While women continue to come out of the woodwork alleging Roy Moore‘s sexual misconduct with them as teenagers when he was in the 30s, one group of women are taking a stand in support of him.
“Women for Moore” will hold a press conference Friday morning on the steps of the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery, where they will defend the former Alabama Chief Justice who they claim “has faithfully served in public office for forty years.”
“He ran for Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court twice and won and he ran Governor in 2010. Yet, not once, during all that time were there any allegations of sexual misconduct,” Gerritson wrote in a news release announcing the event. “During the fight over the removal of the Ten Commandments monument in 2003 and again last year he was put through the fire with the Judicial Inquiry Commission there were no allegations of sexual impropriety. But now, one month before the election, a volunteer of his opponent, Doug Jones, who also worked as an interpreter for Democrat Joe Biden comes forward. The second accuser is also looking very suspicious. It appears that the evidence that she has against Moore has been fabricated.”
“We know Judge Moore and we aren’t buying it,” Gerritson concluded.
Gerritson will be among the speakers at the event that will attest to Moore’s character. She will be joined by Ann Eubank, the statewide co-chair of Rainy Day Patriots, and the legislative chair of the Alabama Legislative Watchdogs, and Moore’s wife Kayla.
Moore has been under fire since The Washington Post published an explosive report Thursday afternoon with the accounts of four women who claim he sexually pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were in their teens. As of Thursday evening, a total of nine women have levied accusations against Moore. The news has caused rapid fallout from dozens within the Republican Party who have called on him to withdraw his name from next month’s special election if the allegations are true.
