Right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday criticized Republicans for distancing themselves from Alabama GOP Senate candidate, while saying that Roy Moore was a Democrat at the time he allegedly engaged in sexual misconduct with teenage girls.

“Not matter what the real stories are here and no matter what the evidence is, these guys, these people, on the Republican side are making it clear they’re going to prevent this guy from ever being seated in the United States Senate.”

“Did you know that before 1992, when a lot of this was going on, that Judge Moore was a Democrat?”

“You didn’t know that? How ’bout all these people now – ‘Oh yeah, everybody here knew about Judge Moore!’ – while he was a Democrat? Nobody said a word. When he supposedly was attracted to inappropriately aged girls, he was a Democrat.”
