Sex Crime Allegations Against Roy Moore
« on: November 09, 2017, 09:15:49 pm »
https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/woman-says-roy-moore-initiated-sexual-encounter-when-she-was-14-he-was-32/2017/11/09/1f495878-c293-11e7-afe9-4f60b5a6c4a0_story.html?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.b77e554604cb

And this isn't just a single drive-by accusation, either. WaPo did a feature in-depth on Moore. They've clearly been sitting on this story for a while getting the facts together. When you factor in the Weinstein fallout, this could very easily sink Moore.

It's Alabama they'll still vote him in over a Democrat.

Pretty much but hold on people.  The Great Turtle is saying that if these allegations are true, Moore needs to step aside.

Ironbite-that's powerful.

McCain's not happy either:

Quote from: John McCain
The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of.

Notice how McCain isn't adding an "if true" qualifier regarding the allegations. McConnell seems to be playing the Good Cop here, which suggests they're going to take a hardline stance on Moore. Not a shocker considering Moore isn't the most popular fellow.

I wonder if the Senate will exercise its authority to control its own membership and refuse to seat Moore.

That's a good one.

46 Dems, 2 Independents, some Republicans not running for reelection like McCain, Flake and Corker?

Not saying they will, just saying that it's not entirely unthinkable.

Remember how Breitbart took a tough stance against pedophilia and ran all those stories about the "Pizzagate?" I guess they should be REALLY pissed about Roy Moore.

...Oops: https://www.mediamatters.org/blog/2017/11/09/breitbart-runs-defense-after-women-say-roy-moore-made-sexual-advances-while-they-were-teenagers/218500

Oh yeah, Moore isn't a Democrat so Breitbart is defending him. So are some other Republicans: http://time.com/5017940/roy-moore-sexual-contact-underage-jesus-defense-jim-ziegler/ BECAUSE JESUS!
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

The GOP as a whole seems to be distancing itself from him, given that the NRSC won't raise funds for him anymore.

He's still running, he'll still win. He'll get arrested and they'll do another vote to replace him with another Republican senator.

And these women are just coming to tell their story now after almost 40 years.

It's Deja vu-- all over again. The same dirty trick they tried against Trump after he won the primaries. Which btw those women who had been recruited and paid to make the false allegations all disappeared after Trump was elected president.

The WaPo's scurrilous attempt to smear the judge... and a ploy to SUPPRESS THE VOTE... could end up backfiring by causing Moore's constituency in Alabama to redouble their support and efforts.

Not making that up.

God I hope the GOP understands the pandora's box they're opening here with letting this idiot continue to run.

Ironbite-cause I can see what's coming.

They don't have a choice. He won the primary; he's running. They can't force him to drop out.

Most they could do is refuse to seat him if he wins.

Knowing Trump, they were probably disappeared.
