Last week the Washington Post (WaPo) reported that the Republican candidate for the US Senate from Alabama, Judge Roy Moore, dated a 14- year old girl in the 1970’s. This was the first time that this accusation has been raised in several decades and several elections Judge Moore has had in the past 40 years. Moore immediately denied the charges, tweeting that “The forces of evil will lie, cheat, steal –– even inflict physical harm –– if they believe it will silence and shut up Christian conservatives like you and me.”.

Almost immediately Democrats and Republican elites began calling for Moore to drop out of the race with the election only a month away. Republican Senate Majority Leader and anti-Trumper Mitch McConnell hinted that he may not seat Roy Moore when he wins.
However, conservatives like Sean Hannity and Mark Levin stood up for Moore and accused the WaPo article of being a complete fabrication and another liberal hit piece (similar to the bus video released on President Trump a month before the Presidential election).
Next news about the woman accusing Moore was released and it showed a very unstable individual indeed:
Purportedly Moore’s main accuser Leigh Corfman has had three divorces, filed for bankruptcy three times, and has been charged with multiple misdemeanors.
Posts on Moore's FB page indicate that Corfman, has claimed several pastors at various churches made sexual advances at her.

Another woman who accused Moore of improper sexual advances was found to be a worker on the Clinton campaign and a Hillary supporter.
She scrubbed her Facebook account but not soon enough as her anti-Trump and anti-Moore posts were later reported.
The good news is that citizens in Alabama do not believe that the Washington Post is a credible news organization and are willing to give candidate Moore the benefit of the doubt.
A local news channel over the weekend was unable to find a single person who believed the WaPo article.
