Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler defended Roy Moore not by denying the allegations against him, but by pointing out that Mary, Jesus' mother, was a teenager. THREAD 1 #metoo #believewomen #predator #believeher

Yes. He compared a man in his 30's pursuing girls ranging in age from 14 to 18 to Joseph, husband of Mary. 2 #statutory #hypocrasy #privilege #itsillegal

The actions below are a Class A #misdemeanor in Alabama: sexual abuse, first degree - #statutory if someone 19 or older subjects another person to sexual contact who is over age 12 but younger than 16. 3

Jim Ziegler called that "dating" and said there's nothing illegal or immoral about it. So apparently he would be fine with a man in his 30's behaving that way with his 14 year old daughter or granddaughter. And he needs to brush up on Alabama age of consent laws. 4

Here is Ziegler's contact information if anyone would like to share their thoughts with him 9

"Corfman described her story consistently in six interviews with The Post. The Post confirmed that her mother attended a hearing at the courthouse in February 1979 through divorce records. Moore’s office was down the hall from the courtroom." 6

The Washington Post did their due diligence. 7 #factsmatter

Alabama Bibb County Republican chairman Jerry Pow told the Star's Dale that he'd vote for Moore even if he had committed a sex crime against a teenage girl. 8

Here's his contact information in case anyone would like to share their thoughts. 9

According to RAINN,
"From 2009-2013, Child Protective Services agencies substantiated, or found strong evidence to indicate that, 63,000 children a year were victims of sexual abuse." 10

Republicans have made it very clear that they do not see women or girls as equals to men or boys. Remember that at every. Single. Election. 10 #VoteBlue #VoteDem

And if anyone you know tells your they've been sexually assaulted, here's how to support them. 11
