Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 11, 2017

Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore dropped by Sean Hannity's radio program Friday afternoon to respond to allegations that he'd pursued sexual encounters with four teenagers when he was in his 30s -- including one woman who said she was 14 when Moore approached her. And while he called the story "completely false and misleading," he said he "didn't dispute" that he used to date girls as young as 16. Hannity pressed Moore on whether he had dated girls in their teens when he was in 30s. "Not generally, no," the former judge said in response.

I have to wonder if Judge Moore would allow such an evasive response from a defendant in his courtroom?

@#5 ... Cause the Bible. ...

No group has shifted their position more dramatically than white evangelical Protestants. [In 2016] More than seven in ten (72%) white evangelical Protestants say an elected official can behave ethically even if they have committed transgressions in their personal life -- a 42-point jump from 2011, when only 30 % of white evangelical Protestants said the same.

When did so much of American Christianity get mean and stupid?

It wasn't the 30's Churches fought to keep people from starving.

It wasn't the 40's they were nearly all of aid during WWII.

And in the 50's everyone admired science then even if they didn't get it.

Was it the 60's?

Did Russia cause this during the cold war?

Don't put all the blame on the older male. It's a well established fact that young harlots and temptresses have a thing for sagging flesh and wrinkled ------- that are frequently attached to fat wallets and power. I used her she used me, neither one cared as the song goes.

Was she in high school?

I don't think the big problem is the dating of legal age girls who are much younger than him (though molesting an underage 14 year old IS a problem). The problem is that he then ran on a platform of morality (ten commandments, gay bashing, etc), when dating girls who are barely of age is morally ambiguous at best.

If you did date someone just out of high school while you were in your 40s, I would suggest not running for office on a platform of moral superiority and judgementalism. You might want to err more on the side of "people in glass houses should not throw stones" and being understanding of people's individual circumstances.

Half your age plus 7 is a good dividing line between normal and skeevy, I think.

But at least you were dating an adult.

I hate to interrupt a good Bill Clinton deflection, but the people who put the story together interviewed around 30 people.

Please proceed.

Is there a chance you can work Hillary in there as well? I bet it wasn't just Bill who made him do it. I'm sure she caused Roy Moore to molest children somehow.

"Can anyone name a Republican who has run for office lately that wasn't accused of something involving sexual harassment or assult in the last couple of years?"

Of course we can. I don't remember any such accusations against Mitt Romney or John McCain. Don't remember any against George W. Bush or Marco Rubio. I could go on endlessly, don't paint all Republicans with the filth of Moore. That's not being fair to other Republicans. You don't want to believe (or admit you actually do believe) that Moore is a pervert but enough people have come forward, on the record, so that we can conclude he is a perve. That's Senator Pervert in the future I guess you're hoping.

I could ask 30 people how the weather was in 1979 and get 30 different answers.

So you think something as mundane as the weather is as memorable as being molested? My god the false equivalency is strong in you.

I tell you what, I can remember what the weather was like in 1977 in late January in Buffalo NY. Why? Because the Blizzard of 77 is an unusual event. Like getting molested by a 32 year old man. People remember significant events in their lives. Something as mundane as the weather on a daily basis is not memorable. To say it is as means to defend pedophilia is dishonest at best.

3 of the 4 accusers were at the age of consent and the one who wasn't is the least credible of the 4.

Nevertheless, a 32-year old man going on a date with a high-school teenager pegs my creepy meter to a point where I think he's unfit.

He admitted dating teenagers, 3 of the 4 were at the age of consent and 3 of the 4 described behavior wholly consistent with a date.

The 4th was 14 at the time and described behavior that would have been illegal and abusive for someone under the age of consent and would have been downright creepy on a date with a woman of any age. This woman is the least credible. The other 3 have their stories pretty much confirmed by Moore's remarks when asked about this.

Like I said, the whole thing pegs my creepy meter, or worse, depending on the voracity of the woman who was 14 at the time.

That's not a distinction I'd make. We all know that a 32-year-old man dating 16-year-olds is skeevy as hell. Moore admits doing that and it makes the 14-year-old's accusation more credible.

"We all know that a 32-year-old man dating 16-year-olds is skeevy as hell."

But, he was very respectable! He only "dated" the young teenage girls with their mom's permission.

And sometimes, because he was so concerned about their tender young feelings he would discretely pick them up around the corner so as not to embarrass them for dating someone as old as her father.

Such a caring considerate man!

It was all very Biblical.

It just seems strange that with the teens who were of legal age, his advances never went beyond kissing or hugging and were consensual. With the one girl who revealed herself to him to be underage, he pushes further knowing full well the legal implications of what he was doing (he was a lawyer at the time)? I'm not saying it didn't happen. It's just not consistent with how he behaved with the other 3 teens who were at the age of consent.

Maybe he treated children differently based on whether their mothers knew he was pursuing them. Predators often pick the most vulnerable kids. Sandusky was an expert at it.

From the linked article:

Moore fired off, describing himself as a father and grandfather who has a "special concern for the protection of young ladies."
Apparently, his "special concern" was to save those "young ladies" for himself.
Moore also added that he doesn't "remember ever dating any girl without the permission of her mother."
Here's a good rule of thumb:

If you're already out of high school and you think you need the permission of a girl's mother to date her, don't date that girl.
