Can anyone explain to me why….

GOP voters are so attracted to bible thumping hypocrites, perverts and self admitted pussy grabbers?

Folks, it seems like once the perv politician starts thumping on the bible, otherwise sensible, rational people take complete leave of their senses. In my opinion, the framers of the constitution were very wise to include the First amendment and its accompanying 6 freedoms in the Constitution, including freedom from state sponsored religion, not that 45% of Americans can even name that freedom let alone the other five.

Maybe one day people will learn to run like hell when a politician starts playing preacher man but probably not in my lifetime.

  1. To be honest the last few months have shown that liberals and conservatives are caught up in the bad bed side manners. It is hard to be human. Since the biblical times these things have gone on now it has become a way to trap the wealthy into huge settlements. Just being the devils advocate!

    1. Since biblical times lots of horrible things have gone on but humans have gradually instituted laws to try to prevent them. Break the laws and there are consequences. I would not call the consequences traps but your mileage may vary. Still, it is remarkable how many of the preachy pols turn out to be total hypocrites. Back in biblical times they were aptly known as whited sepulchers.

    2. True dat (See Anthony Wiener) but you don’t see the Democrats like Wiener using that old time religion to get votes, that is pretty much a GOP phenomenon, especially in the South.

      As far as suing the only one of the three I linked that has been sued is Robert Bentley and that was by his former wife of 50 years when she sued him for divorce along the people he terminated in his attempt to cover up his extra martial affair with Rebecca Mason.

      Used to be the GOP was the political party that kept Big Brother out of people’s bedrooms. Today, they want to regulate how we use the toilet. Its a sad state of affairs all the way around.

      Peggy, interesting history lesson. Maybe if we stoned a few of these hypocrites old school style the rest would shy away from using the bible as a vote getting tool. On a personal note, my own opinion is those that live their faiths, as opposed to those that proclaim it, are the most effective ambassadors of their religious beliefs.

  2. This has been one sex riddled news feeding frenzy this month with our so called entertainers, now the politicians.
    If these alleged predators are guilty of the charges, they need to be axed.
    However, it is curious, at least in the political arena, that these allegations always seem to come out during an election cycle.
    The victims need to report these attacks when they happen, not years later when they guy is running for office. That would at least keep voters from getting involved in phony campaigns that leaves egg on everyone’s face and a whole lot less money in their pockets.
    AND, this newsfeed also takes everyone’s attention off of the real issues at hand.
    Now, the entertainment industry. Please don’t anyone post here that they are shocked that this goes on in that environment.

    1. The entertainers (and celebrity chefs) are not analogous with the evangelical politicians beyond the sexual component. All that said when the sexual harassment scandal hit Congress it showed the scope of that problem as well.

      One thing that connects the two issues is a lack of respect, for people of faith’s sincerely held religious beliefs and for women. Politicians like Roy Moore would never use religion to get votes if they truly respected their purported faith. Of course, Moore didn’t respect his own oath of office as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court so this latest news about him allegedly fondling a 14 year old (along with three other very young women) surprises me not in the least bit.

      As for the entertainers Slabbed has a long history of dissing them. Don’t get me started on Kevin Spacey….. :mrgreen:

  3. O kay, bear with me. I just read the girl’s account of her “encounters” with Roy Moore. To be honest, I am having a little trouble with her story. At 14, she met him around the corner from her house, drove 30 minutes out of town. That’s another 30 minutes back not counting the time she claims they spent together. I would have been looking for my 14 year old daughter by then, and I guaranty you I would have gotten to the bottom of it. I know nothing about this man, but this is not selling on me.
    I could be totally wrong, and have no use for men like that, but I am just not getting the vibes that she is telling the truth.
    Whether or not she is, she has ruined someone’s reputation. That is very serious. Very. And the timing is suspicious. I am understanding better why she didn’t report it then. She went off with him twice voluntarily, if this happened at all.
    No wonder only 35% of registered voters go to the polls. People are growing weary of politics and especially campaigns.

    1. Earlier this morning GMA ran a segment with a NYT reporter on how the Louis CK wanker story made the NY Times, as ostensibly opposed to the hosts of websites that have already reported on it going back a decade. She leaves out the part about the stars being aligned but otherwise this is what she said:

      1. The women Louis CK beat off in front of came forward by name and gave the NYT names of their friends and family that were aware of the CK’s bizarre behavior at the time it happened.

