Maybe it’s just me, but the recent accusations against Alabama US Senate candidate Roy Moore are four weeks out from the election Dec. 12. That is a long time in which evidence of criminal behavior from almost 40 years ago can be reviewed by voters.
If this is a hit job by the Bezos Post, as I think it might be, it could explode in the faces of the Republicans calling for Moore’s head.
I hope so.
Justice Clarence Thomas went through this same scenario with his accuser, who landed a pretty soft, high paying gig afterward. Remember Vernon Jordan offering Monika Kneepads a job at Revlon? Yea, like that. Washington works that way.
The woman making the anti-Moore accusations has a past – and is around to explain a few things.
Roy Moore has a past, and it includes many opportunities for opponents to out him for any unacceptable or illegal activities from his past, but this campaign-ending accusation hasn’t happened until now.
Four weeks is forever in our 24/7 news cycle.
Roy Moore has a chance to fight fake charges. The Bezos Post may have jumped the gun.
