Obama Did Cocaine and Was Still Elected, Claims Roy Moore Supporter on CNN

An Alabama reporter attempted to distract CNN viewers from the growing alleged sex abuse scandal around GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore on Monday by arguing that former President Barack Obama is guilty, too—of doing drugs. Brandon Moseley, a writer for the Alabama Political Reporter, told CNN's Brooke Baldwin that he believes Moore's denial of a Washington Post report accusing him of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl in 1979. Moseley said the allegations were "unsubstantiated" and, even if they occurred, would have only amounted to a misdemeanor 38 years ago.
