Stumping in Alabama, former Steve Bannon said Alabama GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore served honorably and with integrity in the military while Mitt Romney skirted military service, citing his Mormon religion.

“You hid behind your religion,” Mr. Bannon, a once-top adviser to President Donald Trump, said.

He added that Mr. Romney’s five sons also avoided service — though, unlike their father, they did not come of age when the U.S. had a military draft.

“Where were the Romneys during the wars?” he said. “Judge Moore has more integrity in his pinky finger.”

Mr. Trump, 71, also came of age during the Vietnam War era and did not serve in the U.S. military. He received a deferment over bone spurs.
