Roy Moore accused of sexual harassment and underage dating


I have no idea what y'all did to get the last thread removed, but you'd better not do it here! Mods, since that was my thread, and I am starting a new thread, I guess you can keep that old thread locked.

I started this new thread mainly because there is BIG news regarding Mr. Moore:

Mitch McConnell just said that he "believes the women" and that Moore should "step aside".

https://www.dailykos.com/...step-aside

I have to give McConnell a thumbs up! for that. I really do. Because it would have been way more politically expedient for him to root for a Moore victory, and then lead the Senate in a refusal to seat Moore. This would have resulted in the Alabama governor - a Republican - appointing someone to fill Moore's seat. Obviously, that someone would be a Republican; therefore, the GOP holds the seat.

But if Moore actually quits the race, the only way the GOP wins that seat is if a write-in candidate can defeat Democratic nominee Doug Jones. That's a very, very long shot. IMO, it would take someone like Jeff Sessions, who would have to resign as Attorney General and hope against hope that he wins as a write-in candidate. As much as Sessions appears to detest our genius president, I don't see him qutting the AG post.

In case you missed it, over the weekend a woman who worked with Moore during the time he was trolling malls and high school football games for dates said that everyone in the office knew Moore trolled malls and high school football games for dates, and they thought that was creepy and weird. But they were afraid to say anything, since he was their superior.

Also, a guy that dated Leigh Corfman said that she told him back in 2009 about Moore putting the moves on her when she was 14. He said the story Ms. Corfman told him in 2009 is the exact same story that we're hearing today.

OK, that's the new news. Keep this thread on-topic! It's about Roy Moore. It is NOT about whatever y'all did to get the last one tanked. So keep it about Roy Moore and only Roy Moore. Thanks in advance.

The thing that is so depraved about this is that he was a DA when he committed his crimes. Surely using his skills to prey on these young girls. Hopefully the people of Alabama have a concience on this one. No more sexual predators please.

one thing I read said that the Senate can block his taking a seat. Another one said that the Govoner could move the election date to allow him to be removed. I do not think he will win. If he wins I do not think he will last. I hope not! I do think this could cause the states to pass laws allowing a change for cause... so you would still vote for that person but it would be someone else that was being elected.

Some are saying that some of them are 16 or over and that 16 is the age of consent in Alabama... but so what? The keyword is still consent... and several were 14 or 15.

It’s also wrong, as the term ‘virgin’ indicates. But this is all so surreal, that nothing surprises me anymore...

As Roy Moore himself predicted last week, another story of his pubescent predatory prowling comes to light:

https://www.dailykos.com/...serve-this


Another woman has come forward to say that Alabama Republican Roy Moore sexually pursued and assaulted her when she was a teenager. At a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred, Beverly Young Nelson described how Moore moved from flirting with her, to signing her yearbook in creepy fashion, to assaulting her when she was a teenager waitressing at a Gadsden, Alabama, restaurant where Moore was a regular.

Nelson read a statement describing how, one cold night when her boyfriend was late to pick her up from work, Moore offered her a ride, then parked between a dumpster and a building and “reached over and began groping me and putting his hands on my breasts.” When she tried to get out of the car, Moore locked the door, grabbed her by the neck, and tried to force her head down onto his crotch. When Nelson continued to struggle, Moore finally opened the door and, she says, she’s not sure if she fell out of the car or he pushed her out. He drove away leaving her on the ground, and Nelson quit her job at the restaurant the next day, covering the bruises on her neck with makeup.

Nelson told her younger sister about the attack two years later, told her husband before they were married, and also told her mother. She and her husband were Trump supporters, she says, and her decision to come forward “has nothing to do with Republicans or Democrats.” Rather, it “has everything to do with Mr. Moore’s sexual assault when I was a teenager.” She came forward because of the courage of other women in coming forward first, showing her that she wasn’t Moore’s only victim.

Mr. Moore attacked me when I was a child. I did nothing to deserve this,” Nelson concluded, before Allred displayed Nelson’s yearbook signed by Moore with comments calling the then-teen “beautiful,” and a signature that matches recent signatures by Moore.

Something I find interesting:

The Moonbat Wing of the GOP - led by Steve "You'll never be known as Race" Bannon - is using the same old tired defense that "the Bezos/Amazon/Washington Post is librullll!!!1!!111!!!" Which ties in with Perverted Uncle Roy Moore's assertion that "the timing of this sucks and this is all political, y'all!!!1!!11!!!"

