Roy Moore, defeated Senate candidate from Alabama, after the Jewish lawyer whom Moore’s wife cited to rebut charges that “we don’t care for Jews” revealed that he not only voted for Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones, but also raised funds for his campaign. “There could not be a more passionate supporter of Doug than me,” said Richard Jaffe, who once defended Moore’s son on drug charges.
