AL.COM: "Roy Moore Grossly Unfit For Office" - Donald V. Watkins 

AL.COM: "Roy Moore Grossly Unfit For Office"
Posted on November 13, 2017 at 5:41 p.m. CST
The editorial below is well-written and clear -- Roy Moore is grossly unfit for office. I concur with every word of this editorial.
I am glad to see show some courage on this subject. The state's largest mainstream news organization has been "missing in action" in the high profile Megan Rondini rape case.
Politics aside, I am deeply troubled that a prosecutor would use his law enforcement position to further his sexual interest in young teenage girls. Like Senate leader Mitch McConnell and, I believe the women in Moore's pedophilia case.
As a parent of a daughter, this case makes me sick. As a spiritual person, I cannot understand the silence of Alabama's religious community in Moore's pedophilia case, except for the 50 or so pastors who openly support Moore. As a caring human being, I cannot sit in silence and normalize the misconduct described by the women who say they were victimized by Moore.

Roy Moore simply cannot be a U.S. Senator. Even if his party and many of its adherents still think it possible, it is unthinkable -- for his state, and his country.
