The Judge Roy Moore Problem

While the Washington Post and the desperate far-Left activists, Democrat politicians and so-called "moderate" Republicans obsessively work to destroy Judge Roy Moore and his candidacy, the mother of Moore's accuser is telling a different story.

The tragedy of this matter may well be more about the GOP than about Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore.

In the blink of an eye so-called "moderate" Republicans (and some who claim to be conservatives) have joined the chant, "crucify him, crucify him," as Judge Roy has been led into the public square to be tried by the press and the politicians, rather than the facts, which are still unknown.

The Washington Post created the story, claiming that Judge Roy Moore---the GOP candidate to replace the Alabama Senate seat vacated by now Attorney General Jeff Sessions---had made sexual advances toward a teenage girl 39 years ago. The girl was 18 years younger than Moore at the time.

Other news sources immediately began publishing a version of the same story based on the Post story, not on their own investigative work.

It's not surprising that the news media and the Democrats teamed up against Moore.

What is surprising---and telling---is how quickly many in the Republican Party piled on before knowing the facts.

My friend, Bryan Fisher, talk show host on American Family Radio, says, "The senators who have dogpiled Moore---Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Jon Cornyn, Lisa Murkowski, and a host of other establishment types---are lawmakers, and certainly know that the first principle of American jurisprudence is 'innocent until proven guilty'. And yet on the basis of a single unsubstantiated witness dredging up something she claimed happened 39 years ago, Moore's would be colleagues have indicted him, prosecuted him, and condemned him to the Ninth Circle of Dante's Inferno. All in 15 minutes."

Virtue is not driving this attempted crucifixion, it is driven by self-serving personal ambition on the part of all accusers---at least at this point because the facts are simply not yet known.

The establishment Republicans didn't want conservative Moore, they wanted their GOP mainstream "moderate" candidate.

Fischer says, "Despicably, Sen. McCain has taken the lead in passing final; judgment on Moore before the ink was dry on the front page of the Washington Post. McCain even admits he is not doing it on the basis of any concrete evidence but merely on the basis of wholly uncorroborated accusations, which even the Post calls nothing more than 'allegations'."

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

The righteous indignation of Senator McCain rings hollow. It was McCain who dumped his first wife after returning from captivity in Vietnam, calling her "frumpy" and "overweight" and pursuing an affair with a woman who was 18 years---yes, 18 years younger at the time.

While he served our country with distinction, he is not presently acting on the same principles of integrity.

I guess you can understand Mitch McConnell's motivation. After spending more than $33 million to defeat Moore and give the nomination to the "moderate Republican," McConnell is probably irritated and obviously embarrassed. And he should be. Moore won by 9 points.

McConnell and the so-called moderates spent tens of millions of dollars to elect their kind of a Republican---but the voters disagreed with the GOP establishment---much like they did in the presidential election last November.

Here's what has happened since the Washington Post ran their hit piece last Thursday.

The mother of Leigh Corfman, who has made the allegations against Judge Moore, told Breitbart News exclusively Saturday, that the Washington Post worked to convince her daughter to give the interview to WAPO about the allegations.

Nancy Wells, the mother of the accuser Leigh Corfman, said her daughter would not have made the accusations if the Washington Post would not have convinced her to give them an interview.

The mother says, "She did not go to them, they called her."

Now 3 other women are saying that Roy Moore also tried to date them as well---and made inappropriate sexual advances. They were between the ages of 16 and 18 at the time. He was about 30.

Moore says he absolutely did not do what he is being accused of doing and did nothing wrong.

Corfman's mother says that her daughter told the Post that she took calls from Moore on the phone in her bedroom---but she didn't have a phone in her bedroom during those years.

Corfman, herself, told the Post that she has had a very troubled life including 3 divorces, several bankruptcies, and a history of drug abuse.

Fischer says, "Ms. Corfman has made a cottage industry out of making false and slanderous accusations of sexual impropriety against Christian leaders. According to a neighbor, "she...went to various churches within our denomination and accused at least three other pastors besides an uncle of ours [of] making sexual advances at her. Each time that she brought it to a district board for Alabama they found her to be uncredible [sic] and she changed her story many times."

At an event Saturday, Moore told the audience that he absolutely did not do what he is being accused of doing.

He raised the question others, including Fox's Sean Hannity and radio talk show host Mark Levine, are asking:

Why has this not come out sooner?

He said, "For forty years I have been closely scrutinized in the press and the public media. I have had investigations by the attorney general, I've had investigations by the judicial inquiry commission on more than one occasion. I've been in 5 statewide campaigns in which they do opposition research, as you can see in every one I've run in...I've been investigated more than any other person in the country."

Why would this come out now?

Additionally, Judge Moore has taken a biblical stand on both abortion and same-sex marriage. And has been a strong advocate for religious freedom and public display of the Ten Commandments. Those activist groups have come against him with the force of hell---yet none of these current accusations have ever been made.

Moore asks why would these women, now, after nearly 40 years suddenly feel they must make these allegations?

I think most of us have some understanding of how dirty and desperate politics have become---especially the politics of the Left.

But why would the Republican elite bail on a candidate within minutes of these allegations being made---with no proof on the part of the accusers?

Fischer speaks to that as well. He says there is one simple answer why these so-called "moderates" have done everything humanly possible to defeat this man and are now doing all possible to destroy him:

So why have the Poobahs of the Black Lagoon like McConnell, McCain, Cornyn, Murkowski and the rest been so quick to land on Judge Moore like a falling safe? For one simple reason: they despise genuine conservatives. They despise ordinary Americans like us who believe in the Ten Commandments, natural marriage, normative sexuality, right and wrong, the Constitution as written by the Founders, the rule of law, and the Judeo-Christian tradition of truth claims and moral values.
The sad but transparent truth is that they hate us. They don't want to be bothered by conservatives, they don't want to hear from conservatives, they don't want to see conservatives, they don't want to talk to conservatives, they don't want to work with conservatives. They want us out of sight and out of mind.
But we're not going anywhere. And neither is Judge Moore.
