The Republican National Committee has restored funding to the senatorial campaign of accused pedophile Roy Moore of Alabama. The New York Times reports tonight that after President Trump’s endorsement for the former Alabama Supreme Court Justice who was twice removed from his seat for violating court orders, the Republican National Committee voted to restore its support for a candidate accused of sexual misconduct against teenage girls.
Mr. Trump’s endorsement and the party’s machinations came a day after Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, had stepped back from his earlier criticism of Mr. Moore, saying Alabama voters should “make the call” on whether to send Mr. Moore to the Senate. Taken together, the week’s developments suggested that Republicans were increasingly confident that Mr. Moore is well positioned to defeat Doug Jones, the Democratic nominee, in next week’s special election.
The news comes the same day Debbie Wesson Gibson, who has said she dated Mr. Moore for about two months when she was 17 and he was twice her age, showed The Washington Post a graduation card she said he had written to her. In scrawling script, it wished her a happy graduation and said, “I wanted to give you this card myself. I know that you’ll be a success in anything you do. Roy.”
Leigh Corfman, who accused Mr. Moore of touching her over her underwear when she was 14, wrote her own letter in response to Mr. Moore’s denials.
“What you did to me when I was 14-years old should be revolting to every person of good morals,” Ms. Corfman wrote in the letter published by the Alabama Media Group. “But now you are attacking my honesty and integrity. Where does your immorality end?”
Some people quickly criticized the president for his endorsement. Paula Cobia, a lawyer for another of Mr. Moore’s accusers, said Mr. Trump was being hypocritical in advocating a border wall to keep out criminals while endorsing a Senate candidate “with multiple accusations against him for child molestation and sexual predation.”
I’m wondering if Alabama voters will elect a man they’d horsewhip, if they caught him messing with their own daughters.

The Party of Family Values apparently values a senate seat more than they value the safety of young women from sexual predators and pedophiles.
