Luther Strange’s new ad brings up a 2015 decision by Moore that would have made it harder to prosecute child-sex cases.
Sen. Luther Strange’s (R-AL) campaign is out with a new ad highlighting how his Republican challenger Roy Moore once issued a ruling that would have made it harder to prosecute child sex offenders.
In 2015, Moore was the lone dissenting vote on a case involving a young man seeking to overturn one of two charges of sodomy against him.
“Eric Lemont Higdon: convicted of child sodomy, forcing a young child to have sex at a daycare center. A liberal court strikes down a Higdon conviction,” the ad’s narrator starts.
The narrator then points out how Sen. Strange, then attorney general, fought to reinstate Higdon’s conviction.
“Unbelievably, Roy Moore was the only no vote in the 8-to-1 decision favoring Big Luther’s appeal,” the narrator concluded. “Moore stated he saw no threat of serious physical injury to the child victim. Roy Moore: too risky for us.”
