Alabama GOP State Rep Calls For Prosecuting Roy Moore’s Accusers: You Can’t Be A Victim 40 Years Later

The Cullman Times reports:

State Rep. Ed Henry lashed out at Roy Moore’s accusers and Republicans who said the U.S. Senate candidate should back out of the special election in an interview Thursday evening with The Times.

Henry said he believes legal action should be considered against Moore’s accusers, finding their story unbelievable.

“If they believe this man is predatory, they are guilty of allowing him to exist for 40 years. I think someone should prosecute and go after them. You can’t be a victim 40 years later, in my opinion,” Henry said.

Henry dropped out of the running for Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat back in April. As you can see below, somebody’s already updated his Wikipedia page.

      Yup. Or if the victim is a boy or if Roy were a democrat

  • Tawreos

    Holy Fucking Shit! I can’t fully wrap my mind around the stupidity in this one fucking statement.

    • AmeriCanadian

      My sentiments exactly. It’s just incomprehensible how low the AL GOP is willing to go. Victim blaming at it’s finest.

      • Smokey

        When thoughts and prayers won’t do try calumny and slander.

    • boatboy_srq

      Same sentiment drives the neglect of veterans, the disinterest in meaningful eldercare, opposition to ACA, and just about any resistance the GOTea exhibits toward social programs.

      • GayOldLady

        You do know they think all you have to do is “turn it over to god”.

    • GayOldLady

      So, I’m thinking, you don’t currently live, nor have you ever lived in Dixie.

  • Paula

    Is there any provision for the Federal government to disband a state and take it over? Its time for Alabama to become a ward of the state. They are too stupid to govern themselves.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      basically thats what the repugnants did to parts of michigan and all of puerto rico

      • boatboy_srq

        The GOTea took over there to ensure failure, and because Blahs/Browns cain’t govern themselves. Prejudice, not evidence, drove that. Bit of a difference.

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          yes i know. merely stating it has been done

    • Boreal

      Maybe Russia would take it?

      • Tawreos

        I thought they wanted Georgia?

        • Boreal

          They can have that too and take Mississippi while they’re at it.

    • Sporkfighter

      Funny you should ask. It’s unconstitutional to deny any state it’s representation in the Senate without the state’s approval.

    • Grumpy Old Man

      Their constitution is about 40 times longer than any other – most of the power resides with their congress and so they change the constitution when they want to do something – as opposed as passing laws FFS.

      I’ve known several women who were beaten, stalked and harassed by men for years and the cops wouldn’t do anything. (well, once they arrested the woman because she slapped the guy after he stole her car and purse, no consequences for the man)

    • BlindBill

      The Catholic Church spent millions of parishioner’s donation dollars to fight extending the statute of limitations on child sex abuse complaints in New York State last year …. And the measure was stopped by a white man who held it up in committe so it could not make it for a vote in the legislature. it is a version of DADT … We will never ask, and you better not tell ….

    • Mark Cross

      It’s not just women.
      As a firsthand example, my mother sexually abused me.

      • iambu

        Yup, women do it too. In my case, a babysitter. I wish this hadn’t happened to us. We didn’t deserve it, nor any of the shame that came after. But I’m grateful we both survived. (Upvote for support.)

      • Smithbc

        Oh absolutely. Men are victims too. But I think her point was that you don’t often see adult male politicians victim blaming men. They disproportionately seem to think that when a woman is assaulted, it was probably her fault or she’s probably making it up.

        • ColdCountry

          What I see more of, instead of victim shaming men, they simply don’t believe them. Certainly not adult men, who do suffer from sexual harassment, in the workplace if nowhere else. The system is simply not geared for anyone to tell a grown man he can’t put his hands, or anything else, on anyone he wants, nor will it believe that a man would not want a woman coming on to him.

    • Sporkfighter

      What do you mean by “rarely”?

      If they find justice half the time, is that good? Is it something to build on? No. Placing your life on public display, suffering humiliating personal attacks, risking your job with a fifty percent chance your attacker will end up laughing at you is little better than no chance at justice because few rational people and fewer traumatized people would take that risk. Unless justice is a likely outcome, nothing will change. There isn’t a fifty percent chance of justice.

      There needs to be some awareness that an accusation does not automatically mean that the accused is guilty, but shaming victims rather than treating them as we treat any other person reporting a crime would be a great advance.

      Sex isn’t shameful, and being a victim of a sex crime shouldn’t be either; in our society, they are, and that’s the problem.

    • somehistorian

      At least in our legal system, whatever your case might be, it can be heard.
      Doubt any other country can say the same. The problem arises with interpretation, definitions, length of time or false accusations that effects possible cases such as these. You should not be able to destroy anyone’s career or life without due process & repercussions.

    • Grumpy Old Man
  • Cuberly Deux

    Here we go….throw those threats out there. Just in case any other women folk were even considering coming forward.

    • LaChatSayWha

      That’s what they’re doing. Apparently his preference for powerless, very young, easily abused girls was no secret down in AL.

