The former U.S. Senate candidate has been awarded $8.2 million in damages by a federal jury that has determined a Democrat-aligned super political action committee (PAC) falsely accused him of sexual misconduct during his 2017 U.S. Senate bid.
Those accusations might well have cost Moore the election against Doug Jones, who went on to become the first Democrat senator from Alabama in a quarter-century. He was ousted by Republican Tommy Tuberville in 2020.
"I am so pleased, finally, that my friend, Judge Roy Moore, the 'Ten Commandments Judge,' was vindicated by a jury of his peers," responds Gordon Klingenschmitt, a former Navy chaplain who runs the Pray In Jesus Name project. "He was defamed by a radical, leftist super PAC out of Washington, D.C., and they spent $4 million on false, defamatory ads to try and take away his election to the U.S. Senate."
Though he is pleased with the court decision, Klingenschmitt points out that $8 million will not make up for the people's loss, as Moore has not been in a legislative position to fight for Christian values in Washington.
"I think he would be outspoken on issues of faith, he'd be pro-life, he'd be pro-Jesus, and he would be pro-Ten Commandments," the former Navy chaplain submits. "He'd be against homosexual marriage, and he'd be speaking out about all the important issues. I think had Roy Moore been elected, he would be the leader of that movement."
Klingenschmitt hopes that Moore will get another chance to serve the people of Alabama.
