We haven’t weighed in on Judge Moore, but according to recent media reports, the Judge has an existential problem. No man is an island unto himself and the Judge is no exception. In the broad context of doing the right thing, no matter how hard you deny or defend your reputation, a smoking gun in hand is reason to accept the overall consensus, which is to pull out of the race for the good of the party.
Although social norms in Alabama thirty plus years ago may have been at odds with the United States as a whole, reconstructing those events to fit today’s values is all but impossible. But keep in mind that allegations are just that until proven. So we give the Judge the benefit of the doubt. However, the longer this movie plays the worse it gets. Do the right thing Judge, drop out now before it is too late.
