Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones’ campaign is hitting Republican Roy Moore on an academic textbook Moore co-authored in 2011 that decried women in public office.

Moore’s name was not attributed to the portion of the study that advocates against women in leadership position but Jones’ campaign criticized him for co-authoring the textbook and its accompanying studyguide. He authored another lesson in the course that primarily focused on the Constitution and the courts.

The same men quick to judge Bentley rush to Roy Moore’s defense

The allegations facing U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore are not Alabama’s first experience with alleged sexual improprieties among the state’s top brass. The reaction, however, is much different from the two men who led the charge against former Gov. Robert Bentley when he was accused of having an affair with a top adviser.

On Thursday, hours after the Washington Post’s bombshell article published, accusing Moore of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl in 1979, State Auditor Jim Zeigler spoke with the Washington Examiner, invoking Jesus and the Bible in defense of Moore.

Maybe there is no rock bottom for the Alabama Republican Party.

Maybe it’s just that mushy mud that you find on the bottom of the Tennessee River, and the ALGOP just keeps burrowing deeper and deeper into the muck and filth.

Thursday brought on a new bout of digging, with a familiar face behind the shovel.

Roy Moore. The ever-constant posterboy for what is wrong in Alabama politics.

Brinson says Brooks’ trying to manipulate Christian voters

Tuesday, July 11, 2017, Republican US Senate candidate Dr. Randy Brinson said that US Representative Mo Brooks’ (R-Huntsville) latest campaign commercial is a ploy to make voters believe his candidacy is supported by President Trump.

Dr. Brinson said in a statement, “This is just another example of Mo Brooks saying what he thinks will get him elected. In February, 2016, he went on MSNBC the day before the Super Tuesday primaries and said ‘a lot of people who have supported Donald Trump, they are going to regret having done so, because you’re going to find that on a significant number of those issues (including border security), Donald Trump is not going to do what people think he’s going to do.’ Mo Brooks then went on to call the President a ‘serial adulterer’ and said ‘I don’t support people who support adultery.’”

Monday, May 9, Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler (R) responded to an op-ed that Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) wrote for the Alabama Media Group.

Auditor Zeigler said, “I am having real trouble reconciling Gov. Bentley’s invoking of scripture with his deeds.”

Gov. Bentley wrote to the people of Alabama over the weekend: “I believe – I know – in my heart that I am serving out God’s purpose for my life, and that He placed me here to work for you and to solve the problems that have held our state back for decades. The Lord gave me a job to do, and I always want to work it with all my might. And that takes vision.”
