I love it when liberals and moderates attack a conservative; it shows their true agenda ….


Scandal-ridden Senate candidate Roy Moore is suing a conservative media outlet for $40 million alleging “fake news,” as he runs his second campaign in three years for the same Alabama seat.

 

The Alabama Republican lost to Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., in a 2017 special election, after facing multiple accusations during the campaign that he had pursued romantic relationships with teenage girls while he was in his 30s. Moore filed the suit against Washington Examiner on Monday.

The suit against Washington Examiner publishers, editors and writers is for $40 million total, including $10 million for “defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress” and another $30 million in punitive damages.

Examiner writers and editors Tiana Lowe, Jerry Dunleavy, Brad Polumbo, Phillip Klein and Timothy Carney are the named defendants in the suit, along with multiple media companies that back the Examiner and Clarity Media Group owner Philip Anschutz.

The specific headlines Moore’s lawsuit cites include “GOP nightmare as Alabama’s Roy Moore signals he might run again” and “If Alabamans vote for Roy Moore, they deserve Doug Jones.”

Under the second headline, Lowe wrote, “Roy Moore, famous for being banned from a mall because he sexually preyed on underage girls and losing a Senate race in an R+14 state, apparently wants another round at the rodeo.”

Representatives with The Washington Examiner did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
