Gallego on Moore: Republicans ‘Should Retract as Much Money from this Campaign’
GALLEGO: "I think they barely started. I have been, you know, impressed by some very strong actions, specifically from senator flake here in Arizona. But they need to do more. They need to demand that all the money they have put into his election be returned. I know they've already cut down the joint committee they were working on together, but actually they should just retract as much money from this campaign because essentially at this point they're helping a ped feel run for office. I don't think the Republican Party wants to be associated with somebody like that. At the same time, we have the alt-rights and the Steve bannons and the Sean hannitys of the world that are just going to make excuses for somebody like this, which, you know, is in my opinion a portion and an arm of the Republican Party. And they need to actually start taking some ownership and start realizing that they're supporting somebody who at some point was being a predator with underage women. It's just disgusting the lengths and excuses that Roy Moore is going through right now to justify the fact when he was in his mid-30s he was dating, quote, unquote, and I don't think you can date people that can't give you consent, women below the age of 18. Even if you don't take -- if even if you believe that he did not have a relationship with that young woman, the 14-year-old, he does admit he did with 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds. That's just disgusting. You know, that is predatory in nature and it is, you know, in any other case if this were a private citizen, we would be calling them a pedophile."
