Will the Republican Party Fail Another Roy Moore Test?

Moore, then thirty-two, targeted one girl, Leigh Corfman, when she was fourteen years old and sitting outside a courtroom where her parents, who were in the process of divorcing, were having a custody hearing. Her mother was sitting with her when Moore, who was then an assistant district attorney, with an office down the hall, first approached; he offered to watch Leigh while her mother went before the judge, presenting himself, an officer of the court, as a respectable momentary guardian. “He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’

.. because even a molesting Republican was better than a Democrat

.. because they weren’t really sure that it was bad for a man in his thirties to be sexually propositioning teen-agers.
