Breitbart News Editor Defends Roy Moore Accused Of Pursuing Teen Girls: ‘Only One’ Would Be ‘Problematic’

Breitbart.com editor-at-large Joel Pollack defended Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore who has being accused of pursuing sexual relationships with four teen girls.

The Washington Post reports the girls were 14, and between the ages of 16 and 18, when Moore allegedly pursued them sexually in the late 1970s and early 1980s when he was in his 30s; Moore has denied the allegations.

During an interview with MSNBC, Pollack tried to discount the story by referring to Moore’s alleged pursuit of 16 to 18-year-old girls as “perfectly legitimate relationships”:

Well, if this story is true, and I think that any story of sexual misconduct especially with someone who is under age is very serious. Why would The Washington Post wrap it with all kinds of perfectly legitimate relationships as well as all kinds of other political clutter?

I think the reason people are questioning not only the motivations, but the accuracy of The Washington Post piece is because they packaged it with all sorts of other stuff that has nothing to do with the question. And so, we’ll have to see where this goes. I think there’s a lot of drilling down that needs to be done…

The 16-year old and the 18-year old have no business in that story, because those are women of legal age of consent at the time…

My point is that the Post has successfully put a narrative out, at least on MSNBC and in other places, that there’s this pattern of teenagers. There’s really, as far as know, the facts could come out differently but as far as we know, there’s only one relationship that’s been alleged that’s problematic…
