Locals Were Troubled by Roy Moore’s Interactions with Teen Girls at the Gadsden Mall


"This past weekend, I spoke or messaged with more than a dozen people—including a major political figure in the state—who told me that they had heard, over the years, that Moore had been banned from the mall because he repeatedly badgered teen-age girls. Some say that they heard this at the time, others in the years since. These people include five members of the local legal community, two cops who worked in the town, several people who hung out at the mall in the early eighties, and a number of former mall employees. (A request for comment from the Moore campaign was not answered.) Several of them asked that I leave their names out of this piece. The stories that they say they’ve heard for years have been swirling online in the days since the Post published its report. “Sources tell me Moore was actually banned from the Gadsden Mall and the YMCA for his inappropriate behavior of soliciting sex from young girls,” the independent Alabama journalist Glynn Wilson wrote on his Web site on Sunday. (Wilson declined to divulge his sources.) Teresa Jones, a deputy district attorney for Etowah County in the early eighties, told CNN last week that “it was common knowledge that Roy dated high-school girls.


Republican see your story, saw Hannity defending Moore and raise the ante to...

Best line I saw: Republicans destroy their coffee makers in support of pedophilia.

Actually, this one, I'd give the credit to Trump but this is something any US president would do... let's see if the republican would 'villafie' Trump for bringing back 'thieves' similar to the way they did Obama with Bergdahl


I say Trump just happened to be in office. Of course they won't vilify him.

I see Trump milking this cow dry. I hate to say it but this is going to make his approval rating rise.

Teflon Don strikes again!

Question.. non partisan etc

Would Obama had come out and offered some sort of condolences for this tragedy?

I just feel like he would've said something..

500 people dead but oh well they were probably future terrorists
*like when the IDF intentionally killed the kids playing soccer on the beach.

True but if people were watching Trump

WASHINGTON — U.S. intelligence officials suspect that North Korean officials finally released Cincinnati native Otto Warmbier last month because they realized he was dying and they did not want that to happen on their watch, according to President Trump’s national intelligence director...

Jeff Sessions is starting to remember his having contact with the Russians. He still doesn't recall much

LINK

Quote:
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) presented Sessions with dozens of instances in which Sessions answered “I do not recall” when asked by members of Congress about contacts between the campaign and Russia. Jeffries also suggested that Sessions’ faulty memory betrayed hypocrisy, since Sessions had suggested last year that Hillary Clinton was guilty of perjury when she couldn’t remember things during the FBI probe into her emails. He also pointed to Sessions’ past arguments in favor of removing President Bill Clinton from office for inaccurately recounting events in the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Republican National Committee Pulls Funding For Roy Moore’s Senate Campaign

It's a start . . . not that it will make a difference.

Roy Moore's supporters still 'believe in him' as GOP senators withdraw endorsements


LINK

Quote:
But in Shelby County, Alabama, on the outskirts of Birmingham, many who spoke to WBMA-TV said they are sticking by Moore.

Nancy Fluker and her husband, Gordon, said they believe Moore's denial of having had a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old when he was 32.

“I believe him that he didn't do it,” Gordon Fluker said. “I think it's something someone waited until an opportune moment to put on the news across the world, to downgrade him.”

Similarly, Susan Conn, who owns Main Street Florist in downtown Columbiana, Alabama, told WBMA-TV, she is suspicious of the timing of the allegations.

“I just don't see how he could be guilty now and not be guilty in all these other elections” in which he ran, Conn said.

Conn said she voted for Moore's Republican rival in the primary runoff, Luther Strange, but will now vote for Moore in the general election.


Those waiting for Trump to weigh in remember the Access Hollywood tapes.

Senate Plans to End Obamacare Mandate in Revised Tax Proposal

Quote:
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans have decided to include the repeal of the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that most people have health insurance into the sprawling tax rewrite, merging the fight over health care with the high-stakes effort to cut taxes.


Quote:
If it becomes law, the repeal would save more than $300 billion over a decade but result in 13 million fewer Americans being covered by health insurance by the end of that period, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

Funniest is that Hannity is buying 500 keurigs to give out to followers to destroy. Yes. He's giving a company that stopped sponsoring him 50 grand to teach them a lesson.

Now that he fears more sponsors will leave him, Hannity has given Moore 24 hours to clear up all the inconsistencies in his defense. If not, Hannity will urge him to leave the race! Stay tuned.

I love how he doesn't remember having the meeting until shown a photo, but then he remembers details about it, but only ones that exonerate him.

I feel as though they know that this won't go anywhere regardless, so if they are going to go out, go out swinging. At the least, those hard core conservatives can say we've tried everything to repeal Obama Care, even included it in the tax bill, but those darn liberal Republicans get in our way once again.
