When Roy Moore’s campaign asked people to report “inappropriate news organization contact,” they probably weren’t expecting this.
In an obvious move to discredit the Washington Post and other news outlets that reported allegations that the senate candidate sexually harassed and abused teenagers when he was in his 30s, the campaign set up a form on its website so supporters could report journalists.
The former Alabama Supreme Court judge has denied the allegations since the story first broke last week. His latest move (after a robocall impersonating a nonexistent Washington Post reporter went out Tuesday) is this form intended blame those conniving, unscrupulous journalists that are totally out to get the candidate before the Dec. 12 election.
As his wife posted on her Facebook page — another source of false information about the scandal — she called this is a media “witch hunt.”
The form seems to have backfired and turned into a call to action. People are mobilizing and sharing their creative, trolling responses submitted to the Moore campaign site.
Let’s just say “Bernie Bernstein” doesn’t have anything on some of these submissions.
It’s highly unlikely anything close to incriminating information on journalists is getting through amidst all the troll posts. Welcome to the internet, Roy Moore.
