  2. Perhaps “In through the back door” should have appeared on a different page…or at least below the fold.

  3. Sheen likes that young mindless retarded look. I did too but at least I understood that you had to dispose of the body when finished.

  4. Great minds, Niall — I was thinking something similar and equally rude!

  5. Maybe the editors do it on purpose. Before the viral marketing, people aware of the Albert Lea Tribune was what, 3?

  6. Hey now, for non-urban Minnie-soda, Albert Lea is a pretty happening place (and the hometown of Richie Cunningham’s mother, IRL).

  7. Mr. Spacey and Mr. Sheen are hardly “Boy Scouts”, they barely qualify as human beings

  9. I was a boyscout. I’m Gay. It was never a problem. Did I miss something during that almost-decade of my life?

  11. rusty’s point, I believe (correct me if I’m wrong), is that the Boy Scouts have NEVER been a safe wholesome activity for boys.

    Lawsuits come and go. Some have validity, some do not. I suspect that this lawsuit has no validity.

    Why? Because in order to prove fraud, one has to prove that the organizations involved in the lawsuit KNEW that those involved were preying on the young boys. I suspect that will be the position of both the Boy Scouts and the LDS Church in this.

    However now? When they can no longer bar either gays or women? It isn’t my point that either group is more likely to abuse young boys, only that without those restrictions, dare they have any restrictions at all short of a criminal conviction?

    At that point, the plaintiff can claim that they were negligent in doing virtually no background checks.

    In other words, any abuse of boys (or girls!) at this point will likely leave them open to negligence lawsuits, and those lawsuits could prove fatal to the organization.

    But, honestly, at this point, the Boy Scouts have become irrelevant. They support nothing, they teach nothing. If it went away tomorrow, nobody would care.

  12. Also, I think the juxtaposition of the two headlines was precisely VtK’s point.

  13. Louis Ck now accused by 5 different women of sexual misconduct. Is anyone surprised by this?

  16. Mitt Romney ✔ @MittRomney
    Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.

  17. So, I guess Mitt Romney should have dropped out when Democrats accused him of giving a woman cancer. That charge was much too serious to ignore.

  18. The Republican Party’s Senate campaign wing on Friday severed its fundraising agreement with Roy Moore.

    Federal Election Commission paperwork filed on Friday showed that the National Republican Senatorial Committee is no longer listed as part of a joint fundraising committee with Moore’s campaign, the Alabama Republican Party, and the Republican National Committee. The other three entities remain in the contract, as of Friday afternoon.

  19. Another facet to Roy Moore

    In 2005, during an interview on CSPAN with political commentator Bill Press, Moore stated that he believes “homosexual conduct” should be illegal in the United States.

    He tried to take legal action on that belief when he was elected to be the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court again in 2012.

    When the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, Moore tried to stop it from including Alabama.

    In defiance of the ruling, Moore –- who had already been battling a U.S. District Court that ruled the state’s marriage laws unconstitutional –- ordered Alabama’s probate judges to continue enforcing the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

    In September of 2016, after numerous ethics complaints, the Alabama Judicial Inquiry Commission found Moore guilty of six ethics charges in connection with his refusal to comply with “binding federal law,” and he was suspended for the remainder of his term on the Alabama Supreme Court.

  20. I don’t see what the problem with Roy Moore ignoring Federal law. The left has been telling us for years now it’s perfectly OK to do so. I mean how many states and localities are flaunting their defiance of Federal Immigration law? How about drug laws regarding marijuana? Hmm?

    Since the left is so keen on setting moral standards, they should be proud of Roy “resisting” right?

    BTW, Rusty – I would stand back and wait to see how this plays out before doing some kind of victory dance. While the establishment runs in fear, the new right are furiously working away to determine whether or not this is legit and flesh out the real story. The Washington Post has already blown stories or outright lied, so they’re not to be believed off-hand.

    On the one hand, Moore is one of those guys that is hard-core Christian. Through my experience in the Catholic Church and growing up watching the televangelists, it doesn’t seem far fetched he could have been using it as a cover.

    On the other hand, the eGOP was falling all over themselves within moments to denounce him it may appear to voters to be a coordinated attack. That could anger voters even more.

    If he did what was alleged to the girl when she was under-aged, then yes, he should step down and be denounced.

    We’ll know for sure in a few days.

  21. What is interesting is DJT was out stumping for Luther Strange

  22. Anyone curious as to whyrusty has been so quiet recently and then suddenly shows up on this point? As if he has something over on us? Trying to get conservatives to bow to you, rusty? Moore probably is guilty, but it seems like everyone in the world is being accused of something related to sexual misconduct right now. No one is presenting evidence for or against any of it. It’s just all being reported. Who is telling the truth and who is not? I just find it hard to trust ANYONE without knowing them anymore, especially anyone in the press.

  23. Hi Rusty,

    Thank you for sharing. After the personal experience I reflected on here at GP about two weeks ago, I’m not sure why politics is even an element anymore in people’s minds. It’s a matter of decency, considering thirty-some-odd people have corroborated the four stories with second-hand accounts during the time the accusatory assaults took place. Moore’s reaction was also instructional. It doesn’t matter if they’re “Hollywood,” “Republican,” “Democrat,” I don’t care what the label. Sexual assault is sexual assault and we all need to unite, stand up, and stop drawing lines in the sand or being quiet. This shouldn’t be about pointing the finger at the person “on the other side” of the political divide. this should be about pointing the finger at sexual predators and saying, “No, I do not stand for this, period.” Weinstein, Spacey, Moore … No, I do not stand for this. Period.

    Cheers,
    CCP

  24. Hollywood and Politics both require a distinctive personality type to succeed; vain, ambitious to the point of obsession, outwardly gregarious, sociopathic to a degree. These same personality traits lend themselves well to being sexual predators as well. Add to the mix that both are cultures where, once you have accumulated sufficient success, no one will hold you accountable for your actions and… actually, many of your fellow sociopaths will support you in order to achieve their own ambitions and what you have is a hothouse environment for sexual misbehavior.

  25. Hollywood and Politics both require a distinctive personality type to succeed […]

    Excellently well put. Put that in your clip file for future use!

  26. 2.Perhaps “In through the back door”

    The other complete story involves tagging 3 guys with drugs in the park.

    Comment by Steve — November 11, 2017 @ 12:41 pm - November 11, 2017

  27. Hi V the K,

    It’s pretty simple IMO.

    1) Read the Washington Post article
    2) Listen to the Sean Hannity interview
    3) Let go of your conspiracy theory delusions which make you question the veracity of the story, because of the fact that, YES, this is conveniently timed (so what? Would you believe it more had it come out in 2008 or 2018?)
    4) And, repeat after me, “Roy Moore is a pig. I believe the girls. And the GOP needs to take a hardline and kick him out.”

    This is what decency looks like. This is what it looks like to be consistent when slagging “the other side.”

    Try it some time.

    Cheers,
    CCP
