Clearly Roy Moore has a penchant for younger women. He was 38 when he married his 24 year old bride. It's consistent with the age spread in the girls he "dated." Extremely consistent, in fact.

When Roy Moore was 32, he would have dated a 15 year old - and that's around the age of these four women from the WaPo article.

Given that it was 1979, and Alabama, most people living there would have considered the age spread as normal, probably.

I found this after writing the above:

Quote:
Moore was the only vote in favor of a day care worker who raped a 12-year-old, claiming there was no ‘implied threat of serious physical injury’.

In 2015, while Moore was serving on the Alabama Supreme Court, he considered the case of Eric Lemont Higdon, a 17-year-old, who was convicted of raping a 12-year-old at a daycare center. Higdon was found guilty under a sodomy statute that applied specifically to minors, as well another statute prohibiting rape. The second conviction was overturned by an appeals court and sent to the state supreme court for review.

Eight justices found that the 12-year-old’s fear of harm from a much older and larger individual was enough to establish “implied threat of serious physical injury” and reinstated Higdon’s conviction. Moore was the only dissent, saying that there was “no evidence in this case of an implied threat of serious physical injury.”

Yeah...Roy Moore dated teenagers. Hmm

Boy! Ol' Roy sure got the liberals all a-riled up! Ye-Haw!

They so dumb they think we all care about who Roy dated or didn't date - Roy is one of us and that's that. Roy ain't done nothing unusual or anything. He had the mother's permission. That's all that matters, i'tn't?

Do y'all suppose Roy said to himself after work, when he was 32, "I think I'll mosey on over to the high school and find me a gal that I can relate to who's on my level."

Or did he think, "I'd like me some o' that teenage booty!"

I think he fell for the Christian mythology of the time: There are bad girls (who are not virgins), and there are good girls (who are). You should only be with girls who are, and in Alabama that's any 16 year old who can run faster than her cousins or brothers.

Got to make sure there is no father in the picture because they have a tendency to castrate or shoot any 30 year old messing with their daughter. That's why he said: "As long as you have her mother's permission, it's okay." If you can find a single mom who sees her daughter as competition, that's perfect. She will be very happy to marry off her daughter ASAP and get her out of the house.
