Roy Moore drops lawsuit over campaign ads against him

Former Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore has dropped his lawsuit accusing a number of groups and individuals of defaming him with campaign ads against him.

Moore’s attorney filed a motion Friday to dismiss the July lawsuit, according to AL.com, but did not provide details as to why Moore was seeking to drop the case.

Moore and his wife, Kayla Moore, filed the lawsuit in July, claiming that a number of “misleading” commercials cost him the open U.S. Senate seat in Alabama.

The commercials in question targeted Moore over the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct against him that arose in the last weeks of the Alabama Senate campaign, which he ultimately lost to Democrat Doug Jones.

Several women came forward during the campaign saying that Moore pursued romantic and sexual relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

The lawsuit said the commercials, which declared Moore was banned from an Alabama mall in the 1970s due to predatory behavior toward young women, “included false content” and were published “with a reckless disregard as to their falsity.”

Friday’s motion drops the allegations against all defendants, but leaves the door open for Moore to re-file the case at a later date.

Moore has filed a number of other lawsuits following his election loss, including a defamation lawsuit against an individual who accused him of misconduct and another alleging a group of his accusers engaged in a “political conspiracy” against him.

Most recently, Moore sued comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, who duped him into a humiliating interview for his new Showtime project, “Who Is America?”

My best guess is he cooled off, searched his memory bank, realized all the accusers were spot on, and figured discretion was the better part of valor.  Plus, as far as elected office is concered, he's done anyway.

Sasha Baron Cohen's interview with Roy Moore was priceless.

He posed as an Israeli security professional. He pulled out a wand of some sort and said it could detect pedophiles. Moore was all approving until Cohen passed it over Moore's body and it went off.

Priceless.

Speaking of promised lawsuits against lying "victims," is Der Fuhrer still planning to sue all the "liars" like he promised during his campaign?  Haven't heard much about it lately.  And it can't be because he's too busy doing other things.  He has plenty of time to brood and tweet, anyway.

Trumputin knows he can't do anything directly about them because they are not lying, and that would come out in a fair legal process. His tactic all his life is to use costly lawsuits to shut people up and get his way. But now there's plenty of patriotic Americans who will help fund the legal defense of Trump's victims.

However he may be busy getting Putin to send over some hit men to take care of his problems. That's Putin's preferred method for silencing critics. It probably will be Trumputin's as well, if we don't eject him first.

Where are Harry, AmericanMom and Stu? They loved Moore. No words of wisdom from the b-team?
