Editor’s Note: Romney nor any current or recent Congressman or Senator is half the man Judge Roy Moore is. The globalists elites in America FEAR Judge Roy Moore because he is a giant compared to any of them. Judge Roy Moore has the conviction and the understanding to BRING THEM DOWN and they know it. If Washington D.C. has a chance for redemption it lies with God’s “remnant” with Judge Roy Moore leading the charge by way of the U.S. Senate. The GODLY WILL BE VINDICATED, and God will be honored.

Another prominent Republican is calling on Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the impending race amid allegations that he sexually abused a 14 year old when he was a 32-year-old prosecutor.
2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney tweeted his unequivocal opinion that Moore, a former Alabama Supreme Court judge, should “step aside” in the race to fill the seat vacated when Jeff Sessions became attorney general.
Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.

The former Massachusetts governor was hardly the only Republican to speak out against the allegations first published in a Washington Post report Thursday.
According to Leigh Corfman, Moore attempted to have sex with her and drove her to his home on two separate occasions.
On the second visit, she said he took off her clothes and touched her over her underwear, forcing her to do the same to him.
A total of four women told the Post that Moore attempted to initiate a relationship with them when they were teens.
Shortly after the allegations began to spread, Arizona Sen. John McCain issued a statement similar to Romney’s tweet.
McCain called the allegations “deeply disturbing and disqualifying,” according to The Hill.
“He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of,” McCain said.
Other prominent Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have also called on Moore to exit the race, though most have included the additional caveat that he should do so only if the accusations are accurate.
As The Western Journal previously reported, the brewing controversy has received a response similar to the lines from White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“Like most Americans, the president believes we cannot allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person’s life,” she said Friday.
She went on to say that Trump, who is in the middle of an Asia trip and was headed to Vietnam at the time, “believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside.”
The Moore campaign denied the allegations in a statement released by Moore campaign chair Bill Armistead on Thursday, blaming the scandal on alleged political bias at the Post.
“The Washington Post has already endorsed the Judge’s opponent,” Armistead suggested in the statement. “And for months, they have engaged in a systematic campaign to distort the truth about the Judge’s record and career and derail his campaign.”
The election to fill Sessions’ senate seat will be held Dec. 12.
