The Honorable Judge Roy Moore has had it with the “honorable” part of his title being slandered and taken through the mud. This G.O.P member is a nominee for the U.S. Senate and he has pledged to take his good name back. Breitbart News reports that “he plans to sue the Washington Post for its series of hit pieces against him, his wife, his foundation, and his campaign.”
“Shortly after becoming the Republican nominee for the United States Senate, the Washington Post published an article attacking me, my wife, my Foundation for Moral Law in Montgomery, Alabama, on my salary,” said Moore to about 100 supporters in a closed meeting attended by Breitbart. It seems that these detestable hit pieces have gone too far and he is not taking it any longer.
“They said I took over a million dollars. There were not a million dollars. I wish I had a million dollars. In fact, I didn’t take the money they awarded me for a salary because I had my own recognition and opted to embrace that salary myself and not take anything from the foundation,” the judge also added.
So far it seems as if all of the things said against him are in no way factual. This is shown in deeper clarity when he says, ” So my salary collection wasn’t so much. Over eight years it would have been about $87,000 a year—so I had to take a note and a mortgage for the rest of it. But I never got the money.
“So, the Washington Post finally realized this after they published an article saying my wife and I got a million dollars, saying, ‘you didn’t pay taxes for what you didn’t get.'” Those attending are said to have laughed at this last comment.
The judge also spoke about other things far more important when he said, “As far as the right to keep and bear arms, I strongly support the Second Amendment. I believe that the problem is our moral problem. On abortion, I believe that abortion should be illegal. Roe versus Wade needs to be looked at again.
“His view on abortion is he believes in right to life after birth. I believe in right to life at conception. In other words, he believes in abortion—I don’t,” Moore said in regards to his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.
Not everyone will agree or support the judge’s message and that is perfectly fine. That is what America is supposed to be about.
It is not about slander, libel, and ruining the good character and reputation of a man in order to win an election.
This is a lesson that those on the left and the news sites that support them just never can seem to grasp. Maybe after getting sued they will understand.
