Roy Moore In Free Fall As GOP Senator Endorses Democrat Doug Jones In Alabama Senate Race

The walls continued to cave in on Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore on Monday as a key Republican Senator has now officially endorsed Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.

When Republican Sen. Jeff Flake was asked whether he would support Moore or his opponent, he didn’t hesitate: “If this choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, a Democrat.”

“For sure,” he added.

Flake’s admission comes after another woman came forward to reveal that Moore had sexually assaulted her when she was just 16 years old.

According to accuser Beverly Young Nelson, Moore had groped her inside of a locked car before trying to force her head “into his crotch.”

When Moore finally backed off and left the car, he told the 16-year-old girl that nobody would believe her if she tried to divulge what happened, citing his position as a county prosecutor.

Nelson’s account makes her the fifth woman who has come forward in the past week alleging that Roy Moore initiated unwanted sexual advances when they were just teenagers.

More initially denied the charges, dismissing them as “fake news,” but things became much dicier in an interview with Sean Hannity when he told the right-wing hack that he didn’t “generally” date teenagers as young as 16 years old when he was in his 30s, which is essentially an admission of guilt.

As each day seems to bring about a new disturbing revelation when it comes to Moore’s past sexual misconduct, Republicans are increasingly unable to defend the Senate nominee.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell finally said today that he believes the women accusing Moore and thinks he should step aside.

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Cory Gardner took it a step further and said if Moore doesn’t drop out of the race and Alabama voters still elect him, then he should be kicked out of the U.S. Senate.

“If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him.”

With the Republican Party finally coming to its senses, and one of them even endorsing the Democratic candidate, it’s becoming clear that Roy Moore’s days in politics are numbered, even if he does eke out a victory in Alabama.
