Democratic Nominee For Alabama U.S. Senate Seat Doug Jones Tears Into Opponent Roy Moore: ‘Men Who Hurt Little Girls Should Go to Jail’

DREW ANGERER/GETTY

One day after President Trump officially endorsed accused child molester Roy Moore in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race, the Democratic nominee absolutely tore into the ex-judge. After months of remaining relatively even-handed in contrast to Moore’s bizarre antics (including toting a rifle on-stage), Doug Jones told a crowd Tuesday afternoon: “When you see me with a gun, I’ll be climbing in and out of a deer blind… not prancing around on a stage in a cowboy suit.” He emphasized that Moore, who was twice removed from office as an Alabama State Supreme Court justice, has “never, ever served our state with honor.” And Jones concluded by going straight for the jugular on the bevy of accusations that Moore engaged in sexual misconduct with underage girls when he was in his 30s: “Men who hurt little girls should go to jail and not the United States Senate.” (The line was also an apparent reference to the fact that Jones prosecuted two Ku Klux Klan members who killed four young black girls in a 1963 church bombing.)
