South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham has heard enough from the accusers of candidate Judge Roy Moore. The good Senator, after supporting Judge Moore, has now switched sides. Mr. Graham has looked at other aspects of the story and is inclined to believe the women’s stories. It is amazing how quick the GOP is to eat its own.

“He’s not gonna vote for anything on this agenda, tax reform,” Bream said of the Democratic candidate, “repealing Obamacare in part or full.”
“[Sen.] Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is the biggest winner if Roy Moore loses and Trump’s the biggest loser,” Graham said.
