Ryan: Allegations Against Moore Are 'Credible' And He Should Withdraw

Source: Talking Points Memo




By ESME CRIBB Published NOVEMBER 14, 2017 10:38 AM

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Tuesday said allegations of sexual misconduct against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore are “credible,” and he called on Moore to step down from the race.

“He should step aside,” Ryan said at a press conference with House Republican leaders. “Number one, these allegations are credible. Number two, if he cares about the values and the people he claims to care about, then he should step aside.”

Four women last week accused Moore of sexually pursuing them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s. One woman, Leigh Corfman, said Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 years old.

A fifth woman on Monday alleged that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old. Beverly Young Nelson said Moore attempted to force her to have sex with him, and said she thought he was going to rape her.

1. These guys saying he should 'step aside' are just covering their own asses.

They couldn't care less about what Moore actually did..

2. This is actually a step up for Ryan

I expected him to say that was too busy getting his tax cut to worry about trifles like child molestation.

3. Yes, you know there had to be a secret meeting

with the Koch's and Mercers of the world for him to actually take such a "heroic" stand.

4. If Moore wins he will be a strong Republican enemy

Maybe he'll vote down everything Republicans want.

6. I think this will have the opposite effect in this election.

The more they start piling on and stating that the pedophile should withdraw, the more and more entrenched his voters will become (and let's face it, that's the majority of the Alabama population who would rather be flayed than ever vote for a Democrat). Why else would they begin to do this? it's too late to replace him on the ballot. It's more likely they've got internal polls that actually show the more they say "pull out", the stronger his support gets. They haven't all suddenly en masse grown a conscience.
