Count Sheriff David Clarke is calling out the blatant hypocrisy of those demanding Roy Moore immediately end his senate candidacy.
Many, including two Republican presidential nominees preceding President Donald Trump, Arizona Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, have called on Moore to step aside whether or not he is guilty of sexual misconduct with a minor.
And Democrats are energized about the prospect of Moore being ousted from the race, which would all but guarantee the Alabama Senate seat that was presumably a Dem Party long-shot.
“Pardon me folks,” Clarke tweeted. “I must have missed the long list of prominent Democrats who called on Senator Menendez to step aside and resign after being not just accused but criminally CHARGED with political corruption If someone has that list, please direct me to it.”

The tweet was in response to a tweet sent by Romney in which he called on Moore to resign because “Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.”
Others joined in to question both the timing and the source of the allegations against Moore.
38yrs have passed? Not last month, last year or before?
Coincidentally timed just before an election. The reporting newspaper, WaPost, endorsed the Dem opponent.
Unethical Democrats brag about using these tactics just to win.https://t.co/MBIC4DO935

But the question does remain, where were Democrats asking former President Bill Clinton to resign based on accusations, or Sen. Bob Menendez who has been charged with corruption?
When dem bill Clinton attacks women the media defends and never calls for him to resign. But a GOP candidate has an accuser and there are calls for him to resign. Simple plan to get Moore in trouble before election so dem can win. Maybe a TV as of Him running down kids w/truck?

Roy Moore should change his name to Bob Menendez, and then the media will leave him alone.

Menendez allegations are 5 years old.
Corrupt media covered Moore more in 3 hours than Menendez in those 5 years.
Another reason we cannot trust them. And should not.

Did John McCain demand Sen Robert Menendez resign before he had his day in court?
But he thinks Roy Moore should? Smh

The media has given more coverage to Roy Moore allegations based on one article than Senator Bob Menendez, who is currently on trial. Really makes
We live in a world where “GOP” Senators demand Roy Moore drop out over dubious 40 yr old allegations, but are silent on Menendez who was actually federally criminally charged.
You cannot trust the GOP establishment. They are not our representatives. They’re part of a cartel.

Took 44 minutes to get every U.S. Senator on the record on the allegations against Roy Moore.
In 4 years, we still haven’t got a fraction of the U.S. Senate on the record on the allegations facing the corrupt Bob Menendez (D).
Media’s “asking for comment” is veiled opposition.
