‘Everyone Thought It Was Weird’: ‘Common Knowledge’ That Roy Moore Dated High Schoolers

The point being: the chances that this story is completely fabricated are slim to none. There’s something to this. Now you can very fairly ask “how much is something?” That is, you can question the details and you can suggest that the sources are grossly misrepresenting the facts, but the notion that this is 100% false is far-fetched in the extreme.

That’s what we said on Thursday evening, in our lengthy piece on the allegations against  Senate hopeful and Bonanza extra, Roy Moore:

Moore is a man who will be happy to read to you from Revelations, but who isn’t a big fan of the “revelations” that turned up in the Washington Post this week. Because what the Post article revealed is that good ol’ Roy might have had improper contact with a 14-year-old girl. That’s really inconvenient for the cowboy hat-wearin’, Bible-beatin’ Moore, who up until Thursday was pretty sure he had Jeff Sessions’ vacated Senate seat all locked up.

The whole thing is similarly inconvenient for former White House chief strategist and lonely guy drinking a martini at the back of the local bowling alley, Steve Bannon:

See Roy was part of Bannon’s “populist/nationalist revolt” and because there’s nothing more “revolting” than a guy who “guides [14-year-old girls’] hands to touch him over his underwear,” Moore’s downfall is a major blow to Steve’s push to upend the GOP establishment.

Of course Bannon and Moore both insist that the allegations are completely false – a figment of the “Amazon Washington Post’s” imagination and also, apparently, a mainstay in the nightmares of several women who spoke to the Post. You can read all about how Bannon is trying to spin this here.

And although Moore and Bannon are trying their hardest – bless their hearts – this is a losing battle. There is no way that Roy Moore is going to come out of this with any semblance of dignity. One way or another, this is going to cost him and it’s about damn time, because if you read our original post (the first one linked above), Moore has no business holding public office.

On Saturday, the notion that these allegations are false was further debunked when Teresa Jones, a former colleague of Moore who served as deputy district attorney for Etowah County, Ala, said the following in an e-mailed statement to CNN:

It was common knowledge that Roy dated high school girls, everyone we knew thought it was weird.

We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall … but you really wouldn’t say anything to someone like that.

Oops.

As for why the girls didn’t come forward earlier, a lawyer for Gloria Thacker Deason, (who says she dated Moore when she was 18 and he was in his 30s) said simply this on Saturday after Roy attacked the Post’s sources at an event:

He knows full well why these women did not tell what he did to them before this week. As young teenage girls in the late 1970s, they had no way of knowing their rights, especially against him, considering he was a district attorney at the time.

Nothing further.

  1. Since people like Roy Moore think that the legal age of consent is about 12, or whenever a female begins to appear to them as female, it’s no wonder so many of them think this is a non-story.

  2. and by the way, before anyone brings up Kevin Spacey, just note that if Kevin Spacey were actually running for office (as opposed to just playing a President in a TV show), we’d would most assuredly be calling him out in posts the same way we’re doing to Moore.

  3. It’s either Bannon’s face (omg that picture!) or thinking about all the girls we don’t know about yet that Moore touched that makes me want to puke.

    And after all that has been said thru today, his campaign funds are cut off, even Hannity knows the guy is total scum, and he still refuses to step down? Hard to imagine how his large family feels about all this non-stop news about him! He has 4 children and 5 grandchildren. One of his boys, 27 yr old Caleb, was arrested for the 9th time just last month!

    IRS has investigated a non-profit foundation Moore founded, his wife is President, Foundation for Moral Law…yes, honest to God, Moral Law. “The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) warned the foundation about discrepancies in its tax filings in 2013, saying that the issues “could jeopardize your exempt status”. “A number of charity and tax law experts have said that the foundation’s activities “raised questions about compliance with IRS rules, including prohibitions on the use of a charity for the private benefit or enrichment of an individual”. “Additional reporting by The Washington Post that October found that the $498,000 that Moore was guaranteed in back pay was not declared to the IRS; tax experts say that it should have been and that Moore would have had to pay more than $100,000 in federal tax.” Didn’t bother them when a neo-nazi became a donor, a holocaust denier.

    “Moore was a leading voice in the anti-Obama birther movement, which promoted the debunked conspiracy theory that Obama is not a U.S. citizen. Moore has also suggested, without providing any evidence, that former President Obama is secretly a Muslim.”

    You can read about his opinion of the Civil War, Education, LGBT, against Muslims and immigration, that he praises Putin and what does he thinks about Russia interfering in our election–Moore stated “Everybody else thinks it’s the Russians. I think it was the providential hand of God.”

    There was so much to read about this man and they have barely scratched the surface. Yeah sure, he belongs in the Senate with the likes of what is in there right now! How dare them support this ridiculous example of a human being! Sure makes me think about Alabama in a whole new light — they know this shit about him and they still want to put him in the Senate rather than a Democrat? What the hell is in the water in Alabama???

    Here you go — read all about him! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Moore

  4. None of this is shocking and anyone who says they are shocked is dishonest. Whatever it was that Moore was thinking or “feeling” at the time is no different than what almost any other healthy male has thought or felt at one time or another. What we should be focused on is the hypocrisy. Most of us have refrained from indulging these feelings because, at the end of the day, we want to do no harm to others or ourselves. That can be dangerous because its a somewhat flexible standard and, I’m guessing that’s where many have gone wrong.

    This guy, however, supposedly lived by the credo of “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…” So, what’s his defense? I suppose it will be that the Lord approved because if He didn’t approve He would have delivered Moore from Evil. In that twisted sense, Moore should be coming back with the response that his relationships were all sanctioned by the Holy Spirit so there is nothing for him to be ashamed of.

  5. Anyone with two functional brain cells has known for a very long time Hollywood and Washington DC are absolute cesspools!!
    Money is power and the two together will by definition corrupt!
    Because humans are involved!
    That’s all folks

  6. Well I’m waiting for the “judge” to come on the TV with the mini-bible open with the page marker dangling and come with guns blazing (pun intended) and tears in his eyes (Swaggart style) and tell the world he has sinned and is asking for the lord to forgive him. The christian right will forgive anyone who swears to the lord god almighty that they are sinners and want a second, no third, no fourth, no fifth ah sh*t their hundredth chance to prove that their religion is the only one that counts. All other religions are an abomination in the eyes of their awesome god. The moment will come and Roy will if need be play that card and it will probably work in Alabama.
