VOMIT ALERT: Alabama Governor Interviews Roy Moore To Replace Jeff Sessions In The US Senate

Prepare to vomit. The Montgomery Advertiser reports:

Gov. Robert Bentley’s office said Wednesday the governor interviewed four candidates this week to replace U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, including suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore. In addition to Moore, Bentley interviewed U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville; Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh, R-Anniston and Republican Sens. Arthur Orr of Decatur and Cam Ward of Alabaster.

Kayla Moore, the chief justice’s wife, confirmed the interview in an email, saying it took place Tuesday. “He would consider it an honor if appointed to the office of U. S. Senate,” she wrote. President-elect Donald Trump will nominate Sessions for attorney general when he begins his term next month. Bentley will appoint Sessions’ successor and schedule a special election for the seat following the appointment.

Yasamie August, a spokeswoman for Bentley, said in an email Wednesday that Moore – suspended in September over an order telling probate judges they had a “ministerial duty” not to issue same-sex marriage licenses – was “one of the top picks” in a survey sent to more than 400 members of the Alabama Republican Executive Committee last month.

You’ll recall that earlier this year “sanctity of marriage” champion Bentley was exposed for having made highly sexual phone calls to his female assistant, who is less than half his age. That revelation was made several months after Bentley’s wife of 50 years filed for divorce on the grounds of adultery. Bentley later declared that God has forgiven him for the pornographic phone calls. And by the way, he was sworn into office by Roy Moore.

  • PickyPecker

    Senate or SCOTUS…..Senate or SCOTUS. Hmmm.

    • Paula

      He would worry me more on SCOTUS than in the Senate.

  • Paula

    Can you even imagine? At the very least, he would be out of Alabama. Him replacing Sessions wouldn’t be much of a change. I don’t think he is a smart as Sessions.

    • Mark

      he’s got way too much heaven on his mind.

  • Jamie_Johnson

    Even more reason for the Democrats to filibuster Sessions.

    Oh, who am I kidding. The Democrats won’t filibuster anyone.

    • The Return of Traxley

      They’ll send a nicely-worded letter politely expressing their concerns and would they please reconsider this decision, thank you for your attention in this matter.

  • Lazycrockett

    Maddow has talked bout this numerous times, should be an interesting show tonight.

  • Todd20036

    Really not surprised at this. The theofascists are now empowered.

    They don’t give a crap about law.

    I can see many unconstitutional laws being created, and taking years to undo by SCOTUS

    • matrem

      Presuming a SCOTUS that favors those laws isn’t put in place. Then we’re forever fucked

      • Frostbite

        I don’t have to presume. I’m sure a SCOTUS favoring every Rightwing wet dream will be in place before Trump is out.

        • BobSF_94117

          Supreme Republican Court of the United States.

          SCROTUS (dyslexic spelling)

        • Steverino

          Assuming the Tangerine Twat gets to appoint and get confirmed at least two theofascist seats on the Supreme Court, does anybody think they will be content having a red state sue to overturn Obergefell, and be successful? Oh, no- coming also will be the House passing DOMA 2.0, and assuming the Senate follows suit and Hair Furor signs it into law, it would be only a matter of time before some gay or lesbian married couple files suit for unconstitutionality, where it would go all the way to SCOTUS, and they would uphold the new DOMA also, just as they would overturn Obergefell, saying they both were “incorrectly decided.”

          • McSwagg

            If they can make that happen, they won’t stop with Obergefell. They’ll aim to overturn Lawrence and declare us all criminals once again. The Democrats MUST hold the line on SCOTUS appointments.

      • The Return of Traxley

        I’m still holding out hope that Obama gets his red up and convinces Ginsberg and Breyer to retire ASAP, and appoints their replacements, along with Garner within the next three weeks.

        I want ambushes. Lots and lots of them.

  • Ninja0980

    Anyone who replaces Session will be a far right asshole.
    Better to be one we know then one we don’t.

  • Chucktech

    Just what we need: More god-bothering in Congress…

    Moore god-bothering in Congress, no less…

  • Jack

    What! Not on the Supreme Court?

    • Ninja0980

      Too old.

        • Paula

          Don’t forget fugly.

      • Paula

        Is there a limit or is it they think he might be too old?

        • Ninja0980

          Anyone past 60.
          They want people in their 50’s or younger.
          That way they can be on SCOTUS for 30-40 years just like Scalia and Reinquist were.

          • Paula

            And Scalia is still dead!

      • JCF

        SERIOUSLY. Even here in Bluest California, Clinton *barely* won in my area (Greater Sacratomato). Obviously: the downtown areas had lower than average, whereas all the hicks in the Valley & Foothills voted in number. WTFrellingFeck??? This is CALIFORNIA!!! We don’t have voter suppression laws here, we have an extensive history minority (now, PLURALITY, ie Latinos) voting/office-holders. Why don’t people—thinking, BLUE people—VOTE???? Dammit! >:-0

      I’m glad my ancestors moved west in 1836.

