On the eve of Alabama’s long-awaited special election, Roy Moore’s wife decided to clear the air about her husband’s alleged anti-Semitic statements. The Republican candidate has made derogatory statements about billionaire philanthropist George Soros that many called anti-Semitic.

“Fake news would tell you that we don’t care for Jews,” said Kayla Moore, adding that she wanted to “set the record straight.

“One of our attorneys is a Jew,” she continued. “We have very close friends that are Jewish and rabbis and we also fellowship with them.”


The comments took off on Twitter and Facebook, drawing widespread criticism.


The rally, the last in Moore’s controversial campaign, was headlined by Steve Bannon. Bannon, along with other speakers, grouped Moore and Trump together.

“You know what they’re doing trying to shut up President Trump and Judge Moore? They’re trying to shut you up,” Bannon said.

Moore also had a final message for Alabamians.

“If you don’t believe in my character,” he said, “don’t vote for me.”
