Does Congressman Barletta Believe A Man Accused Of Sexual Misconduct With Minors Belongs In The Senate?
Today, Pennsylvania Democratic Party Executive Director Sinceré Harris and President of Philadelphia Chapter of the National Organization for Women Jenné Ayers called on Congressman Lou Barletta to end his silence on Roy Moore and repudiate his fellow Senate candidate for engaging in “sexual misconduct with minors.”
“Congressman Barletta must join his fellow Pennsylvania Republicans in clearly and unequivocally repudiating Roy Moore and calling on him to end his Senate campaign,” Pennsylvania Democratic Party Executive Director Sinceré Harris. “Given the sickening reports and the judge’s own comments, there can be no doubt that Roy Moore has no business in the United States Senate. Barletta owes it to the people of Pennsylvania to say where he stands. Does Congressman Barletta want to serve in the Senate alongside a man accused of sexually preying on minors?”
“It should not take days to stand up and say that a man credibly accused of engaging in sexual misconduct with minors has no business in any elected office,” said Jenné Ayers, President of Philadelphia Chapter of the National Organization for Women. “Congressman Barletta’s silence in the face of these developments is problematic. Does Barletta think Moore should step aside? Would Barletta back efforts to expel Moore from the Senate should he win? Will he end his silence and join the chorus of Republican elected officials calling on Moore to withdraw from the race? Pennsylvanians deserve answers.”
