Roy Moore Gets the Herman Cain Treatment

Article:


It was déjà vu all over again as the Washington Post, who has endorsed his opponent in the Alabama Senate race, brought forth 40-year-old sexual molestation accusations against Judge Roy Moore. From Clarence Thomas, to the Duke lacrosse team, to the University of Virginia rape case, to Herman Cain, we have heard such charges before and the rush to judgment that follows.

Moore’s accusers issue the boilerplate caveat that if the charges are true, he should exit the public stage immediately in shame and certainly that is true. Then they quickly throw him under the guilty-as-charged bus that just ran over his presumption of innocence.

It matters not that Judge Roy Moore has been in Alabama politics for decades and his accusers were silent -- silent until he threatened the establishment by being a credible candidate for the U.S. Senate, having dispatched the establishment candidate, Luther Strange, in the Alabama primary. Had Moore lost the primary, it is doubtful these accusations would have surfaced. If he withdraws as his critics urge, his accusers will likely vanish into the woodwork as quickly as the accusers of Herman Cain did, their mission accomplished, after he abandoned his presidential run that was clearly gaining momentum.

In Moore’s case, as with others like his, it's sentence first, trial later. Sen. John McCain, who opposes all things Trump, leading the charge of those grabbing some rope and heading to the nearest tree:

Quote

Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) called on Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to "immediately step aside" on Thursday, faster than you can say “Anita Hill.” in the wake of a report that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old when he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney….

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying," McCain wrote. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of."


Some, like Jion Street at the anti-Trump RedState, have taken to sliming those Moore supporters who believe in the presumption of innocence by comparing them to defenders of Bill Clinton:

Quote

For years, multiple women have accused former President Bill Clinton of sexually harassing them. Some have even accused him of rape. But, to date, none of those accusations have been tried in a court of law. Therefore, none have been formally proven…

My point in relitigating the Clinton scandals is to draw a correlation between these incidents and the Washington Post’s report on Thursday that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore allegedly made sexual advances on a 14-year-old girl in the late 1970s, when he was 32-years-old.


Daresay that the allegations against Bill Clinton, the man who lied when said he never have sex with “that woman… Monica Lewinsky,” are more credible and documented than the decades-old charges against Judge Roy Moore. Maybe we should ask Juanita Broaddrick about that.

We have seen it all before. Accusations of being a sexual predator were leveled against President Trump during the campaign. So-called feminist lawyer Gloria Allred, who showed up with a group of Herman Cain accusers in 2012 to similarly attempt to derail the presidential run of a powerful and successful Republican businessman:

It doesn’t matter if the charges are false. Accusations make page one while the truth later winds up at the bottom of the classifieds. Cain’s candidacy was derailed after repeated and unproven sexual harassment allegations by former employees. But like Harry Reid’s tax lies about Mitt Romney, it worked. That is the goal of Judge Roy Moore’s accusers. Why raise the charges now after being silent for decades?

There are three things going for Moore:
1) Timing. The last minute smear is a classic tactic;
2) One of the accusers is a proven Democrat;
3) Another hired the mother of Harvey Weinstein's former lawyer.

Everything else is going against him. All accusers are on record and are probably inspired, at least in part, by the "#me too" campaign which is taking down a shocking number of Hollywood leftists. The Post, DNC and/or RNC could maybe get one or two of the women to fabricate it, but all five? Moore denies the allegations but admits dating teen-aged girls while in his thirties. The latest one - who claims attempted forcible rape - has a high school yearbook signed by him.

The leftist double-standard is there, to be sure. Bill Clinton is still untouched. Potential 2020 candidate Joe Biden gets a pass on his groping while a nonagenarian George H.W. Bush is getting the treatment. The late "Lion of the Senate", Ted Kennedy, is still an icon. Weinstein got away with what he did for decades because of political cover that evaporated with Hillary's loss to Trump. But what if these women have been going after a particularly obnoxious Democrat at the last minute, instead? Would we be skeptical of the timing or insist they be believed? Tu quoque can cut both ways.

I am not saying the women have to be believed simply because they are sticking their necks out. But they need to at least be taken seriously.

Clarence Thomas survived (barely) because he only had the one accuser and he got the support of several female co-workers who contradicted Hill's testimony. The number of accusers here takes Moore out of Thomas territory and puts him with, if not Weinstein or Cosby, then at least Spacey.

Stick a fork in Roy Moore. He's doThis is not going to end well for the GOP.
