Alabama Governor Supports Roy Moore Because He’s Republican

Moral failure: Alabama Governor Kay Ivey says she believes that Roy Moore is a child molester, but will vote for him anyway.

Speaking at a Thanksgiving turkey pardon event, Gov. Ivey placed party over morality, saying she would support Moore despite the fact that the man is an unrepentant child molester. Ivey said:

I believe in the Republican Party, what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions. So that’s what I plan to do, vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore.

Gov. Ivey acknowledged that Moore is an unrepentant child molester. When asked, the governor said she believed the multiple victims who report Moorer sexually abused and harassed them as teenagers. Asked if she believed Moore’s accusers, Ivey said:

I certainly have no reason to disbelieve any of them. The timing is a little curious. But at the same time, I have no reason to disbelieve them.

Ivey said the fact Moore is a child molester “bothers” her, but will not prevent her from voting for Moore in the senate election next month. Alabama Governor Ivey said:

There’s never an excuse for or rationale for sexual misconduct or sexual abuse. It bothers me.

However, despite Moore’s heinous past, Ivey will support the candidate because he is a Republican.  Ivey said:

Consider all the information that you have. Certainly, it has an impact. But at the same time, the United States Senate needs to have in my opinion, a majority of Republican votes to carry the day and when they have to consider other major decisions. So that’s a factor, as well.

Bottom line: It bothers Alabama Governor Kay Ivey that Roy Moore is a child molester, but she will place party over morality, and vote for the Republican. Her moral failure is astonishing. Weep for Alabama. Weep for America.
