DescriptionNewly elected Alabama Congressman Barry Moore has deleted his personal Twitter account following two controversial tweets that appeared to inject a racial element into Wednesday’s mob assault on the U.S. Capitol.

Attention was drawn to the Tweets on Sunday by journalist Jamie Dupree. In one, Moore commented that “we have more arrests for stealing a podium on Jan. 6th than we do for stealing an election on November 3rd” and went on to say that “Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Detroit would be places I recommend you start.”

In the other, Moore referred to the case of Ashli Babbitt, a military veteran shot by Capitol Police while she was among people trying to force their way into the House Chamber. “I understand it was a black police officer that shot the white female veteran,” tweeted Moore, A Republican from Enterprise. “You know that doesn’t fit the narrative.”
