Replacing Moore on the Ballot

Bypassing Moore on the Ballot

Opposing Moore on the Ballot

Expelling Moore from the Senate

If [Moore] were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath and it would be a rather unusual beginning, probably an unprecedented beginning.

This promise from the GOP might be the best way that leadership can signal to Republican voters that they can vote for Moore despite the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against him. If he is elected, they will handle the problem.
