Oops! GOP frantic to dump Roy Moore after sex scandal

RNS COMMANDMENT JUDGE

Because of this:

Two of Corfman’s childhood friends say she told them at the time that she was seeing an older man, and one says Corfman identified the man as Moore. Wells says her daughter told her about the encounter more than a decade later, as Moore was becoming more prominent as a local judge.

Aside from Corfman, three other women interviewed by The Washington Post in recent weeks say Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s, episodes they say they found flattering at the time, but troubling as they got older. None of the three women say that Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual contact.

Wendy Miller says she was 14 and working as a Santa’s helper at the Gadsden Mall when Moore first approached her, and 16 when he asked her on dates, which her mother forbade. Debbie Wesson Gibson says she was 17 when Moore spoke to her high school civics class and asked her out on the first of several dates that did not progress beyond kissing. Gloria Thacker Deason says she was an 18-year-old cheerleader when Moore began taking her on dates that included bottles of Mateus Rosé wine. The legal drinking age in Alabama was 19.

I don’t think this story makes a real difference. I mean, it’s Alabama. All he’s got to do is say he begged Jesus for forgiveness, and the same evangelicals will support him. But prominent Republican hypocrites like Mitch McConnell (who didn’t care at all about Trump) are frantic. After all, they’re badly spooked by Tuesday’s election results, and several Republican senators have said if the stories are true (even if a 14-year-old thought she was giving consent, it’s still a crime), Moore needs to drop out.

The problem is, it’s too late to get Moore off the ballot. Even if Republicans manage to put together a write-in campaign for Luther Strange, who Moore defeated in the GOP primary, odds are it will only split the vote and give the win to Democrat Doug Jones.

Hahaha! Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.

    He will not step down, he will continue to run. And then he will probably win. If he does, will Mitch McConnell not seat him in the Senate? I’ll bet things are so close they’ll do it.

    The people of Alabama are an embarrassment to the country.
    At least those people in Alabama who continue to support pedophile Roy Moore.

    In general Moore’s support comes from two groups.
    White Supremacists and Evangelical Christians.

    That same coalition played a major role in the Confederate States of America.

    Evangelical Christians everywhere should be ashamed of themselves.

    The R’s bought this guy, lock, stock, and barrel. Let ’em lay in the bed they made for themselves; they knew who he was when he won the primary and said nothing. So, grab some popcorn and watch the Party Of Pedophiles squirm and wiggle for the next 12 months as they try to un-glue themselves from the Banonnites.

    Moore is a big deal to Bannon and his crew, and the senate seat he’s running for is Sessions’ old seat, and it would be a mighty blow to them if it was won by a Democrat, so watch closely as the knives come out.
    Seriously, watch their tactics here, it will be the measure of what they can actually do, politically.
    Strange won’t help them win. There’s a reason he lost the primary. He stopped Bentley from getting impeached and was rewarded with the senate seat, and even in Alabama, folks didn’t like that.
