Viral #MeAt14 Hashtag Illustrates Why the Roy Moore Sex Allegations Are so Disgusting

By Risa Weber

Alabama politician Roy Moore has been accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14 year old girl when he was 32 years old. A Washington Post Expose reported that three other women were also lured into dating Moore when they were between the ages of 16 and 18. While they thought dating an older man was an intriguing idea at the time, they later realized how wrong it was for him to want to be involved with someone so young. Leigh Corfman said that Moore kissed her, removed her shirt and pants, and touched her inappropriately. She told the Washington Post, "I wanted it over with — I wanted out..." She remembered thinking, "Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over." Moore has denied these allegations. Other Republican senators have both dismissed the accusations as lies stemming from the Democratic party or gone so far as to try and justify a sexual relationship between a fourteen-year-old and a 32-year old. Co-creator of the Daily Show started the hashtag #MeAt14 to illustrate that a 14-year-old is nowhere near ready to consent to a sexual relationship, let alone one with a 32-year-old.
