Roy’s ratfuckers definitely have the spirit of his campaign down cold:
A robocall from someone posing as a Washington Post reporter offering money for “damaging remarks” about Alabama Republican Roy Moore is fake, the Post said Tuesday after a local station in Alabama reported on it.
The call ― an apparent attempt to discredit the Post’s reporting on sexual assault allegations against the U.S. Senate candidate ― was received by at least one person, Pastor Al Moore of Creola, who reported it to local CBS affiliate WKRG-TV.
In the recording, someone identifying himself as a Post reporter named “Bernie Bernstein” says he’s calling to “find out if anyone at this address is a female between the ages of 54 to 57 years old willing to make damaging remarks about candidate Roy Moore for a reward of between $5,000 and $7,000.”
The Post’s executive editor Marty Baron released a statement to the station saying the call is a hoax.
“The call’s description of our reporting methods bears no relationship to reality,” Baron said. “We are shocked and appalled that anyone would stoop to this level to discredit real journalism.”
Always nice when you can get the anti-Semitic and red-baiting exacta in there!
Of course, when you’re trying to defend a cross between George Wallace, Humbert Humbert, and Donald Trump Jr. subtle may not be an option:
Beverly Young Nelson’s testimony today about the attempted rape she endured as a 16-year-old at the hands of Roy Moore does not tell us anything new about Moore’s character. He was clearly a serial predator of teenage girls, and even more accounts may well emerge. Nelson’s story does tell us something about Moore’s intelligence: He has even less of it than anybody could have imagined.
According to Nelson, Moore not only locked the car door and groped her, he signed her yearbook. Given that Moore apparently made a habit of attempting statutory rape, it would not require an abundance of caution for him to grasp that leaving behind a written record of his attraction to teen girls was inadvisable. And just to make it totally clear the perpetrator was himself, and not some other Roy Moore, he signed it, “Roy Moore, D.A.”
Has Assange tweeted about how the Deep State is trying to bring down Moore to stop the radical possibilities created by his Trump-like-on-many-levels anti-establishment campaign yet?
