Fact Check: Mitch McConnell-Affiliated PAC Lies About Roy Moore in False Attack Ad on Border Wall

Written by  Matthew Boyle

A PAC affiliated with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is lying about Judge Roy Moore, the frontrunner GOP candidate for U.S.

Senate in Alabama, in a blatantly false attack ad about Moore’s position on President Donald Trump’s border wall.

The attack ad—which is demonstrably untrue and out of context, and splices together videos from two separate events to make it look like Moore said something he did not say—comes from Senate Leadership Fund. The Senate Leadership Fund is a group helmed by Steven Law, GOP anti-Trump consultant Karl Rove’s longtime partner at American Crossroads, and is associated with McConnell.

“Who will fight with President Trump to change Washington?” a narrator asks in the new ad. “Not career politician Roy Moore. He’s on the wrong side of Trump’s border wall.”

“I’m going to tell you a little secret: Does it take a wall? I don’t think it would take a wall,” Moore says in video played in the ad.

The ad sounds damning. But in reality, it is not. The video is taken badly out of context, and includes two videos from two separate events spliced together to make it sound like Moore does not support the wall—when he actually does.
