“U.S. Senator John McCain has already done the right thing and called for Moore to withdraw as from the Senate race in Alabama.
“Ted Cruz and John Cornyn, along with Governor Abbott, Lt. Governor Patrick and many other Texas Republican leaders regularly defend their policy positions and political actions on moral grounds. Failure by any of them to publicly condemn Roy Moore and join Senator McCain in calling for his withdrawal as a U.S. Senate candidate exposes rank hypocrisy.
“Cruz, Cornyn, Abbott and the others have already accepted gross sexual abuse of women by Donald Trump. Greg Abbott accepted sexual predator Ted Nugent as his ‘blood brother.’ If they now condone the abuse of a 14-year-old girl, none of them can any longer claim moral authority on any matter.”
