Who are these creepy old senators?

Roy Moore, the controversial former chief justice of Alabama’s supreme court who seems to have had a life-long penchant for very young girls, news of which contributed to his loss to Democrat Doug Jones for the senate seat in 2018, has said that he will run again, much to the consternation of Donald Trump and the Republican party leadership who had thought that this was a senate seat that they would easily recapture in 2020 with any extreme Republican candidate who was not tainted by suspected pedophilia. That seems to be the only line that they draw.

They have vowed to try and stop him from winning the Republican nomination in the primary but I was struck by a comment from one of the current Republican senators who was appalled by the prospect of having Moore as a colleague. Sen. Martha McSally (R-Arizona) was quoted as saying, “Give me a break. This place has enough creepy old men,”

Who are these creepy old senators? Inquiring minds want names, Martha!

    @1 and @2 are being far too restrictive. I’d suggest everyone who is a thug (republican), or who is male, or who is 30 years old or older.

    Of course that last condition eliminates all so-called Senators. This is a feature, not a bug. A Senate without Senators would presumably completely stop the so-called “legislative” branch from working (e.g., no bills could be passed, no appointments could be confirmed, and other, perhaps less desirable things, such as no more treaties could be ratified and impeachment isn’t possible). However, the general difference between a legislative branch which cannot work, and the current situation of one which isn’t working, is perhaps minimal — and there could be a case for not paying the critters since they cannot actually being doing anything… </snark>

    It’s weird nobody in the comments yet thinks any of the older male Democrats are also creepy old senators. I mean, come on. Biden was a Democratic senator.
