We Cannot Remain Silent
By Mike Fox and Mike Hersh for Donna, Judy, Janis, Dan, Dr. Bill, Deb, Kimberly, Bryan, and Amos—Your PDA National Team
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is appalled that Roy Moore—a disgraced former judge—is running for U.S. Senate in the Alabama special election as the Republican nominee. He was kicked off the judiciary twice for ignoring the Constitution and the Alabama Supreme Court on issues including equal rights and the separation of church and state.
Moore’s extremism and intolerance exposed him as unqualified. This even before alarming allegations that, as a middle-aged District Attorney, Moore had improper sexual contact with five women (to date)—one of whom was only 14 years old at the time. Contact Mike Fox if you’ll either make quick, easy voter mobilization calls from your own home, or can knock on doors in Alabama. Pitch in now to help defeat Roy Moore.
Doug Jones, the Democratic Party nominee running against Moore, has shown principled stands throughout his career in public office. He’s a hero for successfully prosecuting the KKK terrorists who killed four little girls in the infamous 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama. He defends a woman’s right to choose and supports Planned Parenthood. He’s for raising the minimum wage, and increasing access to voting.
Going by what we know about both candidates, PDA feels we cannot sit back in silence and let this election happen without our involvement. Doug Jones is a good candidate. Roy Moore reportedly cruised shopping malls and high school football games seeking liaisons with teenaged girls, and allegedly forced himself on at least one young girl in a car. We must not let a bigoted theocratic hypocrite and alleged serial sexual predator like Roy Moore win a Senate seat. Please pitch in now to help defeat Roy Moore.
Moore was fired twice as a judge. He doesn’t believe in separation of church and state. He’s an avowed gay basher with extreme views on immigration. He has an unhealthy love of guns. That would have been enough for us to fear Roy Moore as Senator, but with the shocking revelations regarding his penchant for preying on underage girls, we must ask you to join us taking a stand.
Contact Mike Fox if you’ll either make easy Get Out The Vote calls from your home, or are willing to knock doors in Alabama. Or if you aren’t able to volunteer, please give generously so we can help defeat Roy Moore.
The stakes are just too high for us to remain silent. Please help us make a difference. Thank you so much for anything you can do.

P.S. We are not saying Doug Jones is a progressive. We’re still not sure where he stands on some important issues. We are saying that Roy Moore is grossly, grotesquely unqualified for any public office, and must be stopped from entering the U.S. Senate. Contact Mike Fox if you’ll either make quick, easy voter mobilization calls from your own home, or can knock on doors in Alabama. Pitch in now to help defeat Roy Moore. Please do all you can to help!
