Liberals used Al Franken to discredit Roy Moore

The truth shall set you free. The big news is that court documents have exonerated Judge Roy Moore. Records punch holes in the story that he did anything untoward Leigh Corfman when she was 14 and he was 32.

But liberals knew this was the case, and so they have lumped Moore -- who is innocent -- with all those pervs who have confessed to preying on women.

The liberal argument is that because these men harassed women, then Moore must be guilty.

Of course, Moore is not guilty of anything.

Corfman said Moore met her outside a courtroom when he was an assistant district attorney in February 1979.

She said she gave him her mother's phone number and that he called her. They went out after that, she said.

The records show that could not happen.

From Aaron Klein:
A thorough search of court documents finds one court case in February 1979 — a case that took place on February 21, 1979.  The Post failed to tell readers that at that February 21, 1979, court case Wells voluntarily gave up custody of Corfman to Corfman’s father, Robert R. Corfman.  The two had been divorced since 1974.  The custody case was amicable and involved a joint petition by both parents.
The Post further did not tell readers that as a result of the joint petition to change custody, the court ordered the 14-year-old Corfman to move to her father’s house starting on March 4, 1979.  Court documents show the father’s address in Ohatchee, and not in Gadsden, where her mother lived and where Corfman says the meetings with Moore took place.
This would mean that from the court hearing on February 21, 1979, until Corfman was ordered to move to her father’s house, Moore would only have had 12 days, including the day of the court hearing, to have repeatedly called Corfman at her mother’s Gadsden house, arrange two meetings, and attempt another. Moore has strenuously denied the accusations.
While that timeline is theoretically possible, the Moore campaign stressed in a press conference today it is unlikely.
This was the second and biggest accusation proven to be untrue.

After the Washington Post story on Corfman, celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred held a press conference in which she produced Beverly Young Nelson, who said Moore signed her yearbook when she was a teenager and he was in his 30s.

The signature was later shown to be copied from a paper Moore signed as a judge when Nelson got divorced 25 years ago. The telltale sign was it read "Roy Moore/D.A."

The judge's signature was a rubber stamp. D.A. were the initials of the clerk verifying the authenticity of the signature in the court case. She wasn't there to verify the yearbook signing in 1977.

Allred has refused to allow anyone to authenticate the yearbook.

When the Corfman story broke, I wrote, "If the accusation is true that Roy Moore had sex with a 14-year-old in 1979 when he was 32, I condemn him."

It is not true.

Now I condemn Allred, Nelson, and Corfman. The police should investigate them for bearing false witness, and if the evidence warrants it, seek indictments for appropriate charges.

The way to stop witch hunts is to punish those who bear false witness.

But everyone knew Moore was guiltless. If he had done anything, this would have come out in his eight previous bids for public ofice.

These allegations are fake, which is why liberals are using these unrelated cases to try to confuse the issue.

And it led to this nonsense from Counterfeit Conservative John Podhoretz:
As the sex scandals continue their relentless forward march, early efforts at a course correction are beginning to emerge. Some of these efforts are necessary and involve making distinctions — distinctions between, say, felonious assault, which should lead to prison, and really gross workplace behavior, which should lead to serious disciplinary action but should probably fall short of complete ruination.
The danger, however, is that these distinctions get drawn in such a way that they protect one set of offenders and not the other — purely on the grounds that the protected set is made up of people you like or who work for the causes you champion and the bad guys are the people you don’t and who don’t.
These are the astonishing arguments now being made on behalf of senatorial candidate Roy Moore, on the one hand, and Sen. Al Franken, on the other.
Now, these two cases require exactly the kinds of distinctions I’m talking about. Moore is credibly accused of unspeakable behavior with a 14-year-old. Franken was caught on camera being a disgusting boor and has been accused of sticking his tongue in a woman’s mouth.
Moore’s alleged conduct was felonious and morally depraved. Franken appears to have acted like a repellent creep, which is bad but misdemeanor-bad. It seems important at a moment when a national narrative is galloping along at Secretariat speed to be able to separate the two.
Misdemeanor bad?

Is that like Whoopi Goldberg saying Roman Polanski didn't commit rape rape?

(He did. He drugged, raped and sodomized a 13-year-old girl.)

I should go easy on Podhoretz. Maybe a little sorry for him.

But being a phony conservative pays him well. He gets $400,000 a year to run his 33,000-circulation magazine that has 11 issues a year. That leaves him plenty of time to appear as a paid contributor on MSNBC, and to write newspaper columns.

However, that gig requires him to make bad arguments, such as because Franken is guilty of "misdemeanor bad," Moore is guilty of a felony. Podhoretz should be ashamed.

Thank God and the Constitution that we have trial by jury, and not trial by the media.

  1. The game is to cry for an 'Ethics Investigation'. What Al did. What Nancy said John Conyers was going to get.

    Judge Jeanine had a guest on Saturday night. He started laughing about the department that conducts Congressional ethics investigations. It seems that over a period of years (10-15?) they have conducted something like 260 "investigations". They have not found one person to be in violation of anything. They have not handed out punishment, nor recommended punishment. And if that's not enough, they have a backlog so it takes years before they start and complete the investigation. By which time the reps voters have long since forgotten the charges.

    The swamp is a money machine, good time sex party for members at the expense of American taxpayers. The Congressional Ethics office is made up of well paid people with no power that can continue to work as long as they pass out 'Get Out Of Jail Free' cards.

  2. Podhoretz can't help it. He and Franken are both Bolsheviks. He was bound to side with his fellow traveler.

  3. It seems to me that Allred has slandered Moore.

    1. When you see that Gloria Allred is involved, you know immediately that there is "Dirty Work" going on.

      How this sleazy woman keeps her law license is what should be "investigated".

  4. With about 6-8 weeks to go in the 2016 election, I read a tweet that had a link to an Ann Coultar article. In it, she discussed David Brock's latest dirty trick campaign. His organization was openly offering money to any woman coming forward that would make a sexual harassment charge against candidate Trump. Then with a month or so left before the election – as we see with Judge Moore – an avalanche of accusers suddenly materialized.

    The commonality of all the sexual harassment charges is this – the people accusing Judge Moore and President Trump do not have a pot to pizz in. They have menial jobs, if any, as well as a checkered history with men and sometimes alcohol / drugs. In short, they are prime candidates to be coached and bought off. On the other hand, the accusers of the Hollywood people, media people, and Congressional people all had the skills to be employed in the discipline. Most now have solid marriages. They were harassed by perverts that abused their positions, as the pervs had the power to see that they “never work in this town again”.

    Follow the money.

  5. As soon as the Frickin Franken claims came out, I called it as a means to slander Moore. It has been all that, and a good means to distract from the Moore accusations falling flat.
    As for the allegations about him being banned from the mall, the former manager has spoken out about that. Lies again.

  6. I am really wondering if the good voters there in Alabama will even hear about the latest Corfman info, or the fact that the yearbook handwriting isn't Roy Moore's. The media has studiously ignored anything that doesn't indict him.

  7. I hope Alabama voters are getting the truth. Heaven knows they won't get it from the LSM.

  8. Good job Don in withholding judgement on Moore until the real facts came out.

    As for Podhoretz, what a maroon.

  9. "Liberals used Al Franken to discredit Roy Moore."

    How's that working out? It's pretty obvious that the Democrat Party isn't filled with rocket scientists. - Elric

  10. P{odhoretz has endorsed this standars whether he admits it or not.

    "I'm actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations."

    "Sorry. If some innocent men's reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay."
