No more, Moore … please!

Roy Moore has distinguished himself in a most dubious manner.

The former Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from the great state of Alabama has emerged as the nation’s most ungracious, unabashedly poor loser. He might be lower himself to become the poorest loser in U.S. political history.

Moore lost a special election to Democratic Sen.-elect Doug Jones by roughly 20,000 votes, or about 1.5 percentage points. The margin of victory is beyond the state’s mandatory automatic recount threshold.

Moore didn’t concede on election night. He didn’t concede the next day or week after. In fact, he hasn’t conceded yet. The election was three weeks ago.

The Republican outlier has decided to maintain his public profile by alleging — without any evidence — that there was widespread voter fraud in Alabama. The state’s GOP secretary of state certified Jones’s victory anyway. Jones will be seated next month by Vice President Pence.

Moore might be the worst Senate candidate in history, too. He really had no business even being nominated by the GOP during that state’s primary. He was booted off the state supreme court twice by judicial ethics watchdogs for refusing to obey federal court orders.

Oh, and then came the allegations of sexual abuse by women, one of whom accused Moore of trying to seduce her when she was a 14-year-old girl. Pedophilia — allegedly — anyone?

I’ve already used this blog to implore Moore to disappear. If he only he would do as many of us have asked. Since he won’t, I feel compelled to say that this guy has disgraced himself and the political process he supposedly sought to serve.
