    EX-Judge.

    Just like Rod Blagojevich and other disgraced pols are stripped of their honorific so does a removed from office and disbarred EX-Judge.

    Rush is attacking 'lamestream media' for ignoring 'fact' that Moore was a Southern Democrat in the 70s and was still probably (according to Rush) a Dem when he was sexually assaulting little girls in the 80s.

    That seems very doubtful. We will chalk that up to another thing you are wrong about.

    More fuel for the fire...

    Gena Richardson says she was a high school senior working in the men’s department of Sears at the Gadsden Mall when a man approached her and introduced himself as Roy Moore.

    “He said, ‘You can just call me Roy,’ ” says Richardson, who says this first encounter happened in the fall of 1977, just before or after her 18th birthday, as Moore, then a 30-year-old local attorney, was gaining a reputation for pursuing young women at the mall in Gadsden, Ala. His overtures caused one store manager to tell new hires to “watch out for this guy,” another young woman to complain to her supervisor and Richardson to eventually hide from him when he came in Sears, the women say.

    Richardson says Moore — now a candidate for U.S. Senate — asked her where she went to school, and then for her phone number, which she says she declined to give, telling him that her father, a Southern Baptist preacher, would never approve.

    A few days later, she says, she was in trigonometry class at Gadsden High when she was summoned to the principal’s office over the intercom in her classroom. She had a phone call.

    “I said ‘Hello?’” Richardson recalls. “And the male on the other line said, ‘Gena, this is Roy Moore.’ I was like, ‘What?!’ He said, ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘I’m in trig class.’ ”​

    Honestly, I think that would be a mistake. If Alabamans want to elect a pedo, they should be allowed to elect a pedo. :shrug:

    I wouldn't be so sure. A lot of Moore supporters say they're even more likely to vote for him now that they know he's a perv.

    Ahh, good old Christian values. Sexual assualt and pedophilia.

    Speaking of which a sixth woman has come forward, this one from the early 1990's when he was in private practice and this lady hired him to represent her in a divorce. Apparently, he grabbed her ass and tits and tried to take her clothes off while she was resisting and saying no. She fired him at the time and hadn't spoken to him since.

    I truthfully, genuinely hope he doesn't. And, not just because of this scandal. This certainly hasn't helped his case. But, the entirety of his tenure on the Alabama Supreme Court was a farce. A public stunt for even higher office.

    Mark my words. This man wanted to be President.

    Me too. I know otherwise rational, sane people that are still going to vote for him because they don't want a Democrat in office and they hope the Senate will remove Moore from his seat. They still don't change their stance when I brought up that it hasn't happened since the Civil War, it'll still take an investigation and a vote, and that the Senate doesn't like to do that for cases where the misconduct was known prior to the election.

    Their biggest complaint was the timing of the allegations. Had these claims come out during the general, no problem. He's got to go. But, and I think it's fair, that it seems awfully convenient that this comes out three weeks before the special election.

    My dad actually put a Doug Jones sign in his yard after he learned that the NRA approved of him. :lol:

    So do special elections need to be held a given amount of time after a resignation? That's not clear from the article. Why wouldn't the existing special election not hold up?
