On Monday, Beverly Young Nelson became the fifth woman to accuse Roy S. Moore of sexually assaulting her. Moore was an assistant district attorney in Etowah County, Ala., at the time, and Nelson was a 16-year-old high school student who worked as a waitress.

Moore is now the Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama, in a race to fill the seat previously held by Jeff Sessions, before Sessions joined the Trump administration as attorney general.

At the time of the alleged attack, Moore was in his 30s.

Moore has tried to slough the matter off as a woman he has never heard of and didn’t know, but he inscribed Nelson’s yearbook — concrete evidence that still exists from the 1977 incident.

Moore has vowed to stay in the U.S. Senate race.

According to an expose in the Washington Post, Moore has swooped on girls as young as 14 — in other words, middle school students — and was known as a lurker at the local mall where young girls would hang out.

Roy Moore’s supporters continue to prefer to elect an alleged child molester over a Democrat, never mind all the evangelical yakking about morality. These are the same people who are at the core of Trump’s supporters, who elected The Donald in spite of what Trump said to Billy Bush on the infamous Access Hollywood tape. And at least 16 women came forward to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct, but according to the White House, they’re all just liars.

Last week, Trump said it’s all “totally fake news...It’s fake, it’s made-up stuff.”

Moore is taking a page from the Trump playbook. After all, denying everything and calling all your accusers liars certainly worked for Trump. He’s sitting in the Oval Office.

As a father of daughters, I am nauseated by all this.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says, “I believe the women.” For once, I agree with McConnell.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
