Roy Moore Uses Al Franken Allegation to Defend Himself

Alabama’s GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexual harassment or assault by at least eight different women—all of whom were in their teens at the time of the alleged incidents—is now going after Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) on Twitter. “Al Franken admits guilt after photographic evidence of his abuse surfaces. Mitch: ‘Let's investigate,’” Moore wrote on Twitter, referring to Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who called for an ethics investigation into his colleague. “In Alabama, ZERO evidence, allegations 100% rejected. Mitch: ‘Moore must quit immediately or be expelled.’’ After he was accused of kissing and groping a radio host against her will, Franken apologized for his behavior and agreed to cooperate in an ethics probe. Despite the accounts of multiple women who say Moore used his power as district attorney to sexually abuse them, he has denied all wrongdoing and vowed to stay in his Senate race.
