‘I’m in trig class’: Woman describes Roy Moore relentlessly pursuing her when she was 17 — and calling her at school

Published

on

Two more women have come forward with allegations that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore made aggressive, unwanted advances on them when they were many years younger than he was.

In a report by The Washington Post (who have since been the target of attacks from Moore and his supporters), Gena Richardson, then a 17-year-old employee at the Sears in the Gadsden Mall where the then-attorney was eventually banned, said the 30-year-old Moore asked her out more than once before she relented. Another woman, Becky Gray, said she was 22 in 1977 when Moore repeatedly asked her asked her out in ways that made her “uncomfortable.”

“I’d always say no, I’m dating someone, no, I’m in a relationship,” Gray, who worked in the men’s section of the Pizitz department store where Moore also allegedly picked up another of his teen “dates,” said. “I thought he was old at that time. Anyone over 22 was just old.”

Richardson also was the object of Moore’s persistence, and after she turned him down in the Sears where she worked, she was called to the principal’s office at school with a phone call from him.

“I said ‘Hello?’” Richardson told The Post. “And the male on the other line said, ‘Gena, this is Roy Moore.’ I was like, ‘What?!’ He said, ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘I’m in trig class.’”

She agreed to go out with him after his second attempt, and after they went to a movie on their single date, Richardson said Moore gave her an unwanted and “forceful” kiss that frightened her.

“I never wanted to see him again,” she said.

Richardson and Gray are now the eighth and ninth women to come forward with stories about various forms of misconduct from Moore, which range from groping and sexual assault to having relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was an assistant district attorney nearly twice their age.

New York Times battered on MSNBC for pushing smear of Hunter Biden in order to maintain access to Trump

Published

on

An "AM Joy" panel jumped all over the New York Times for pushing a widely debunked smear of Hunter Biden promoted by Donald Trump, saying the newspaper is more interested in maintaining their access to the Oval Office than debunking the lie.

Speaking with host Joy Reid -- who noted that her producers asked for comment from the Times but were rebuffed -- MSNBC regular Maria Teresa Kumar scorched the Times, as well as reporter Ken Vogel, for the uncritical parroting of the president's smear.

Ukrainian journalist throws down gauntlet after Giuliani smear: ‘I express my readiness to testify’

Published

on

A Ukrainian journalist said on Sunday that he would be willing to testify to Congress against President Donald Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani.

After Giuliani unleashed a bizarre rant on CNN accusing Democrats of trying to get help from Ukraine in the 2016 election, Ukrainian journalist Serhiy Leshchenko wrote an op-ed exposing the accusation as a lie.

In his op-ed, Leshchenko explains:

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the Manafort revelations would become fodder for the U.S. elections in 2020. President Trump’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, the mouthpiece of this campaign, is not only attempting to rehabilitate Manafort but is also working to undermine U.S. relations with Ukraine, which has been confronting Russian aggression on its own for more than five years. Giuliani and his associates are trying to drag our newly elected president, Volodymyr Zelensky, into a conflict between two foreign political parties, drastically limiting Ukraine’s room for maneuver in respect to the United States, perhaps its most important international partner.

Trump is openly colluding with Ukraine to smear Biden

Published

on

President Donald Trump is defending his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, one that recent media reports suggest may have been made in order to dig up dirt about one of Trump's likeliest and strongest opponents in the 2020 election, former Vice President Joe Biden.

This article first appeared on Salon.

"The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, want to stay as far away as possible from the Joe Biden demand that the Ukrainian Government fire a prosecutor who was investigating his son, or they won’t get a very large amount of U.S. money, so they fabricate a story about me and a perfectly fine and routine conversation I had with the new President of the Ukraine," Trump tweeted on Saturday. "Nothing was said that was in any way wrong, but Biden’s demand, on the other hand, was a complete and total disaster. The Fake News knows this but doesn’t want to report!"
