What’s going on?
Several pastors want their names removed from an endorsement letter for Roy Moore that was originally released before the GOP primary.
Kayla Moore, Roy Moore’s wife, apparently re-posted the letter on Facebook over the weekend without its original date, making it look as if more than 50 Alabama pastors were coming forward to support Moore after multiple allegations that he tried to assault teenage girls while in his 30s.
The RNC has pulled support from Moore’s campaign after the allegations.
What are the pastors saying in response?
After her post, several pastors told AL.com that they did not give permission for their names to be used in that context.
“The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore,” Pastor Thad Endicott told AL.com.
Even after being accused of trying to seduce a 14-year-old and assaulting a 16-year-old, Moore is ahead in polls for Alabama’s Senate race – showing what’s wrong with our politics.
