Excerpts from this article:


A poll that previously had Democrat Doug Jones leading the U.S. Senate special election in Alabama by 4 points now has Republican Roy Moore up by 5 as he continues to battle accusations that he engaged in sexual misconduct four decades ago.


The change in the JMC Analytics poll, which shows Moore ahead 48-43, demonstrates “partisan preferences have reasserted themselves” and that the “sexual misconduct allegations against Moore have not materially impacted the race,” the pollster said.


Two weeks before the Dec. 12 election, 29 percent of the Alabama voters surveyed said the allegations against Moore make them more likely to vote for him. The RealClearPolitics polling average also shows a reversal, with Moore now up 2 percent after indicating last week that Jones had a narrow lead.


Moore lost a double-digit lead in the polls in the reliably Republican state after the Washington Post on Nov. 9 published the accusations of [Leigh] Corfman – who claims Moore took her to his house and touched her sexually when she was 14 and he was 32…


Since then, five other women have come forward, including Beverly Young Nelson, who claims Moore sexually assaulted her, and Tina Johnson, who accuses the Republican candidate of groping her in his law office when she was a teen.


Meanwhile, Alabama Republican Rep. Mo Brooks defended Moore in a radio interview Wednesday, questioning Corfman’s claims, and asserting accuser Nelson is lying and that the yearbook inscription she presented as evidence is a forgery.


Breitbart News reported Wednesday [] that it obtained copies of court documents indicating a possible motive for Johnson’s accusation that Moore groped her in 1991 when she was in his law office regarding a contentious battle for the custody of her son.


Moore represented Johnson’s mother, who ultimately was awarded custody of the 12-year-old son. Johnson described her daughter as an unfit, absent and unstable mother with a “violent nature,” noting she “has been treated by a psychiatrist when she was approximately 15 years of age.”


A One News America report [ ] questioned the motive of retired Alabama police officer Faye Gray, who claims she was ordered to keep an eye on Moore at sporting events and at the Gadsden Mall because he was known to make unwanted advances on teen girls. OAN said two of Gray’s sons were arrested for drug distribution, and Moore prosecuted a case in 1981 in which Gray’s brother, Jimmy Wright, was arrested for distributing controlled substances. OAN’s report also found that Moore ruled, in an alimony case, against convicted drug dealer Richard Hagedorn, who OAN said is the brother of longtime Washington Post editor David Hagedorn.


At the rally Monday in Henager, Alabama…the candidate [Roy Moore] again declared the accusations he made unwanted romantic or sexual advances on teenage girls almost 40 years ago are “completely false,” reported.


“I don’t know any of (the women),” he said.


Moore told supporters at the rally that the accusations are part of a scheme by Democrats to draw attention from the issues.


Moore said it’s “no different than when the Washington Post brought out the Russia investigation at a time when President Trump is trying to get his agenda passed.”


‘Clearly a liar’



Brooks [Mo Brooks – experienced prosecutor and District Attorney] told “The Dale Jackson Show” on WVNN radio in Athens, Alabama, that Nelson is “clearly a liar,” contending the yearbook inscription allegedly signed by Moore is fraudulent, CNN reported.


Moore attorney Philip L. Jauregui has demanded that Nelson and her lawyer, Gloria Allred, hand over the yearbook to be examined by a third party. Allred said Tuesday she and her client will comply only if the Senate holds a hearing in which Moore testifies.


[Of course, Gloria Allred knows full well that Roy Moore is not even in the Senate yet and that there is no way that the Senate would conduct a hearing before Moore is even elected. It is obvious that Gloria Allred is stalling because she knows the yearbook allegation is fake. – Donna Garner]


Brooks insisted the accusations against Moore would not lead to a jury conviction in a court.


“the media likes to say ‘well, there are nine complainers.’ Seven of them aren’t complainers. In fact, I would be calling seven of those ladies as witnesses on behalf of Roy Moore on the issue of whether he is engaged in any kind of unlawful conduct.”


Brooks argued that Corfman’s accusation is undermined by the stories of the women who say Moore dated them as teens.


“So, now you’re down to one witness who said that Roy Moore engaged in nonconsensual sexual contact, OK?” he said. “Well, that one witness’ testimony is in direct and stark contrast with that of the other seven ladies, who said that he acted like an officer and a gentleman. And you look at the preponderance of the evidence and then you add Roy Moore’s denial and you add his long deeply held Christian beliefs and I just don’t think there’s any way in the world that a jury would agree with the assertions of the Washington Post and others that are trying to make us believe in the state of Alabama that we would be electing a pedophile.”


…“Nothing is more precious in the sight of most people than the life of the child, so I can see why people in Alabama would be enraged knowing that Doug Jones is willing to take the life of a child,” Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead told the Hill.


“Alabamians are pro-life and as they find out how extremely liberal Doug Jones is on this and other issues like transgender bathrooms, they are going to flee from him. … Voters need to be educated on the candidates and the issues regardless of what other allegations are out there,” he said.


A veteran who served with Moore in Vietnam, wrote a column on Moore’s behalf, saying he knew him “to be an altogether honorable, decent, respectable, and patriotic commander and soldier.”


Bill Staehle of Asbury Park, New Jersey, who said he’s been an attorney for 42 years, recalled an incident in Vietnam in which he and Moore had been invited by a colleague to go out for drinks. When Moore discovered that the colleague had taken them to a brothel, Moore insisted that they leave immediately.


“That evening, if I didn’t know it before, I knew then that with Roy Moore I was in the company of a man of great self-control, discipline, honor, and integrity. While there were other actions by Roy that reinforced my belief in him, that was the most telling,” Staehle said.


“I reject what are obvious, politically motivated allegations against Roy of inappropriate dating behavior. What I saw, felt and knew about him in Vietnam stands in stark contrast to those allegations,” he continued.


“I sincerely doubt that Roy’s character had changed fundamentally and dramatically in a few short years later.”
