Moore: False accusations are “latest tool of political left to steal elections”

Sunday 2020 Democratic candidates Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker and Julian Castro all called for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh be impeached after new accusations of inappropriate sexual contact by Kavanaugh at drinking parties in college during the 1980s surfaced.

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore alleged the accusations are a tool used by the left in political campaigns.

“Unlike Brett Kavanaugh or anyone else who has suffered such false allegations, I did sue not only my accusers but also their conspirators for their attempt to destroy my very successful U.S. Senate campaign,” Moore told APR.

“Has justice prevailed?” Moore asked. “I have not seen or been able to question any of my accusers for two years, and my case against them has been put on hold. I have spent over $200,000 defending a defamation suit ‘against’ me for merely denying their false accusations.”

“False allegations are the latest tool of the political left to steal elections and deter conservative candidates from even running,” Moore said. “Nor will they stop until voters realize their obvious intent and take a stand, as I have done.”

A New York Time article by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, asserted that a Kavanaugh classmate, Clinton-connected nonprofit CEO Max Stier, “saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.”

Stier formerly worked as a defense attorney for President Bill Clinton and battled Kavanaugh while Kavanaugh worked for the Whitewater Investigation special counsel.

The Times claims that Stier “notified senators and the FBI about this account, but the FBI did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly.”

The female student herself has denied any knowledge of the alleged episode in which Stier claims a drunken Kavanaugh’s penis was thrust into her hand.

“False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop?” President Donald Trump said on Twitter.

In 2017 Moore appeared to be cruising to an easy ten-point win in the Senate special election over former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones until accusations of sexual impropriety were published in the Washington Post.

Moore has denied all of the accusations; but his campaign was abandoned by national Republican groups including the National Republican Senate Committee. That combined with an effort to write in a candidate and millions in money poured into the district by national Democrats helped Jones to a narrow victory over Moore in the special election.

Moore is a 2020 candidate for the Republican nomination.
