    So we are now learning that mall security had a standing order to call the police if they saw Moore approaching young girls at the mall.

    Evidently his behavior was widely known by many.

    Mia Love, is Rob Moore's behavior sickening too?

    @Marxist:
    "Apparently to at least some conservatives, personal character matters not at all."
    This is why it is very difficult to have a rational discussion with those of an extremist perspective. To come to that conclusion of my point is simply ignoring the whole discussion.
    Of course these women have a right to be heard. If they choose to do it publicly, they have a right to be scrutinized. I hope they get help. They have not been "under the thumb" of Roy Moore regardless of their feelings. A great, competent counselor would help them realize that. Getting it all out publicly may not help.
    Of course character matters. Of course we are all accountable for what we do. Of course moral judgment needs to be a factor in electing representatives. The ultimate judge of me, you, Judge Moore, and all of us has the last word.
    We have a "Statute of Limitations" for many good reasons. The best reason is that irrational, irrelevant (due to the human nature that we have the ability to change and become better) charges cannot be held over people indefinitely to punish enemies.
    How you get that my opinion is "Personal Character matters not at all" from this discussion is grossly inaccurate.

    @CH Cougar
    So its alright to sexually assault someone as long as it was 40 years ago? As far as passing judgment is that not what he did for many years before being twice removed for misconduct? Are you saying we should not have a judicial system that holds people accountable when they commit such acts? On what basis should we make our decisions about who we want to represent us, should moral character not be a factor? I thought his claims of wanting to restore religious moral character was the very platform he is claiming to run on?

    These women have felt shame their entire lives, and have felt under the thumb of Moore their entire lives. Finally the climate allows them to confront him. He deserves it.

    "No one asked for the resignation of a former commander & chief."

    That is absolutely FALSE.

    Don't forget, he was impeached even though the Senate vote to remove him from office fell short by just one or two votes. That was as disgusting and wrong as it was to allow the current president to be inaugurated and as wrong as it will be if Roy Moore is permitted to join the Senate.

    A lot of Republicans view abortion as the ultimate evil, and consequently view the very worst the Republican party has to offer as preferable to any Democrat.

    If Republicans decide that someone who forces himself on underage girls is a tolerable candidate, they'll have reset the bar even lower than Trump left it.

    If these allegations are true, the last time they should have been discussed was 1984. Stretching it to 1999 would be almost laughable. Discussing them now is so outrageous we have collective insanity. Mike Lee, Mitt Romney, Jeff Flake....you are actually paying attention to tabloid journalism of 40 years ago? You should be ashamed to call yourself Christians.
    If these women are actually suffering from these events 40 years later--they need counseling and tools to move forward. If they are lying, exaggerating, politicizing--they should be absolutely ashamed to be part of the new "National Enquirer" frenzy (put forward by the alleged "mainstream" Washington Post).
    Having Gloria Allred come forward with this woman will almost certainly give the race to Moore. To solidify it, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson could weigh in as well (if they could somehow bring race into the equation). Liberalism and their dirty tricks are repulsive to the people of Alabama and good people everywhere.

    So do you believe Roy Moore or the women accusers?

    For all the talk of "liberals" turning a blind eye to Dems, Anthony Weiner's fall and prison sentence says it all that liberals don't tolerate sexual abuse of teens. And liberal Hollywood is indeed addressing the problem of sexual harassment and misconduct with many disgraced actors, directors, and producers now being shunned by the entertainment establishment.

    Moore's situation? So far, some GOP are shunning him, but others are sticking up for him and accusing the women of lying, which creates a problem for the GOP's position with women in general. Once again, along with Trump, women are being ignored or discredited in favor of the powerful men representing today's gun-toting, Bannon-based GOP.

    The more the GOP tolerates Trump, Moore, and their ilk, the more likely women will support candidates that support their plight in society.

    Whenever sexual allegations are brought up against a political leader it's always "But the democrats", "But the republicans." I think it's pretty obvious that sexual misconduct transcends political boundaries. It's become a product of our culture. So instead of smearing mud on the other political party (because both are guilty), how about we evaluate how our CULTURE (not our political ideologies) sexually exploit women and how that exploitation drives the ideology that women are objects of sexual pleasure and not actual human beings that can think, have feelings, and can make their own decisions.

    Good luck with that. The Washington Post vets their articles much more than Breitbart and the Enquirer do. That is one reason they have published newspapers every day for the past 140 years. Trump and Weinstein threatened to sue everyone too. Breitbart has sent a team of "reporters" to Alabama to try to destroy these women. It is hard to imagine how much pressure they are under right now.

    Steve Bannon and Breitbart are the Republican Party these days and that's a toxic virus voters are not likely to forget in 2018.

How can a man that has shown a wanten disregard for the law run on a religious morality platform? How can anyone not see how conservatives continue to undermine their own claims of the importance of religion in establishing and maintaining a moral society?

    Your comparison is good, really good but there is a more contemporary one to use.

In those cases the politician didn't deny disgusting, immoral activity but actually admitted to sexual assault and the people still elected him!

    Clinton's a sleaze. You've brought him up many times already. He was not, as far as anybody knows, a child molester.

    Are you suggesting that a consensual affair with an adult person not your spouse is grounds to keep you out of public office? If so, let's examine the history of every politician, regardless of party, and boot them out.

    And there is now a fifth woman accusing Moore. She was 16 at the time. And the encounter she describes was definitely not consensual.

    Of course, Moore will deny this, like he's denied the other accusations. And the loyal Republicans will believe him...just like Trump (allegedly) believes Putin.

    Either that, or he really, really wants to change the subject, and quick. There are a number of possible reasons. All of them are downright scary.

