Andress, according to Moore, "is clearly using her position to favor a particular candidate". Andress' support of Riley has "betrayed" Republican voters, in Moore's words.
Moore cites a recent state GOP newsletter in which Twinkle writes, " ...Alabamians have benefited from the strong Republican leadership of ...Gov. Riley...in building our economy and handling the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina." Moore says statements such as this break the neutrality incumbent upon the GOP chair.
Moore has to know that his calls for Twinkle's recusal will fall on deaf ears. But by publicly accusing the Alabama Republican hierarchy of a pro-Riley bias, Moore has developed a possible rationale for an independent (or Constitution Party) bid. The argument would go something like, "If Roy Moore can't get a "fair shake" in the GOP primary, what other option does he have?".
I am not claiming that I know for a fact that Moore will run as an independent in November, but his press conference yesterday could be an initial step in a series of events that could lead to that conclusion. And if that happens you don't need me to tell you that media from around the world will descend upon the circus that is the Alabama governor's race.
