Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell indicated that even if Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore wins the special election in December, he could face a rough time in Washington.
In an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News, McConnell predicted that Moore could have “ethics issues,” and the Senate would deal with the aftermath of those issues after the people of Alabama vote on Dec. 12.
McConnell was no doubt referring to an ethics investigation regarding the allegations that Moore acted inappropriately with two underage girls decades ago.
Moore has denied these allegations, and despite the left’s attempts to bring him down via these accusations, he has managed to see an increase in support.
McConnell’s prediction that Moore would have to “deal with the aftermath” of the allegations against him is almost laughable when we stop and look at the amount of ethical impropriety that goes on in Washington.
For instance, taxpayers have paid out more than $17 million in settlements from harassment settlements on Capitol Hill in the past 20 years, according to the Congressional Office of Compliance. Not only have the offenders not been forced out of office, they haven’t even been identified.
Who has paid for the aftermath of those harassment claims, other than the taxpayer?
But McConnell has singled out Moore with some kind of veiled threat.
McConnell did not say whether the Senate would vote to remove Moore, but he did say that it would be only “up to the (Senate Ethics) committee.”
Take a look at the interview below:
The majority leader, who supported incumbent Sen. Luther Strange in the Republican primary runoff against Moore, has done his best to prevent Moore from earning votes by calling on him to step down amid the allegations against him.
McConnell perhaps has other issues he should be focusing on, such as his own approval rating.
While Moore’s popularity has increased in the polls, McConell’s sits at the bottom of the least-popular senator list.
According to a Politco/Morning Consult poll from July 1 to Sept. 30, McConnell is America’s least popular senator with a whopping 55 percent disapproval rating, and a meager 33 percent approval rating.
It’s a shame that McConnell has gone after Moore like this, and his tireless efforts seem to support the notion that the swamp looks after its own.
McConnell should let the voters of Alabama decide whether Moore will be their representative.
