Sen. Jeff Flake writes check to Alabama Democratic Senate candidate

Sen. Jeff Flake tweeted 'Country over party' and showed a picture showing a check he wrote to Roy Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake appears to be reaching across the aisle to show his disgust for the Republican Party's support of accused sexual predator Roy Moore for Alabama's U.S. Senate seat.

Flake tweeted a photo of a check made out to Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, Tuesday afternoon.

The text of the tweet simply read "Country over Party."

Moore has been accused by multiple women of sexually assaulting them while they were under the age of 18 and he was in his 30s.

President Donald Trump, who has sexual misconduct accusations in his own past, had kept quiet on whether he supported Moore until last week. He became more vocal, declaring his support for the GOP Senate candidate via Twitter, followed by the Republican Party's decision to support Moore again after cutting ties weeks ago.
