Another Roy More Victim Comes Forward

[Content Note: Sexual assault.]

Earlier today, another woman came forward to tell her story of being assaulted by Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. The details are harrowing. He warned her: "You are a child. I am the District Attorney of Etowah County If you tell anyone about this, no one will believe you."

He preyed on her because she was a child.

Now some Republicans are finally starting to back away from Moore. But not so much to stand with his victims or to condemn him as to distance themselves.

How much credit do any of them believe they deserve when their president is a confessed serial sex predator?

Roy Moore is garbage. His whole party is garbage. Dangerous, despicable garbage.

Not a single Republican leader should be the slightest bit surprised that their party attracts sex abusers when a central plank of their platform is forcing women et. al. to do with their bodies a thing they do not want to do.
