Reaction to Roy Moore allegations

For Immediate Release - Thursday November 9, 2017

The Libertarian Party of Alabama reacts to the allegations of sexual misconduct by Republican Candidate Roy Moore.

The Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Alabama, Leigh Lachine, made the following statement regarding the recent allegations of misconduct by Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore:

"We believe that our candidate, Ron Bishop, would better represent the values of the people of Alabama. Ron and the Libertarian Party of Alabama are the true voices of limited government.

Roy Moore is unfit to serve as a representative of the great state of Alabama. He has never hesitated to use religion for personal political gain. Now that his reprehensible past behavior has come to light, it only underscores his contempt for the rule of law that has twice removed him from the bench.

Republican leadership has asked Roy Moore to step down as a candidate for US Senate, with talk that they will instead advocate for a handpicked write-in candidate. We don't need Mitch McConnell to pick our next Senator. Alabamians can instead pick their own write-in candidate, Ron Bishop.

The other alternative is Doug Jones, who does not represent the small government values of most Alabamians. In a recent ad, he talks about his loyalty to the constitution, yet supports the unconstitutional Individual Mandate and supports the same tax-and-spend regulatory state that has dragged down our economy and well being for decades.

We are being presented with bad choices. We could choose a man who is morally unfit to serve as our representative or a different one provided by the establishment Republicans and Democrats.

I say we should reject both and instead write-in Ron Bishop, the choice for freedom and limited government."  Leigh Lachine
