Janet Porter, spokesperson for Roy Moore, alleges plots and lies in combative interviews
Janet Porter, a spokesperson for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, has drawn national attention for a series of combative television interviews in which she sparred with hosts while struggling to answer questions.
Porter, a conservative political consultant from Ohio, represented Moore during two CNN interviews in the last week. The most recent was with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who grilled her on allegations Moore had improper sexual contact with teenage girls in the 1970s, as well as the GOP nominee’s controversial stances on issues such as transgender rights and same-sex marriage.
Porter said the allegations against Moore were a collusion of Democrats, the media, the pro-abortion lobby and Democratic backer George Soros.
“Can you just explain to me how all these people got together and came up with this plot against Roy Moore?” Cooper asked.
“When you have false allegations that are generated by ‘The Washington Post‘ there tends to be a pile on,” Porter replied. “That’s how a lynch mob works.”
Porter struggled to answer Cooper’s other questions regarding Moore’s beliefs.
“Does judge Moore still believe that homosexual conduct should be illegal, and homosexuality is still the same thing as beastiality?” Cooper asked.
“I can’t answer that question,” she replied. “I can tell you what he does believe regarding that issue. If you want to talk about making sure we don’t have sexual predators.”
Porter was also asked about Moore’s comments that the terrorist attacks of 9/11 were a result of America distancing “ourselves from God.”
“A lot of people talk about God and how they’re Christians,” Porter replied. “In fact, if you look at the commercials of Roy Moore’s opponent, he’s telling everybody what a great Christian and he is and how he defends the Second Amendment.”
“You don’t know the answer about 9/11 either?” Cooper asked.
“I don’t know the answer about 9/11, no,” Porter said.

Porter had appeared on CNN earlier in the week where she sparred with host Poppy Marlow.
Porter didn’t directly answer Marlow’s questions related to the sexual abuse allegations but said “if people of legal age share a meal together it’s none of my business.”
She referred to Moore’s opponent, former federal prosecutor Doug Jones, as “abortion Jones” before congratulating Marlow, who is pregnant.
“Congratulations on your unborn child,” Porter said. “That’s the reason why I came down here as a volunteer to speak for Judge Roy Moore, because he stands for the rights of babies like yours in the womb, where his opponent will support killing them until the moment of birth.”
Marlow thanked her and then proceeded with questions until Porter again referenced the reporter’s baby and Jones’ stance on abortion.
“Let’s leave my child out of this,” Harlow replied.
“Well, it’s really the children of Alabama that we’re talking about,” Porter shot back “and the Alabamians understand that if we’re talking about what’s at stake here, we’re talking about fake allegations, concocted stories, about an innocent man versus the real threat of child abuse.”
