Rush Limbaugh is railing about Democratic Party hypocrisy over Roy Moore, pointing out that Moore was a Democrat when he allegedly engaged in abusive sexual conduct with minors.
The radio host also rails against Republicans in Congress, whom he says have made up their minds to play judge, jury and executioner with Moore over the will of Alabama.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday criticized Republicans for distancing themselves from Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, while saying that Moore was a Democrat at the time he allegedly engaged in sexual misconduct with teenage girls.
“Did you know that before 1992, when a lot of this was going on, that Judge Moore was a Democrat?” Limbaugh said on his radio show. “Nobody said a word.”
“When he supposedly was attracted to inappropriately-aged girls — he was a Democrat,” Limbaugh added.
Limbaugh also went after Republicans who have called on Moore to step aside from the race.
“No matter what the real stories are here, and no matter what the evidence is, these guys, these people on the Republican side, are making it clear they are going to prevent this guy from ever being seated in the United States Senate,” Limbaugh said.
Moore earned an appointment to the circuit trial court in Etowah County in 1992 after switching his political affiliation from Democrat to Republican, according to Politico.
Whatever your opinion of Roy Moore, this sets up as a lose-lose scenario for the Democrats.
Either admit that at least some charges against Moore are drummed-up and partisan in nature, or admit that being a creep is permissible for Democrats. He would have done it under their watch.
