It seems that Roy Moore, in some of the polls, has once again pulled ahead of Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate race. It also seems that the typical non-Alabama media outlets, on both sides, are not giving it a rest either. I, personally, think that the way that the liberal national press has prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced Roy Moore in the National Press has helped bring his numbers back in Alabama.
I'm sure if you were to hear from al Franken he would be on the bandwagon for Moore to be drummed out of the Senate and removed from the campaign except now he would most likely be a lot quieter now that he's fighting to stay in the Senate after the allegations against him. He's a pig of a person and one of the greatest hypocrites the Democrats have.
Back to Roy Moore, regarding the most damaging allegation against him which is the 14 year old's remarks I do believe they were politically timed to attempt to sink Roy Moore's campaign but I also believe there is a good chance that there is truth in both sides of the story. This was apparently a very wild and troubled (at the time) teen that admittingly sought to fit in and sought to be with older boys/men at the time. I fully believe that Roy Moore would not have pursued this girl had he known she was 14 at the time. I also fully believe that the girl misled Roy Moore into believing that she was legal and consenting at the time. The thing about the story that I find most unbelievable is that they were together two separate times, and that they were both undressed or partially there yet they did not have sexual contact. I would think if Moore was a pervert or the person that the media is playing him out to be then he would have taken full advantage of the situation and forced himself on the girl and it would not have just been being touched and then leaving.
I believe in that story, of the girls, Roy Moore was interested in her but Roy Moore was led to believe she was old enough to make those decisions legally and of the age of consent. I do believe Roy Moore was a man that was attracted to younger (legal) women. One only has to look at many people of that generation and see that this was no uncommon thing and even Representative Conyers , one of the Democrats in Congress who is under suspicion, married a woman very much younger than he is/was. It is not even uncommon among older, wealthy, women to go after much younger men yet with Moore this is to be disqualifying, Why?
The question comes down to did he know she was under age as in Moore being a pedophile and to that question I fully trust and believe he was and is not. I believe his judgement, at that time in his life, may not have been the best about choosing the youngest of girls to go after but I fully believe he was careful and went after only those that were legally capable of making dating decisions. I do not believe that Moore would have, in the position he was in, sought after girls below the age of consent and thus illegal and many men of his generation and even today, essentially do the same thing and are successful at it because of the extreme wealth they have and benefits that they can bestow upon girls who make the decision to date them. I also have no doubt that there are girls out there who lie about their age and who look older and are able to convince people of their lie. Tracy Lords is one of the most famous that was revealed to have lied in order to work in the adult **** industry and was able to fool everyone else.
Again IF Moore though knew this girl was 14 ,at the time, and still pursued her or deliberately had any contact with her, then that would be a reason to eliminate him from the race and to keep him from holding that office. I fear though if truth was known that far worse are occupying seats in Congress than the crime that Roy Moore is accused of. It is still an accusation and while I do believe there is a measure of truth in it I do believe it's politically motivated, in it's timing, I do believe some of the accusations are not exactly what's alleged, and I do not believe Roy Moore would have done anything he knew to be illegal but I do believe he was a fan and had his eye on young girls seeking to date them, but date them legally and for that I do not believe that is or should be disqualifying. Pedophilia is disqualifying and illegal and those guilty of such should be removed from our society and put in prison and prosecuted protecting the young. IF Moore is/was guilty of that then it shouldn't be the news media that the complaint is made to but rather the police but somehow I don't think that is what happened here. I believe the girl was troubled, I believe she lied about her age and quite likely appeared older so as to be able to sell it. I also believe that she went along willingly with (then) younger Roy Moore seeking to have an older boyfriend to brag about. I do also feel that this is being blown out of proportion for political motivation in hopes to elect Doug Jones even though I don't know if Doug Jones has anything directly to do with it happening the way it is.
And that is why come December 12th, I will have no problem voting for Roy Moore and continue to believe he is innocent of what he's being charged of doing. If though information or evidence comes forth between now and then that proves otherwise then I reserve the right to change my mind.
