Actually, I don't think anyone should be punished on the basis of accusations only.

Kind of a slippery slope to say the least.

But you can't keep employers or the public from basing their actions or opinions on accusations alone.

Personally I think anyone who falsely accuses someone of a crime should be punished with the maximum sentence of the crime they accused them of.
In the case of Trump, he admitted on tape that he has no problem sexually assaulting women and his supporters remain behind him. If Iím Moore, Iím not going anywhere. For those that say otherwise, my retort is simple in that Trump needs to set the example first and resign.

For example, if a rape charge carries 5-10 years, then the person who falsely accused a person and can be proven, then he/she should be put away for 5-10 years. In some countries like in Korea, false accusation carry some legal repercussion.
there are laws about filing false accusations, unfortunately they are rarely prosecuted. in the end however it doesnt matter how many laws we make in this area, the damage is still done, and persons reputation has been ruined.

very true. once again i remind people to be careful what you ask for, you might just get it.

That's right. This effort to overturn an election is what should worry people.

You asking trump supporters if Moore should step down lol. They voted for Trump after he said to grab women by the genitals is okay because when you're famous they let you do it. So, of course, those supporters don't think Moore should step down.

I find it pathetic that McConnell and Ryan want Moore out (when not even formally charged yet and likely never will be) whereas Durbin, Schumer, and Pelosi seem fine with Menendez being in the Senate even while formally charged and on trial with far more solid evidence than there is against Moore. (Of course, this follows the pattern of all the "evidence" against Trump on Russia, while all the evidence against Hillary on Russia is ignored (by both parties I'll admit)).

When a woman lets a man grab her genitals it's called foreplay, or in this case, using her ***** to grab a billionaire.

Not really a Trump supporter but I am anti-Democrat after the wars and lies during the last Administration, and Hillary's attempted take over. That being said Moore has enough people coming forward that they are believable. I would say he should step down. Don't be like the Dems that defended Wiener to the end

Edit. Just saw where one of the key pieces of evidence, Moore's signature in the year book, could a poorly done fake, I'll withhold my judgement until it goes to court.
