Judging Roy Moore
Wall Street Journal ^ | 12/5/17 | The Editorial Board Cucks of Wall & Broad

Posted on 12/06/2017 11:24:30 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

A GOP victory in Alabama may be more costly than a defeat

....A Moore victory would keep the GOP Senate majority at 52, which seems to explain the unfortunate decision this week by President Trump and the Republican National Committee to endorse Mr. Moore. But victory would come at considerable cost. The Senate would be obliged to seat him, and the allegations would surely be referred immediately to the Ethics Committee, which is already vetting the sexual misconduct of Minnesota Democrat Al Franken.

Depending on what the committee finds, there could be a vote to censure or expel Mr. Moore. The many Republican Senators who have already called for him to step aside as a candidate would face a difficult political choice in an election year. If Mr. Moore is a Senator, the media will hang him around the neck of every Republican candidate as Democrats try to drive turnout among women and dispirit GOP voters.

A Moore defeat would also go far to discredit Steve Bannon, the former White House aide who wants to mount a primary challenge to every Senate Republican other than Ted Cruz in 2018. Mr. Bannon backed Mr. Moore in the primary, and he knows that a defeat in Alabama, of all conservative places, could persuade Republican voters elsewhere that he cares more about blowing up the GOP than he does about passing a conservative agenda.

They completely ignore the debunking of his accusers.

Prosecute the false accusers, and make an example of them.

Everyone knows — it isn’t the facts behind the accusation, it is the severity of the accusation.

Moore<>franken — franken admitted it and there is authenticated photo evidence.

‘...would surely be referred immediately to the Ethics Committee,...”

In other words, the process would be handed to a poorly designed, inoperative, nonfunctional, and unplugged “machine” which has “Ethics Committee” scribbled on it.

Congresscritters have NOTHING to do with ethics. Heck, betcha certain members cannot even spell the word.

And the saddest thing of all is that my obviously exageratted screed is not all that incorrect, given the corruption of our so-called “leaders”.

Nonsense. Alabama voters have had plenty of time to evaluate the
credibility of Moore and his fake accusers BEFORE the election.
As such, when elected, he has every right to serve...with his head held high.

Gloria Allred can shove it.

I hope that no FReeper gives as much as a penny to get by the “paywall” of the open-borders, globalist Wall Street Journal. NOT A PENNY!

The Washington Post and New York Times were written off by me before I hit 20 in 1971. I’ve dismissed their Leftist rants for decades.

The paper that surprised me was the Wall Street Journal.

For much of my life it was a paper I could respect. I didn’t always agree, but it’s staff did seem to be trying.

Today, it has sunk to the level of the WP & NYT.

What a shame...

I’m speechless. And to think I once subscribed to this useless rag. (... Back in the days when paper was used for reading material instead of glass screens.)

Dear WSJ:

I don’t believe the 38 years old story, nor the accusers veracity.

You least of all should see the politics of this.

And no, I won’t buy your paper.

There is no cost because he did absolutely nothing wrong and those who keep saying he did face financial devastation in court especially big targets like the Wall Street Journal. There is not one shred of positive evidence that he has been anything but an absolute gentleman . Dont give us 40 year crap from a liar. GO ROY!!! OUR NEWEST SENATOR. Suck it up Butter cup!!

These sanctimonious A-Holes in blue state America believe the charges against Red State Moore because it is part and partial to their sick culture.

Moore is innocent, I tell you.

Pure projection.

Let’s say Moore wins and becomes a Senator. Then he resigns. Wouldn’t the governor be able to replace him with another Republican? Would there have to be another election where another Republican most likely win?

Send it to the ethics committee. Get Moore under oath. Get his accusers under oath. Get the yearbook into a forensics lab. Let the chips fall.

As soon as he is elected the truth needs to come out.

How about lets say Moore wins and becomes Senator, and we melt the phone lines of any Republican that criticizes him on unsubstantiated allegations from democrat trailer trash women.