      2. The NYT interviewed those people with an eye towards spotting any discrepancies in the story.

      3. The stories lined up where the NYT felt it could run the story.

      The above is standard interviewing techniques used by journalists, law enforcement, CFEs etc etc etc.

      WaPo did all those same things with now 53 YO, then 14 year old Leigh Corfman and the then three other teenage girls who all alleged the same bad behavior out of Roy Moore, behavior that their friends and family were also contemporaneously aware. In Corfman’s case Moore used his official position as an ADA to take advantage of her when she was a 14 year old. Its disgusting and indefensible behavior.

      The fact is and the point of this post is that politicians like Roy Moore and his enablers are doing Satan’s work on earth leading otherwise faithful people astray. Matthew 18:6 is clearly applicable here.

      Two lesser points that also bear saying is self professed Evangelicals like Roy Moore are the exact reason millennials are leaving established religion in droves and based on the examples being set its hard to fault them for that.

      The other point is that some of the very same people now defending Roy Moore were also pushing the preposterous pizza gate story that the far right lapped up like it was Obama’s birth certificate. Ever wonder what the purveyors of trash like Roy Moore and Pizzagate really think about their marks?

  4. The Hollywood types and alternative life style people (Libs) demand respect of each individual and human dignity and the Conservatives preach religion they are one in the same when breached. So I don’t get the GOP branding as worse because of how they hid it. This labeling is only for the public violators. either way they erred. Most don’t come out until the affair didn’t work or after they made shit loads of money.

    1. Thanks for posting French’s article, Peggy. It raises even more questions.
      First of all, French states clearly that he really does not know if Moore is guilty, then goes on a few paragraphs later to say how dangerous he is.
      He claims that the women did not go to the press, the press reached out to them. How did they find them?
      What is terribly troubling in French’s story is he claim that there were witnesses at the time who knew what was going on!!!
      Why didn’t they report this? I would say they were enabling Moore, or aiding and abetting a criminal. My goodness, this child was 14.
      French ends his article with a strong statement that Moore is guilty, and should expelled from public service.
      I have no problem with that, but I think it is criminal to waste all of this information and declarations from witnesses and stop short of prosecuting Moore for this. He committed a crime, and SOMEONE, like maybe a DA should seat a Grand Jury, subpoena these witnesses, and take him to court.
      He can’t just be put out of a political race, and that serve as justice for him. No way. This is a serious crime they are charging him with and the proper authorities need to pick him up, and start the process. This needs to be taken out of the political arena, and taken to a court of law where it belongs.
      Let’s not try him in the Court of Public Opinion where no one is sworn. Let’s do it the right way, and put him away with all of the other child predators if that can be proven against him.

  5. As right-wing journalist Steve Deace noted, their choice of words was intentional.

    “Judge Moore’s wife, Kayla, informed me today they used the word ‘defamation’ in their statement for a reason — they intend to pursue legal action against the Washington Post,” Deace tweeted.”

    https://www.rawstory.com/2017/11/roy-moores-wife-says-shes-going-to-sue-the-washington-post-for-defamation-over-sexual-abuse-allegations/

    What are the chances?

    Puffery and false promises?

    Will the Moores be praying to rebiblican Jeebus for protection against discovery disasters?

    Is Judge Roy “Ten Commandments” Moore planning on adding a new chapter to “Bonfire of the Vanities”?

    Will his fundraising go up if the Moores throw in some Medieval Period style pyromania? (The real Bonfire of the Vanities comes to Alabama via Judge Roy Moore covered exclusively by Fox News? Back in the old days no one let a few Boticellis or Medicis get in the way of a man who claimed he was on a mission from God to root out heresies and warn of the impending Apocalypse! https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/when-fanatical-monk-took-over-florence-and-burned-bunch-vanities-180962005/

    DING DING DING!

    Today’s Jeopardy Daily Double answer could be “What is actual malice?”

    1. Just give him his day in court like Dennis Hastert, who was convicted for almost the exact same charges in a Chicago Court and served 15 months in a Minnesota prison.
      Get all parties sworn and allow due process.
      Having to drop out of a campaign is not the sentence any Judge would impose for molestation and statutory rape.
      The accusers, witnesses , and legal authorities in Alabama need to put up or shut up.

