Glenn didn’t mince words on today’s show while detailing the latest allegations against Senate candidate Roy Moore, an Alabama Republican accused of sexual misconduct.
“He needs to understand that his campaign is now in a death spiral and the best thing he can do is get out,” Glenn said.
The latest account comes from Gena Richardson, a woman who says that Moore pursued her when she was a high school senior, calling her school while she was in class because she wouldn’t give him her phone number. She said that Moore took her to a dark parking lot on their one date and scared her with a “forceful” kiss.
A Washington Post report says Moore was known at the time for hovering around teenagers at the mall:
In all, The Post spoke to a dozen people who worked at the mall or hung out there as teenagers during the late ’70s and early ’80s and recall Moore as a frequent presence — a well-dressed man walking around alone, leaning on counters, spending enough time in the stores, especially on weekend nights, that some of the young women who worked there said they became uncomfortable.
