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.
What do you think, is it time for Judge Moore to call it quits? Tell us what you think in the comment section.

GLENN: He didn’t just pinch it. He grabbed it.
In the continuing saga of Roy Moore. That’s the new allegation from another woman, accusing the Senate hopeful Roy Moore of sexual misconduct. In the first accusation that happened after Moore was already married, Tina Johnson claims that Moore grabbed her behind when he was — when she was at his office seeking help with child custody in 1991.
Tina Johnson wasn’t the only person to believe forward yesterday with new accusations against Moore. Twenty-two years prior, Gina Richardson called a 30-year-old Moore regularly — or recalled a Moore who was 30 years old. He was stalking her at the mall that she worked at. Gina recounts that Moore would often come by her section of Sears and talk to her.
This is just not painting a good picture of this 30-year-old DA hanging out at Sears, talking to one of the sales assistants. On more than one occasion, he asked the 18-year-old out. She would usually tell him no and that her dad was a pastor and very strict. But according to Gina, Moore wouldn’t take no for an answer. She was in trig class at her high school, when she was summoned to the principle’s office over the intercom in her classroom. She had a phone call. Apparently, it was Roy Moore. And he had called the high school to ask her out on a date again.
She eventually said yes. And they went to a movie theater at the mall where she worked. It was a normal date, until Moore drove Gina to her car. And after the movie, he forcefully kissed her.
After that, she never wanted to see him again. Moore’s campaign responded to the new allegations, quote, if you are a liberal and hate Judge Moore, apparently he groped you. If you are a conservative and love Judge Moore, you know those allegations are a political farce. End quote.
What’s true? What’s not?
What’s political cannonfodder, and what’s real emotional and physical trama that has been hidden away for so long? These women should be believed at face value — I’m sorry — they should be taken seriously. Her accusations at face value. They should be looked into. As for Roy Moore, whether these allegations are true or not, he needs to understand now that his campaign is in a death spiral. And the best thing he can do is get out.
