Wow! A senate candidate with a history of sex with a slew of underage girls, can’t help but think this guy is toast. The fact that he held some far out positions we heartily disliked only made the picture in our minds worse. Drum this guy out of the race! The praise of the Washington Post’s reporting in exposing this “pedophile” to use a term prevalent on all the cable shows, only works to seal the deal. That this goes back 35-40 years ago doesn’t matter, these gals are telling the truth. But a press conference held by the candidate Roy Moore’s team planted some small seeds of doubt. We fully expected to see each of Moore’s supporters and other supporters such as Breitbart contentions smacked down by the Post and others. We’re still waiting.
The slew of underage girls turns out to be just one. The others range from 16 to 28. True for the most part Moore was considerably older and this is frowned on in certain circles, but it isn’t illegal in Alabama. College faculties might be decimated if we carted off faculty members dating their young students to the hoosegow. Remember college freshman range from 16-20 with 18 as the median. May-December may not be our cup of tea but hardly shocking. A teacher or professor having a relationship with his or her student on its face implies unequal power and should be discouraged, but its hard to see this in the Moore case. None of these people worked for or were dependent in any way on the then Assistant DA., Moore.
