A recent wave of victims coming forward to publicly recount incidences of sexual assault they have experienced, including at the hands of very famous and powerful men, have flooded the news. Louis C.K. was fired from a movie that had already been filmed and his upcoming Netflix comedy special was cancelled. Harvey Weinstein was forced out of his production company and had awards granted by his alma mater taken away. Kevin Spacey was fired from his Netflix show, House of Cards.

Roy Moore is poised to become a U.S. senator.

While other abusers are becoming pariahs (exactly as they should be), Moore is being defended by his closest supporters and being invited on Sean Hannity’s show.

‘These allegations are completely false and misleading…Nobody that abuses a 14-year-old at age 32 or at age 17, it doesn’t matter, if you abuse a 14-year-old you shouldn’t be a Senate candidate. I agree with that. But I did not do that.’

At other points in the interview, Moore’s defense became somewhat murky. He insisted that he had “never dated a girl without her mother’s permission,” which is not exactly a denial of dating very young girls as an adult. When nudged by Hannity, Moore took quite some time to say that the allegations had no truth to them at all.

At a time when these allegations threaten his political campaign, a time when his supporters are posting wild conspiracy theories about his youngest accuser, a woman who says she was assaulted by Moore at just 14 years old, Moore gave those theories fuel without showing any evidence of anything.

‘We are also doing an investigation and we have some evidence of some collusion here but we’re not ready to bring that to the public just yet.’

It seems a political candidate in Moore’s position would want to get any proof of his innocence out to the public immediately, but this is no normal candidate and his supporters are ready to create false theories of their own.

In one conspiracy theory quickly growing in popularity, the accuser is a political operative who translated in sign language for the hearing impaired during the Hillary Clinton campaign. She has also worked on the campaign for Moore’s political opponent, Doug Jones, and cozied up to Joe Biden.

These theories are based solely on a photo that absolutely no one with any credibility has verified is of the accuser.

Still others pulled the infamous Trump “what about ism” that has become so popular among the current administration whenever faced with a tough question.

Hannity was forced to apologize for his defense of Moore on Thursday’s show in which he stated that if Moore did have sexual encounters with a 14-year-old, they were “consensual” and perfectly acceptable. Is it any wonder then that Moore chose Hannity’s show to present his defense?

Meanwhile, lawmakers actually faced with serving next to an accused pedophile have spent the day speaking out and distancing themselves from the quickly-sinking homophobe who waved a gun at political rallies.

While Moore continues to defend himself against accusers, the same supporters who fully embraced the story that Hillary Clinton ran a child sex ring out of a pizza shop basement (which had no basement), demanded that everyone wait for hard evidence of a crime that happened decades ago.

The voices of the four victims, as well as their 30 corroborating witnesses, are still not proof enough.
