Republicans are exploring ways to get embattled Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moores name off the ballot, including floating the possibility of changing the date of next months special election in the wake of years-old allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore.
Some party members are reportedly considering getting Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) to move the date of the Dec. 12 special election to early next year, according to The New York Times. Based on Alabama law, its too late to remove Moores name from the ballot this close to Election Day.
Moore, a former state Supreme Court chief justice, is facing wide backlash over allegations of inappropriate sexual misconduct involving a 14-year-old girl in 1979 when he was 32 years old

This party has to go.
Bastards, try it!
It’s gone already.
Desperate Deep State wants to change the rules because they know Roy Moore is electable.
Remember they told us there was no way Roy Moore was going to win the Primary. This reminds me of President Trump and all those fake rape charges.
Please tell me why I should listen to the GOP cheerleaders that flock to Free Republic. They where legion during the Virginia governor’s election.
Amazing watching this coordinated attack. Scuzzballs all.
The more crap I see from “The Hill” just tells me it is the media arm of the GOPe.
No, it’s not. It’s still right where we left it, and it is Hell bent on doing damage.
I think I am done voting. Pointless. Let’s go down the rat hole. F it.
They might as well take a knee at Capitol Hill.
Get ready with the pitchforks and torches.
The GOPe got away with Mississippi, Delaware, trying to derail DJT, and who knows what else, and now this.
The line in the sand MUST be drawn.
Boy, are they desperate. What does Roy know about THEM?
I read the whole article trying to find out who these “Republicans” were. All I could find is:
Some Republicans like Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) have floated a write-in candidacy, proposing Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who lost in the GOP primary runoff to Moore
The GOP want a Democrat to win so Trump can be impeached
I say we never forget this and primary McConnell....
Where in the hell is Moore’s due process?
Convict him in the court of public opinion?
WTF? There are literally no reasoned people who believe this contrived story.
Did they get their information from Fusion GPS?
Is their source one Mr. Steele as so called former MI6?
Give me a break....
I wish they would try floating on the Mississippi River instead, and float right out to sea.
Something tells me he’s guilty. Stuttered on Hannity. I say win or lose with him. If he wins we can deal with him in January.
Im so glad im no longer a Republican
