Candidate Moore has been accused of fiddling with high school girls when he was in his thirties. All we have are a series of accusations. The fact that he was in his thirties when his now wife was in high school, is a fact and certainly seems to support a pattern, but there is no evidence that he knew her when she was underaged.
According to one of Moore’s lawyers, it is not uncommon for a couple to hook up without any knowledge of their respective ages. Clearly the lawyer is the stage for an “I didn’t know” defense. I have never practiced law in Alabama, so ignorance of the law may in fact be defensible in that sovereign state.
