….at the cost of their soul.

How does the Judge Roy Moore episode educate us?

It tells us there is a section of Trump supporters, zealots to be sure, who put political success over breaking the law. That policy may well extend to the president of the United States. Unlike Richard Nixon, Trump is unlikely to step down, even if indicted.

Right now, the Trump administration is doubling down on Moore, but that might become an untenable position. Each day, more evidence appears that Moore is lying about knowing the women when they were young girls.

Perhaps Trump is hoping that Moore will win, get sworn in, resign and let the Republican Governor appoint a less flawed Senator. The proof that a deal has been made is the resumed participation of the Republican Party.

That is risky, but from a political standpoint, it will retain a Senate majority for the Republicans.but at the cost of their soul.
