Moore- Yesterday Beverly Young Nelson told us about how real Alabama Senate candidate and alleged child molester Roy Moore assaulted her when she was 15, which technically makes him an alleged ephebophile, not pedophile. Vocabulary, people!
Nelson’s story rings true because she showed us the yearbook with the message on camera.
How many high school yearbooks have you signed since you graduated high school?

Even that old misogynist, He-man Woman-hater amply be-Chinned Mitch says that he believes the women!
Moore-Moore: The New Yorker reports that the shopping mall in Gadsden, Alabama, banned Moore in the mid-1980s because he cruised the mall looking for teenage girls. The New Yorker story sourced a dozen people who confirmed this, including several police officers who patrolled the area. And remember: a case going to court with a dozen witnesses is a case that defense attorneys would be begging to plea bargain. That is evidence, not allegation.
Moore-Moore-Moore: Republicans don’t want Democrat Doug Jones to win, but they also don’t want Moore in their clubhouse offering to sign the Pages’ yearbooks, either. So to speak.
These Republican Senators have called on alleged child molester Roy Moore to drop out of the race:
- Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell
- Bill Cassidy (LA)
- Susan Collins (ME)
- Bob Corker (TN)
- Steve Daines (MT)
- Lindsey Graham (SC)
- Chuck Grassley (IA)
- Orrin Hatch (UT)
- Ron Johnson (WI)
- Mike Lee (UT)
- John McCain (AZ)
- Rob Portman (OH)
- Richard Shelby (AL)
- Thom Tills (NC)
- Pat Toomey (PA)
And these Republicans are not alone, as Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) tells us…
“A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows voters nationally find the allegations against Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore credible — and a majority thinks Moore should drop out of the race. The poll — which was conducted prior to the most recent allegations against Moore leveled by Beverly Young Nelson, who said Monday that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old — found 59 percent of voters say they considered the original allegations against Moore outlined in a Washington Post article last week very or somewhat credible. Just 17 percent say the allegations are not too credible or not credible at all. The remaining 23 percent don’t know or have no opinion.
“There are partisan differences in national views of the Moore allegations, but even among Republican voters, more find the allegations credible than not. Nearly half of GOP voters, 49 percent, say the accusations against Moore are at least somewhat credible; just three-in-10 say they are not too credible or not credible at all.”
How Do You Like It! NRSC Chairman Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) said that if Moore is elected, then the Senate should expel him. No senator has been expelled since 1862 and, gee, what was going on THEN?