      1. First off you’re right, Moore does need to be hauled into court charged with sexual assault. My understanding is since his 14 year old victim was incapable of giving consent, the statute of limitations would not toll on this crime.

        Second this is an election not a prosecution. No question in my mind that 4 different young women terrorized by Moore are telling the truth, just as I believe Kevin Spacey’s many accusers. There is simply no way that many people would get together to conspire against either.

        Third and most important is Moore’s history of disregarding his oath of office when it suits him politically (see his two impeachments from public office). Just like with Crooked Donald Trump a leopard never changes its spots.

        1. You just have to wonder what the legal authorities in Alabama are waiting for??!! With all of the homework (evidence–witnesses) done for them by the press?!
          Who is the Attorney General in that state?

            1. Well, Doug, suffice it to say, within the past week locally we have all witnessed what the Republican Party can produce as candidates?!wink, wink!
              But, I stand by my position that it is time for one of the offended to visit the DA and press charges. Get it done just like Hastert.

              1. You mean Larry “Mini Roy” Smith, former catholic seminarian extraordinaire? I wholeheartedly concur.

        2. Don’t forget Moore’s profiteering from his own “Foundation for Moral Law” con profit! I bet everyone will not be shocked that the Moores have had that “All in the Family” shit going on at the Foundation for Moral Law! (In 2015, a Montgomery-based foundation started by Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore made Moore’s daughter a member of the nonprofit’s board – the latest revelation of ties between the foundation and Moore family members, according to a copy of the foundation’s tax return for that year obtained by the Democratic super PAC American Bridge and verified by AL.com. )

          Undisclosed deal guaranteed Roy Moore $180,000 a year for part-time work at charity

          Former Alabama judge Roy Moore, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, once said publicly that he did not take a “regular salary” from the small charity he founded to promote Christian values because he did not want to be a financial burden.

          But privately, Moore had arranged to receive a salary of $180,000 a year for part-time work at the Foundation for Moral Law, internal charity documents show. He collected more than $1 million as president from 2007 to 2012, compensation that far surpassed what the group disclosed in its public tax filings most of those years.

          When the charity couldn’t afford the full amount, Moore in 2012 was given a promissory note for back pay eventually worth $540,000 or an equal stake of the charity’s most valuable asset, a historic building in Montgomery, Ala., mortgage records show. He holds that note even now, a charity official said.

          https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/undisclosed-deal-guaranteed-roy-moore-180000-a-year-for-part-time-work-at-charity/2017/10/11/5f56679e-a9de-11e7-850e-2bdd1236be5d_story.html

        3. Holy Smokes After Forty?…. Forty? …. Forty? …. Years. ….Really?

          “ Moore needs to be hauled into court and charged with sexual assault……”

          Whatever happened forty years ago should have been raised
          /settled within a year or two of alleged occurrence …should have …could have…. would have …..but didn’t….then it’s moot.

          Oh no , not for the liberal eastern media papers who would alledge things against Jesus Christ if he would run for political office after he dealt blow after blow against the smartest legal Jewish minds over 2,000 years ago….

          The melting snowflakes actually did go out into the night yesterday and scream to the top of their voices on the anniversary of Trump’s victory as therapy…….. holy schiltz and giggles…..can it get any worse than this?

  6. Cue up some of the the Foundation for Moral Law 990s and analysis of same! Apparently the 2014 filing is the latest to examine since the 2015 and 2016 filings are “unavailable”. Is it possibly that Old Roy received some biblical revelation Old Roy exempting these moneychangers from filing?

    LATEST CONPROFIT 990 filing right below!

    FOUNDATION FOR MORAL LAW INC
    1 DEXTER AVENUE, MONTGOMERY, AL 36104-3576 | Tax-exempt since March 2005
    Full text of “Form 990” for fiscal year ending Dec. 2014

    DETAILS ON WHY THE CONPROFIT’s 2014 990 FILING IS THE LATEST AVAILABLE …

    Missing: 2015 – 2016 tax returns for Roy Moore’s Foundation for Moral Law Updated Aug 4, 2017; Posted Aug 4, 2017

    “On Tuesday, the Senate Leadership Fund, an ally of incumbent Senator Luther Strange, released an ad stating that Roy Moore and his wife Kayla Moore had taken more than $1 million in salary out of the Foundation for Moral Law between 2005 and 2013. The foundation is a non-profit Christian legal organization Moore founded 15 years ago. He and his wife have both spent stints as Executive Director and President, while Roy Moore has also acted as an attorney.”

