Roy Moore whines he’s being ‘harassed by media’ for pressuring teenage girls for sex

Published

on

Roy Moore railed against “the media” during a late Tuesday event, claiming that he is the victim of a witch hunt. The claim is a familiar one President Donald Trump frequently uses when he comes under fire. Moore was also caught fundraising off of the so-called “fake news.”

“Why do you think they’re giving me trouble? Why do you think I’m being harassed by media, and by people pushing forward allegations in the last 28 days in this election,” More told a church conference audience in Jackson, Alabama, The Hill reported.

“I’m the only one who could unite Democrats and Republicans,” he continued. “Because I seem to be opposed by both. They’ve spent over $30 million trying to take me out.”

Moore continues to come under fire by his own party, who has lined up to defend multiple accusers claiming Moore touched them inappropriately before the legal age of consent. The Washington Post published an explosive expose alleging Moore molested a 14-year-old girl when he was 32. Monday, Beverly Young Nelson came forward to reveal she too was inappropriately touched and threatened by Moore when he was also in his 30s.

Moore was banned from the Gadsden Mall in the 1970’s for “repeatedly” hitting on teen girls. It was revealed that high-level politicians, local law enforcement and others knew of Moore’s actions in Gadsden Mall.

The allegations have prompted the establishment wing of the GOP, along with party leaders, to denounce Moore, pull funding and look for ways to block him from being elected or taking office. Alabama newspapers are also beginning to pull endorsements from Moore.

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

on

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
