As Twitchy reported, Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s wife Kayla has involved herself in her husband’s campaign, doing what she can to fend off allegations that Moore had inappropriate sexual contact with girls as young as 14.
Unfortunately, she’s not very good at it, and she keeps sharing on social media stories that have been debunked; for example, the idea that the Washington Post paid his accuser (the person who started that rumor has disappeared from Twitter) and another bogus story about a restaurant not existing when a waitress claims Moore signed her yearbook there.
The Moore campaign is doing what it can, though, and has set up a “Judge Moore Witch Hunt” link where people can report “inappropriate news organization contact.”

Yes, I'd like to report a suspicious sounding Jewish reporter for WaPo, Judge Moore, a Bernie Bernstein https://t.co/7xxai6LCYG

As Twitchy reported Tuesday night, there have been reports of robocalls from a supposed Washington Post reporter named “Bernie Bernstein” offering thousands for dirt on Moore — what looks like a pretty transparent attempt to back up the charge that the Post is paying women to accuse him.
So, will the Judge Moore Witch Hunt link turn things around?
Not really sure what kind of contact Roy Moore thinks is inappropriate, to be honest. https://t.co/T0SLOtH643

Is there a place to report inappropriate 16-year-old-girl contact? https://t.co/25GzaNTgRE

Like, say, if a reporter tries to sign your yearbook, then give you a lift in his car, then force your head into your lap. Or misquote you. https://t.co/1jRre2MQUh

If only there’d been a place to report “inappropriate Roy Moore contact” 40 years ago https://t.co/mphn4QMM0l

Donald Trump’s war with the media has nothing on the Moore campaign.

It's interesting what the Moores define as "inappropriate." https://t.co/7vWCaqnJ3U

"Phone calls, cell phone calls, messages, emails … showing up at people's houses" is basically just the definition of standard reporting methods. https://t.co/JLDEC8LLFk

“Numerous reports of phone calls, cell phone calls, messages, and emails” asking people who know Roy Moore questions about Roy Moore.
Sounds pretty ominous. https://t.co/xG5oLSOHqL

You might recognize this inappropriate contact as … REPORTING. https://t.co/GVKhTl6e0b

The fact that anyone in the Moore family can un-ironically ask people to “report inappropriate contact” is truly something else. https://t.co/EChYopsz9p
