McCain: Allegations against Moore 'deeply disturbing and disqualifying'

© Camille Fine

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is calling on Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to exit the race amid allegations of an inappropriate sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl in 1979.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying," McCain said in a statement. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of.”

Alabama state auditor defends Roy Moore against sexual allegations, invokes Mary and Joseph
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/al...rticle/2640217

“Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist,” Ziegler said choosing his words carefully before invoking Christ. “Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”

There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here,” Ziegler concluded. “Maybe just a little bit unusual.
These fucking people, man.

It would be interested to see whether Prosecutor Moore ever prosecuted someone for statutory rape, or whether Judge Moore ever sentenced anyone for that crime.

Personally I would find it far more interesting if he looked the other way, or influenced others to do the same.

Consider the source (Think Progress), but try this:

This is what Roy Moore has said about child abuse and sexual assault

Re: The Official Trump Presidency Thread: Paul Manafort Indicted

(why are we talking about Moore in the Trump thread? Trump didn't even endorse him!)


This is mostly for comedic effect, but it's interesting what Cuban says about Trump, on how this "hero of the working people", feels he's too good to have dinner at the home of the average American...

I’m calling it now: Moore wins in a landslide. Why? Because we’re in The upside down now.

I don't know about that. I think that it will cost Roy Moore votes, not because she was underage, but because she wasn't related to him.

Sometimes I feel a bit like this, these days. Except instead of the Borg everywhere, it's racists everywhere. I can't imagine how it must feel to be a minority right now.

Yes. We should blindly follow Christian Conservatives. Because they couldn't possibly be awful people. Paging Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart and the other scumbags who prey on their supporters.

In fairness, they supported Trump when he admitted going into dressing rooms just so he could see young girls naked, so it's really not that much of a stretch for them.

We know how Roy Moore's indiscretion will play out. He'll make a statement with his wife at his side and a Bible in his hand. He'll tell us that it was a long time ago, he's very sorry, he's prayed to Jesus for guidance, and he asks us for our forgiveness.

Nope. Moore is taking a page out Trump's playbook. Lie, lie, lie. Deny, deny, deny.
