One of Our Attorneys is a Jew!

Midland City, Alabama (CNN)Roy Moore's wife, Kayla, argued that her husband is no bigot at a Monday night campaign rally, saying that "one of our attorneys is a Jew."

"Fake news would tell you that we don't care for Jews. And I tell you all this because I've seen it and I just want to set the record straight while they're here," she said. "One of our attorneys is a Jew. We have very close friends that are Jewish, and rabbis, and we also fellowship with them."

Her comments came a week after Roy Moore attacked George Soros, the Jewish liberal mega-donor, saying Soros "is going to the same place that people who don't recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going. And that's not a good place."
    Kayla Moore also listed other examples of her husband supporting groups he's faced criticism for targeting in previous comments and writings.
    "Fake news would also have you think that my husband doesn't support the black community," she said. "Yet my husband appointed the very first black marshal to the Alabama Supreme Court, Mr. Willie James. When he first took office as the chief justice many years ago he brought with him three people from Etowah County. Two were black, and one of them is here tonight."
    Moore is running to fill the US Senate seat vacated by fellow Republican Jeff Sessions, who was confirmed as attorney general following US President Donald Trump's victory.

    The former Alabama Supreme Court justice faces Democrat Doug Jones in a special election Tuesday. Moore has cast himself as an outsider to Washington, hoping to strike the anti-establishment chord that helped Trump win last year. Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist, has been one of Moore's most prominent backers.
    Though Alabama is considered a reliably Republican state, the election is expected to be closer than usual. Moore has been besieged by allegations of sexual misconduct, including pursuing relationships with teenage girls while in his 30s.
    Moore has consistently denied the allegations. During a rally Monday, he denounced the "terrible, disgusting" reporting of The Washington Post, which first reported a woman's accusation that he had pursued a sexual relationship with her when she was 14 and he was 32.
    Even before the allegations of pursuing sexual relationships with teens, Moore was the most controversial major-party Senate nominee in recent memory.

    He was booted as an Alabama Supreme Court chief justice for refusing to remove a two-ton statue of the Ten Commandments he'd ordered placed on state property. He was elected back to the job, but ousted again in 2016 for refusing to institute the US Supreme Court's decision legalizing same-sex marriage.

    Should play just fine to the base audience. The rest of us already know from past statements what Judge Moire thinks.

    OK, real question, is it appropriate to say "a Jew" instead of "Jewish"? That just sounds...weird, to me, for some reason. I don't really know any Jewish people. 


    Either way, these people, smh...

    She practically spat the word out.

    She sounded as kind and compassionate as Trump on a Twitter rant.

    I am Jewish therefore a Jew. IMO it really depends on the context.

    Ok, thanks. I don't mean to make it sound like I think "jew" is negative in general; it might have just been the way this lady said it.

    It's totally the way she said it, that's why I added the video. It wasn't the same as just reading it.
