    Meet the Senator from Alabama who preceded Jeff Sessions
    and voted against Sessions' 1986 appointment by then-president Reagan to federal district court judge -- Howell Heflin, Democratic senator from Alabama, 1979 to 1997:

    from Heflin's March 30, 2005 NYT obit:

    WASHINGTON, March 29 - Former Senator Howell Heflin of Alabama, a conservative Democrat who supported civil rights legislation and was sometimes described as the conscience of the Senate, died on Tuesday at a hospital in Sheffield, Ala., near his home in Tuscumbia. He was 83.

    (snip)

    But in 1986, Mr. Heflin voted against a lawyer from his home state who had been nominated by President Ronald Reagan to be a federal district judge. Several civil rights groups opposed the lawyer, Jeff Sessions, on the ground that he had shown insensitivity to blacks while serving as the United States attorney in Mobile, Ala.

    The Judiciary Committee blocked the nomination. Mr. Heflin said he did not know whether Mr. Sessions would be "a fair and impartial judge." But the tables eventually turned. In 1996, Mr. Sessions, a Republican, won the Senate seat being vacated by Mr. Heflin, and he now serves on the Judiciary Committee.

    no I mean rinos. Besides you fascists still can't prove any thing, but as already PROVEN, many of your kind don't need any proof to ruin someone, as two scum admitted earlier.

    I wouldn’t let some 40yr old unsubstantiated allegations stop me from voting for a republican over a liberal democrat.

    Same here. Way too much time has passed for these accusation to move the needle... And the timing makes believing them, nearly impossible. As usual; the left has misjudged the cause, and effect of its campaigning strategy.

    Well, if Moore is gonna stay in the race, think this is gonna be his campaign song?



    And...............here's the lyrics if you're interested......................

    Thank Heaven for Little Girls
    Maurice Chevalier
    Each time I see a little girl
    Of five or six or seven
    I can't resist a joyous urge
    To smile and say
    Thank heaven for little girls
    For little girls get
    Bigger every day
    Thank heaven for little girls
    They grow up in
    The most delightful way.
    Those little eyes
    So helpless and appealing
    When they were flashing
    Send you crashing
    Through the ceiling
    Thank heaven for little girls
    Thank heaven for them all
    No matter where,
    No matter who
    Without them
    What would little boys do
    Thank heaven
    Thank heaven
    Thank heaven for little girls.

    It is a catastrophe for Deep State if guys like Roy Moore will siting in Senate. No True Born-Again Christians, No Bible Believers, only perverts, homo and satanists, than would be fine.
