Calling the recent child molestation accusations a “desperate political attack,” far-right Christian folk hero Roy Moore assures his supporters that he’ll continue his run for Senate

Well, it looks like I was right a few days ago, when, channeling my inner Johnnie Cochran, I proclaimed, “Where there are four, you know there are more.” This afternoon, an Alabama woman by the name of Beverly Young-Nelson came forward to announce that she too had been sexually assaulted by Republican Senate candidate Roy […]

Today, Republican Senators Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska announced on the floor of the Senate that they would not be voting to confirm President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
