roy moore (no more capital letters for him) is like an intestinal virus. You keep thinking, hoping, it will disappear, but it hangs on and makes you sick every day.
From Kim Chandler’s article for the Associated Press:
Republican Roy Moore filed a lawsuit to try to stop Alabama from certifying Democrat Doug Jones as the winner of the U.S. Senate race.
The court filing occurred about 14 hours ahead of Thursday’s meeting of a state canvassing board to officially declare Jones the winner of the Dec. 12 special election. Jones defeated Moore by about 20,000 votes.
Moore’s attorney wrote in the complaint filed late Wednesday that he believed there were irregularities during the election and said there should be a fraud investigation and eventually a new election.
Republicans – most of them, anyway – made it clear they did not want Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate. Even President Trump, who originally supported Moore’s opponent, Luther Strange, only came on board because he needed to retain a Republican senate majority – not out of any regard for moore himself.
Obviously, Democrats certainly wanted no part of this guy.
And even the voters of deep-red Alabama were more disposed to elect a pro-abortion Democrat then him.
But, like that intestinal virus, there he is. Still there, and still just as unwanted.
Go ride that horse of yours into the sunset, moore. Believe me, you won’t be missed.
