Roy Moore Is Accused of Sexual Misconduct by a Fifth Woman

By Jonathan Martin and Sheryl Gay Stolberg

An Alabama woman accused Roy S. Moore on Monday of sexually assaulting her when she was 16, the fifth and most brutal charge leveled against the Republican Senate candidate. Senate Republicans are now openly discussing not seating him or expelling him if he wins the Dec. 12 special election.

The new accuser, Beverly Young Nelson, told a packed news conference in New York that Mr. Moore attacked her when she was a teenager and he was a prosecutor in Etowah County, Ala. Ms. Nelson was represented at the news conference by Gloria Allred, a lawyer who has championed victims of sexual harassment.

“I tried fighting him off, while yelling at him to stop, but instead of stopping, he began squeezing my neck, attempting to force my head onto his crotch,” Ms. Nelson said, growing emotional as she described the assault, which she said happened one night after her shift ended at a local restaurant, where she was a waitress.

  1. Clearly these women who object, have not been “trained in their traditional obedient role” as Moore would wish them to be!

    Chinese authorities have shut down an institute that was teaching women to be obedient and subordinate to men.

    The education bureau said the institute, which claimed it taught “traditional virtues”, had violated socialist core values.

    An online video showed lecturers speaking out against gender equality, while other advice to women included not fighting back when being beaten.

    China has seen a rise in similar institutes in recent years.

    The viral video posted by news website Video Pear shows teachers at the Fushun School of Traditional Culture telling women they should not attempt to have a career but “just stay at the bottom level”.

    It urges women to unconditionally obey their fathers, husbands and sons.

    Other “advice” from the controversial school included never arguing when scolded and never divorcing.

    The teachers are also seen warning that if a woman has sex with more than three men, the semen becomes poisonous and might kill her.

    “Whatever your husband asks, your reply should be: ‘Yes. Right away'” one lecturer tells his students.

    The video showed women doing domestic housework such as cleaning the floor and cleaning toilets using bare hands.

    A post on the Weibo account of the local education bureau in Fushun said “the institute’s teachings went against social morality and must be closed immediately”.

    Authorities also urged a wider check to find similar institutes.

    “We must stop any phenomenon that violates the socialist core value,” the statement says.

    Moore and Trump will clearly urgently need to contradict these “socialist core values”! 🙂
