Two More Women Accuse Roy Moore of Assault

[Content Note: Sexual assault.]

Sabrina Siddiqui at the Guardian reports:
Two more women have come forward to accuse Roy Moore of sexual assault, with one claiming the controversial Alabama Senate candidate gave her a forceful kiss that scared her when she was around 18 and another saying Moore groped her buttocks in his law office in 1991, when she was 28.

...Richardson told the Post she was a senior in high school when Moore first approached her at the Gadsden Mall in the fall of 1977, just before or after her 18th birthday. Moore, then around 30 years old, asked for her phone number and the name of her school.

Richardson said when she declined to give Moore her number, he called her school days later and asked to speak with her — prompting her to be pulled from her trigonometry class to take the call from the principal's office.
Not only is Roy Moore an aggressive creep; his stalking, harassment, and abuse of women and girls was clearly abetted by an enormous number of people.

With each new disclosure of Moore's harm, his numbers drop in the polls. Naturally, Republicans are scrambling to figure out what to do to retain the seat and their slim Senate majority.

Lots of plans. None of them decent. There is no such thing as decency in the Republican Party anymore. Which was evident long before Roy Moore became a Senate candidate.
