Co­hen duped me, Roy Moore says

Windsor Star - - YOU -

De­feated U.S. Se­nate can­di­date Roy Moore is talk­ing about a defama­tion suit af­ter al­leg­ing he too was duped by ac­tor Sacha Baron Co­hen for Co­hen’s up­com­ing TV se­ries. On Face­book, Moore says he ac­cepted an all-ex­pens­e­s­paid trip to Wash­ing­ton in Fe­bru­ary af­ter be­ing told he would re­ceive an award for sup­port­ing Is­rael. He says he didn’t know Co­hen would mock Is­rael and scheme to hu­mil­i­ate him and other con­ser­va­tives, in­clud­ing Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney. Co­hen’s se­ries Who is Amer­ica? de­buts Sunday on Show­time in the U.S. and in Canada on CraveTV. Moore has threat­ened Show­time with le­gal ac­tion if it airs the Co­hen episode that in­cludes him.
