-

Well-known defender of sexual abuse victims, attorney Gloria Allred, is representing another woman that Republican Roy Moore sexually abused. It was just the beginning.

A second Alabama woman has come forward, alleging that Moore also sexually molested her when she was a minor.

Allred’s brief press release said, according to The Washington Examiner:

‘An Alabama woman who alleges that Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a minor in Alabama. The new accuser wishes to state what she alleges Roy Moore did to her without her consent.’

The Republican judge has been running closely in tandem with the Democratic senate candidate in the very red state of Alabama, Doug Jones.

It is too late to take Moore’s name off of the ballot for the special election, and he refused to step down.

The Republican party’s only hope for a win is that voters would write in Republican Luther Strange’s name on December 12.

After The Washington Post reported that Judge Moore molested a 14-year-old girl when he was 32, three other women said that Moore tried to date them when they were between 16 to 18-years-old.

Moore’s weak excuses have included forgetfulness and questioning why the women did not come forward earlier. The answer to that is they would face the Republican right’s barrage of criticism.

Allred has also represented alleged sexual victims of Donald Trump, Bill Cosby, and producer Harvey Weinstein.

Attorney Allred has scheduled her press conference for 2:30 p.m. (EST) Monday at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan.

Although Majority Leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky did not call for Moore to withdraw initially, he just came out with a change of mind.

McConnell held a news conference in Louisville, and according to The New York Times, he said that Moore “should step aside.” He also said that he believed the women who accused the judge of sexual misconduct when they were still in their teens:

‘I believe the women, yes.’

Moore’s preference for sexual misconduct has been reflected in his court decisions. As judge, he cast the only vote favoring a man who raped a four-year-old boy, according to Law And Crime.

During his second term on the Alabama Supreme Court, Moore heard the case of Eric Lemont Higdon. The man sexually assaulted the little boy at Mama’s Place Christian Academy in Clay, Alabama in 2015.

The man was charged with and convicted of first-degree sodomy on a child under the age of 12-years-old. The second conviction was for statutory (forcible) rape.

Higdon appealed the forcible rape charge, and the court overturned it. Then, eight out of the nine Supreme Court justices found the appeals court had made a mistake.

That error revolved around whether a 17-year-old’s sexual assault on a four-year-old caused the child to fear an “implied threat of serious physical injury.” As a result, the court reversed the appeal’s decision and reinstated Higdon’s guilty conviction.

Moore was the lone dissenter. According to Law And Crime, he wrote in his dissenting opinion:

‘Because there was no evidence in this case of an implied threat of serious physical injury…or of an implied threat of death, Higdon cannot be convicted of sodomy in the first degree “by forcible compulsion.”’

When Moore ignored a federal court order that he remove a Ten Commandments monument, which he had placed in the state judicial building, he was removed from office.