    Seems like their wingnut welfare applications were properly processed and approved.

    Hey wait a minute! Here’s a big coincidence!

    There is a delay in some of the conprofit’s IRS filings?!

    However, one major omission from the Foundations returns was that it had not filed 990s for 2015 or 2016. Filings are supposed to be made at the end of each year. According to IRS rules, organizations that have under $1 million in gross receipts are charged a penalty of $20 per day for each day the return is late, up to a maximum of $10,000. For over $1 million in gross receipts, organizations are charged $100 a day up to a maximum of $50,000. If a company doesn’t file for three straight years it can lose its tax exempt status, according to IRS rules. The Foundation currently has gross receipts under $1 million but has previously had receipts over $1 million.

    As way of explanation, Kayla Moore’s executive assistant said that the organization had a reason for not filing over the last two years. “The accountant that normally does our tax returns has been sick and almost died,” said Jessica Deem. “He has since spoken with the IRS and the missing 2015 return will be filed in the next few days. And we have an extension on the 2016 return.”

    Because of the delay, those filings, which would include any fundraising and expenditures after Moore’s defiance of a court ruling on same-sex marriage, will likely not be made public until after the August 15 primary.

    Anyone care to guess whether Old Roy has been getting paid anyway? Even if they got those 990s backing up like a stopped up shitter?! That Wingnut Welfare is almost guaranteed one you get hold of that tit so far as I can see.

    I think this story was written before word got out about the promissory notes they’d been paying Old Roy with. Ka ching!

  7. If you really want to understand the problem, it helps to see what studies have found. This summary, for example, from the NY Times:

    “Employers, judges and juries often use women’s failure to report harassment as evidence that it was not a problem or that plaintiffs had other motives. But only a quarter to a third of people who have been harassed at work report it to a supervisor or union representative, and 2 percent to 13 percent file a formal complaint, according to a meta-analysis of studies by Lilia Cortina of the University of Michigan and Jennifer Berdahl of the University of British Columbia Sauder School of Business.
    Mostly they fear retaliation, and with good reason, research shows.”

    It’s really not good idea to assume women are lying about these things or that they are at fault for not reporting them back when the incidents happened. There are far too many stories where “everyone knew” but no one, male or female, did anything to help stop the perpetrator because he was too powerful or important.

    My hat is off to Doug. There aren’t that many men who are willing to stand up for women regarding this issue. Even rarer are people who will point out the all too frequent religion-perversion connection. Heaven knows, those of us raised Catholic are aware of how often these people have used the church as a cloak for their activities. The same is obviously true of evangelical and other religions. Whether they deliberately choose to use religion to hide under, or genuinely enter into religious life as preachers, etc., in hopes of curing their problem, the result is the same for their victims. Blaming the victims is no answer to the problem at all.

    Meanwhile, as for Moore, yes, he should be prosecuted, but he’s also up for an election that occurs long before any prosecution can run its course. Alabamians need to know everything that’s alleged about him before they go to the polls. They can then weigh the stories for themselves and make up their own minds about him. It’s entirely obvious at this point that he’s no innocent lamb being smeared by the wicked. When you answer, “Not generally, no,” and only “with her mother’s permission” about dating teenagers when you were thirty, you’ve got a real problem.

    1. Agree, Peggy. But, one of the girls he dated is now saying they only saw each other for a few months, kissed only twice, and that she was happy nothing inappropriate happened.
      Out of curiosity I read some of the Facebook comments by voters who actually live in Alabama, who, I would assume would know more about him as compared to the national politicos in other states who are demanding he step down.
      The comments I read are overwhelming in support of him? !! Mind boggling.
      I can see the girl he allegedly raped being afraid of reporting him. But what about the witnesses who told David French they had first hand knowledge of this??!!
      Someone should have come forward, someone in these 40 years.
      You are right it is too close to the election to convict him in court. But is that their intention? Or will they be satisfied to just convict him in the court of public opinion. It is not too late for that.
      Some charges need to be filed and Soon or his credibility won’t be the only one in question.