    If I were inclined to support for Roy Moore before these allegations came to light (which I was not for other reasons), I would still support him.

    This is because, if the allegations are fully proven at a later date, Congress impeach and expel Moore from the Senate.

    This basically very similar to the case of Robert Menendez who is currently the senior Senator from New Jersey. Senator Menendez has been indicted on corruption charges. If found guilty, I would expect Congress to impeach and expel Senator Menendez.

    The principle here is the one popularized in the 90s, that we do not want to overturn elections based on allegations yet to be proven in a court of law.

    "What do they say about Bob Menendez, Democrat senator from New Jersey, accused of having sex with two underage girls--far worse than anything Moore is accused of?"

    Geez, you folks can't even engage in whataboutism competently.

    The sources for the accusations against Menendez were so thin that no mainstream journalists were willing to touch a story claimed by an alt-right blog with little to substantiate itself. Investigations of the sources by US journalists and the Dominican Republic police turned up several women who admitted to being paid to make false allegations. In the meantime, Menendez is on trial for corruption and no one is defending him against that.

    The WaPo vetted its sources thoroughly, citing 30 of them as part of the story. The degree of investigation is what has Mitch McConnell on the record as believing the allegations.

    And bringing up Menendez does absolutely nothing to absolve Moore. Nothing. The excuses being trotted out by his defenders only serve as evidence of complete moral bankruptcy for the sake of political expediency.

    Shaun and Impartial 7---You really should do some research into the Kennedy family and the Kennedy Administration. This kind of thing has been acceptable to Democrats for decades and had never been party-specific when it comes to hormones controlling what those in power have done. Remember King David?

    As in independent, in my view McConnell should have had the sense to exit stage left (or right, perhaps) at the same time as John Boehner from Ohio. That would have done more to drain the swamp than anything and why the Senate membership keeps electing McConnell as their leader is just amazing. The guy can't accomplish anything but receiving take-home pay. (But even that's universal in the Congress, isn't it?)

    Why are the Clinton accusers still out there? That is easy. Fox News trots them out every few months to divert attention from another republican blunder, and the women are willing to continue to be out there in public. Why aren't the Trump accusers out there? I am guessing Fox News doesn't want them and the other news stations have to much journalistic integrity to use those women in such a way. There are also some of them that are currently in the legal process. Others have decided that they prefer to move on and keep their lives private. Being out in the public on FOX News all the time does not make you any more or less honest than someone who chooses a different path.

Including McConnell, including Lindsey Graham, and John McCain. Senators having sex with minors? A-OK as long as you are a Democrat. Proven, solid fact.

    DN Subscriber,

    I am not sure how you the democrats have a double standard. You can find democrats who have forced out for sexual accusations including Presidential Candidate Gary Hart.

    Republicans were very loud about their condemnation of Bill Clinton and his "alleged" sexual misconduct with adult consenting women, and I think he should have resigned. I would think they would be even louder on alleged sexual misconduct with teenagers.

    The republicans are in a box, Moore basically admitted to dating teenage girls in his 30's with Hannity on Friday. That alone is completely wrong and unacceptable. Knowing that he was a 30 year old dating teens, it is not that hard to go to the next step, that he was sexually inappropriate with at least one of them. The democrats for the most part are sitting on the sidelines and letting the republicans execute another one of their circular firing squads.

    As far as blaming the press come on get a new line. They are simply reporting the news. Are they biased sure they ALL bring the bias as does any other human, but lets give up the act that somehow because FOX says they are "fair and balanced" that there is any truth in that.

This is the man who pledged to make Obama a one term President, obstructed everything for 8 years and even withheld the vote on a Supreme Court nominee for nearly a year. His comments today were nothing more than political maneuvering as well. Moore, his personality and votes will be in line with most of the other Republicans in the Senate. It's a done deal.

    Where are Clinton's accusers? They, especially Broaddrick, are still in the news and still claiming they were raped and still claiming that they were silenced by Hillary. Their stories are still solid and consistent.

    Where are Trump's accusers? Vanished, vaporized, disappeared. Their stories were full of holes right from the start and when the holes became too big, the accusers faded into obscurity.

    Which accusers appear to have been honest and which appear to have been merely politically expedient?

    Now let's look at the Moore case. The stories are already starting to fall apart highlighted by the most condemning accuser having her story refuted by her own mother. Of the four accusers, she was the one to claim sexual impropriety. The others claimed an older man dated younger women who were no longer minors.

    Based on the track record of WAPO and past history with Clinton and Trump regarding the credibility of their accusers, why are people accepting this story at face value instead of questioning it?

    I don't know if Moore is guilty of these charges but they sure look sketchy to me. But Dems have never been accused of being smart, just easily led.

    Allegations from Democrat employees on the eve of a special election, after the primary is over, are highly suspect. They reek of the worst kind of politics.

    If Moore is a perv, he didn't stop 30 years ago. Bring forward some allegations of recent enough behavior that we know there is an on going problem. Otherwise, get enough evidence of criminal conduct for at least an indictment.

    Whether decades old allegations are from whole cloth, or whether there is some truth being warped by current sensitivities due to allegations out of Hollywood, is not reason to destroy a man's reputation.

    So far as I've read, Moore has not been accused of any sexual or physical assault, but merely of socializing with someone younger than 2017 New York society thinks proper.

    Get an indictment for criminal conduct, find evidence of ongoing mproper conduct in the recent past, or drop the witch hunt.

    That is not to encourage easier treatment on Republican perverts, but equal justice for all, and equal treatment by the news media whose double standards are blindingly obvious.
