The Republican Party is officially backing a lawless bigot who is accused of molesting and harassing teenagers.
But one Republican senator – and only one – has decided to put bare minimum decency over party by supporting Democrat Doug Jones instead.
Arizona’s Jeff Flake, who is retiring next year instead of running for re-election, made a small but symbolic donation of $100 to the Jones campaign on Tuesday.

But even Flake apparently had enough of his party’s renewed support of Moore.
It’s a shameful choice, but not a surprising one, given that the exact same party proved a year ago that it also prefers an admitted sexual predator in the Oval Office over a Democratic woman.
Flake’s next step should be to spend every day between now and Election Day on Dec. 12 loudly encouraging his Senate colleagues to follow his lead by choosing “Country over party.” Sadly they have made it very clear that’s not a choice they will make.Join The Conversation
