Late Hit: Woman Comes Forward to Allege She Had a Relationship with a 32 Year Old Roy Moore When She Was... 14

If true, it's obviously very bad.

Three other women then alleged similar conduct:

Three other women have come forward as well to allege similar circumstances. Wendy Miller said Moore met her while she was a 14-year-old Secret Santa helper and asked her to go out when she turned 16. Another woman, Debbie Wesson Gibson, said Moore asked her out when she was 17 and they kissed, but did not engage in sexual intercourse. Gloria Thacker Deason said she and Moore began going on dates when she turned 18.

Moore has flatly denied all the accusations, calling them "fake news."

While it's not impossible to imagine this is an engineered political hit, the multiplicity of complaints is worrisome.

I certainly can imagine how this could be false: Roy Moore was a controversial, famous figure before -- as the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, getting into hugely controversial rows about a statue of the Ten Commandments at the court. And yet this didn't come out then?

Decades after the alleged incidents, the women come forward? At the same time the Democrats are fighting more desperately than ever to get a piece of the federal government back?

Given what I now know about Fusion GPS, I don't doubt that a bit of money put into the right pocket could get a nice political hit manufactured for the media.

But then, it could be true, too. Wouldn't be the first time, wouldn't be the last.

And as far as the political impact, it doesn't much matter whether it's true or not.

In law enforcement, they say "It's not what I know, it's what I can prove."

In politics, that's reversed -- "It's not what can be proved, it's what can be alleged."

Roy Moore just issued a statement:



Complicating Factor: Moore's Name Cannot be Withdrawn From Ballot at This Late Date: Odd that the story wasn't ready until now.



I don't know what this means -- does this mean that if he wins, he won't be certified as winner, giving the race to the loser Jones, or does this mean that if he wins the governor will be permitted to appoint someone to the post?
