Lindsey Graham calls for Roy Moore to step aside but defends Robert Menendez

[Ed. – Graham appears to have fallen on his head at some point.]

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) said on Friday that if the allegations against Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate Roy Moore are true, he should step aside, and “should be dealt with severely.”

But Graham not only hasn’t called for Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez (N.J.), accused of having sex with underage prostitutes, to step aside — he also went to New Jersey on his own dime two weeks ago to testify as a character witness in Menendez’s corruption trial, telling the judge that Menendez is “very honest” and “honorable.”

The Washington Post published a story on Thursday quoting a woman named Leigh Corfman saying that when she was 14 years old, she met Roy Moore at the courthouse in Etowah County, Alabama, where he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, and that he later picked her up down the street from her house and took her to his home on two occasions. The second time, she said, he took off her clothes and touched her over her underwear, and put her hand on his underwear.
