“If Roy Moore doesn’t belong in the U.S. Senate based on unproven 40-year old allegations, then Senator Thad Cochran certainly doesn’t belong in the U.S. Senate based on his proven conduct.” – Conservative HQ


Conservative HQ Compares Responses To 2017 Unproven Accusations Against Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore To “Proven Conduct” Of Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran In 2014:  The Despicable Mitch McConnell

In the 2014 Mississippi Republican Senate primary McConnell backed 36-year incumbent establishment Senator Thad Cochran, whom Citizens Against Government Waste once named the leading pork-seeker in the Mitch McConnell Senate, against principled limited government constitutional conservative state Senator Chris McDaniel.

According to Brietbart’s Matthew Boyle, Sen. Cochran and executive assistant Kay Webber “traveled eight times to France, five times to Italy, four times to Israel, and twice to Japan.

The full list of countries they traveled to includes: Italy, France, Brussels, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Hungary, Russia, Norway, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Malta, Austria, and Czech Republic in Europe; Colombia, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile in South America; Guatemala, and Mexico in North and Central America; Japan, China, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, the Republic of the Philippines, and South Korea in Asia; Turkey, Jordan, Israel, Azerbaijan, Oman, and United Arab Emirates in the Middle East, to Morocco; and Egypt, Cape Verde, and South Africa in Africa.

Other documents show that in 2005 and 2007, the Wine Institute, a trade association that represents the California wine industry, paid for Cochran’s and Webber’s travel to Sonoma, California for what a disclosure form described as “a fact-finding program on issues of importance to the wine industry.” No other aides attended the trip.

The Congressional Record lists 33 trips that Cochran and Webber attended together. According to that record, the cost to the American taxpayer of Webber’s travel was at least $155,000.

Further investigations showed that while Senator Cochran’s wife, ailing with Alzheimer’s, was confined to a nursing home in Mississippi, Senator Cochran was for all intents and purposes living with Ms. Webber – but that did not prompt Senator McConnell to call for Senator Cochran to step down.

Indeed, Senator McConnell doubled down and put millions of dollars into Senator Cochran’s re-election and, in a replay of today’s Alabama election, he pulled out all the stops to defeat Chris McDaniel – even going so far as to engage in a vile race-baiting campaign to defeat him in the run-off.

Not long after the late Mrs. Cochran’s death Senator Cochran married Ms. Webber.

    It seems to me that the allegations against Cochran, if true, are in a different category than the allegations against Moore, if true. It is one thing to shack up when one’s wife is in a nursing home and hardly sentient. It is another thing to undress yourself down to your whitey tightees and then to undress a 14 year old down to her bra and underpants, grope her breasts, touch her private parts, and place her hand on your erect penis. And it is another thing to grope and try to force yourself on a 16 year old in a locked car. There are gradations of sin, and Moore’s actions, if the allegations are true are far more grievous than the actions of Cochran. Cochran would be guilty of the sin of adultery. Moore would be guilty of the sin seeking sexual gratification with young teenage girls. Cochran’s would be scandalous to some. Moore’s would be creepy. to virtually all. Like it or not, and I don’t, society has come to the point that it does not condemn living with someone without marriage. It has not, however, yet come tot he place that it accepts older men taking sexual advantage young teenagers.