      1. That many of Moore’s hard core supporters stays with him is not a surprise. He died 2 deaths on the Al. Supreme Ct for refusing to follow long established 1st Amendment case law and now presents himself for Senate. He won’t back down, its not in his nature.

        1. Then his ” nature” needs to be tested under oath in front of his victims and ther attorneys and David French’s witnesses.

  8. It’s really funny to hear all of the past sexual assaults, sexual harassment and acts of perversion. The earth must have tilted to force a change on the moral compass. I believe that harassment and assault are all illegal. Also, dressing in a provocative way is not an invitation. However, “I was alone in his hotel room with him, when he came out of the bathroom with his johnson in his hand.” just indicates your level of stupidity. Did you think he was going to show you the decor of his hotel room? Why place yourself in that situation? Staying to endure even more perversion is another level of stupid. Did you need a job that badly that you would sell your soul? As for sexual harassment on the job, that is usually done in private so the employee cannot prove the action. Take it from me that sword has a double edge. Since you are alone, your mouth and words are your weapon. Use them. I did (and what I said is not acceptable in polite company.) And yes, he tried to force me out of the company, but I stood my ground. When did women become so wimpy? At the age of 14, I knew what was moral and correct behavior.

    1. Spyderwoman,
      You must be reading my mail. I also knew at 14 what was moral and correct, and if I forgot, I had a set of parents that were quick to remind me.
      I am reading today voters in Alabama are reporting that the WaPo had reporters in town offering $$$ for “dirt on Moore.” One of them accidentally called his sister. When she told them she was a family member, they hung up on her. So the back and forth has begun.
      That is why this girl needs to file. You can run your mouth from here to kingdom come to the press, but under oath, is a different story.
      By the way, I am still waiting with bated breath, (not holding my breath, not that stupid) for John McCain to call for the resignation of his honored colleague in the Senate, Robert Menendez, to step down, amid allegations his association with under age prostitutes gratis his relationship with his big mucky muck millionaire jet set supporter in Florida.
      In the meantime, who’s tending the farm?!

      1. Moore supposedly was taking the 14 YO home from Court. From her account it sounds like the young lady well knew right from wrong and that what Moore was doing to her was wrong.

        Forgive me for asking but are Alabama voters Clinton Child Abuse Pizza Parlor conservatives? What website is reporting these WaPo money offers and which Alabama voters, by name are coming forward?

        1. Facebook banter on Dennis Michael Lynch’s site. You know anything about him, Doug?
          By the way, what is the date of this election?

        2. He took the 14 year old home from Court while her Mother attended a child custody hearing?!
          I hope that Mother is riddled with guilt for leaving her child with a man that she says neither of them knew. ( WaPo).
          Wouldn’t it be interesting to know what the custody hearing was about, and why she didn’t want her daughter to hear. If that were the case, she was old enough to be left at home during the day.

            1. Dayum!!!

              Teresa Jones
              I was a deputy DA in Gadsden with Roy Moore. I have no doubt these stories have validity. Roy was known to eschew dating his own age and preferred teenagers. I challenge all of my colleagues in the Bar and on the bench at that time to come forward to support that Roy Moore should not be elected to represent the place of my birth and my home for many years.
              Teresa D.Jones, Sarasota Florida

              1. More More More!

                http://www.al.com/news/birmingham/index.ssf/2017/11/former_roy_moore_co-worker_say.html

                “A woman who worked at the Etowah County District Attorney’s Office with Roy Moore says it was “common knowledge” he pursued teenage girls.

                A tweet posted by Teresa Jones on Friday slams the U.S. Senate candidate by stating information she says she knows from her time working with Moore as a Deputy District Attorney in Gadsden. “

                And the person has now been interviewed apparently…so it’s apparently more than an internet comment…

                Jones told CNN on Saturday Moore often went to high school events and to other local hangouts. “It was common knowledge that Roy dated high school girls, everyone we knew thought it was weird…We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall…”

                She also told the network that co-workers thought the situation was odd, but no one confronted him about it. “You really wouldn’t say anything to someone like that,” she said.

                CBS has it too:
                https://www.cbsnews.com/news/teresa-jones-says-roy-moore-common-knowledge-dated-teens/

                The youngest accuser, Leigh Corfman, said she was 14 and Moore was 32 when he sexually touched her.

