There is no better proof than the tawdry Roy Moore story. Despite the testimony of the victim who has accused Moore of engaging in sexually predatory behavior with her — when she was 14 and he was 32 and an assistant district attorney, no less — many Republicans still support him. They claim that hers is a mere allegation until proven true, as if there was a way to time-travel back to do a DNA test or convene a grand jury. As often happens in crimes against women, the victim is being blamed. Moore purports that she is participating in a Democratic hatchet job, regardless of her Republican Party affiliation, her 2016 vote for Trump and the supporting reports from other teen-aged women that Moore once tried to date them, plying one with cheap wine. This behavior was once condemned as pedophilia, but Alabama Bible Belt voters want to cut Moore some slack so that the GOP can hold onto a senate seat.
