Alabama Republicans Declare War On GOP Sen. Richard Shelby For Not Supporting Accused Pedophile Roy Moore

Turmoil in the Alabama Republican Party continues following the stunning loss of GOP nominee Roy Moore in the December runoff election to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions as evangelical leaders are forcing state Republicans to take revenge on Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) for not supporting the accused child molester.

According to Politico, Alabama Republicans are now pushing a resolution to censure Shelby for refusing to back Moore after credible accusations of sexual misconduct were lodged against the conservative firebrand, who was twice ousted from the Alabama Supreme Court.

The resolution blasts Sen. Shelby for “publicly encouraged Republicans and all voters to write in a candidate instead of voting for the Republican Candidate Judge Roy Moore.”

In December, a pro-Moore political action committee led by religious conservatives, the Courageous Conservatives PAC, funded robocalls in December demanding Shelby resign.

“Sen. Richard Shelby stabbed President Trump and conservatives in the back,” said one recorded phone call. “Tell Shelby you’ll never forget his disloyalty to President Trump and the Republican Party for his treasonous actions. Tell Shelby he’s betrayed his trust to Alabamians and he should resign his office. Call now.”

Dallas investor Christopher Ekstrom, a fervent Roy Moore supporter, has been helping bankroll the anti-Shelby campaign in Alabama.

Ekstrom claimed Sen. Shelby was responsible for destroying “what was a very strong GOP in Alabama.”

The Dallas millionaire is also the main donor for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, giving him nearly $40,000 in campaign donations.
