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.
Roy Moore really wanted to finish in the teens tonight…

Roy Moore refuses to concede the Alabama Senate election, making him just another sex offender who doesn't understand the word "no."

Weird that Roy Moore is still in the news. I figured that once the millennium turned 18 he’d have lost interest in it.

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.”
