    If I tell the entire world "I murdered 50 people" but didn't do it.
    Am I still guilty of murdering 50 people?

    You're not guilty. But obviously everyone's gonna treat you like you did.

    Legally, sure.

    However, there's contemporaneous evidence that he did it, not counting the accuser testimony. He did it.

    You're guilty of lying. And in court its punishable under perjury.

    Yup. Moore lost due to dirty politics and unsubstantiated bullshit. The Democrats have nothing to be proud of for how they pulled off this win. But he's a horrible person with horrible ideas (mostly the backward Southern fundamentalist weirdness), so I'm certainly not going to lose any sleep over it. I'm glad he's not going to be in the Senate, but not because he's a 'child molester' or whatever. There hasn't been any credible evidence of that, and we're probably not going to hear much more about it now because 'mission accomplished.'


    Like what? He signed a yearbook for someone (which the accuser altered)? He gave someone a birthday card? You think this 'evidence' proves he put his pecker in underage girls? Wow.

    Moral of the story, people are far to quick to judge.

    By that logic, everyone is guilty.

    Um... Nope.
    Only guilty if they can prove your guilty.

    Then by that logic, everyone is guilty as everybody has lied atleast once in their life.

    I said in court. Which means when your under oath. Which is punishable by law.

    In addition to the above evidence, which shows that Roy Moore lied about not knowing the accuser (and wasn't actually altered, just labeled), you've got a whole lot more witnesses than just the accusers who claim that it was known he dated younger women, it was common knowledge that he trolled malls for younger women, and there are reports that he might have been banned from a mall for harassing younger women. I'm not saying that he is definitely guilty; I'm saying he's probably guilty.

    Regardless of whether or not the accusations are true (they probably are), he's a terrible person. I'm glad he lost.

    I'm guessing what you're referring to is this article:
    www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/locals-were-troubled-by-roy-moores-interactions-with-teen-girls-at-the-gadsden-mall/

    I read it, weeks ago. One guy won't divulge his many sources (of course), Deputy DA Jones only remembers rumors and that very convenient "common knowledge" line, and Legatt relates hearsay from a cop that nobody bothered to look up for some reason. Nobody quoted ever saw anything or knows anything firsthand. The author didn't try to confirm anything. It's bad journalism, but a perfect hit piece.

    As for the last sentence in your post, I agree. I don't like the man and wouldn't have voted for him if I lived there. But not because of this smear attack.

    Well then you won't be punished by court.
    But expect don't anyone to trust you after that lie.

    That's not an article I was referring to. Regardless, why are you defending a man who probably did what he did? The preponderance of evidence suggests that he did it, and we can prove that aspects of his denial were lies.

    Bob Saget raped and killed a girl in 1990.


    Whatever you were referring to is derivative then, because that article was the source of all those 'banned from the mall' and 'common knowledge' claims. As to why defend a man who probably did something, are you serious?

    I think the Democrats have a lot to be proud of...they won a senate seat in a state where they have virtually no presence. What exactly would you consider dirty politics? The Washington Post reporting on the women accusing him of molesting them? Let me put it this way this bitch has been playing dirty politics FOR a long time. There is evidence. As mentioned above. Doug Jones won and he deserves to be in the Senate. You should know politics is a blood sport. It has been FOR a long time. I say good job for Doug Jones jumping on the molestation accusations. That's what makes a winner. Also we should mention....the woman who was 14,Leigh Corfman justsaid he took off his clothes and touched her on her bra and her underwear and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.She even says they did not have intercourse.
