Even Burr and Tillis telling Roy Moore it’s time to go

The Alabama special Senate election is four weeks from today and the walls appear to be closing in on Roy Moore. Today, even North Carolina’s usually-late-to-the-party senators weighed in to call for his withdrawal in light of revelations about alleged sexual misconduct.

This is from a story on in Charlotte:

“North Carolina’s two U.S. Senators have joined a growing group of Republican colleagues in Congress calling on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to withdraw from the race.

Their statements came after a fifth woman accused Moore of sexual misconduct when she was a 16-year-old waitress in the 1970s.  In a Twitter post, Thom Tillis called the allegations against Moore ‘disturbing,’ and said he should immediately drop out of the race.

The Raleigh News & Observer reported that Richard Burr’s office issued a statement saying he thinks Moore should ‘do the right thing and withdraw.'”

Good for Burr and Tillis for speaking up, though one wishes that: a) they’d done so earlier given Moore’s reprehensible record in countless other areas in his public life, and b) they’d muster the courage to take a similar stand vis a vis another certain serial prevaricator and part-time sexual predator who occupies an even higher office in our nation’s capital.
