The Republican Governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey, has just announced that, even though she believes the women accusing Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual molestation when they were still teenagers, she’s going to vote for him anyway because he’s a Republican.
According to AL.com, Governor Ivey believes that protecting a Republican majority in the Senate was more important than preventing a pedophile from joining the Senate.
“I’m going to cast my ballot on December the 12th, and I do believe the nominee of the party is the one I’ll vote for,” Ivey said. “I believe in the Republican Party, what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions. So that’s what I plan to do, vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore.”
Apparently, if Harvey Weinstein was on the ballot as a Republican, she’d vote for him too.
The complete abandonment of any moral accountability by Republicans trying to protect their candidate in the Alabama Senate race shows that the only thing that the Republican party stands for is power, and they’ll do anything to retain it to make sure that they can continue to provide tax cuts for their corporate benefactors, destroy the environment by gutting regulations, and try to take health care away from millions of Americans.
If a woman governor who believes the accusations of pedophilia against Roy Moore is still planning on voting for him, then American politics has sunk to a low never before seen.
Want to run for office, but you have this annoying past history as a serial killer that you think might make your candidacy less than viable –– no problem, as long as you’re a Republican. Have you embezzled millions from your employer, but still want to become a member of Congress? As long as you’re pro-life, you’ll get a blank check for your campaign from the Alabama Republican party.
It appears as if there is no longer any action that is considered heinous enough to disqualify a person from holding office, as long as you’re a Republican. Just ponder that for a moment. Ok, now you can scream.
