NRA Supports Accused Child Molester Roy Moore For U.S. Senate
The National Rifle Association (NRA) has quietly donated $55,000 in an effort to help accused child molester and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.
Moore, who was suspended from the Alabama Supreme Court twice, has been accused of sexual misconduct by six women when they were teens.
One of Moore’s accusers claims that he tried to rape her when she was 14 years old. Moore denies all the allegations, and claims he does not know any of the women despite contrary evidence that he knew Debbie Wesson Gibson when she graduated high school at age 17.
Ashley Balcerzak, of Public Integrity, tweeted a copy of the NRA Political Victory Fund’s Federal Election Commission filings:
After staying dormant in the general election, @NRA spends $54,000 on anti- @GDouglasJones postcards in Alabama Special #ALsen #Alabama.
However, the NRA does not mention supporting Moore in its Political Victory Fund or Institute for Legislative Action websites, notes Media Matters.
The NRA Political Victory Fund only mentions supporting Republican candidates in Oklahoma and Tennessee.
