GOP Rep Taylor on Moore: If That 14-Year-Old Was My Daughter, ‘I’d Break His Face’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Representative Scott Taylor (R-VA) weighed in on the allegations surrounding Alabama Republican Senate nominee Judge Roy Moore by stating, “The 14-year-old girl that was there, I can tell you right now, if it was my daughter, I’d break his face, I’d break his fingers, and I’d probably do a lot worse.”

Taylor said, “Well, let me preface this by saying, you know, this election’s going to be decided by folks in Alabama, so, you know, they will be the deciding factor, there’s no question about it. You know, I don’t — all I know is what I’ve seen. I saw the man give his interview. Me personally, I don’t think it was sufficient enough. The 14-year-old girl that was there, I can tell you right now, if it was my daughter, I’d break his face, I’d break his fingers, and I’d probably do a lot worse. I think that the president has probably looked at raw politics, and the alternative, of course, would jeopardize his agenda in a very close Senate. Now, people can have their feelings about that, whether he should do it or not. But I can tell you, Alabama — the folks from Alabama will choose their next senator, but I certainly don’t feel comfortable with his explanation and everything that happened.”

He added, “I think you have to listen to the women. I mean, clearly, this isn’t an isolated case now. it looks like across the country, in many different areas where there are men in power, who have crossed the line. There is no question about it. Women are feeling emboldened to come out and speak, and I think that’s a good thing. … At the same time, you also have to be skeptical in some instances, but I don’t think this is one that we should be.”
