In a hilariously ignorant attempt to disprove accusations that her husband doesn’t “care for Jews,” the wife of the sexual predator and former Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore pointed out on the night before the special election in December that “one of our attorneys is a Jew!“
However, the Birmingham-based attorney in question told the Washington Examiner Tuesday that he was actually one of the reasons Moore was defeated by Democrat Doug Jones. “There could not be a more passionate supporter of Doug than me!” exclaimed Richard Jaffe, who was hired by the Moores to defend their son against drug charges in 2016.
Moore’s comments first set off alarms when he ignorantly claimed Jewish billionaire George Soros is “going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going.” George Soros is a common target of conspiracy theories by paranoid and gullible right-wingers. Anyway, Moore might want to be careful because it seems like child predators would go there too. Moore’s wife, Kayla, later used the typical idiotic defense that Moore’s remark was anti-Semitic were “fake news.”
Jaffe plans to attend Jones’ swearing in on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., the Washington Examiner reports.
