Does Wagner Stand With his Buddy Steve Bannon In Backing Accused Child Molester Roy Moore?

“I Love It,” – Scott Wagner on His Endorsement by Bannon

Last night, white nationalist leader and Scott Wagner endorser Steve Bannon headlined a rally for accused child molestor Roy Moore. Back in September, Scott Wagner received an endorsement from Bannon and even “plane-pooled” with him on a chartered flight out of Baltimore to an ultra-conservative conference in St. Louis. 

“Does Scott Wagner stand with Steve Bannon in backing child molestor Roy Moore?” asked Beth Melena, communications director for the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. “Pennsylvanians deserve to know if Scott Wagner supports having child molestors in public office.”
