Last week was rough for Roy Moore.
But the former judge and accused child molester is chalking the whole fallout up to a simple phenomenon — voter fraud.
During an interview with a conservative radio host, the “Jeff Poor Show,” Moore said he was “surprised” by the warnings from the “Washington establishment” against his election bid. He launched into a convoluted diatribe about how establishment Republicans are afraid he’ll win because he won’t join their “club” in the Senate.
“They’ve gotta come up with some reason to dissuade me so that their chosen candidate can get elected, who that may be, but it’s not me,” he said.
“Everybody has a right to run for the United States Senate,” he continued. “I will say this, the Washington establishment has more control over what happens in Alabama than people realize, just like the last election showed. That election was so fought by establishment Republicans and of course the Democrats which naturally would. … I think people should know that there’s an attempt to steal their vote.”
Last week both the President and Trump Jr. tweeted warnings about a possible Moore Senate bid. Republicans are concerned a Moore run would result in Sen. Doug Jones’ (D-AL) reelection. Moore says he has not yet made a final decision about running, but plans to make an announcement this month.
