FYI – In response to reports this morning that Mitch McConnell said he believes the allegations that Roy Moore sexually assaulted a 14-year-old and pursued several other teenage girls when he was in his 30s and thinks that Moore should “step aside,” CREDO released the following statement:
“If Mitch McConnell doesn’t think Roy Moore should be in the U.S. Senate, he should put his money where his mouth is and publicly commit now that he won’t seat him in the Republican Senate caucus if Moore manages to be elected,” CREDO Director of Organizing Kaili Lambe said. “Anything short of that will show that McConnell cares more about maintaining control of the Senate than he does about keeping accused sexual predators out of office.”
CREDO’s petition calling on McConnell not to seat Moore in the Republican caucus, which was just launched on Saturday morning, has been signed by more than 85,000 people. The petition reads:
“Take an immediate clear stand against Roy Moore. Publicly commit that you will not seat him in the Senate Republican caucus if he is elected.”
