The White House appears to be continuing to endorse Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, despite the fact that nine women have accused Moore of sexually harassing or assaulting them when they were teenagers. The New Yorker reports Moore was banned from a local mall and a YMCA in Alabama because he repeatedly badgered teenage girls, in some cases soliciting sex from young girls. This is senior White House aide Kellyanne Conway bashing Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones, in an interview with Fox News.

Kellyanne Conway: “Jones in Alabama—folks, don’t be fooled—he’ll be a vote against tax cuts. He’s weak on crime, weak on borders. He’s strong on raising your taxes. He’s terrible for property owners.”

Brian Kilmeade: “So, vote Roy Moore?”

Kellyanne Conway: “And Doug Jones is a doctrinaire liberal, which is why he’s not saying anything and why the media are trying to boost him.”

Brian Kilmeade: “So, vote Roy Moore?”

Kellyanne Conway: “I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax—this tax bill through.”
