Gov. Hogan Says Alabama GOP Candidate Roy Moore is ‘Unfit for Office,’ Criticizes His Defenders

Gov. Larry Hogan called Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore “unfit for office” on Saturday following sexual misconduct allegations made against Moore by four women.

Moore was the subject of a Washington Post article in which the women said he initiated relationships with them when they were teenagers in the 1970s and 1980s.

“Roy Moore’s defenders should ask themselves if they would be so quick to excuse him if the victim was their daughter or if the offender was a Democrat,” Hogan, a Republican, said in a statement, which he then tweeted. “He is unfit for office and should step aside. Americans are better than this.”
