They did not come out. The reporters started hearing stories locally known. The reporters tracked down the original woman (Republicans, I believe) and the rest came out. Moore was a powerful man at the local level and the woman were all afraid. Locals knew he had a thing about going after young girls and they let it be known.

Moore is a pedophile.

Trump admitted, if he was even admitting rather than just engaging in locker room bragging, that women let him do what he bragged about. That is totally different than assaulting someone.

"Yeah, thatís her, with the gold. Iíve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know Iím automatically attracted to beautiful ó I just start kissing them. Itís like a magnet. I just kiss. I donít even wait. And when youíre a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."

So just grabbing and kissing without even waiting for their approval is not assault? I must have the wrong dictionary. I'm still shaking my head that people elected such a vile human being as president. Sorry, no, he doesn't get a pass and neither do others who act this way.

Sorry, if they let you do it, its not assault. How is it assault if you let someone do something?

When a woman says, 'He looked at me and made me feel uncomfortable,' that is very different from 'He dropped his pants and jerked off into granny's geranium.'

He said, she said isn't circumstantial.

I believe there should be no limit on false paternity cases, which are rarely treated seriously unless it helps rule in favor of the woman.

How on earth can an unwelcome gesture from twenty years ago still be traumatizing to someone but if you produce proof of a false paternity case which results in financial hardship, legal trouble, and family drama, not to mention mess up a child's life, but it's "beyond the statute of limitations," the man is screwed?

Actually, I believe that a man's attractiveness determines whether or not he gets a pass.

Have Fred Armisen and Tom Brady make the same sexual advances in the workplace and see if they're treated the same.

How do we know the women Trump bragged about let him do this to them. And why would his disgusting behavior even be locker room talk. My husband would never have a conversation like this because he respects women, unlike Trump. Does you spouse talk like this?
