeigler, who compared Moore’s coupling with a 14-year-old to the relationship between Mary and Joseph in the Bible — have defended Moore against the accusations and declared that they still intend to vote for him.

A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
