Roy Moore event ends with confrontation between supporters and media


Things got heated after a press conference held by supporters of Roy Moore wrapped up on Thursday. The event, where Pro-family leaders gathered to voice support for Moore, became confrontational after Moore left the stage without answering questions regarding the recent allegations of sexual misconduct made against him.

Some of his supporters, including Flip Benham of Operation Rescue, entered a shouting match with reporters and photographers.

“They have got the torches and pitchforks out,” said Benham, referring to the media members in attendance.

When asked by WBRC’s Rick Journey, why the members of the media haven’t been able to ask Moore a question this week, Benham continued expressing his frustration, “these people are sick, sick, sick, and in desperate need of Jesus…”
