It seems hard to believe that this whole Roy Moore pedophilia catastrophe could possibly get any worse for the Republican Party, but every new report only seems to make things worse. And after the latest bombshell of information that’s just been released, the GOP should drop Moore ASAP, because he looks guilty as hell!
The Washington Post recently published an explosive report on the Alabama Republican Senate candidate, which included allegations that Moore chased after teen girls when he was twice their age. In this report, it was stated that two of Moore’s accusers said they’d met Moore at the Gadsden Mall, and that he frequently creeped around this mall by himself – that is, until he was banned…
According to The New Yorker, several local sources have come forward to say that Moore was actually banned from Gadsden Mall, because – get this – he was harassing teenage girls. The New Yorker reported:
Greg Legat, who is now fifty-nine and living in East Gadsden, was, from 1981 to 1985, an employee at the Record Bar, a store that was in the Gadsden Mall. By the early eighties, Legat told me, the mall was “the place to be. There were no empty stores. And lots of kids came around. Lots of teen-agers. You went there to see and be seen.” Legat met his wife, Jo Anne, there. She worked at a restaurant called Orange Bowl. Legat remembers that parents dropped their kids off at the mall, typically unchaperoned. Teens filled the place.
Legat says that he saw Moore there a few times, even though his understanding then was that he had already been banned. “It started around 1979, I think,” Legat said. “I know the ban was still in place when I got there.” Legat recalled a Gadsden police officer named J. D. Thomas, now retired, who worked security at the mall. “J. D. was a fixture there, when I was working at the store,” Legat said. “He really looked after the kids there. He was a good guy. J. D. told me, ‘If you see Roy, let me know. He’s banned from the mall.’ ” Legat recalled Thomas telling him, “If you see Moore here, tell me. I’ll take care of him.’ ” Legat said that his boss, Eddie Hill, also told him to look for Moore. A phone call to Hill’s number was not returned.
Reporter Charles Bethea, the author of the New Yorker report, also stated that two law enforcement officers had told him why Moore had been banned. One officer, who wished to remain anonymous, said this:
“General knowledge at the time when I moved here was that this guy is a lawyer cruising the mall for high-school dates.”
Bethea also reported that Moore wasn’t allowed in several stores because he wouldn’t stop bothering young girls.
This report comes just as yet another woman, Beverly Young Nelson, has accused Moore of trying to rape her when she was 16 years old. Moore, of course, has denied it – just as he has with the other accusations. But given the fact that shady details of Moore’s history are coming to light, who is going to believe him now?
