Republican Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore appeared to avoid the limelight and skipped church service two days before Alabama’s special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He gave just one media interview, once again denying the allegations of sexual misconduct against him.
“Roy Moore, still in hiding, didn’t attend his own church services,” wrote Kira Lerner, political reporter at Think Progress, on Twitter.
“Out of respect for people who want to worship without reporters hanging over their heads gawking, no, he did not attend church this morning,” Moore adviser Brett Doster told BuzzFeed News.
Some have accused Moore of avoiding facing tough questions about the allegations days before the election.
Doug Jones, Moore’s rival and the Democratic candidate, on the other hand, attended the 8:30 a.m. morning service at Sixth Avenue Baptist Church in west Birmingham to start a busy day of campaigning, according to AL.com.
