At least we can laugh about Roy Moore getting crushed in the Alabama GOP Senate race

Former senator and attorney general Jeff Sessions and onetime Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville are in a dead heat in the Republican primary race for U.S. Senate on Tuesday night, slating them for a runoff election. Trailing them are three-term GOP Rep. Bradley Byrne with 27.3 percent of the vote, while only 6.8 percent somehow felt alleged dater of underaged girls, Roy Moore, would have been a good choice.

This is the second Senate race Moore has lost, the first defeat coming after allegations emerged that he once had improper sexual contact with young girls.

“Nine women have come forward to accuse Moore of inappropriate sexual actions, including one who was 16 when she says he violently sexually assaulted her and another who was 14 when she says he initiated a sexual encounter,” TPM reported in 2017. “Before those accusations, he was best known for getting thrown off the Alabama Supreme Court twice for failing to follow the rule of law — and for his hardline theocratic views that his interpretation of the Bible supersedes the Constitution and harsh anti-gay and anti-Muslim statements.”
