    You said this:

    I'm I to understand that you now retract this?

    It looks like you're trying to tweak what you already posted. I think there is no requirement to wait for a court case when looking at ethical behavior of someone running for public office.

    No, it was necessary to point out your use of a red herring. That "gibberish" was showing you the faulty argument you were attempting to make.

    I'd be thankful if you'd understand that I didn't even post that. Your quote is from SBC (post #10), not me. ^_^

    The RNC has no political influence over Al.

    The women who have made public charges against him means nothing until they decide to pursue their claims in a legal manner. If the photo of him with his hand on one of the women is true, and not photo-shopped, (which photo-shopping CAN be proven), and she decides to pursue the case, that is her business, albeit, it is obvious it was not pursued in a timely manner.

    Here's the deal. You can vote for whomever you choose to vote for.
    You want to believe newspapers on unproven ethical "reasons" ie "grounds", that's your business, however you might want to go beyond the splashy headlines, and discover, much of what people call and present as "NEWS", is clearly stated on the articles are "opinions", sort of an old rendition of modern day blogs, where as anyone can spout off what they feel like, whether it be true or not.

    As far as ethical behavior ~ that is the people's business to find out if it is true, before casting a vote.
    As far as a sitting representative's ethical behavior ~ ha, there are two choices IF anything at all is done. 1) is a tongue lashing 2) or they can be booted out. And how convenient, it is their fellow Congressmen who get to do the deciding.....the ones who do the very same behavior. lol

    If there is no legal charge and court procedure, exactly where do you have any evidence of guilt?
    A reporters opinion? An allegation?

    Then provide evidence his behavior was unethical.

    "decent people, of course they won't vote for Moore" <----huh?

    For this man.. I know looked into some of this. Two are very questionable. And when something comes down to just "he said she said". Never going to take just ONE persons story. You have to look at ALL. The timing of this is just to perfect.

    And Franken.. though the man is NOT for Trump.. he was and always will be a comedian. And has said some really awful jokes. Come on.. lets be true here. We would have to ask 90% of ALL men and women to step down. That right there..what about all the women that said did things to some guy? And.. again its silly. Hillary? Hello? So.. there asking people to STEP DOWN.. for what? Ok.. ok.. and Hillary? Its a joke..for me as I see it

    I think it's too soon to say that nothing happened to Al Franken, and Mr. Conyers resigned from the House today.

    It’s depressing to see this kind of superficial thinking on here. I’d challenge anyone to read through all of the evidence put forward, all of it and not just some dismissal of it in some low quality Breitbart type rag, and still conclude there’s nothing to it. All of it including the accounts of the women involved, the managers of stores and colleagues where young women were employed who would warn their female staff about Moore trawling those stores for young girls, the security staff in the malls those shops were in etc etc. Do you really not have any idea at all why a young girl in the 1970s, in a notoriously male dominated and hypocritical ‘religious’ part of the states might find it difficult to speak up against an older guy who was preying on them? Really, you don’t get that? Remember also that those women are not guilty of deceit until proven so either.

    I sure am sorry that you had such difficulty comprehending my post, which really ought to have been very simple for you to understand, that you came to that hilariously wrong conclusion. I fully comprehend that they're not one and the same, but both disgracefully endorsed Roy Moore. It's a downright shame.

    I didn't bother reading the rest of your post, as it was clear from how badly you botched things this early on that it would be a waste of time.

    I would suggest voting based on issues, and letting the courts address alleged indiscretions in a candidate's personal life...

    Uh ~ what a unwittingly fascinating post!

    Why do I need to REMEMBER, those women are not guilty?

    Do you NOT GET? WHO here is claiming those women ARE GUILTY!

    Do you NOT GET, you just said.... "those women are not guilty of deceit until proven so EITHER?"

    "EITHER" compared to WHO? Moore!
    "PROVEN" as like WHO? Moore!

    Do you NOT GET, you are on the band wagon of declaring Moore GUILTY, without proof!

    Do you NOT GET, he said, she said, they said......IS NOT LEGAL PROOF!

    It is hearsay, allegations, gossip, opinions ~

    If their hearsay, allegations, gossip, opinions ARE TRUE.....THEY can take their hearsay, allegations, gossip, opinions IN TO A COURT OF LAW and STATE THEM "UNDER OATH"!

    THEN 'EITHER' party, will have THEIR WORDS "SAID", with THEIR EVIDENCE, and a "JURY" can decided what is "PROVEN" to BE TRUE!



    Challenge away ~
    THEN provide the TITLE " of WHO vs WHO"
    and
    the "CASE NUMBER" of "WHO vs WHO"
    so
    ANYONE can ALSO read (like you apparently have_
    "all the evidence"
    and
    ALSO
    "the VERDICT" !

    Thanks for the funny post.
    God Bless,

    That's nice, you do know, the President and the RNC are not the same thing.

    Neither is the time-line of their support of Moore,
    which you apparently missed was the point, and CLEARLY stated.

    SHAMEFUL ~is attempting to TRY a PERSON in the gossip columns instead of a COURT ROOM.

    SHAMEFUL ~is saying it's a SHAME, to NOT CONVICT a person, when PROOF has not be revealed!

    No problem. I do not have a high expectation of Liberals reading or comprehension.

    1. Americans read headlines. And not much else. - The Washington...
      www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2014/03/19/am...
      Mar 19, 2014 ... So, roughly six in 10 people acknowledge that they have done nothing more than read news headlines in the past week. And, in truth, that number is almost certainly higher than that, since plenty of people won't want to admit to just being headline-gazers but, in fact, are. Here's that breakdown in chart form:....

    You may wish to concern yourself more with your own reading and comprehension. Please look right underneath my name. I'm a Republican. A conservative. I take the Bible seriously.

    Glad you got your rant out of your system. God bless you, too.

    And the swamp thickens. Maybe they can create a movie plot for an old style B movie.
    He came to kill the swamp but he was really a swamp rat so it grew and grew until it swallowed up all of his followers. It's aliveee.... Swamp Rat starring the Donald.

    Is that only because he's Republican? Did you call
    for Hillary to drop out of the 2016 election?

    The Al Franken allegations were not 38 years after the fact,
    as are those against Roy Moore.

    After so much crazy in the last year, apprently pedophelia has become normalized instead of something to disqualify a candidate in the USA.

    Personally I thought a candidate bragging about sexually assaulting women by grabbing their vaginas would have been disqualifier as well. It is obvious I do not understand many American Christians.

    One thing is for sure. Hillary nailed it with her "basket of deplorables" statement. We've seen a load of them since Trump got elected.

    Why should people have to wait for a court ruling before considering the ethical behavior of someone running for public office? And why not apply this strict standard to all questions regarding a candidate for office - to include issues beyond ethics? Why not require a court ruling to determine the truth of any potential question regarding a candidate?

    It seems to me that a court is for handling civil or criminal matters, not a determinant on all ethical matters. Voters are the determiners of many things regarding a candidate - ethical behavior being among them. This doesn't require a trial by jury, but the sound judgement of the voter.
