Comment about Jews by Roy Moore's wife sparks new ridicule

Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) said Tuesday she has received at least one angry phone call from a Roy Moore supporter claiming to be an Associated Press reporter since she warned the Senate Sergeant at Arms of Roy Moore's "predatory" behavior.

According to the Washington Post, with 93.9 percent of the precincts reporting, Jones received 629,755 votes to 619,952 votes for Moore.

If Democrat Doug Jones wins, he would be the first Democrat to represent Alabama in the Senate in more than 20 years, and give the Republicans a razor-thin 51-vote majority.

Jones, 63, a former federal prosecutor, prevailed over Roy Moore, whose campaign was dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct toward teenagers. The misconduct allegations weighed down the race, especially with Congress and the entire country in the middle of a painful reckoning with sexual harassment and abuse.

"I have always believed that the people of Alabama have more in common than what divide us", Jones said in his victory speech on Tuesday night. Luther Strange, who was selected to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in the GOP primary, despite having little support from the Republican Party, including Trump, who initially endorsed Strange.

Moore expressed confidence that he will win. "From being kicked out of office as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court; disobeying rulings of higher courts about his Ten Commandments monument and same-sex marriage; his grandstanding for his views on Christianity; his willingness to disregard the law of the land if it conflicts with his Christian ideals ... a lot of people simply can not stomach the idea of voting for Moore, and that's before we even get to the sexual allegations". The issue was, of course, brought up in Tuesday's interview, when Moore's spokesperson also said that he still believes people of Muslim faith should not be allowed to serve the USA because they can't swear on a bible. He was trying to become the first Democrat in a quarter century to win an Alabama Senate seat. "That is where Roy Moore is in the state of Alabama".

It all began with President Donald Trump choosing then-GOP Sen.

"There's a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better", Bannon said, in a remark that echoed Ivanka Trump's comment when she was asked about Moore that there is a "special place in hell" for those who prey on children. And Moore's extreme views likely turned off a lot of moderate Republicans and independents even before the revelations about his past.
