Republican National Committeewoman Joyce Simmons has had enough. The Nebraska Republican pulled the rip chord and formally resigned over her party’s decision to continue sending money in support of Alabama Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate (and accused child molester, teen predator) Roy Moore.
In the letter below, she notes that she wishes she could continue to serve the “national Republican Party that I used to know well.” Past tense. This Republican party is unrecognizable to many, virtually inconceivable that so many are standing by Roy Moore, not just amid allegations he preyed on teenage girls, but his longstanding un-American views on church & state and his promotion of hateful ideals, including his desire to see homosexuality outlawed all together. In fact, in a 2011 radio interview, Roy Moore said getting rid of amendments after 10th would “eliminate many problems.” What would Moore get rid of?
The 13th abolished slavery.
The 15th gave all races the vote.
The 19th gave women the vote.
The 24th abolished poll taxes. https://t.co/QZwuTzlrdO
