For the first time since the 2017 Special US Senate race, Judge Roy Moore made a rare appearance to a group of Republicans in Montgomery on Tuesday.
Moore didn’t speak during the meeting, but was there to hear the candidates.
“So many people go to the ballot booth, they look at the ballot, [and] they don’t know anybody running,” Moore said. “But if you come to these things, you can learn what they stand for or at least they tell you what they stand for.”
Aside from Tuesday’s meeting, Moore is currently involved in a lawsuit with his accusers of sexual misconduct. He’s suing Leigh Corfman, Debbie Gibson, Tina Johnson and Beverly Nelson for libel and slander.
“I’m trying to bring out the truth of what happened,” Moore said. “It’s kind of obvious when it’s 30 days before an election and some people come up and say you did something 40 years ago you didn’t do.”
Moore still maintains his innocence and calls the allegations by the women a political conspiracy.
“Well I knew it was wrong and I knew it was false,” Moore said. “It hurt my family and it hurt me, it was political and that’s what it was.”
Many people in Alabama are speculating about whether or not he will run for governor as an independent.
“I don’t think we’re going to run in this race, in the future I may change my mind and run for something else,” Moore said.
