One of those women alleges that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 14 years old.
In the aftermath of these allegations — and a subsequent allegation of brutal assault brought forward Monday — far too many conservatives have tripped over themselves in their haste to defend the Alabama Republican.
According to Pollak, “the 16-year-old and the 18-year-old have no business in that story,” because the age of consent in Alabama is 16. “The same thing happened to President Trump a few weeks before his election last year except it was several women making allegations.” Falwell is right on one count: The same thing happened to President Trump.
Pollak insisted that those relationships, being legal, were “perfectly legitimate.” He went on to argue, “As far as we know, there’s only one relationship that’s been alleged that is problematic.” . But in Trump’s case, as in Moore’s, there exists plenty of credible evidence that he has indeed committed sexual assault.
Still more troubling, some seemed to suggest that, even if the allegations were true, it wouldn’t be a cause for concern. Maybe just a little bit unusual.” Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr., a noteworthy Evangelical leader and prominent supporter of Donald Trump, told Religion News Service that he believes Moore is innocent.
’s front-page headline jumped out ahead of the news: “After Endorsing Democrat in Alabama, Bezos’s Washington Post Plans to Hit Roy Moore with Allegations of Inappropriate Relations with Teenagers; Judge Claims Smear Campaign.” Enough spin to make you dizzy. “It comes down to a question who is more credible in the eyes of the voters — the candidate or the accuser,” Falwell said.
Moore doesn’t need to be found guilty in a court of law for us to believe his accusers, or at least to acknowledge their credibility.But when many in the GOP continue to defend Trump and Moore against credible accusations of assault, it gives the Left ammunition with which to double down on those attacks.What’s more, it reveals the hypocrisy of those on the right who have long criticized the Left for embracing Bill Clinton while condemning conservatives who don’t live up to their values.For his part, Moore denies the accusations, though perhaps unconvincingly.Certainly, he has due-process rights, and these accusations haven’t been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
