In a statement posted on his Senate campaign’s Facebook page, the Republican former judge made the ask in a grievance-filled note, saying that he faced a “vicious attack from lawyers in Washington D.C. and San Francisco who have hired one of the biggest firms in Birmingham Alabama to bring another legal action against me.”
“My resources have been depleted and I have struggled to make ends meet,” Moore wrote, saying that his legal fees could exceed $100,000. “I have had to establish a legal defense fund, anything you give will be appreciated.”
Moore, who refused to concede his loss to his Democratic opponent Doug Jones, continued his campaign argument on Thursday.
“The liberal media, in association with some who want to destroy our Country,” he wrote, “… are doing everything they can to stop me.
“Gays, lesbians, and transgenders have joined forces with those who believe in abortion, sodomy, and destruction of all that we hold dear. Unless we stand together we will lose our Country,” he continued.
He said that “Christians can no longer afford to remain silent in these ‘perilous’ times,” taking aim at “covetous,” “unthankful,” “unholy” and “incontinent” “lovers of pleasure.”
“When I stood to bring these values and truths to Washington D. C. I was forced to fight the Washington establishment, the Republican Party, the Democrat Party, the ultra-liberal media and people such as George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and many others who fear the truth,” he wrote.
A list included on the donation site, presumably meant to include organizations he was fighting against, included Soros, the frequent target of conservative conspiracy theories; lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents a woman who accused Moore of groping her when she was 16 years old; the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC aligned with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.); and The Washington Post.