      So the fellow abusers and predators all hit Twitter and Fox to threaten the dozens(?), hundreds (?) of other women whom he preyed upon when they were girls. The 14 year old victim was doxxed on Twitter by that nazi dickhead who was responsible for the Comet Ping Pong bullshit. And can I just add a “Projection!” right here?

      There are more victims of this pig.

    Maybe the next step could be pressuring 19 Republican senators to vote for expulsion. Even Mitch McConnell is on board with holding Roy Moore accountable in theory. Let’s have him and others put their money where their mouths are.

    This so-called lawmaker has just about the same grasp of the law as “Judge” Moore does. The Alabama Law Schools are sadly in need of replacement.

      Just proud ignorance with heavy mounts of self-righteous religion fueled superiority. That’s a recipe for these disasters of tribalism. Religious fundamentalism of any stripe generally leads to evil, not enlightenment.

      • another_steve

        “Religious fundamentalism of any stripe generally leads to evil, not enlightenment.”

        I agree 100 percent. If you (generic “you”) believe that your religion is the only true one, you are mentally ill. It is, perhaps, the most prevalent form of mental illness on the planet.

        Lots and lots of good and honest people are spiritual or religious, including lots and lots of LGBT people. I have a spiritual side as well.

        But again… If you believe that your religion is the only true one, you are mentally ill.

        • Barry S G

          A person may believe that their faith is the true faith, BUT they should also have the humility to admit that they might be wrong. Faith is not something that can be proved or verified; it is faith, belief, a personal stance, not a scientific fact.

          • another_steve

            Agree.

            “The humility to admit that they might be wrong” is the antithesis of fundamentalism, which claims absolute and unerring knowledge in an arena in which absolute and unerring knowledge is not possible.

      • SFBruce

        How anyone can say that to defend Moore is beyond comprehension. Sure, 14-year-olds frequently make decisions which aren’t in their best interests, and that’s why they can’t consent to sexual activity with a 32 year old.

    • Ben in Oakland

      Legally speaking, they CAN’t make good decisions.

  • Buford

    Let’s state the obvious… for Republicans, it’s apparently unfair to presume guilt unless/until there’s been a criminal conviction. No criminal conviction no wrongdoing occurred.

    For non-Republicans, however, it’s apparently just fine to presume guilt and demand immediate repercussions because allegations don’t have to be criminal or verified prior to passing judgment… eg, Bill Clinton is a rapist, ‘Lock her up!’, etc.

It’s only been 27 years for me, so I’ll have to get back to you in 13, but holy shitballs, does it ever hurt my heart and every corner of my soul like flaming fucking daggers when I think about what was done to me. Even after 10 years of therapy, even after my abuser’s been dead for 6. It hurts. A lot. I’d ask you to stop what you’re doing, but that sure didn’t help me the first time around. Go ahead. Try to prosecute me for not taking my abuser to court when I was still in the single digits and didn’t understand *what* they were doing to me, just that, as mentioned before, it hurt. A lot. And still does. Really. Come at me. I friggin’ dare you.

    Roy Moore’s republican enablers, many of them religious zealots, think that can be explained away and instead are attacking the victim.
    THE REPUBLICANS ARE ATTACKING THE VICTIM of a republican pedophile !
    Power is what Republicans want, so they can reward their wealthy donors.
    When the next elections come around 2018, we need to constantly remind the voters of the kind of society the republicans represent.

    Duck dynasty supports Roy Moore He wasn’t propositioning young girls he was actually calling ducks and here in Alabama those 2 things are remarkably similar and easily confused with one another

  • david fairfield

    It is utterly AMAZING how many people are coming to Moore’s defense. Did anyone catch Brian Williams reading a statement comparing Moore’s actions to those of the Virgin Mary in an attempt to completely normalize pedophilia? Since yesterday we are hearing leaders of church groups, members of congress etc attempting to normalize his actions. And they’re not DENYING his actions, they’re DEFENDING them!!!! What the fuck is happening here? These people who are swarming to his rescue for CHILD MOLESTATION (not to mention all of his other assholery) have NO PROBLEM condemning the lgbt community at every possible opportunity and wouldn’t hesitate to have us jailed and executed. (being the good christian people that they and Moore are). Using their useless fucking bible to twist their bigotry and hatred toward gay people is one thing, but using it to condone pedophilia is simply a new low that proves they’ll stop at nothing to have a leader who will encourage their hatred. Which simply means there is not one single thing to which they will not stoop to a new low in order to forward Moore’s agenda. Fucking pigs.

    • Spongebob CrankyPants

      I’m not defending Moore because I think he is 100% guilty (although I have no evidence to support that), however, I do think that victims of crimes likes these should come forward sooner rather then later.

    • leastyebejudged

      The accusations against Moore are one thing…

      But the impeachable statements from his supporters, well, THAT’S quite another animal entirely !

      This is really a gift that we should thank Jesus for !

  • sfbob

    More proof that people should be made to take a class in civics before being allowed to run for office.

    • Girlgoon

      More went to law school after all that civics instruction If he doesn’t get it by now hes not gonna get it ever

  • BrigidsBlest

    This fucker needs a bullet hole between his eyes. It would greatly improve his looks. And disposition.

  • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

    I have every covfefe the fine people of Alabama will do the right thing and elect Roy Moore next month; thus enabling the world to notate forever how downright evil they really are.

  • KarenAtFOH

    Yo Ed, even in your shitty State, the statute of limitations in this situation is like, forever:

    “Although the civil SOL is very short, Alabama gives prosecutors a lot of time to file violent or childhood sexual abuse charges. The criminal statutes of limitations vary depending on the severity of the offense. The criminal statutes of limitations include:

    No statute of limitations: rape, violent sexual abuse, sexual abuse with the threat of violence, and any sexual abuse of a victim under the age of 16,
    Other felony sexual abuse: three years, and
    Misdemeanor abuse: one year.”

    From LegalMatch.com

    • Spongebob CrankyPants

      There may not be a SOL on these types of cases, the problem is trying to prove or disprove them. Witnesses have died, memories are not perfect or forever.

      • Ann Kah

        True, but when people come forward in numbers, or people describe behavior that is familiar to all Moore’s acquaintances, they make up for the lack of contemporary witnesses.

        • leastyebejudged

          lol, what legal precedent makes THAT little bit of dishonesty true ? ROFL

          That’s true only in the press.

    • leastyebejudged

      Then accusers should follow the legal routs and report and file suit.

      That they do not, and instead, turn to the press, seems fallacious.

  • Sam

    “You Can’t Be A Victim 40 Years Later”… Yet somehow American Christians get to play the victim their whole lives.

  • Pip

    Shit like this is EXACTLY why rape, abuse, molestation, etc survivors do not come forward.

    • Spongebob CrankyPants

      Explain.

      • Pip

        Explain what exactly?

        • Spongebob CrankyPants

          How “Shit like this is EXACTLY why rape, abuse, molestation, etc survivors do not come forward.”.

          • Pip

            Someone who survives such a thing already has enough to deal with beyond the fact that those around them might not believe or support them. They see people come out of the woodwork to defend the perpetrators of such crimes while blaming and persecuting the survivors. The fact that someone in an office that should be defending and helping instead talks about prosecuting those who would come forward and share their story. This type of behavior by society makes it hard for those who should come forward, it encourages them to keep quiet so they do no become the focus of such vitriol.

          • Spongebob CrankyPants

            When have victims of these crimes been prosecuted?
            There is nothing they could be prosecuted for. This guy is a bag of hot air.

          • Pip

            He is a bag of hot air, however he also has a position in our government. Rational reasoning isn’t always in the forefront of someone’s mind when they have been through a rape or been through abuse. Seeing someone with a seat on our government speaking out about prosecuting these women for coming forward can set those who need to speak up back. Prosecution has not happened here in the US that I know of, however persecution is the norm.

          • leastyebejudged

            Maybe the solution is making the government and it’s agents MORE accountable, instead of less.

          • leastyebejudged

            Exactly, but the intellectually dishonest ignore that and just knee jerk with the rest of the clones. As usual.

          • Ann Kah

            I thought that was a straightforward statement of fact that anyone less dense than reinforced concrete could understand.

  • JCF

    We seriously need to get those poor women (esp Leigh Corfman) out of Alabama. Someone start a gofundme already?

  • superindy

    Belligerent ignorance

  • Nowhereman

    The women aren’t asking for anything except to be believed, and for voters in Alabama to reject him. They did not commit a crime. I’m assuming that Ed has never been a woman in this situation, or had a female family member in this situation.

    • Ann Kah

      Or noticed or cared what happened to his female family members. . .

  • Ann Kah

    Because of course a young girl would be able to stand up to an older and more prominent man with a legal education …right. Perhaps if the people of Alabama had a society with a history of supporting the rights of women and minors forty years ago, they might have been able to go public. But no, the men in town were too busy running around in silly sheets and burning crosses, “civilization” be damned.

  • Gianni

    I wanted to ask how a guy with no real brain activity like this goof gets elected, but after a bit of reflection, realized that is a really dumbassed question.

  • Stubenville

    He should get the electric chair for that tie.

    • leastyebejudged

      One of my fav local weather guys wears ties like that !

  • He’s showing the #GOP has mutated into the #GestapoOperativeParty. Say something they don’t like? Off to the gas chamber or off with their heads – the latter likely being the preferred method since it’s so violent and gory.

  • leastyebejudged

    He’s not wrong, but as Moore became increasingly popular and powerful – that would tend to dissuade any reasonable person from becoming his target.

    And if what Moore says is true – that he always got the mother’s permission to date – you end up with some serious family fallout in addition to the public scrutiny.

    Honestly I can see it either way, but I am torn, since I was educated early-on to live the Silence=Death thing. This kind of contradicts that. I guess it’s just as forgotten now as the Pink Triangle.

  • ColdCountry

    Jesus wept. Then he went out, got a gun, and blew the nuts off these fucking assholes. Oh, wait, that’s my fantasy….

  • watchthewingnuts

    Yeah, I’m sure all the survivors of the Holocaust and the Catholic Church molestation factory and so on just suddenly stopped being victims after a fixed number of years too.
