I tend to agree with that sentiment.

IF the allegation were true--and that is really an enormous "if"--it is about something that happened almost four decades ago. And Roy Moore may be an entirely different person now than he was then. (In fact, I am a much different person than I was 38 years ago, when I was only 31.)

But I tend to doubt the veracity of the claim, anyway...
