    “Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus. There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here. Maybe just a little bit unusual.”

    — Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler (R), quoted by the Washington Examiner, defending Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore (R), who is accused of initiating sexual relations with teenage girls.
    As I said in the other thread...I am surprised this isnt legal in Bama...flipping Rednecks.

    I know they don't like the guy, but even I'm a little surprised they're this quick to throw him under the bus unless they knew about these rumors long before it got reported...
    Either that or they know there is more...

    So according to at least some Alabama Republicans, even pedophilia isn’t a dealbreaker. That’s a hell of a thing to admit to."

Plus at his age (Akin I think was in his mid 60's, Moore is 70) there's no option of dropping out, lying low for awhile and then launching a comeback in a few years. Let's say no other women come forward and Moore rides this out and gets elected. How are Itch and team possibly going to deal with him? It'd be like if Dennis Hastert won his old Congressional seat back.
    It's almost better at this point he gets elected. However, if the Dem does manage to win having that vote the next few years wouldn't be a bad thing.

    I'm sure they would but its impossible now. Absentees have already gone out. Strange could do a write in, but he'd probably need Moore to 1) drop out of the race, and 2) agree to endorse Strange. I think #1 is highly unlikely, I think we have a better chance of seeing God than #2 happening.

    Strange (or anybody else) I assume could launch a write in bid on their own, but if you figure the Dem is going to get at least 40% of the vote if not 45%, two nutters who hate each other fighting over the remaining 55-60% doesn't bode well for electing either one of them.

    Only thing for Itch and crew to do is grin and bear it while hoping against hope that no other women come forward...

    Sounds like the women who accused Trump of the same thing and then dropped their case. Just trying to destroy another anti-establishment candidate because they can't go up against it in the ballot box.
    Wow.