                Mike Ortiz, an ex-boyfriend of Corfman told CNN she relayed the story to him when they dated for about two years around 2009. Corfman’s description to the Post fits what she told him to a tee, he said.

                “But I believed her when she told me and I still believe her,” he said on CNN. “She wouldn’t lie about something like that.”

                So that suit against the Washington Post Moore’s wife was threatening the other day…There is NOT ENOUGH POPCORN!!!

            2. rfp,
              Does this article appearing in the local Gadsden paper make you wonder about the community? Do they read their own local paper? There are so many still in defense of this man, and ready to vote for him.
              I read all of these accounts today ( it was not pleasant reading) and thought this is a Sandra Bullock movie in the making–deep south–young teen–no father figure in her life– a mother who abdicates her responsibility to keep her child safe by not only allowing her to be alone in the company of a man neither of them know– but actually thinking it was so “nice” of him to want to “take care of my little girl.” That statement by the Mother gave me the total creeps. Do we have a weak gene pool here?
              It is a given that no child molester has the right to abuse our children, but parents have the responsibility to prevent them from having the opportunity.
              And according to this article, he did not drive her home from the Courthouse. She gave him her number, and he picked her up a few days later around the corner from her home.
              So, this young teen was up for an adventure. The first encounter didn’t scare her enough. She went back for more.
              The saddest statement of all by the girl is that she was so flattered that a grown man was paying attention to her. That broke my heart. A girl with a real father figure in her life would have had that need filled from birth. Tragic.
              She finally tells her Mother in the 90’s who is then “shocked!” Give me a break.
              I know we have a celebrity figure involved here, but unfortunately, you can multiply this situation by the thousands in our society today.
              And that is the real tragedy.

              1. Amen Sister Lana! The tide has turned, 38 comments and counting on the Al.com story RFP just linked, just a few supporting Moore.

                The womens are standing up to a sociopathic thug. It is beautiful to watch. 👏👏👏👏

              2. The operative word is grooming imo.

                The literature lays it all out.

                The victims usually report a pattern, not infrequently the parents are included in the grooming…

                None of these allegations against Moore (made by multiple victims) appear to be outside the typical patterns of child or adolescent sexual abuse by those in positions of power.

                Just my inexpert opinion – but his words appear to make the case:

                Moore began the interview by saying the allegations were “completely false and misleading.” But he seemed to waver throughout the interview.

                Hannity went through the Post story and detailed the allegations of the four accusers. Moore claimed to know two of four, but denied any instance of misconduct with either. In response to the allegations involving Debbie Wesson Gibson, Moore said, “I don’t remember going out on dates. I knew her as a friend. If we did go out on dates, then we did. But I don’t remember that.”

                Also this- note that after Moore thinks about his answers during the break the denial becomes more vehement…he has been an attorney and judge…so he understands questions and answers…why should someone need to think about these questions and answers and make a stronger denial later after expressing such a high degree of ambiguity… unless the moral compass is pointing to abuser or worse?

                Asked if he remembers dating teenage women when he was older than 30, Moore said, “Not generally, no.”

                “I don’t remember dating any girl without the permission of her mother,” he said. He later pointed to The Post’s story and said, “These two young girls actually said their mothers encouraged them to be friends with me.”

                After a commercial break, Moore became more forceful in his denials of dating teenagers. He said doing so “would be out of my customary behavior” and that he “never” would have dated a teen without her mother’s permission.

  9. Commenters here are surely among the less wimpy, especially those who use their own name. If you’ve lived at all in the world you know there are many people, certainly women, who are a good deal less confident and capable than those of us here are of standing up for themselves, and who are more likely to be (or to have been when young) impressed enough by some men to get themselves into a stupid situation. That doesn’t mean they deserve what they get or should shut up now when finally they have some safety in the numbers of people speaking up. Reams have been written about the shame and disgrace they feel, the self-questioning about their own perceptions of what happened. The whole issue would be a good deal simpler if all women (men too) were clear thinking, unaffected by material considerations, articulate, and outspoken enough to raise hell when an incident occurs. That’s not the case. That’s not even an ideal which most women were taught or encouraged to reach when I was young, and I doubt that many of them are being encouraged to reach it today.

