Steve Bannon attacked former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a rally to support accused child molester and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore in Fairhope, Alabama.
Bannon told the crowd that the upcoming Senate election on Dec. 12 was not about Moore or President Donald Trump, but was about an effort by unknown persons to take away the voices of Alabama voters.
Bannon touted Moore’s service in Vietnam, and attacked Romney for supposedly dodging the draft during that war:
You avoided service, brother… The college deferments, we can debate that, but you hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice paddies in Vietnam. Do no talk to me about honor and integrity.
Bannon also attacked Romney’s sons for not serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Romney tweeted on Dec. 4:
Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation. Leigh Corfman and other victims are courageous heroes. No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity.
