Living in Kentucky, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a hero in the eyes of many locals, but then, I’m not a local and McConnell is more of a turncoat, traitor and ineffective leader of the Republican Party in the Senate. Yes, I voted for him over his Democratic challengers, but I doubt I’ll be able to vote for him again after his double standard betrayal of a fellow Republican.
Sen. Al Franken is now facing 5 sexual allegations with photographic proof of at least one instance and McConnell has said little about taking an action against Franken.
However, it seems that at least 4 of women making accusations against Roy Moore have no proof and that their actions are politically motivated, and yet McConnell continues to say he will oust Moore from the Senate if he wins the special election.
(Breitbart) – Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) discussed the U.S. Senate special election in Alabama scheduled for December 12 and what impact GOP hopeful Roy Moore could have if he emerges as the winner.
McConnell did not go as far as to say the U.S. Senate would vote to expel Moore should he be elected, but he did predict Moore could have an “ethic issues,” and the “aftermath” of his successful bid would be dealt with after voters go to the polls.
Partial transcript as follows:
INGRAHAM: The Alabama Senate race is taking up a lot of oxygen in the political landscape. He is up now in the polls 5 percent. You favored Luther Strange. A lot of money went into supporting Luther Strange. He didn’t win. Roy Moore won. I actually supported Mo Brooks. But Roy Moore won. And now all these allegations against him. You said he should step aside. He may very well win this election. What does that say about four influence in the Senate your influence? Does it have any implication for you? He wants to unseat you, he said…
I do believe in the American judicial system of innocent until proven guilty. Franken has been proven guilty and McConnell’s inaction speaks volumes. Moore should still be presumed innocent since none of his accusers has yet to produce any evidence that backs up their allegations, and McConnell has been very vocal against Moore, convicting him without any evidence. The chief lawmaker is violating the lawful rights of Moore and therefore should be stripped of his powers and position in the Senate.
