Speaking on ‘America Now’ Wednesday, host Buck Sexton weighed-in on the escalating controversy surrounding GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore, saying the current scandal will ultimately boil-down to his handwritten note and who the public believes.
“It seemed like, when they called for a press conference at 5 o’clock, that Moore might be stepping down. That was the rumor, but clearly that is not what happened. In fact, Moore went in the opposite direction, and his team has said, ‘No Way,’” said Buck.
“This all turns on whether or not that handwriting was Roy Moore’s. If he lied about that, what you’re saying is that it matters more for a Republican to have that seat than to send a message about morality and ethics in our political system,” he added.
“If the handwriting is found to be [fake] and there’s real questions about the authenticity of that note, then somebody is going to have a lot of explaining to do,” Sexton said. “We have a lot of accusers, and a lot of people coming out saying that Roy Moore was dating young women, and when he was asked whether he dated them, he said he never dated anyone without their parent’s permission. This is not a strong defense.”
“These are very serious allegations, and I do think there are limits –even in our bare-knuckle all in political environment- there are limits to what any of us should be willing to accept from a politician,” he added.
