    On Thursday, the Washington Post had a bombshell story accusing Alabama Republican U.S. Senate nominee Roy Moore of sexually abusing a teenage girl was he was 32. Moore for his part denies the accusations and launched an attack, through a spokesman, on the Washington Post.

    Here are the 5 things you need to know about this story.


    This is the current way to try to discredit anyone seeking election (or other...) these days. Wait until the person gets positioned then launch any kind of smear against them I wonder if GOP will try to come up with a child-molesting or murder or such against the guy elected in Virginia the other night...?

    know one fact.
    the allegation is devastating.
    career over.
    reputation ruined.
    if this is true, and he was fondling a 14 year old child, prison at the least.
    if it is a lie, the same fate should be waiting for the author or authors of the bogus charge.

    Couple things wrong with the article.
    Yes, it is to late to take him off the ballot, but if he steps down any and all votes for him will not be counted.

    The “write in candidate” cannot be someone that lost a primary like Strange and list themselves as an Independent. If Moore Steps down a Republican, can be placed on the ballot as a”Wright in as a Republican”, if Moore tell McConnell and the establishment to pound sand, they cannot add Strange as a write in independent or a Republican.

    What I don't get is accusers from (as an example) 20 then 15 then 25 and finally 37 years or whatever, all come out of the woodwork simultaneously claiming unwanted sexual advances all at once on these candidates or famous persons. I mean if there's women who have waited from between 8-50 years to charge these people in 2017 (again, for example) whats the sudden motivation? If Roy did something to a 14yr old when he was 32 he should have had that accusation on the books then to protect the women who came after, if it's even true.

    Herman Cain can give insight to that,
    whether punishment happened or a million dollar home in FL was given.

    If you recall this played out on President-elect Trump. Suddenly, they all vanished after it was deemed fake news. I hope Moore is being railroaded and stands his ground if this is another demoncrat diversion.

    Feminists gained control of the education-industrial complex 30 years ago. Since then, they have been filling young, impressionable women's heads with Victimhood tripe. They are turning them loose on society now. In actuality feminists may be creating rape fatigue in the public minds.

    I'm not so invested in this but agree like this and SO many others are coming forward to accuse people for things 30-40 YEARS ago!!! I think either they see others getting attention (did you see this gang !) and are jealous, someone (dem) paid and put them up to it, or it's BS. You just don't wait 40 years! Why did no one stand up before?

    And Judge Roy seems to be a very zealous man on religion. Is that new or all these wimmen trying to tar a man of strong faith? Until I see CONCRETE proof, I'll withhold judgement.

    It is a bit suspicious, isn't it?

    The reason the DNC still uses this tactic is because it works. It got their boy Barry a U.S. Senate seat, which then after being one of the most ineffectual Senators ever, springboarded him to the White House.

    Stephanie McCrummen one of the authors of this expose is a one sided anti Republican writer and has many anti-Republican,anti-Trump tweets.
    and wrote an anti-Trump story in 2016 using a mentally Ill woman as the average "Trump supporter"

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/nati...er633pm:homepage/story&utm_term=.e1e013764d5e

    Beth Reinhard,another of the co-authors is fighting allegations that she "Colluded" with the AL Democrats in writing this story.

    Alice Crites,a third co-author wrote a story not long ago how pinterest had many Russian ads during the Election and needs to be held accountable.
    was a columnist at "Truthout" Progressive blog

    I`m not saying the accusations against Judge Moore are false.
    but the writers of the story are questionable at best they are partisan and Progressives who make no apologies about it.
    and to me remove any credibility in the story they wrote.

    Anyone hear the Hannity interview with Roy Moore this afternoon?

    I'm reserving judgement, but it did bother me a little when Moore couldn't recall if he had dates with a teenage accuser. He didn't flatly deny it......just said he couldn't recall. Now, if it were me, and I had dates with a teenager when I was in my thirties......I damn sure would remember it.

    I want to believe Moore's story, but having a little trouble with it right now.

    They just played that part on Fox News and that wasn't what Moore said. He denied it and said it wasn't part of who he was. He never said he didn't recall.

    “Law says Roy Moore cannot be replaced on December ballot

    While many might think that the obvious replacement to Moore running against Democrat Doug Jones On Dec. 12 would be his Alabama GOP runoff rival and incumbent of the Senate seat Luther Strange, they'd be wrong.

    Moore cannot be replaced on the ballot.

    Alabama law prohibits the replacement of a party candidate up to 76 days before the election.”

    And meanwhile, there's no mention, and there has not been any mention, of Bob Menendez (D) NJ of his corruption and his affairs with underaged prostitutes. Why is this? (rhetorical)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't pedophiles typically abuse numerous victims over a long period of time. Not "one and done". If this allegation were true, I would think that there would be young ladies lined up around the block to jump on this bandwgon.

    Even IF Moore did it, he's not moral enough to join the rest of the pious scumbags in the Senate? (No offense to scumbags intended...)

    Some dems with candy and pictures are still trolling schools to see if they can "find" some more. <nudge-nudge - wink-wink>;)
