Republican strategist Evan Siegfried said on MSNBC Sunday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) should refuse to seat Alabama ex-Chief Justice Roy Moore even if Moore does win the special election in December.
McConnell said he is willing to lose the Senate seat to a Democrat rather than have a child sexual predator in his caucus, which Siegfried applauded, but then said, “I wish Mitch McConnell would go a step further and say he wouldn’t seat him if he won.”
“There’s a lot of talk about innocent until proven guilty,” Siegfried continued, “but this isn’t a court of law, this is a political opinion and what we stand for as a party.”
Saying that it would be better to have a child sexual predator in the Senate than a Democrat, the strategist said, is putting party over country and is “a cancer” on the GOP.
Moore has come under fire this week after a bombshell Washington Post article leveled accusations against him of making sexual advances toward underage girls.

Confederate battle flag banned — Marine Corps declares it a ‘threat to our core values’
The United States Marine Corps banned the public display of the Confederate battle flag on Friday.
"Depictions of the Confederate battle flag are unauthorized in public and work spaces aboard an installation," the Marine Corps wrote in guidance to the troops.
The ban applies to bumper stickers, clothing and flags among other items.
"The Confederate battle flag has all too often been co-opted by violent extremist and racist groups whose divisive beliefs have no place in our Corps," the Marines explained.
"Our history as a nation, and events like the violence in Charlottesville in 2017, highlight the divisiveness the use of the Confederate battle flag has had on our society," the continued. "The presents a threat to our core values, unit cohesion, security, and good order and discipline."

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed
George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.
"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."
