Roy Moore comes roaring back in recent poll


Self-evidently awful person Roy Moore is running for the USA senate seat in the great state of Alabama (we know the state is great because right now they're on the brink of electing a man currently being accused of sexual misconduct against women as young as 14 as their next senator).

Kimmel hit back by referencing the allegations against Moore: "OK Roy, but I'm leaving my daughters at home!"

Speaking from a pulpit at Magnolia Springs Baptist Church in Theodore, Alabama, Wednesday night, Moore said "they" are promoting a false and malicious narrative in order to keep his conservative Christian views out of politics.

Kimmel responded by tweeting: "Sounds great Roy - let me know when you get some Christian values and I'll be there!"

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore says liberals, socialists, and members of the LGBT community are pushing a narrative of sexual misconduct accusations against him, BuzzFeed News reports. "They've tried unsuccessfully to change that".

Trump has yet to offer an explicit endorsement of Moore, but has appeared to offer support, telling reporters last week "we don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat" and saying Democratic candidate Doug Jones would be a "puppet" of Democratic leaders if elected.

Like Moore, Trump has also faced several allegations of sexual misconduct.

On Wednesday, Moore doubled down on proclaiming his innocence. They're the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender [individuals] who want to change our culture.

The women accuse Moore of making several unwanted phone calls in an attempt to solicit a romantic relationship, as well as inappropriately touching and kissing them.

Moore said he believes his prosecution of drug cases when he was a district attorney angered certain people, and that this is at "the heart of this conspiracy" against him.

Alabama's special Senate election is December 12.
