Last week, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway weighed in on the growing number of allegations that Roy Moore had inappropriate sexual contact with teenagers by saying, “there is no senate seat worth more than a child.”
On Monday however, she seems to have changed course and is now suggesting that an alleged pedophile is a better choice than a Democrat because that alleged pedophile is running as a Republican and could help pass the GOP tax bill.
Conway appeared on Fox and Friends on Monday to attack the Democratic nominee in the Alabama Senate race.
“Doug Jones in Alabama, folks, don’t be fooled,” Conway said. “He will be a vote against tax cuts. He is weak on crime. Weak on borders. He’s strong on raising your taxes. He is terrible for property owners. And Doug Jones is a doctrinaire liberal, which is why he’s not saying anything and why the media are trying to boost him.”
When host Brian Kilmeade asked about Moore, Conway didn’t try to hide support for a man who was twice removed from his judicial position on the Alabama Supreme Court and has also been accused by a number of women of sexual misconduct when he was in his 30s and they were in their teens — allegations that many in Moore’s hometown corroborate.
“I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through,” Conway said.
Kellyanne Conway once said that "anyone in public office who has mistreated women should 'step aside,'" but apparently for her sexually molesting a 14-year-old girl can be justified with a single congressional vote. Disgusting.

The Republican National Committee and the Republican Senatorial Committee have both cut off their fundraising ties with Moore in the wake of the allegations, and top Republicans have called for Moore to step aside.
But, based on Conway’s interview, the Trump administration is more interested in securing massive tax breaks for corporations and the wealthiest Americans — at the expense of the middle and lower classes — than it is keeping pedophiles who claim to put the Bible above U.S. law out of public office.
