Susan Collins: ‘Too Early’ to Say What to Do on Al Franken and I Hope Voters Don’t Elect Roy Moore

‘I think we’re getting ahead of ourselves and I hope that the voters of Alabama choose not to elect [Moore]’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

COLLINS: "It’s too early for me to say what the ethics committee recommendation would be, and obviously I came out against Roy Moore very early. In fact, before these terrible allegations were levied against him because I was concerned about his performance as a member of the Alabama supreme Court. He had been removed twice for failing to follow lawful orders and also because of his comments on muslims and lgbt individuals. So these allegations are extremely disturbing, but under the Constitution, the test on whether or not you seat someone is whether they satisfied the age and residency requirements, so we would have to seat him, but I hope we don’t get there. I think we’re getting ahead of ourselves and I hope that the voters of Alabama choose not to elect him."
