ANN COULTER: Why did it have to be between establishmentarian Luther Strange, who will open borders, or Roy Moore? So I'm frustrated from the beginning on that. As for, if you haven't read The Washington Post article to the viewers, they will be talking about how there are all these women coming forward. No. There's one. There is one allegation of a woman -- yes, he dated girls who were 17, 19 when he was 30. We might find that a little creepy today, but this was nearly 50 years ago. The one serious allegation is a woman -- or at the time she was 14 years old who claims actual molestation. But -- And who knows. I'd like to see what his response is. But, you can't help thinking about the timing here, Laura.
