PFAW’s Peter Montgomery Talks Roy Moore’s Extremism on ‘Democracy Now!’

News and Analysis

In recent weeks, news coverage of GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore has centered on allegations that he sexually assaulted teenage girls. On Monday, People For the American Way Senior Fellow Peter Montgomery joined Amy Goodman on “Democracy Now!” to talk about the other Roy Moore scandal: the Republican party’s willingness to stand by Moore despite his track record of extremism.

“I think it’s scandalous that we have the Republican party and a president supporting someone for the Senate whose whole career has demonstrated such contempt for core constitutional principles and the rule of law—and that’s before you consider the allegations that are made by a number of women about him preying on and molesting teenage girls,” Montgomery said.
