Doug Jones Puts Roy Moore Accusers in New Campaign Ad
Doug Jones, the Democrat running against Roy Moore in Alabama, released a new campaign ad on Wednesday that features the nine women who have accused Moore of sexual misconduct “They were girls when Roy Moore immorally pursued them. Now they are women, witnesses to us all of his disturbing conduct. Will we make their abuser a U.S. senator?” the narrator says as photos of the young girls appear on-screen. Jones had previously declined to go all-in on to politically capitalize on the scandal, but his campaign has highlighted the issue more in recent days. On Tuesday, President Trump implicitly offered his support for Moore, disparaging Jones as a “weak” candidate and emphasizing that the alleged incidents occurred forty years ago.
