Roy Moore: ‘I’m going to take off some gloves and show the truth in this campaign’


HENAGAR, Ala. (WIAT) — In a speech to voters Monday, Roy Moore again denied any allegations of misconduct but did not take questions from reporters.

Moore talked with Republicans in Henagar for about a half an hour. After a lighthearted joke, Moore told supporters that it has been an election full of “dirty politics.”

“We’ve seen malicious, false attacks which reflect the immorality of our time,” said Moore.

It has been almost two weeks since the U.S. Senate candidate has spoken publically. He told voters that he’s fighting a spiritual battle.

Moore said he is the candidate who will fight for conservative values that he believes are under attack in Washington D.C.

Moore’s accusers are sticking to their stories. Some have questioned the timing of the allegations, now mentioned in an ad for Democratic challenger Doug Jones.

“I know the seriousness of charges like this, and they should be serious if it’s happened. When a young lady is abused, and I have represented many victims in cases such as this. I have not seen one who wants her picture posted on national TV, especially on a political advertisement, the truth is, this is not really odd at all, this is simply dirty politics,” said Moore.

While some voters still have questions for Moore, others who did not vote for him in the primary, will support him in December.

“I tend to believe him until otherwise and if he has done some of these things then I would support a person who prosecuted it,” said Benny West.

With two weeks until the special election, one of Moore’s closing comments hinted it will be a busy time.

“I have not run one negative ad, but I’m going to take off some gloves and show the truth in this campaign,” said Moore.

Moore’s campaign representatives told CBS 42 that he will continue to hit the trail over the next two weeks to talk about issues like immigration, healthcare, and tax reform.

The election is December 12th.