      • Jerry

        I’m guessing, since you’re here, that they didn’t go to the Alamo in 1836.

        • William

          They arrived in central Texas in 1838. Part of their original land grant is still owned by a relative.

      • JCF

        Mine were more about 1936. [Dad: Kansas to California. Mom: Virginia to California. They met in Berzerkley! (In the local Episcopal church: and you wonder why I’m such a fan? 😉 )]

        • William

          One of my grandfathers went to California during the Depression. He was one of the Okies.

      • Jay George

        My ancestors moved west too. Unfortunately they came from Georgia (in a covered wagon as the story goes) and got to west Alabama and said, “this is far enough.” I come from a long line of proud underachievers…

        • William

          The group that came as far as Texas started out in the Carolinas. They moved to northern Alabama and stayed a few years. For whatever reason, they sold their land and headed for Texas. Some of the family quit at Mississippi and stayed there.

    Not really O/T: Ted Cruz to introduce FADA legislation “to protect the rights of any entities refusing service to LGBT persons based upon the beliefs that 1) marriage is between a man and a woman and 2) sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage.”

    • m_lp_ql_m

      I love how this is worded. It’s no longer about “religious belief” as that’s too nebulous and can backfire. This is more specific, based on those 2 points.

      • William

        Can we still refuse to serve anyone who has been divorced or had premarital sex?

        • IamM

          seems only fair.

        Yeah, and they’re certainly not going to waste any time doing it.

    Nothing but filthy, despicable snakes. Every single one of them. If we still have an election in 2020, whoever beats Trump’s ass needs to just be fucking merciless. Imprison them all. Oppress them as they oppressed us. No “high road” bullshit anymore. I’m so fucking beyond sick of that.

  • BobSF_94117

    Yes, vomit. BUT AL is going to appoint a Republican anyway, and I can’t think of anyone more annoying than Moore. I think his GOP Senate colleagues would hate him, almost as much as they hate Ted Cruz. So I say, go for it!

    • I can only think of Sen. Rob Portman r, OH whose son is gay.

      • BobSF_94117

        I don’t mean anything gay-related. Moore is just an unpleasant person to work with/around.

  • NancyP

    There may be a plus to the loonies being appointed. The theocrats can get some legislation passed that affects straight Americans – removing the requirement that insurance companies pay for birth control (considered preventive health care by the ACA, just like Pap smears and colonoscopies), requiring that insurance companies never pay for birth control, doing either of these while still paying for Viagra-other ED drugs. Now that insured women have gotten used to having these birth control discounts (low co-pay) for the duration of Obamacare, it will be considered offensive to take the bc benefits away. You know that the theocrats consider most of the most effective reversible forms of bc to be abortion and therefore to be banned.

    They will try to over-reach, and could well be successful. The Dems would need to spread a rumor about, and actually put out a strongly worded amendment to the proposed anti-ACA bill, providing coverage of all forms of birth control (pill, patch, IUD, implantable long-acting – all the hormonal based ones are considered to be abortifacients by the theocrats). It would be guaranteed to be voted down. American couples are not going to look fondly on politicians who say they have to shell out extra for common popular birth control methods. The only choices considered ok by the theocrats are the diaphragm (prescribed and fitted by an MD or other medical professional, hence in the category of “could be covered by insurance”), condoms (OTC, never paid for by insurance), withdrawal, and rhythm.

    • NancyP

      The other way the theocrats could annoy ordinary straight white people would be for for-profit employers to use the Hobby Lobby case to discriminate against unmarried mothers, any mother of young children, require all employees to do group prayer, require clergymen to provide one of the references, etc. Nowadays people often sign away their right to sue the employer for discrimination or any other cause including workplace injury – apparently this requirement for company-selected arbitration is becoming boilerplate in employment contracts.

  • Richard B

    The Alabama governor, who is currently being investigated for improper behavior and malfeasance in office and is facing impeachment hearings wants to appoint to the US Senate the looney disgrace twice removed from office supreme court chief justice for improperly mixing religious beliefs into his legal interpretation of the law. This is the same state who’s speaker of the house is going to jail for corruption and elected infamous white supremacist and bigot Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions to represent the state of Alabama to the United States Senate.
    This poor state always wear religion as a badge of honor, but instead of excelling, always distinguishes themselves to be in a race for last place.

  • Helen Damnation 🍑™

    Methinks this is all dog’n’pony. “Luv Guv” Bentley will appoint himself to the vacated senate seat, that’s assuming Sessions will be confirmed. Alabama progressive journalist Roger Shuler (and wife Carol) have lost their lives: their home, jobs, all of their belongings, due to Roger’s brave and fearless writings about the corrupt Republicans in Alabama. Read more about Roger’s outing of the crooked politicians, including William “BadPuppy” Pryor (Trump’s top SCOTUS pick) on his blog:
