Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore too conservative for GOP establishment elites who try to take him down

Sex abuse has become the issue of the day. After initial complaints surfaced, emboldening others, allegations about media mogul Harvey Weinstein reached epic proportions. As per the latest script, he checked himself into rehab. We’d already seen this explosive scenario with Bill Cosby as women came forth with their stories. Then came the even more difficult exposés as young boys channeled into the entertainment industry began revealing the abuse by movie celebrities who preferred them to the glamorous females who surrounded them.

Syracuse.com provides a seemingly endless list of Hollywood celebs who have had allegations made against them.

Now it gets political. Roy Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, recently won a hotly contested GOP senate primary runoff election in that state, to succeed Jeff Sessions who is now serving as U.S. Attorney General in the Trump administration.  Appointed Senator Luther Strange lost despite being backed with millions of dollars in support from a Senate PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“The attempt by the silk-stocking Washington elitists to control the vote of the people of Alabama has failed,” Moore declared on election night.

Maybe. Maybe not. They play hardball and don’t like to lose.

The establishment was none too happy with the election outcome. What better way to take down this strong Christian conservative, who was a Captain in Vietnam after graduating from West Point, and prior to attending law school, than to allege sexual misconduct? It’s the rage.

 The interestingly timed bombshell accusations come from Leigh Corfman, a three-time divorcee so deeply in debt she’s filed for bankruptcy protection on several occasions.  She now claims Moore engaged in “sexual misconduct” with her 38 years ago when she was 14 and Moore was 32. According to her account, there was no actual sexual contact. As a troubled teen from a broken home, she reportedly used drugs and attempted suicide.

But who does John McCain believe? McCain, the self-appointed judge and jury says, “The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they are proud of.”

Our bet is the starkly politically motivated accusations will energize Roy Moore’s supporters.
