Is Roy Moore Finished? Alabama Senate Favorite Slams WPost Sex Accusations: "Completely False and Desperate"
Fox News reports:
Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday adamantly denied a Washington Post report on a woman who claims the former judge and staunch social conservative initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 -- allegations that have rocked the race in the final stretch. . . .
The Post interviewed three other women who were teenagers at the time who claimed Moore pursued them when he was in his 30s, though he did not force them into any type of sexual relationship.
"Rocked the race"? I don't think so. Trying to rock the race? OK. But that's a far different matter altogether.
A couple of thoughts. First, this is interesting timing, don't you think? With election day looming December 12 and Roy Moore still polling double-digits ahead of his opponent, these allegations are surely a coincidence.
Or it could be that the post-American D.C. establishment is clawing and throwing double-digit sinks and maybe a little bit desperate to hold onto money and power and authority and control? Over us.
Roy Moore appears to be the kind of guy to mess up that machine.
Second, let's see the evidence. To borrow from Christopher Hitchens, if we are expected to condemn Roy Moore apart from evidence, we can just as easily -- and more rationally (innocent until proven guilty) -- not condemn Roy Moore in the absence of evidence.
Without evidence, a "bombshell" becomes a dud. Sizzle becomes drizzle. Your parade is hereby rained upon.
Meanwhile, the Moore campaign rejects these allegations. "National liberal organizations know their chosen candidate Doug Jones is in a death spiral, and this is their last ditch Hail Mary," says Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead, according to Fox News.
"Judge Roy Moore is winning with a double-digit lead," Armistead continues, "so it is no surprise, with just over four weeks remaining, in a race for the U.S. Senate with national implications, that the Democratic Party and the country's most liberal newspaper would come up with a fabrication of this kind."
For his part, Moore rejects the accusations as a "completely false and a desperate political attack," Fox News reports. So don't start break-dancing on Roy Moore's political grave too soon, Mitch McConnell.
Listen up, Out-of-Touch, Alienated D.C. Establishment: Americans are growing evermore wise to pretend "reporters" and media activists and their not-so-hidden role as the propaganda corps of an oppressive, post-American, contra-constitutional globalist ruling class.
Now, a prediction: Based on what we know, Roy Moore will not step down, and he will be elected U.S. senator from Alabama in some 4 weeks.
Liberals will gnash teeth, but America will rejoice.
One more thing: If elected, Roy Moore will outlast Mitch McConnell in the U.S. Senate. Alabama that.
