Democrats have been falling all over themselves to attack Republicans in the wake of the accusations that broke against Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore. Media has been covering it non-stop.
It’s understandably a story. Moore was accused of inappropriate conduct with a 14-year-old some 39 years ago, when he was 32. He also was accused of trying to date three other women aged 16, 17 and 18 at around the same time.
No one wants a Senator who may act inappropriately with a 14-year-old if the story is true.
But will Democrats and media turn the same attention to this story, when it involves a Democrat?
David Alcon is a Democrat running for Congress from the second district in New Mexico.
But he made the local news recently when a warrant was issued for him for allegedly stalking a woman.
From Free Beacon:
The woman, who attended a Halloween party at a hotel in Santa Fe on Oct. 28, said she started receiving persistent text messages from Alcon—one with a picture of his genitals, some suggesting that he was watching her, and others professing his love for her.
The woman said later that night he texted her that he was outside her apartment.
Santa Fe police issued a warrant for his arrest on October 30. But he failed to turn himself in.
Albuquerque Police finally arrested him at the Villa De San Felipe Apartments when they were called there for a welfare check on Friday, November 10. It was unclear what he was doing there. Police did not elaborate, but he is not facing any additional charges from Albuquerque.
His campaign has not commented on the story as of yet.
The kicker to this whole story?
He was previously convicted of aggravated stalking a woman in 2007. At that time, the Deputy DA in charge of the case said Alcon was previously convicted of domestic violence, battery, assault and violation of a restraining order.
It’s just beginning to break into the national news now.
So Democrats in New Mexico were cool with a candidate running who actually was convicted of stalking a woman.
When will they be disavowing him?
