Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 13, 2017

A woman on Monday accused Roy Moore of attempting to rape her when she was 16 during a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred. Beverly Young Nelson said Moore she was approached by Moore in 1975 in a Gadsen, Alabama restaurant where she worked. One night, Nelson said Moore offered her a ride home in his car. Instead of getting on the highway, Moore parked in the back of the Olde Hickory House restaurant. Nelson said she was Moore what he was doing. "Instead of answering my question, Mr. Moore reached over and began groping me, putting his hands on my breasts," Nelson said.

"I thought that he was going to rape me. I was twisting and struggling and begging him to stop. I had tears running down my face.

"At some point he gave up. He then looked at me and said, "You are a child. I am the District Attorney of Etowah County," she continued. "If you tell anyone about this, no one will believe you." He finally allowed me to open the car door and I either fell out or he pushed me out.

McConnell, Corey Gardner and Claire McCaskill (D) have all said today that Moore should drop out. Gardner even said the Senate should not seat him if elected.

It looks like Sen McConnell gave Republicans cover to say they think Mr Moore should drop out.

Sen McConnell probably looked at the political ramifications, and decided it was better to side with the women than Mr Bannon in this instance.

Moore is scum and should step aside.

That being said, the fact that this woman is represented by Gloria Allred gives the impression that there are political motivations here, since Gloria is well know (as is her daughter, Lisa Bloom) for political hatch jobs, at least here in CA.

Really, running for Senate gives the impression there are political motives in play?

Don't worry. Alabama will still vote for him. It's just easy to say, "I don't know Moore personally but I don't believe the 35 or so witnesses."

They came out? Pastors don't have a great track record with children either.

So they probably "came out" of the bathroom stalls where they were waiting to molest innocent children.

Pastors should only be allowed in bathrooms of their original birth religions.

btw, Moore was Democrat when this happened.
Moore returned to Gadsden again in 1985. He ran in 1986 for Etowah County's district attorney position against fellow Democrat Jimmy Hedgspeth. He lost that election as well, and Moore returned to private practice in the city. During this period, he married his wife Kayla, switched his affiliation to the GOP, and added to his office a wooden Ten Commandments plaque.

If you are going to play the GOP = bad Dems=good card....what about a convicted felon? A number (possibly all of them) of Senate democrats have been asked if Menendez is found guilty of feloniously accepting bribes in a quid pro quo situation, will they vote to remove them. Not a single "yes". Not a single "no" either. At least with Moore we have a few Republican Senators calling for him to drop out. If Menendez is found guilty and Moore wins the election, McConnel will probably set it up where both are voted on at the same time.

Also, you are accusing the GOP of something they haven't done one way or another yet - removing Moore from the Senate. You're putting the cart before the horse.

We've done this many times. I don't say dems = good, repub = bad.

I say dems = bad, repubs = horrible, and that's the truth.

Your "whataboutism" is so played out by now.

It's an old soviet propaganda technique that the right wing has fully embraced and is infecting the minds of otherwise reasonable people. You're falling for it like a chump.

And the king of stupidity and lies loves to use it.
www.npr.org
When O'Reilly countered that "Putin is a killer," Trump responded, "There are a lot of killers. You got a lot of killers. What, you think our country is so innocent?"

This particular brand of changing the subject is called "whataboutism" -- a simple rhetorical tactic heavily used by the Soviet Union and, later, Russia. And its use in Russia helps illustrate how it could be such a useful tool now, in America. As Russian political experts told NPR, it's an attractive tactic for populists in particular, allowing them to be vague but appear straight-talking at the same time.
