The V to carry extended interview with Roy Moore on Sunday

December 8, 2017

By Josh Moon
Alabama Political Reporter

For the past few weeks, following allegations of sexual assault and inappropriate behavior by several women, U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore has been mostly quiet, denying interview requests and refusing to answer questions at public appearances.

On Sunday, the “Voice of Alabama Politics” will air Moore’s first full interview with an Alabama news outlet in more than a month. That will include questions from host and “V” producer, Bill Britt, to Moore about the allegations against him and his recollections of that time in his life, nearly 40 years ago.

A very bad Roy Moore press event

November 22, 2017

By Josh Moon
Alabama Political Reporter

The Roy Moore campaign held a press event on Tuesday afternoon.

It was dumb.

I could stop there and you would likely know all you need to know about that … I’m not sure what exactly took place on the capitol steps Tuesday afternoon. A lecture? A physical manifestation of a message board troll ranting?

It was something in that ballpark, and very little of it was helpful, informative or even bearable.

Heroes in our midst

November 22, 2017

By Joey Kennedy

There are a lot of women out there who are my heroes. My wife, Veronica, is right at the top, no doubt.

Since last week’s column, where Veronica allowed me to share the two times she’s been sexually assaulted, we’ve heard from many people, including one reporter who is looking into the assault where a newspaper publisher spanked Veronica.

Another of my heroes is attorney Paula Cobia, who is representing Gloria Deason, one of the original four women who came forward in a Washington Post story accusing Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual assault and improper contact.

The Roy Moore Campaign claimed that newly unveiled statements from key witnesses “completely bust the story of Beverly Nelson and Gloria Allred and further reveal an unconscionable bias on the part of state and national press to hide the truth from Alabama voters who will undoubtedly see through the ‘fake news’ and elect Judge Moore for the man that they have always known him to be.”

Republican Steering Committee will meet to decide whether to support Moore

November 15, 2017

By Brandon Moseley
Alabama Political Reporter

Today, the Alabama Republican Steering Committee will meet to decide the fate of Roy Moore’s campaign for U.S. Senate.

Conservatives are urging the 21-member committee to announce that they are backing the Republican nominee, Roy Moore, despite allegations from multiple women, first reported by the Washington Post, that Moore acted inappropriately with them during the late 1970s.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and the powerful Washington Republican establishment are urging the committee to de-certify Moore as the Alabama Republican Party candidate and to free Republican officeholders and candidates to support a write-in candidate that is more acceptable to Senate leaders and would be less divisive.

There is no bottom for Roy Moore Republicans

Alabama Political Reporter

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.

By Brandon Moseley
Alabama Political Reporter

A bombshell allegation is suddenly unleashed on a populist candidate a month before the general election, women come forward with tales of misconduct, outraged media and GOP establishment types who never supported the nominee all demand that the nominee drop out of the race for the good of the party.

We all lived through this once; when an unflattering video of Donald Trump was released and the political world went into carefully orchestrated shock and outrage.
