It appears that Roy Moore is now using allegations that he had inappropriate sexual contact with a 14-year-old when he was 32 to fundraise.
As Toronto Star‘s Washington correspondent Daniel Dale noted on Twitter, Moore’s campaign sent a fundraising email Thursday afternoon with the subject line “we are in a spiritual battle” that alleges he is being attacked by the “Obama-Clinton machine’s liberal lapdogs.”
