Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s wife Kayla rejected claims that the couple is anti-Semitic by saying that “one of our attorneys is a Jew,” adding that they “have very close friends that are Jewish.”
“Fake news would tell you that we don’t care for Jews,” Kayla Moore said Monday at the Midland City, Ala, event.
“I tell you all this because I’ve seen it all, so I just want to set the record straight while they’re here,” she said while waving at members of the media as the crowd cheered.
“One of our attorneys is a Jew,” she continued.
“We have very close friends that are Jewish, and rabbis, we also do fellowship with them.”
