Roy Moore just lost the Alabama Senate Special Election race to Democrat Doug Jones. Moore’s run was full of controversy around his racist views, and more notoriously, his alleged sexual predator past. There have been numerous allegations that Roy Moore liked to ‘prey’ on young girls, some as young as 12, so much of Alabama is glad to see he was not elected.
However, many are calling for Roy Moore to be investigated, especially as new quotes are being leaked. One of Roy Moore’s campaign aides leaked to various news outlets that Moore was planning on lowering the age of consent to 12, here’s a quote from his aide:
“He was very adamant that the age of consent ‘shouldn’t be this high’. I remember once he said ‘These girls are growing up so fast, they should be able to make their own decisions’.”
The country will need to wait and see if Roy Moore will fade into the distance, or if the controversy that caused him the election will keep haunting him into the future.