HOWEVER........

This ain't the Washington Post's first rodeo. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you





Former Oregon GOP senator Bob Packwood!

As you may or may not recall, Senator Packwood was forced to resign in 1995, after it was learned that he was a serial sexual harrasser. But the Washington Post actually found out about this BEFORE his 1992 re-election. However, they did not feel their story was sourced well enough for publication. So they held it until AFTER the 1992 election, which Packwood won with 52.1% of the vote.

So here we have an example of the WaPo holding a story about sexual harrassment relating to a Republican senator until after his re-election campaign.

Kind of hard to call the WaPo a partisan hack newspaper, based in its history in these kinds of things.

He has been removed from office numerous times throughout his political career and always gets re elected by the people of Alabama. The more the established GOP attacks him the more the locals will support and vote for him.

Moore is gonna help Drumpf drain that swamp.

Local residents: Moore was known for flirting with, dating teenage girls

-

-

Residents of the county where GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore was once the assistant district attorney say it was common knowledge that he would flirt with and try to date teenage girls, The New Yorker and Alabama news source AL.com reported Monday.

-

Local residents told AL.com that Moore had a reputation for approaching teenage girls long before last week's bombshell Washington Post report alleged he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his early 30s.

-

One woman, Wendy Miller, told AL.com that Moore approached her at a local mall in 1977, when she was 14 and working there as a Santa's helper.

-

She said that Moore told her she looked pretty and asked her out two years later, when she was 16, but her mother wouldn't allow her to go on the dates.

-

"Him liking and dating young girls was never a secret in Gadsden when we were all in high school," Sheryl Porter, an Etowah County resident, told AL.com. Moore was the assistant district attorney for the county in the late 1970s and early 80s.

-

"In our neighborhoods up by Noccalula Falls we heard it all the time. Even people at the courthouse know it was a well-known secret," Porter said.

-

Another longtime resident, Blake Usry, told the publication that he knew several girls that Moore had approached at the mall.

-

Usry said that when he was a teenager, he often saw Moore at the mall.

-

"He would go and flirt with all the young girls," he said. "It'd seem like every Friday or Saturday night [you'd see him] walking around the mall, like the kids did."

-

Residents told The New Yorker that rumors about Moore's behavior at a local mall had circulated for years.

-

Jason Nelms, who visited the Gadsden Mall often when he was a teenager, told the magazine that managers at the movie theater used to joke about keeping an eye on kids that would hang out outside the building.

-

"Anyway, when asked why they had to keep an eye outside, they said that some older guy had been trying to pick up younger girls. They didn't go beyond that but one of the concession workers whispered to us later that it was Roy Moore he was talking about," Nelms said.

-

Greg Legat, who worked at a store in the mall in the early 1980s, said that his bosses had told him to keep an eye out for Moore.

-

The new reports come just hours after Beverly Young Nelson became the fifth woman to come forward with misconduct allegations against Moore, saying he sexually assaulted her when she was 16.

-

GOP leaders, including top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell (Ky.), are calling on Moore to drop out of the race following the allegations. Republican Sens. John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah) and Ted Cruz (Texas) have all rescinded their endorsements, and Cruz said Moore should face criminal prosecution if the claims are true.

-

Sen. Cory Gardner (Colo.), the chairman of the Senate GOP campaign arm, says the chamber should expel Moore if he wins the special election next month.

-

Moore is facing off against Democrat Doug Jones in the race for the Senate seat once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions (R). The vote is scheduled for Dec. 12.

-

-

I guess all these fine folks (men and women) in Alabama are in on the liberal media witch hunt too... lol lol lol

I think that must be our president's motto. Any press, is good press. If it's not, he sure lives like it. lol

This is sort of off topic but I've been amazed at how effective the GOP has been through decades of making the republican brand synonymous with God or Christianity. There are people right now in Alabama ACTUALLY STRUGGLING whether or not to vote for this guy vs. the democrat, Doug Jones I think his name is. It's as if they think they'll go to hell for voting for someone who's not republican. lol lol

-

Of course they can write-in someone else but unless it's an organized effort, Roy Moore could still very well win. Thankfully, the leaders in the GOP have tools they can legally use to ensure he doesn't serve in the Senate.

I kinda think he will be elected. Let's hope the GOP can have him removed, but I don't hold out any hope of that. Once he's in, he's in.
