Opinion by Naiya Warren

 

Although President Trump supported Roy Moore, who has been accused by at least eight women of sexual misconduct and assault (including child molestation), it turns out that the majority of Alabama did not. His competitor, Doug Jones, won by 1.54%. In a tweet by Roy Moore, he says that Trump said to “Go get ’em, Roy!” Moore also says that he “Just got off the phone with President Trump who offered his full support and said he needs a fighter to help him in the US Senate.”

 

Roy Moore, being the Republican competitor, has very conservative values. He believes that homosexuality should be illegal, and Muslims should not serve in Congress. One woman, Leigh Corfman, said that she was 14 when Moore approached her as a 32- year old assistant district attorney. There have been other claims of alleged inappropriate behavior, the most detailed being on the Washington Post (published on November 9, 2017 by Stephanie McCrummen, Beth Reinhard, and Alice Crites).

Doug Jones, the Democratic competitor, could be called a polar opposite from Moore. Jones is best known for successfully prosecuting members of the Ku Klux Klan over the 1963 Birmingham Church bombing. Jones is pro- choice and pro LGBT rights.

The election for the Alabama representative for the United States Senate occurred on December 12 and although Moore lost, he still hasn’t conceded. Moore has demanded a recount of the votes. According to the CNN News Poll, 57% of women, 96% of black voters, and 60% of young voters voted for Jones.

Trump came out after Moore lost and said that “Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!” (Twitter, December 13).

In my opinion, it will provide a nice balance to have a Democratic- influenced Senator, to counter the large quantity of Republican senators.
