Breitbart.com editor-at-large Joel Pollack told MSNBC’s Ali Velshi on Thursday that the real scandal around U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore is The Washington Post used the word “teenagers” to describe the then-14, 16 and 18-year-old girls accusing Moore of sexual advances.
The 16-year-old and 18-year-old girls, Pollack said, were legally at the age of consent in Alabama when 32-year-old Moore attempted to have sex with them, encounters which Pollack described as “legitimate relationships.”
“When you read the article, there are several cases mentioned and of those cases, only one would be legally problematic,” said Pollack. “All of the others were legal relationships with women who were of age at the time when Roy Moore was single.”
While it is true that the age of legal consent for sexual activity in Alabama is 16, The Washington Post was not inaccurate in calling 16 and 18-year-old girls “teenagers” in that it is generally understood that one is still a teen when their numeric age includes the word “teen” at the end — as in “sixteen” and “eighteen.”

‘Getting the truth is irrelevant!’ Rick Santorum goes down in flames trying to defend Trump on CNN
Trump defender Rick Santorum went down in flames during a CNN debate on Wednesday that culminated in him admitting that the truth about President Donald Trump's attempt to extort the Ukrainian government really doesn't matter.
During a feisty debate with Democratic strategist Paul Begala, Santorum said that it would be a waste of time to call witnesses such as former national security adviser John Bolton because it would not change the fact that Trump is getting acquitted by the Republican-majority Senate.
Lev Parnas’ lawyer ties Lindsey Graham to corrupt Ukraine scheme
Rudy Giuliani delivered a letter in late 2018 to Sen. Lindsey Graham calling for sanctions on Ukrainian government officials, including a corruption reformer and another who ran the company whose board Hunter Biden served on.
The attorney for indicted Giuliani henchman Lev Parnas showed the letter to The Daily Beast, which reported the document described the Ukrainian politicians and business leaders as an "organized crime syndicate" -- and misspelled the GOP senator's name as "Lingsey."
