Romney Jumps Bandwagon: ‘Moore Unfit for Office’

Mitt Romney is in the same boat as John McCain and Mitch McConnell: they’re all against the “America First” agenda, and anything to do with President Donald Trump. It is as if they do things against the best interest of the party and the people, simply to spite Trump.

Now Romney is bagging on  Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, stating that he is “unfit for office and should step aside.”

This follows allegations that Moore had a sexual encounter with 53-year-old Leigh Corfman, who was 14-years-old at the time. However, Moore denies the allegations and they have not been proven true. The exact same witch hunt was tried when Trump ran for president and guess what? It was a complete lie, posed to derail his campaign.

Is this any different? I guess we will have to wait and see.

Romney rambled on, “Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.”

The Hill reports: 

Corfman told The Washington Post that in 1979 Moore drove her to his house, where Moore took off his clothes as well as Corfman’s. Corfman said Moore then touched her over her underwear and attempted to get her to do the same to him.

The new report also includes testimonies from three women, aged between 16 and 18 at the time, who described romantic advances by Moore.

Romney’s comments come after more than a dozen GOP senators and the White House have urged Moore to step down if the allegations prove to be true. Moore has denied the allegations as an attack by the newspaper and Democrats ahead of the December special election for the Senate seat.

Hmm, so why wait for dozens of years before speaking up? Sounds a little too coincidental to me. What do you think?
