Flake’s support for Doug Jones comes after a plethora of allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore, Jones’ Republican opponent. Not everyone is convinced of Moore’s innocence. While the Alabama Republican Senate candidate claims the accusations are politically motivated, certain conservatives don’t think so.
Republicans like Mitt Romney have come out against Moore and furthermore stated that Moore’s victory would serve as a “stain” on the GOP and the nation.
How Does America Feel About Flake’s Check To Jones?
Many Americans expressed great displeasure regarding Flake’s check to Jones. The majority of Flake’s critics believe Moore is innocent. The timing of the accusations against the Alabama Senate candidate have come into question also. Many Moore supporters believe Democrats will stoop to any means to discredit Republicans. Therefore, his $100 check to Jones attracted strong criticism.
However, Flake does have some supporters who agree with his “country over party stance.” Unlike Flake’s critics, some of his supporters view his act as brave and heroic. Many conservative Flake supporters have also affirmed that having a Democrat in office is better than an (alleged) child molester.
Both groups of people have made their viewpoints loud and clear via social media:
Oh fuck off, already. If you're not helping to remove the Orange Hellbeast or preventing this egregious assault on our children, our parents in this #TaxScam bill, you're as useful as a three-legged mule.

If more people acted with a modicum of decency, many of our ‘problems’ would disappear.
