I agree with many of your points, Jack. But my biggest issue here is the amount of time that has lapsed. These things occurred (or didn’t occur) in a different era. I’m concerned that every one of us would be disqualified for public office if certain things were dredged up and illuminated. I’m reserving judgment on this issue until more information is forthcoming, but I’m especially interested in the intervening years; those decades since the accusations. What kind of character has this man exhibited since the seventies to either lend credence to or discredit these accusations? Not being from Alabama, I haven’t followed his political career, but I’m interested in knowing if the decades since his thirties have been trialized by indiscretions or if he has exhibited the sort of character he now claims to have.
