Failed GOP Senate candidate and accused child molester Roy Moore defended Brett Kavanaugh‘s Supreme Court nomination.
Moore told the right wing One American News network how unidentified people in the “left” were somehow making women come forward with sexual assault complaints:
I think they don’t care about transparency, they just use it because it’s effective. They know that on the one hand, you offend women if you believe somebody that says they weren’t guilty of sexual misconduct. On the other hand, if you don’t believe them, you’re condemning the person accused of guilt to prove his own innocence. It’s a Catch-22.
Moore — who is accused of sexually assaulting teen girls as an adult — urged Republicans to “take a stand” for Kavanaugh:
It’s so obvious that these tactics are used just days before a very important event. But these come up right before an election or a confirmation, and I think the Republicans need to take a stand. I think a lot of them don’t. They don’t like criticism.
