A journalist at the Alabama Political Reporter tweeted this:
As you know, Roy Moore’s best and only defense to the allegations of molestation and assault has been to ask why did the accusers wait so long to come forward, and then accuse them of promulgating fake news. The lawyer for one of the accusers addressed that issue. ABC News:
And the lawyer for a woman who says Moore dated her when she was 18 and he was in his 30s and supplied her with alcohol before she was of legal drinking age responded later Saturday to the candidate's comments. Paula Cobia, lawyer for Gloria Deason, blasted Moore for making what she called "defamatory statements" about "4 brave women."
"He knows full well why these women did not tell what he did to them before this week," Cobia wrote in a statement posted on Facebook on Saturday. "As young teenage girls in the late 1970s in a small, rural southern town, they had no way of knowing their rights, especially against him considering that he was a district attorney at the time."
Roy Moore clearly has a history of abuse of power. His actions when State Supreme Court judge indicate a flagrant disregard for the rule of law as well, not to mention the Constitution. This man is dangerous. He doesn’t belong in the United States Senate.
