Oddly humorous fact: During the time period in which Republican Roy Moore is accused of doing most of his behavior (well, *all* five incidents I see), he was actually Democrat Roy Moore. Apparently he switched parties in 1992. >_> Apparently he was up to no good during the 80s as a Dem but, after switching to a Republican, he didn't seem to get into trouble. So either he found morality or... well, since predators tend to stay predators, it's a little weird that there *isn't* a chain of abuse to this current day.

So, if they're starting to believe Moore's accusers, why not Trump's?

A question that really needs to be asked. Especially given that Trump has bragged about inappropriate conduct with underaged women as a point of pride.


The charge of walking into a dressing room doesn't seem anything close to what Roy Moore did and conflating the two to push an agenda is ridiculous. Granted, I know that you both subscribe to a camp which tries to spin *any* event into being about Trump. You're basically doing what Jeff Bezos pays WaPo staffers to do for free.

They protect their own. He found an alignment to keep him safe. Predators gonna help predators stay in the shadows.

Uh excuse me how about the far greater number of allegations from adults about sexual assaults and misconduct? Just because his assault victims were older does not make his behaviour acceptable or above scrutiny. He still has a history of wholly inappropriate behavior to teenagers and there's likely to be more to it. IIRC one of the allegations against Trump included him drugging and raping a 13 year old at a party.

I was right, it was a 13 year old. Perhaps she will feel more comfortable coming forward in the current climate

But let's talk about the large number of people with allergations about Trump, whether or not they were children (because hey adults can be victims too)

The camp being sexually assaulted women? You sound paranoid and a little sexist right now.

New Roy Moore accuser: 'He didn't pinch it; he grabbed it'
http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2017/11/new_roy_moore_accuser_he_didnt.html

In interviews with AL.com, Tina Johnson recalls that in the fall of 1991 she sat in the law office of then-attorney Roy Moore on Third Street in Gadsden. Her mother, Mary Katherine Cofield, sat in the chair next to her. Moore sat behind his desk, across from them. Johnson remembers she was wearing a black and white dress.

Almost from the moment she walked in to Moore's office, Johnson said, Moore began flirting with her.

"He kept commenting on my looks, telling me how pretty I was, how nice I looked," recalled Johnson. "He was saying that my eyes were beautiful."

It made her uncomfortable. "I was thinking, can we hurry up and get out of here?"


At one point during the meeting, she said, Moore came around the desk and sat on the front of it, just inches from her. He was so close, she said, she could smell his breath.

According to Johnson, he asked questions about her young daughters, including what color eyes they had and if they were as pretty as she was. She said that made her feel uncomfortable, too.

Once the papers were signed, she and her mother got up to leave. After her mother walked through the door first, she said, Moore came up behind her.

It was at that point, she recalled, he grabbed her buttocks.

"He didn't pinch it; he grabbed it," said Johnson. She was so surprised she didn't say anything. She didn't tell her mother.

She said she told her sister years later how Moore had made her feel uncomfortable during that meeting. Her sister told AL.com she remembers the conversation.


Thorp said local women have not spoken publicly against Moore before now because he had power in town and in the state, and they didn't think they would be believed.

"Everybody knew it wouldn't matter," she said, "that he would get elected anyway because his supporters are never going to believe anything bad about him."

Johnson said the answer was even more simple.

"It's because somebody asked," she said. "If anybody had asked, we would have told it. No one asked."

Good link RC, thanks!

I'm feeling happy that people are at least getting more comfortable about coming forward against others that have harmed them. It doesn't stop this awful behavior, but it does cast light on those doing real harm, and consequences are being felt.
