"One of two things should happen: If these allegations are true, Judge Moore should drop out now. Today," Cruz told reporters. "The people of Alabama deserve to have the option of voting for a strong conservative who has not committed criminal conduct. Or two, if these allegations are not true, then Judge Moore needs to come forward with a strong, persuasive rebuttal demonstrating that they are untrue."

When asked if he was pulling his endorsement, Cruz responded: "I am not able to urge the people of Alabama to support his candidacy so long as these allegations remain un-refuted."


This was the right thing to do.

Wow.  Even if he wins, Moore won't last in the Senate.  Not after this from Sen. Cruz ...

"Both last week and this week, there are serious charges of criminal conduct that if true, not only make him unfit to serve in the Senate but merit criminal prosecution," he added

Cruz added that normal men don't sign high school girls' yearbooks.

According to Erick Erickson's Twitter, he was known as a lawyer who cruised malls for young girls, and was ultimately banned from one mall for badgering them.

Edited---cops went on the record as remembering this.

@RetBobbyMI, I hardly think it's a rush to judgment.  Far from it.

With regret, I think you're right. Cruz is not McConnell and if cops are now weighing in then he's cooked.

So on what basis is their judgement? Is there anything more than unproven allegations?

The drip, drip is becoming an avalanche.  Moore needs to break out of this and now.

Here's a link to an article from another thread that's paints a disturbing  picture of Moore.

Right... An article with gossipers that retain incredible clarity, and oddly enough, not a single official confirmation... Much ado about JD Thomas, who would not confirm the tale - if anyone would remember multiple acts of escorting Moore off the premises, it would be him... Likewise past managers - all of whom declined to say a damn thing.

You guys really need to find a blue dress.

The sad reality is:  An avalanche of innuendo and gossip takes on a life of its own.  It's the "where there's smoke, there's fire" syndrome.

As to the blue dress comment, I'll assume you were talking to Cruz.

Pitchfork and torch carrying mobs aren't courts of law, either, but that doesn't make them just arbiters of truth!


With regards to the mall:


5 lawyers and two cops just said that Roy Moore was BANNED from the local shopping mall because he was a serial stalker of teenage girls there.



"Last but not least, I was a Republican, a Reagan Republican. Still am. Not a Tea Party Republican. Not a Breitbart Republican. Not a talk radio or Fox News Republican. Not an isolationist, protectionist, immigrant-bashing, scapegoating, get-nothing-useful-done Republican. Not, as I am often dismissed by self-declared "real" conservatives, a RINO, Republican in Name Only. I'm a Reagan Republican, a proponent of lower taxes, less government, free markets, free trade, defense readiness, and democratic internationalism."

Something the actual management, and the mall cop, would not substantiate.

Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

Yes it does... That someone's daddy or brother didn't kick the living crap out of him back in the day certainly defies belief.

Look at the way these gap-toothed hicks are reacting in Alabama.  The girl's daddy likely would have kicked HER ass.  Roy was a DA back then, you know, and he threatened Nelson with that.
