We find ourselves in a very strange time in our country.
It seems that when one person begins to make sexual assault allegations against someone else, the floodgates open up and several more women “step forward”. Now, I’m not saying I don’t have sympathy for these women if they truly have been assaulted, but how on earth are we supposed to believe every story that someone tells?
This leads us to the events that occurred this week when Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore was accused of sexually molesting teenagers nearly 40 years ago.
The reason why this story has extra importance is because there is a special election to fill the Alabama Senate seat on December 12th of this year and the GOP is not allowed to legally get a replacement in there before the vote.
However, when talking to voters, an ABC affiliate for Alabama couldn’t find ONE voter who actually believed these allegations…so Roy Moore might still win this thing.
Here’s the story from Breitbart:
During a segment that aired on Friday’s broadcast of Birmingham, AL ABC affiliate WBMA 33/40’s 5 p.m. local news, political reporter Lauren Walsh sought out voters in Columbiana, AL to gauge their reactions to the Washington Post report that alleged Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore engaged in inappropriate conduct with four teenage girls more than 34 years ago.
None of the respondents according to Walsh told her they believed the Post’s reporting.
“It’s hard to believe the events that transpired yesterday,” Gordon Fluker of nearby Wilsonville, AL said to Walsh about the Washington Post report.
Fluker’s response was the standard according to Walsh.
“Out of all the voters we spoke with Friday in Columbiana, we didn’t find one voter who believed the Washington Post report about Moore,” she said.
Columbiana is the county seat of Shelby County, a county that is the home to many of Birmingham’s southern suburbs. The county is very Republican, and in last year’s presidential election, it went for Donald Trump by a 72-23 percent margin.
In the GOP primary and the subsequent runoff for next month’s special election won by Moore, Shelby County went for his opponent Luther Strange in both instances.
Moore faces Democrat candidate Doug Jones on December 12 for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Jeff Sessions.
