Alabama Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-AL02) announced via Twitter Saturday morning that she will not be voting for Republican nominee Donald Trump one month from today in light of the derogatory comments he made about women which were revealed Friday.
Donald Trump’s behavior makes him unacceptable as a candidate for president, and I won’t vote for him.

The denouncement comes after a tumultuous day for Republicans, whose presidential nominee was revealed to have bragged in 2005 about the unsolicited sexual advances he made on women, saying “And when you’re a star, they let you do it.”
Thus far Roby is the only Republican member of the Alabama delegation to officially withdraw her support of Trump, though Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL05) never endorsed him to begin with.
Several prominent Republicans have also announced they are no longer supporting the nominee, including House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT03), while House Speaker Paul Ryan canceled an event with him last minute Friday evening.
Others, like Roby, are calling from Trump to end his bid and allow himself to be replaced by another Republican, presumably his Vice Presidential nominee Indiana Governor Mike Pence. But with exactly a month to go before the election, it is unlikely all 50 states would have time to reprint all the ballots, should such drastic measures be taken.
