The Washington Post points out that, "The legal age of consent in Alabama, then and now, is 16".
The Obama-Clinton Machine's liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I've EVER faced! The other women were between the ages of 16 and 18 when Moore would take them on dates, where nothing progressed farther than kissing.

"The freedom we enjoy thanks to all these veterans is something truly special." says Grizzlies General Manager Derek Franks. Legion family members and their guests are welcome to stay for a potluck lunch and entertainment by "American Traditions".
Three other women, all of whom also went on the record, also say Moore pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s.
So now Alabama voters have a choice: an accused child molester versus Doug Jones, a Democrat who successfully prosecuted two Klansman for killing four African-American girls.

"People are going to be voting on tax reform and repealing Obamacare and not on Roy Moore or [Democrat] Doug Jones", said Conners. The Washington Post also interviewed three other women with similar stories, except none of the others state they were forced into a sexual relationship.

Every day between now and December 12 - assuming Moore doesn't drop out - every Republican Senator will face questions about him. Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler told The Washington Examiner "there is nothing to see here", adding that Moore is "as clean as a hound's tooth". Per state law, if Moore withdraws or the party rescinds its nomination of Moore, any votes for Moore will not count and will not be certified.
