Roy Moore Exonerated Because One of Sex Assault Victims Has Troubled Past
Don’t waste your time here.
Alabama Republican Senate candidate / unadjudicated sexual predator Roy Moore demonstrating his groping technique to enthusiastic supporters.
The “NEW EVIDENCE” purportedly proving that one of Moore’s many accusers, Tina Johnson, is lying about having been ass-grabbed by the self-styled paragon of Christian values consists of old information that (1) at the time of the alleged assault, which occurred in 1991, Moore was representing Johnson’s mother in a contentious legal battle for custody of Johnson’s son, and (2) in the custody proceeding, Johnson’s mother claimed that Johnson was an unfit parent who had received psychiatric treatment when she was fifteen. Somehow this leads Proud Conservative to conclude that Johnson decided to make a false claim about Moore over 25 years later and thereby subject herself to a fusillade of ugly personal attacks for no apparent benefit other than the thrill of being interviewed by Erin Burnett.
► Nothing about this story is “official.” No court has made any finding about Johnson’s veracity or has “released” any evidence pertaining to her claim. The circumstances surrounding Johnson’s child custody dispute and the self-serving allegations made by her estranged mother are simply included in court records dug up by conservative media outlets attempting to defend Moore.
► The court records in no way prove that Johnson is lying about what Moore did to her. If anything, they establish that Johnson came into direct contact with Moore, whose office Johnson had to visit in order to sign legal papers settling the custody dispute with her mother. This may be all that prevented Moore from denying that he ever knew Johnson, as he’s done with some of his other accusers.
► Johnson is just one of several women who have made accusations of sexual misconduct against Moore, and her claim appears to be the least incendiary of the group.
► Roy Moore also hates gays and misses slavery. Hooray!
