The Washington Post reported that Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat, engaged in a sexual relationship with a minor in 1979 when she was 14 and he was 32. Politicians’ responses have been varied — many called on Moore to drop out of the race if the allegations proved to be true. One man invoked the Bible and made the claim that Joseph and Mary had quite the age difference, even though there is no proof of this and according to the Bible, Jesus was immaculately conceived (a.k.a. there was no sexual activity, unlike in the instance of Roy Moore and that little girl).
To add crazy to the crazy pile, Ann Coulter ran to Moore’s defense with what proved to be an ill-advised tweet comparing him to JFK. People really need to stop comparing Republican politicians to JFK. It never works out for them.
