Steve Bannon spoke at a rally for Roy Moore on Tuesday night and used part of his remarks to slam Mitt Romney for his recent comments about the Alabama Senate candidate.
Moore “has more honor and integrity in [his] pinky finger than your entire family has in its whole DNA,” the Breitbart news chief said, referencing the 2012 GOP nominee.
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.

On Monday, Romney tweeted that “Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation.”
“You hid behind your religion,” Bannon added, acknowledging that he was getting personal. “You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice paddies.”
Moore has been dogged by a sexual harassment scandal, as several women have accused him or sexual misconduct or harassing behavior. The allegations stem from the 1970s-1991. Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations.
“They want to destroy Judge Roy Moore. You know why? They want to take your voice away,” Bannon said as Moore looked on. “If they can destroy Roy Moore, they can destroy you.”
