Stephen Moore’s Past Is Catching Up With Him
According to Politico, Stephen Moore’s chances of getting confirmed to the Federal Reserve maybe in jeopardy because of his past.
He’s called a GOP senator’s hometown one of the “armpits of America.” He’s suggested some women, who make up a quarter of the Senate, shouldn’t play sports.
And during a 2004 Senate race, he attacked another Republican senator for his insufficiently conservative voting record.
Some members of the GOP leadership have described themselves as “unenthused” by Moore’s nomination, and other remained noncommittal.
