Roy Moore's party has been punished for his refusal to do the right thing.That means Democrats who fretted that Al Franken shouldn't have been pushed out of the Senate over the sexual misconduct allegations against him were wrong.While the Democratic Party has forced influential legislators like Michigan Representative John Conyers and Minnesota Senator Al Franken to resign, Moore was ultimately supported by the Republican National Committee, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Trump himself – a man who not only has been accused of sexual harassment by at least 15 women but was caught on tape in 2005 boasting about kissing and groping women without their permission.Alabama is an overwhelmingly Republican state, in which the dysfunctional Democratic Party has not won statewide in over a decade and did not even field a Senate candidate for the same seat in 2014 .Aside from the political risks for both parties of harboring alleged sexual offenders, Democrats have an especially strong incentive because they serve a different constituency than Republicans.Clearly there's a political risk to doing the right thing.
