Let me ask you a hypothetical question.
A deputy district attorney tried to sexually assault you when you were a teenager. And twenty-two years later, when you are getting divorced, you walk into a courtroom and that same man is your judge.
Wouldn’t you say to your lawyer, “Hey, that guy tried to rape me when I was a teenager!”
I’m guessing you’d bring it up.
In fact, I’m thinking you would demand that this judge not hear your case because of it.
So ask yourself why the heck the accuser represented by Gloria Allred said nothing in 1999 when then-judge Roy Moore oversaw her divorce case.
When I read Judge Moore’s open letter to Sean Hannity last night, I was stunned when I got to this portion:
For instance, we have documented that the most recent accuser, Beverly Nelson, was a party in a divorce action before me in Etowah County Circuit Court in 1999. No motion was made for me to recuse. In her accusations, Nelson did not mention that I was the judge assigned to her divorce case in 1999, a matter that apparently caused her no distress at a time that was 18 years closer to the alleged assault. Yet 18 years later, while talking before the cameras about the supposed assault, she seemingly could not contain her emotions.
Odd how this slipped her mind.
This accuser can tearfully recount something that she said happened forty years ago.
But she doesn’t recall that Moore was the judge in her divorce 18 years ago?
Now this story is falling apart.
When the only thing out there was “the signatures don’t match,” I thought it was thin soup. After all, whose signature remains the same over forty years?
But then yesterday, I saw the photograph that clearly shows the yearbook inscription attributed to Roy Moore is written in two very different inks.
And that just doesn’t smell right at all.
And when you add to that the fact that Gloria Allred refused to answer Wolf Blitzer’s questions about the authenticity of this yearbook inscription?
Well, let’s just say that the credibility of this accuser is swirling the bowl.
It also helped Roy Moore immeasurably that the man who spoke on his behalf at yesterday’s press conference was able to clearly and succinctly lay out the problems with Beverly Nelson’s accusations.
Which, compared to the train wreck interview Trenton Garmon had on MSNBC yesterday, was a sorely needed.
Here’s the portion of the press conference where Moore’s attorney Phillip Jauregui discusses the problems with Nelson’s claims:
This is how you fight back against the Smear.
And let’s be honest. The points Jauregui makes are compelling.
Do I think Gloria Allred will release that yearbook for scrutiny?
Maybe when pigs fly.
Allred is a drive-by hack. She fires her shots then quickly speeds away before anyone can scrutinize the accusations made by her “clients.”
Which is probably because the accusations won’t hold up under closer scrutiny.
That’s how Allred works. She bluffs.
The objective was to smear Roy Moore and let the allegations alone derail him.
And for Allred’s bluff to work, Moore needs to give up without a fight and go away.
Well, he isn’t doing that. Instead, he’s calling her bluff.
Which, for Gloria Allred is bad news. Because all she does is bluff.
I’ve said before that if this line of attack derails Roy Moore you can trust that it will be a template used widely in 2018.
The only way to make sure this kind of irresponsible Smear job doesn’t get used again and again is to stand up, call their bluff and fight back smart.
If yesterday’s press conference showed me anything it’s that Roy Moore is doing just that.
Good for him.
