This can't be real, can it?

Alabama GOP lawmaker: Roy Moore accusers should be prosecuted for not coming forward sooner

Republican Alabama State Representative Ed Henry said on Friday that he wanted someone to bring charges against the women who accused GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore of making sexual advances on them when they were teenagers.

In an interview with The Cullman Times, Henry raged that the women interviewed in the Washington Post’s bombshell report about Moore’s sexual behavior waited so long to publicly accuse him of having improper relations with them when they were teens.

“If they believe this man is predatory, they are guilty of allowing him to exist for 40 years,” Henry fumed. “I think someone should prosecute and go after them. You can’t be a victim 40 years later, in my opinion.”
...
Henry also said the women were “foolish” for coming forward with their accusations and hinted they’d regret “going down this road.”

Remember when the republican party was collectively shitting their pants over the idea that a transwoman was going to molest their daughter in a bathroom?

And now that Roy Moore has been outed as a child molestor, they're all of a sudden cool with the idea of creepy men fondling fourteen year-olds?

Moore can use this for a campaign theme song.

Wonder if Moore will step aside. Hard to imagine Alabama picking a Dem to be senator.

He’s been pretty adamant that he won’t back down. I’m sure he’ll win anyway.

It's around 50/50 right now. Pedophile vs Democrat. Ball is in your court, Alabama.

What's sad is that if instead he had announced that he had been in a decades long monogamous relationship with another man and they were now getting married that support would drop instantly.

Problem is, there's not been a lot of polling for this race. OTOH, a JMC Analytics poll released the same day as the Emerson College poll has Jones up by 4.

Another woman comes forward claiming that Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a minor (15 years old).

Interesting that Moore is unfit but Trump is "locker room talk".

Also, I don't buy for a second they'll expel him.

I'm not defending Trump, but he didn't grab underage pussy (that we know of), whereas Moore is basically a pedo.

If we're to believe accusers - yes, he has.

Fuckin' Onion with the hard truth-bombs!

Roy Moore On Pedophilia Accusers: ‘These Women Are Only Discrediting Me Now Because Shifting Sociocultural Norms Have Created An Environment In Which Assault Allegations Are Taken Seriously’

"These women have had 30 years to come forward, and the one and only reason they’re speaking out now is because they suddenly have less fear that their lives will be utterly destroyed."
