53 pastors signed a letter in support of Roy Moore. Ted Cruz has pulled his endorsement.

Can someone please introduce 14-year-old Roy Moore to 26-year-old Kevin Spacey?

I can't wrap my head around that one.

If he did what he's accused of as a Democrat - he still did it and now he's the Republicans' problem. The Dems aren't putting him up for office.

And I think most sane people would agree it's about the person, not their political party. Because being a Democrat or Republican has nothing to do with being a pedophile. This is about whether the people of Alabama think an accused pedophile should represent them.

Saying "oh he was only a pedophile when he was a Democrat" does not seem like a good answer to this problem.

About goddamn time!


Not that Moore will quit, but at least it's something.

For the record, "all" it took for the RNC to withdraw support was 4 women coming forward with allegations, 30 people corroborating their stories, the accused to interview about how he couldn't dispute the charges that he dated 16 year olds at minimum and finally for a 5th woman to come out with physical evidence of his involvement.

I wonder if Limbaugh was a Democrat when he was abusing opiates?

Grant said he has no desire to play a role in Alabama politics.

"Not my state. Not my issues," he told the news channel.
So, if it isn't his state, then it isn't his issue. Yet, if it isn't his bedroom or womb, then he still has a stake in the matter?

Took a few days, but it's finally catching up to him in the polls.

NRSC poll: Moore trails Jones by 12

Probably why RNC abandoned him.

But he's still not dropping out, so they're stuck, and we're already getting a new D senator even before 2018.

So there is a breaking point for Republican voters when it comes to pedophiles? Glory be I never thought I'd see the day.

I honestly think some on the right are using this to see how far they can push the fake news thing. If they could get people to overwhelmingly pull the trigger for a pederast then were probably fucked as a country.

I remember Mel Reynolds got reelected to congress a couple months after getting charged with having sex with a 16 old staffer and soliciting child porn from her.

re: 2018 Congressional, Governor, etc election thread

the lawyer's interview was essentially hey the yearbook is fake. And they want the yearbook
to verify the signature isn't faked, as they described it I'm inclined to believe it is faked.

Luckily we have a man for the job!


Also I totally rolled my eyes when Gloria Allred got involved. Her reputation is less than stellar.

The fact that the press conference is happening at 5 pm on a Friday makes it seem like its new they want buried.
