Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), said if Alabama GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore wins the special election on December 12, and the Ethics Committee finds he was a child molester that “would be a problem.”
Partial transcript as follows:
GRAHAM: I think the body can regulate itself at the end of the day when he comes to the Senate if he does. I think an investigation, ethics investigation, would be smarted thing to do. And we’ll see what the Ethics Committee decides as to whether they look at behavior before he came into the Senate. Does that matter, if they do, what did they find, we’ll see.
DICKERSON: Could you have him be a senator, would you be able to based on what you’ve heard, you’d be OK with him being a senator?
GRAHAM: We can’t stop him from being seated. If there was an investigation and all six members of the committee said they believe he was a child molester, that would be a problem.
