Judge Roy Moore’s victory in the Republican Senate primary in Alabama means one of the most controversial figures in American politics is poised to become a United States senator. These are some of the most inflammatory comments from the man who was twice removed from his former position as chief justice of the Alabama supreme court and revved up a supportive crowd on the eve of the election by brandishing a gun on stage at a rally.

SAMPLE TEXT Reporter Who Said "Fuck It" and Quit on Live TV Now Faces 54 — Not 24 — Years in Prisonn September 2014, reporter Charlo Greene famously said "fuck it, I quit" on live Alaskan television after admitting she founded the Alaska Cannabis Club during a news segment on the Club. In November the same year, the state legalized marijuana, proposing people merely be fined, not jailed, if caught in public with the drug. Rules for retail and regulation of cannabis were not written clearly however, Green argues — "otherwise I wouldn’t be going through this, but the intent was no one should be going to jail over a plant" — and because the law only went into effect 90 days later, she was charged with six criminal offenses of misconduct involving a controlled substance in the meanwhile. Originally charged last year with eight criminal offenses of the same, last week, Greene learned she now faces up to 54 years for the additional charges she was originally unaware of.

Reporters go viral all the time for unusual on-air behavior. Why do you think your segment blew up the way it did? I didn’t know at the time it would reach beyond Alaska! It was just to make voters aware of the fact that real people were being affected by our marijuana laws. Any time anyone recognizes me as the “Fuck it, I quit” lady, it’s not just about that moment or the laugh that they got out of it. They say, “It’s refreshing to see someone take a stand for what they believe in.” It was bold. And it was real. Do people approach you often? All the time. I’m traveling all around the world — I was just flown out to Ireland to speak at the Global Cannabis Summit. I’ve been to Spain and Jamaica and Canada, everywhere. In Spain, there was this guy who didn’t speak a lick of English, but who ran up to me and handed me this huge nug of weed and was like, “Fuck it, I quit! Fuck it, I quit!” [Laughs.] It was really cool. It happens all the time.
