Moore accuser #5 (you know there's a problem when you have to start numbering the accusers), Kelly Harrison Thorp, said she was 17 when Moore asked her for a date. She was a waitress at Red Lobster. This story pegged my BS meter.
The article asserts: One day Roy Moore came into the restaurant, and she recognized him.
"He was a public figure in this small town," she said of Moore, who at the time was in his early 30s and the deputy district attorney for Etowah County. Later that year he would mount an unsuccessful campaign for circuit court judge.
Come on! How many 17-year-olds in a county of 100,000 people can name an Assistant D.A.? I can tell you how many high school seniors not closely related to said D.A. or a judge can pick out an ADA from a lineup here where I live (similar county size): Zero. I'd bet $50 on it. Stop insulting our intelligence...both sides.
