McConnell’s ‘moral­ity me­ter’

San Francisco Chronicle - - OPINION - Finn MacLaugh­lin, Daly City

So Se­nate Ma­jor­ity Leader Mitch McConnell is call­ing for Roy Moore to step aside from the U.S. Se­nate race in Alabama now that mul­ti­ple sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tions have been made against the for­mer judge. But why didn’t McConnell de­mand that Don­ald Trump exit from last year’s pres­i­den­tial race af­ter sim­i­lar al­le­ga­tions were lodged against the for­mer re­al­ity TV host? Ap­par­ently, McConnell’s “moral­ity me­ter” only budges when his po­si­tion as Se­nate ma­jor­ity leader is threat­ened.
