His chances are very good. This is Alabama after all.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

I think Alabama is one of those redneck states where quips like this are common:
"Q: What does an Alabaman call his wife in private?
A: Sis."

His chances are excellent. Alabamians love him.

Probably none. Everyone is guilty unless proven innocent nowadays and even if you are proven innocent, you will never recover from it. The Internet, as wonderful as it is, is now a tool used to ruin people's lives.
It's fucking pathetic that this has become a partisan issue, with dems attacking someone with no evidence and repubs defending someone without even considering that he could be guilty.

He already lost the PR battle. The legal battle has yet to be fought.

I don't think republicans will change their vote. I think they'd rather have a republican in congress instead of a democrat.

It’s Alabama. Apparently pedophilia is okay as long as its heterosexual.

Only if you hide behind the Bible.

Again.
How many more times do I have to point out that pedophilia is sexual attraction to PREpubescent children?

I'm not saying IF the allegations are true that it's okay, especially not if the claims of the woman are also true (about feeling bad later, possibly traumatized), but IT. IS. NOT. PEDOPHILIA. Period 😊

The correct term is ephebophile

Because that’s the salient point here?

No, but when start changing the definition of words to fit a narrative or to further malign an issue, it leads to a slippery slope.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

It also imo distracts from what I see as the main issue here: not sexual perversion as such but exploitative and manipulative behavior.

I think his attackers have overplayed their hand. It’s just getting silly at this point.

I just saw his defense on Twitter and decided to believe him and support him with all the good words I have so what can possibly go wrong? 😁

Even though there is no evidence, the Dems are just ruining his campaign

When I’m listening to Evangelical Christians calling for him to step down, you can’t summarily blame Democrats.

One can only assume that those are some pretty gullible evangelical Christians.

True, but there is a good chance it's them to blame

I believe Moore can make a case until the recent accuser is willing to release the yearbook to an independent party
