Local politicians are weighing in on the Roy Moore allegation.
The news broke during the Huntsville State of the City address and immediately after the address WAAY 31 asked the mayor about those allegation.
Just minutes after delivering his state of the city speech in front of a sold out crowd Mayor Battle was well aware of sexual abuse allegations against Moore and didn’t shy away from addressing it.
A candidate for office himself, Battle would not say if he was or did endorse Roy Moore for the Senate seat, but he was adamant that he would support the candidate of the Republican Party.
“As a Republican running for governor I will support the person who was chosen by the Republican Party. That being said, a report just came out and that report if true, is one that nobody who has done what that report says should be a US senator,” Mayor, (R) Huntsville, Tommy Battle said.
His campaign also sent out the following statement:
“The allegations made against Roy Moore are very serious. If the allegations are true, then he does not need to be the Republican candidate for Senate."
Senator Richard Shelby also commented on the issue asserting, "If that's true, I don't believe there'd be any place for him in the United States Senate."
