Here’s a prediction you can take to the bank. After months of alleged comments from women who really don’t have any proof that Judge Roy Moore sexually abused or molested them (other than he said/she said), it will be Roy Moore defeating Doug Jones in the special Senate election in Alabama. Take it to the bank.
There is a reason behind it too. 54% of the folks in Alabama don’t believe the allegations, and think the whole thing is a political smear job. According to a poll by left-leaning CBS News, Moore leads Doug Jones 49% to 43% with a margin of error of 3.8% among registered voters, and 4.8% among likely voters.
Unlike sexual abuse allegations that seem to be sticking to current Michigan Representative, John Conyers, and Minnesota Senator, Al Franken (and there’s actual proof on that one), the allegations aimed at Moore aren’t apparently working. Meanwhile, Conyers has resigned and Franken is facing increased pressure to resign. It’s actually gotten to the 88 year old Conyers to the point that he was hospitalized this past weekend due to “stress related causes”. Franken, while admitting “he’s a hugger, and a warm person”, has apologized, but says he doesn’t remember any of the incidents because as he says, “I’ve had thousands of pictures taken with people…I don’t remember them all.” That hasn’t sat well with a lot of folks, but now, even Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Dems in the Senate know that they need to do the right thing, and have called for his resignation.
Conyers wasn’t in such an enviable position. Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, who early on in the scandal came out and called Conyers “an icon”, has now called for his resignation. Conyers’ attorney has said that Nancy Pelosi doesn’t tell John Conyers when to step down. Only the voters in his district do. Apparently, John’s lawyer may know the law, but isn’t too keen on what is going on in the mind of his client!
But the GOP is breathing just a little bit easier with Roy Moore in the lead, despite what Mitch McConnell has said…that he would start investigating Moore if he got elected to the Senate. Somehow, I think McConnell would change his tune knowing there are going to be some very close votes coming up in the next 12 months.
Overall, I find it very interesting that most of the fallout over these sexual allegations that actually started with life-long Democrats Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein have now snared more Democrats than Republicans. If that trend continues, you’re going to see a whole LOT of Republicans taking over in the Senate and in the House. And the Democrats will continue to kiss any chance of re-taking either chamber a long goodbye!
By the way…in all of this, why aren’t we hearing anything about Bill Clinton? My Lord… he is the “Groper In Chief”, and has raped more women than anyone in prison. Someone want to tell me why this guy is still about to walk around free?
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
