Senate Group Cuts Funding Ties To Roy Moore

The Daily Beast reports:

A day after explosive allegations of sexual assault surfaced against Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore, the Republican Party’s senate campaign arm has severed financial ties with the embattled former state supreme court justice.

A joint fundraising committee benefitting Moore and a handful of Republican Party organs filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Friday removing the National Republican Senatorial Committee as one of its beneficiaries.

Going forward, the committee’s fundraising will benefit Moore’s Senate campaign, the Alabama Republican Party, and the Republican National Committee but not the NRSC.

    They really don’t want him in the Senate.

    • GayOldLady

      They didn’t want him in the Senate before this happened.

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        That’s why I do, in a perverse sort of way.

        • GayOldLady

          Now Johnny, that’s a bad perversion and you need to quit it. 🙂

          • Johnny Wyeknot

            Certainly one of my least fun ones ..,

    • Treant

      If this doesn’t take him down, maybe we can expect more allegations to mysteriously appear at the Washington Post office with a return address identical to the RNC…

      • Paula

        That was my thought. Perhaps. the repubs are behind this. It would be better to have a Dem than Roy Moore.

    • Tawreos

      He thinks he speaks for god and that does not make it likely that he will listen to the money men that control the GOP and that makes him a problem.

    • GeneInSJ

      The establishment Republicans hate him almost as much as we do.

      And if this scandal is a lie, well, he’ll know how Hillary felt.

    • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

      It’s one thing I’ll agree with them on.

    • JCF

      No, they really don’t want Moore to REPRESENT the GOP, in every Democratic ad from here on out!

      • David L. Caster

        Exactly. The GOP has suddenly become aware of their own political odor.

    • teeveedub

      Perhaps it’s also that they secretly believe Moore’s victims and are afraid that more evidence will be revealed to confirm their allegations. What would Republican senators’ chances for re-election be if their opponents can point to their support of Moore? The opponents’ TV ads would practically write themselves.

  • crewman

    Moore is such a total asshole and child molester. He flaunts the law and lies with a glee. How did Trump not back him?

    They did the same with Todd Akin yet started giving him $$$ towards the end of his Senate Campaign.
    I don’t trust any of these guys/gals for squat.

    • GayOldLady

      They’re trying to get their imprimatur off the stink.

    • AlternativeQuacks

      Moore has actually been using the Washington Post story for fundraising.

      Alabama!

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Politics =not= trust

  • Tawreos

    Ouch, that is hitting a republican where it hurts the most. I think this is a good development.

  • Judas Peckerwood

    When you’re too icky for the GOP establishment…

  • Treant

    That’s nice. Call me when the Alabama Republican Party cuts all funding, as well as the RNC.

    At this point, they’re just introducing a separate layer between their money and Roy Moore, and it gets there anyway–it just takes longer and more gets grifted off at each step.

  • HZ81

    Why? He’s a family values child molester, libtards!

    • another_steve

      Donald Trump – a fellow molester — agrees.

  • another_steve

    Alabama Republicans should secede from the United States.

    Can they do that?

    • Tawreos

      They are welcome to leave. I hear the island from Lost is available and lovely this time of year.

    • Grumpy Old Man

      They and their friends already tried that – it did not go well for them.

    Throw Alabama in to the gulf of mexico.

      I understand your feelings, PR, but the Gulf has suffered enuf. Maybe Russia will buy it (Alabama) Package deal including drumph. NO questions asked!!

      We love you, nice Alabamians.

      We feel your pain.

        And those who read Al.com.

      • Tawreos

        “…the nice Alabamians who read and comment here”

        Are there any Alabamans that read and don’t comment here?

          Isn’t a criminal offence if they find you can read AND write in Alabama?

      Just as Donald Trump has made Bush the Idiot from Texas seem, in comparison, like a statesman, a Senator Moore will make Senator Cruz seem like a sane and decent man.

        To save you some time, here’s part of the breathless account at GP. You can’t get much more authoritative than this:

        A Navy veteran who served 22 years for his country and then served in the Secret Service claims a family friend who lives in Alabama told his wife that a Washington Post reporter “named Beth” approached her and offered her THOUSANDS to accuse Judge Roy Moore of inappropriate sexual advances!

          if you ever see 100$ or the date as 21/11/17 that post was not written by an American

    Since this guy is my Rep, let me just say for most of these folks, “moderate” means we won’t say out loud the things about abortion, LGBT rights, worker rights etc. that our colleagues in areas like Alabama, Idaho, Oklahoma can say.
    The only true moderates mentioned in this article were both former reps to the north of me, Sherwood Boehlert and Richard Hanna, the latter of whom has been very, very vocal about what has happened to the Republican Party here in NY and has been called a traitor for daring to do so.
    Katko is a right wing hack, and one whom will likely be voted out next year if what happened in NY on Tuesday night is any indication.

        If you ignore the predatory capitalism, the flip-flopping, the lying, the occasional sociopathic decision-making, Rmoney occasionally has a flicker of pseudo-decency. And he’s gearing up for a Senate race, so there are appearances to start constructing.

    I’ve read Joe’s quote several times as well as the entire article. I just don’t see it.

    It looks to me as though a local committee that’s backing Moore has actually cut off funding to the RNC’s senate fundraising entity.

    Maybe someone can clarify.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      Yeah, in reality, it just means Moore-lovers and Alabama Goopers are keeping more of their own money.

      The FU is from Alabama politicos and aimed towards the “Establishment” Republican Party, with the NRSC now being cut off from the sweet tea of Alabammy-centered rapey cash. Not sure how it hurts Moore at all, unless NRSC money was flowing his way previously (perhaps matching funds?).

    Someone really should go to the public Library in Birmingham and look at the microfilms from the local paper in the late ’70s. Get the names of reporters on the local beat back them from the masthead or story bylines. Contact them and ask them if they heard rumors about Moore and teenagers back in the day.

    I’m sure a juicy follow-up story is just waiting to be told.

  • TominDC

    I wonder – can McConnell/Schumer refuse to let someone caucus with them?

    Not that I expect the republicans will be principled enough to do that should Moore win, but it’s nice to think that it could happen.
