Ray Moore is the ultra-conservative, racist, corrupt, homophobic, theocratic evangelical Christian Alabama Republican Senate nominee who was outed for repeatedly sexually assaulting girls as young as 14.
The right has rallied around him.
Steve Bannon blamed the Washington Post for reporting on the allegations, saying they'd "dropped a dime" on Moore as they'd done with Trump when they reported on Trump's hot-mic boasting about sexually assaulting women.
Bannon did not deny that Moore or Trump had sexually assaulted women, rather, he criticized the news media for disclosing this fact, claiming the disclosures -- even if true -- were politically motivated.
Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler, a Republican operator, gave an interviews in which he justified Moore's assaults on children by citing scripture, noting that "Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter" and stating that Moore's assaults on children were "nothing immoral or illegal...Maybe just a little bit unusual."
