    11/22/2017 7:25:25 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 30 replies
    Alabama’s special U.S. Senate election is less than one month away and a new poll shows Republican nominee Roy Moore holding a solid lead over his Democratic opponent Doug Jones. In a poll conducted by Sky Research on Tuesday Nov. 21 among registered Alabama voters, the results show Moore with 46.7 percent support to Jones’ 39.6 percent. 13.7 percent of voters polled remain undecided. With a margin of error of 3.1 percent, Moore maintains significant lead over Jones, but the undecided voters could swing the election either way. When asked “Do you consider your political views to be more in...

    Roy Moore's campaign called The Washington Post a "worthless piece of crap" and refused to provide proof of claims it has made to cast doubt on one of his accusers. The Washington Post is a worthless piece of crap that has gone out of its way to railroad Roy Moore, Moore campaign strategist Brett Doster wrote to The Post in an email. There is no need for anyone at the Washington Post to ever reach out to the Roy Moore campaign again because we will not respond to anyone from the Post now or in the future. Happy Thanksgiving. {..snip..}

    A part of me wants this lady to go away, another wants her to continue to give the Democratic Party migraines; she’s also great for boosting the GOP’s enthusiasm. Hillary Clinton just continues to make her way into the spotlight. With the latest accusations of sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Hillary decided to give her two-cents on Rita Cosby’s radio show last week, noting that accountability has to be exacted regarding these allegations. I bet you can guess what happened next? Cosby asked about the allegations surrounding...

    They play the race card. If that doesn't stick, they toss out the gender card, as they have with Judge Moore. If the opponent survives these attacks, then it's the class card, as it was with Mitt Romney. If none of this works, it's the LGBT card. Then there's the "E" card just "too extreme," as with Barry Goldwater and Judge Bork. When all of these fail, as they did against candidate Donald Trump and all of them were played the left freaks out and starts throwing things. All of these attacks are versions of the same...

    Former George W. Bush administration aide Tony Fratto said Wednesday that if Republicans allow Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to serve despite the serious sexual assault allegations against him, then the GOP is "over." "We can scream our heads off all we want, Alabama voters will do whatever they do," Fratto tweeted. "The real test for the GOP is whether Moore is allowed to serve, should he win. Fail that test and the party's over."

    On Wednesdays Morning Joe, while discussing President Trumps remarks to reporters yesterday on the White House lawn, NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Kasie Hunt decided to do an impromptu campaign ad for Democratic senatorial candidate Doug Jones, who is Roy Moores opponent in the Alabama special election. Part of Hunts pitch involved the fact that Jones is best known for prosecuting the perpetrators of the infamous 1963 Birmingham church bombing that killed four black girls. Co-host Mika Brzezinski instantly saw a connection between this piece of information and Trumps earlier claim to journalists that Jones is soft on crime. From...

    If Jones is to pull off a victory, it will be because women like Shirley knocked on doors, called neighbors, and worked to convince otherwise skeptical voters that his opponent is fundamentally unfit for the office hes seeking. A few weeks ago, that seemed like a tall order. As the election nears, it no longer appears quite so improbable. Allegations that Moore routinely pursued teenage girls and in some cases assaulted them when he was a single man in his thirties have caused Republican voters in Alabama to reassess their options. Some have decided to rally around the nominee. But...

    NY Post ^ | Nov 21, 2017 | John Podhoretz
    As the sex scandals continue their relentless forward march, early efforts at a course correction are beginning to emerge. Some of these efforts are necessary and involve making distinctions distinctions between, say, felonious assault, which should lead to prison, and really gross workplace behavior, which should lead to serious disciplinary action but should probably fall short of complete ruination. The danger, however, is that these distinctions get drawn in such a way that they protect one set of offenders and not the other purely on the grounds that the protected set is made up of people you like...

    Court documents involving Leigh Corfman, who says that Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore tried to engage in a sexual encounter with her when she was 14, raise questions about the timeline and narrative of Corfmans accusations against the politician. Those accusations were first publicly disclosed in a Washington Post story citing Corfman and her mother, Nancy Wells, as saying that in early 1979, Roy Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, allegedly asked Wells to watch her fourteen-year-old daughter while Wells went into a courtroom for a custody hearing. Corfman claims that Moore asked the young Corfman for her number....
