    I'm curious. What is the statue of limitations on sexual molestation of underage girls? Is there any way Roy Moore could still face legal ramifications for what he did to those young girls?
    I saw on YouTube yesterday that he told Hannity, "I always asked their Mothers if I could date them". Disgusting.

    He should be prosecuted, but the justice system in Alabama may be rigged.

    This is what Moore and his backers are alledging - a smear campaign of activities which took place so long ago they are no longer prosecutable.

    whether they would have been prosecutable back then either is debatable. the police would need to demonstrate that (a) Moore knew his victims were underage, and (b) intended to proceed to intercourse, rather than simply offensive banter.

    Moore's behavior, it appears was "common knowledge" 30 years ago, before he was famous and powerful. which kind of supports his claim that this was all perfectly timed to put a democrat in the senate.

    But that does not exonerate Moore from abhorrent behavior. Based on the preponderance of the evidence, he should withdraw. And both parties should do a better job vetting their candidates on past behavior. not only sexual picadillos, but also mishandling top secret documents; accepting money from foreign powers; destruction of evidence, etc.

    chalk one up to the democrats. this is entirely political, and well played. Moore is a pariah.

    I saw on the news this morning that he signed the yearbook of one of his victims. He had to know she was underage.:confused:
    This same lady said he pushed her head toward his crotch. That's more than banter.

    Interesting how when the Clintons did something illegal it was deemed "old news" that shouldn't even be looked into much less prosecuted. But when a Republican allegedly did something 30+ years ago, it needs to be thoroughly investigated.

    No one wants to exonerate Moore's abhorrent behavior. Now, if only the special treatment that the Clintons and other Democrats receive would also stop and allow their actions to be investigated as fully as Moore's is being investigated.

    Did Bugsy check for Arkansas..I think you'd better. Or are you gonna say that what the women who came forward about Bill don't count but the women the WAPO found miraculously, because we must ask...How did the WAPO know these women had been _____ by Moore since they never came forward in all this time?

    Because if you don't check for Arkansas, women may never vote for democrats again!

    You say he should withdraw but also carp that it's "entirely political." That's incoherent. The real question is not why he's being called to account now, but why he wasn't called to account long ago.

    And he could certainly be prosecuted for sexual assault against the 14 year old then, and the same holds true today if, as it appears, there is no statute of limitations for the offense.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! That is so effen funny:

    Answer: A statue of limitations is the time allowed, by a newspaper or reporter to find someone who in 50 billion years has never come forward on sexual assault charges, and they show how they knew that this person was assaulted 50 years ago who never told anyone.

    Under age? or under the age of consent. Those are two different things. I read the age of consent in Alabama at the time was 16.

    The Statue of Limitations.

    I can be sure but does the sign in the background say Presidential Pawn or Presidential Porn?

    One of the girls he molested was 14 years old at the time of the incident.

    The real question is how did the WAPO find these women? Police Records? They told parents? Filed a report with________?
