If this brings down Roy Moore, I’d probably have to reach back to when Jesse Helms or Fred Phelps died for an example of a grave I’d so gleefully dance upon.

It’s hard to think of a more damaging story to this particular candidate, at this particular time, than the one The Washington Post just reported about Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore. Allegations that he had a sexual encounter with a teenage girl when he was in his 30s directly pierce Moore’s decades-long image as a righteous candidate who would bring morality back to American government.

Leigh Corfman said that when she was 14 years old and Moore was 32, he took her to his house and touched her sexually, The Post’s Stephanie McCrummen, Beth Reinhard and Alice Crites report. Three other women said that Moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s. Two said he offered them alcohol when they were underage.

I’m always surprised to see a self-righteous Republican godbotherer stand accused of sexual misconduct.  /s
