Roy Moore, the 70-year-old Senate candidate from Alabama is convinced his supporters are stupid. He has vehemently denied the accusations of the initial four women that accused him of sexual harassment and assault, one of the girls was 14 at the time which even in Alabama was a crime. Moore was 32. The last time I dated a 17-year old, I was 19 and we were both in college.
Then a fifth accuser came forward, speaking publicly and volunteering to testify under oath before a Senate Committee should one have balls enough to have a hearing. She says she met him at the restaurant where she worked and that he was a regular customer. He says he’s never been to the restaurant and doesn’t know where it is. She describes various times she encountered him including when he offered her a ride home and tried to force her head into his crotch and finally literally threw her out of the parked car. He says they never met. She says he told her…
“You are a child. I am the District Attorney of Etowah County If you tell anyone about this, no one will believe you.”
He alleges it’s all a liberal Democrat plot. She voted for Trump. Somebody is lying. If only there were some way to determine who was telling the truth. Oh, wait! He signed her high school yearbook! He indicated he knew her, indicated the restaurant they were at he’d swore he’d never patronized, reminded her he was the District Attorney.
“To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A. 12-22-77 Olde Hickory House.”
If that weren’t enough, dozens of people including in law enforcement indicate Roy Moore was banned from the Gadsden Mall for cruising teenage girls. Plainly spoken Roy Moore is a pedophile, stunted in his emotional development to where he could only communicate with those half his age, with little experience. It’s only a matter of time before more women tell their stories, #MeToo.
If you are one of those who still stand by Roy Moore in spite of all that you now know. If you are one of his surrogates who continue to condemn the women that have come forward, calling them liars and impugning their motives. If you are one of those who said, “Even if true” or “It was over 40 years ago” or suggested in any way that it really doesn’t matter. If your ideology would have you prefer a Republican pedophile whose already demonstrated his lack of respect for the law and court system, his bigotry, and homophobia than any Democrat. If you are so obtuse that simply proclaiming, “Fake News” is enough to erase any number of real and demonstrable acts. Fuck you very much!
