The V to carry extended interview with Roy Moore on Sunday

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.

But Britt stressed that the interview was not limited to that topic, since the election on Tuesday holds ramifications for Alabama that exceed those allegations.

As a producer of ‘The Voice of Alabama Politics,’ I feel it’s important that the people of Alabama hear an extended conversation with the candidates for the U.S Senate seat,” Britt said, noting that both Moore and his opponent, Doug Jones, received invitations to appear on the show. Jones’ campaign did not respond to repeated invitations.

“This election has serious consequences for the entirety of our state and our country,” Britt continued. “We’re disappointed that Jones did not want to appear on our show.  During the interview that will be broadcast on Sunday, Moore answers why he’s running, what he will do if elected, and addresses the allegations made against him. At ‘The V’ and the Alabama Political Reporter, we believe that all sides should be heard and no voice be denied a reasonable chance to plead their case accurately.”

Moore will be the guest for the full 30 minute program.
