Alabamas' racist homophobic Roy Moore, twice kicked off the Alabama Supreme Court for breaking the law and ignoring the US Supreme Court, is now the frontrunner to be Alabama Senator:

Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore Uses Racist Terms In Campaign Speech +
International Business Times | Tue Sep 19, 2017 10:12 UTC

Roy Moore, the frontrunner in Alabama's GOP Senate runoff, allegedly used racially insensitive language to refer to Native Americans and Asians during a campaign speech Sunday, reports said. In the speech recorded on camera, the former chief justice of the Roy Moore, the frontrunner in Alabama's GOP Senate runoff, allegedly used racially insensitive language to refer to Native Americans and Asians during a campaign speech Sunday, reports said. In the speech recorded on camera, the former chief justice of the state's highest court referred to “reds and yellows” — racial slurs that likely referred to Native Americans and Asian Americans — and said: "We were torn apart in the Civil War - brother against brother, north against south, party against party. What changed." According to the footage obtained by the Hill, he added: "Now we have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting, Democrats and Republicans fighting, men and women fighting. What’s going to unite us? What’s going to bring us back together? A president? A congress? No. It’s going to be God."...In 1992, he became a judge of the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit of Alabama and served this position until his election as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2000. Moore was removed from office in 2003 after he insisted on displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. Moore was re-elected by a vote of the people as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in November 2012 and took office in January 2013, according to Moore's official website. In 2016, he was again removed from office because he refused to enforce the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage rights...Moore implied during a speech to a church congregation in February that the 9/11 terror attacks could have been caused because the United States lacked faith in religion and had separated itself from God.

The pathetic and scary part about Moore is not only is he a blatant racist and homophobe, and a lawyer who on multiple occasions as a judge defied orders of the US Supreme Court and subverted the Constitution, but that a majority  of Alabama voters keep electing this evil hateful man, which shows their own racism, contempt for the constitution, and homophobia.

Alabama's voters make their state a complete national laughing stock, again:

Roy Moore Wins Alabama Senate GOP Primary Runoff, Defeating Trump-Backed Incumbent

CNN Wire

Roy Moore, the bombastic evangelical Christian who was twice ousted as Alabama’s chief justice, has beaten Sen. Luther Strange in a Republican primary, CNN projected Tuesday. Moore’s win is sending shockwaves through the GOP establishment — including at the White House, where President Donald Trump had poured his own political capital into helping Strange survive. The race to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions has tested whether Trump’s endorsement and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s allies’ money can carry Strange into a December matchup against Democratic nominee Doug Jones. Anti-establishment Republicans have viewed Moore — ousted twice as state Supreme Court chief justice but revered among social conservatives for his anti-LGBT views and his advocacy for Christianity in public life — as the true heir to Trump’s campaign. “Judge Roy Moore was deplorable before it was cool to be deplorable,” 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said in Alabama last week. Steve Bannon, the former Trump White House chief strategist-turned-Moore advocate, will be on hand for his election night party in Montgomery.

Overnight Trump committed a serious crime.   Since federal law requires a President NOT to destroy communications, his overnight act of deleting his pro-Strange tweets was illegal.

What sickens me about this election is that it was an open election...democrats and independents could vote in this primary in an effort to stop Moore from beating Strange.  If they are gambling that Moore will be easier to beat in the general by the D candidate, I have grave doubts.
