According to The Washington Post, Republican President Donald Trump this week gave a “full-throated re-endorsement of U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama, giving political cover to a man accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, including one who says he touched her when she was 14.”

“Many Republican leaders followed him — or didn’t protest. The Republican National Committee, which withdrew support three weeks ago with Trump’s consent, is now helping the campaign again. Even Senate leaders, among the strongest voices calling for Moore to step away from the race, dealt with the strategy shift with quiet resignation.”

“The only Republicans actively opposing the president’s moves find themselves on the margins. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney warned Monday that Moore in the Senate would ‘be a stain on the GOP and on the nation.’ Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has announced he will not run for reelection, wrote a $100 check to Democrat Doug Jones, Moore’s opponent. ‘Country over party,’ Flake wrote on the check.”
