The Republican Party's support of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore "is the last straw" for former Breitbart spokesman Kurt Bardella, he wrote in an op-ed for USA Today on Friday.

Bardella, who also worked as a spokesman for Republican Reps. Brian Bilbray and Darrell Issa of California, and Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine, wrote that "President Trump and the Republican National Committee are endorsing, supporting and funding Moore because they would rather elect a sexual predator who preys on underage teenagers at the local mall, than a crime-fighting prosecutor who happens to be a Democrat."

"This is not a party I want to be associated with any longer," Bardella wrote. "This is not a party that is trustworthy enough to protect innocent children from sexual predators."

He adds that "the more time I spent on my own . . . the more I came to realize that Republican positions on the most pressing challenges facing our society were out of alignment with what I believed. This is a party that constantly buries its head in the sand on climate change, racial profiling, guns, LGBTQ equality, income inequality, food insecurity, paid family leave and the treatment of women.

"The embrace of Moore by the Republican Party's top 'leadership' is all the proof you need to know that this is a party that no longer stands for anything."

Bardella added that he believes the Democratic Party "will do more" to protect the First Amendment, the environment, and natural resources than the GOP "ever would," and concludes that Democrats' "portrait of America is better than the one being painted by today's Republican Party. And I want to be a part of it."
