An official has quit the Republican National Committee over the GOP’s support of Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who faces accusations of sexual assault as well as also harassment.
Joyce Simmons, the GOP national committeewoman coming from Nebraska, emailed the 168-member governing body Monday to inform them of which she had tendered her resignation. She writes: “I strongly disagree with the recent RNC financial support directed to the Alabama Republican Party for use inside Roy Moore race.”
Simmons adds of which she wishes she could have continued her service “to the national Republican Party of which I used to know well.”
The RNC had pulled support coming from Moore after the allegations surfaced against him last month. although the organization re-entered the race once President Donald Trump endorsed Moore, citing the need for a Republican inside seat.
