One plus one makes five: Did Roy Moore assault Leigh Corfman in 1979, when she was 14 years old?
We can't necessarily tell you. We can report some of the things which transpire when the press corps starts a stampede.
According to New York magazine, Gloria Allred is going to present a new accuser today. And sure enough!
Here on the planet of the chimps, one plus one makes five:
PAIELLA (11/13/17): A fifth woman is scheduled to come forward with a sexual-assault allegation against former Alabama judge Roy Moore. On Monday afternoon, famed attorney Gloria Allred will hold a press conference with the latest woman to claim that Moore assaulted her when she was a minor.Interesting, isn't it? Consider:
Last week, the Washington Post published a bombshell story in which four women came forward to say that Moore—who is currently running for a Republican Senate seat—pursued them when they were between the ages of 14 and 18. He was in his thirties at the time.
So far, one (1) woman has made "a sexual-assault allegation against former Alabama judge Roy Moore." But here on the planet of the chimps, if one more woman makes such a claim, that will add up to five such claims in all!
Remember: we're talking about our journalists here, not about Roy Moore. You may be (sensibly) focused on Moore. We focus on our journalists.
With respect to our puzzling press corps, Lincoln dropped by with a question last night:
When a major continental nation's journalists behave in such puzzling ways, could "government of the people" maybe, perhaps and even possibly perish from the earth?
That's the general bet Vladimir Putin has made. We'll be frisking that bet all this week.