    1. Being able to leave politics out of it would be a nice improvement as well. Feminists didn’t do women any favors when they gave Bill Clinton a pass when he was accused of rape and assault because he was from the correct side of the political aisle. If it’s wrong, it’s wrong, no matter who does it.

  10. Well, to be fair, pussy grabbing liberals don’t seem to have any problem holding themselves out as morally superior and above we unwashed rabble as much as any right wing preacher. I just can’t help but remember how many times we have been lectured on morals by the same Hollywood liberals who participated and enabled the mass sexual harassment and perversion these losers made a part of their industry and standards.

  11. Hollywood actors, right wing preachers, and politicians share some characteristics. All are “on stage” much of the time, hoping to make it big by gaining loads of followers/supporters. The more they succeed, the more powerful they become, the less likely anyone will blow the whistle on them, so by the time they reach a more powerful status they are more protected from consequences of bad actions and probably less likely to feel bound by the conventional behavior of us ordinary mortals. Not surprising that so many allegations are coming from these three professions.

  12. Roy Moore needs to step down today so the WaPo and those 42 Congressmen who have tried and convicted him can get busy on Robert Menendez.
    They obviously can’t multi task like we do here at Slabbed.
    Doug could teach them a thing or two😎😎

  13. Looks like Menendez will not be convicted of the allegations against him– jury is having a hard time reaching a verdict. Will continue to deliberate tomorrow.

  15. Okay, now we have a real game changer in the Roy Moore case. Gloria Allred’s client is willing to give her testimony under oath, under penalty of perjury. That is bad news for Roy, bad.
    The others didn’t make that offer, but this is what needs to happen. If the Senate Judiciary Committee does not own up to Allred’s request for a hearing before the election, she should arrange for her client to at least give her testimony under a lie detector test.
    And so what if a Democrat wins? Is there is any real difference between the two anymore?!
    This woman could make the other accusers look bad too if they don’t follow suit.

  16. The truth is, Roy aMoore probably did exactly what he is accused of. And, if he gets taken down, that is a real improvement over the days a Senator could drown a woman, and go plan his media and police response while she was still fighting for life in an air pocket, and then continue serving in the Senate like nothing had happened. Finish Moore off and move on to the others in Washington who are even worse.

  17. Oops! Looks like Allred’s client that I thought was credible is looking like a fraud!!
    The yearbook post will sink them😎😡

      1. The thing I do find strange, Doug, is the initials after Moore’s name.
        Those are the initials of his Clerk who would sign documents for him and put his initials on them.
        His name is Delbert (D.)
        Adams (A.).
        Mrs. Nelson had that signature on her divorce papers since it went through Moore’s court.
        Not playing the Devil’s advocate, but I do find that suspicious.
        In my opinion, Allred should have vetted her client better, and she should have been the one to have a forensic handwriting expert verify it. After all, she had never met this woman before. I know I would have.

        1. You fail to acknowledge that Moore did not directly deny being the yearbook writer. Saying it could be forged while not directly denying being the writer is bullshit. I believe Allred’s client as surely as I do the rest.

          1. I didn’t say I did not believe her. But, in my opinion, she should have left the yearbook part out of her story.
            She had access to his handwriting to copy, Allred neglected to verify it. I just find that part very suspicious, sloppy legal work.
            I go back to my original statement from last week– they ALL, Moore and accusers need to be sworn and make their statements.
            Guess that will take civil suits because the statute has expired.

            1. I do not see where Allred had any responsibility to verify what her own “lying eyes” can plainly see (along with everyone elses).

              That Allred is a fly circling a steaming pile of [email protected] is no surprise here.

              1. Allred could put this guy away, and should stop wasting time doing it. She is a seasoned attorney. She should have a forensic handwriting expert verify that yearbook post, draw up an affidavit for Mrs. Nelson to sign with the whole story in it, send both to the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, of whom she is demanding a hearing, and tell Roy Moore and his staff and legal team they’ll see him in D.C.
                She does have an obligation to not only the truth but to her client and her profession.

  18. Hey, there are also brand new reports of a photo of Roy Moore putting his hands on a sleeping female reporter’s breasts and grinning at the photographer on an airplane trip.

    Oh, wait. That was Senator Al Franken. Never mind. Nothing to see here. That’s cool. She probably liked it. Or would have, you know, if she had been awake.
