"I Believe The Women" - Mitch McConnell Calls For Moore To "Step Aside"

Following Roy Moore's vehement denial of teen sex abuse allegations on Friday, the weekend saw political furore rising and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell may have just sealed the Bannon-backed candidate's future.

"It never happened... If you abuse a 14-year-old you shouldn't be a Senate candidate. I agree with that," Moore said. "But I did not do that."

But, as The Hill reports, Mitch McConnel  on Monday called for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to "step aside," according to the Associated Press...

McConnell was asked if he believes the allegations are true.

"I believe the women," he said.

McConnell is not the first, as multiple lawmakers have called for Moore to step aside following the reports; however, he is the highest-ranking GOP official yet.

Howeverm, as The Hill notes, even if Moore withdraws from the Senate race - something he has said he will not do - Republicans are stuck with his name remaining on the ballot.

The deadline for the party to remove Moore's name from the ballot passed in October, though Republicans could mount a write-in challenge. Republicans have also floated trying to move back the December election date.

McConnell said on Monday that the party is exploring a write-in bid, though he declined to say specifically who would be the candidate.

"That's an option we're looking at, whether or not there is someone who could mount a write in successfully," he said.

Pressed if Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who Moore defeated in the GOP primary runoff (and was backed by President Trump), would be the write-in candidate, McConnell added: "We'll see."

If Mitch believed this woman, then he sure hasn't said anything.

"Roslyn Corrigan was sixteen years old when she got a chance to meet George H.W. Bush, excited to be introduced to a former president having grown up dreaming of going into politics.

But Corrigan was crushed by her encounter: Bush, then 79 years old, groped her buttocks at a November 2003 event in The Woodlands, Texas, office of the Central Intelligence Agency where Corrigan’s father gathered with fellow intelligence officers and family members to meet Bush, Corrigan said. Corrigan is the sixth woman since Oct. 24 to accuse Bush publicly of grabbing her buttocks without consent.

“My initial reaction was absolute horror. I was really, really confused,” Corrigan told TIME, speaking publicly for the first time about the encounter. “The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything. What does a teenager say to the ex-president of the United States? Like, ‘Hey dude, you shouldn’t have touched me like that?’”

10 Commandments...5 down...5 to go...Weinstein attorney booked solid...also defends Zionist supporters...money talks...

We must remember that Israel is the United States' most important ally and partner in the Middle East and should reject agreements or policies that undermine Israel's security. We should pass the Taylor Force Act and move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Roy, don't believe the polls. DJT ignored the polls as well.I hope one of those sealed indictments has McConnell's name on it....and I sincerely hope that McCain's name is on there too. If by chance it is and the allegations, God forbid, involve small children, they will deserve to be rended limb from limb by the anger of the mob that they have created over these past few years.  The mob and their anger are growing.

Moore is not a member of the DC GOP establishment; in the minds of the establishment, he is therefore a target to be destroyed regardless of what the facts may be.Who else has noticed that when a woman makes an accusation against a conservative, such an accusation is chiseled-in-stone fact - but an identical accusation against a leftist is considered bunk and irrelevant?

I believe the girls screaming "Witch! Witch! Witch!" No proof needed. Screw the constitution, common law and common sense. It's mob rule by elites now. He who owns the microphones and screams the loudest is how we mete out justice today. When do we get to the shooting part?

Both political parties are fighting internecine wars within their ranks.  Part of the reason lies with the simple fact that both parties have been captured by the international banking cartel.  Neither party represents the United States.  Those few politicians within the parties that actually have American interests at heart have been sidelined by the money machine that runs both parties.  As a result, government is the only thriving business left in the United States.   Both political parties are dead men walking.  The question is which one will disintegrate first.  If the Republicans do not back Trump, they are done.
