Lots of people are.
I listened to Sherrod Brown say he should step aside as well on MSNBC last night.

Almost like it happened last week.
A traumatic event like nearly being raped, and being told no one will believe you by the rapist, can do that to a person.

Roy Moore was in the national spotlight for defying the atheist activist inspired court order to remove a monument to the 10 commandments. Curiously none of the sexual assault or molestation accusations emerged although they would have been gold to a media trying to smear Moore as a religious crazy. But the WaPo reporter tasked with opposition research struck gold almost immediately.

If we look at the record of other men who engaged in this type of activity Harvey Weinstein, Louis C K and Bill Clinton we see a pattern of nearly continuous repetition. Yet with Moore the accusations are actions that are at least 30 years old. Unlike the others Moore just suddenly stopped. Sexual assault is about failure to control impulses yet Moore controlled his perfectly for decades.

How do you explain so many Republicans turning their back on him too?

I wonder what advice Clarence Thomas or Hermain Cain could offer to Roy Moore?
Smells like nothing more than a political hit job at the moment.
IF any of this turns out to be true- alrighty then.
If not, how on earth is Moore supposed to regain his life as he knew it?

Unfortunately, politics have always been a 'target' game. The more people you ticked off, the larger your target becomes.

If Moore did indeed do what has been claimed, regardless of how long ago, then he should be held accountable, just as any of the others should be who did these things recently.

Political hit job or not, he had skeletons. And it doesn't really matter who opened the door.

This from Speaker Paul Ryan;

"He should step aside. Number one, these allegations are credible. Number two, if he cares about the values that he claims to care about, then he should step aside."

Writing in a year book doesn't actually prove he knew her.Nor does it prove the molestation accusations are true.
