Investigative reporters pounced when GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore faced lurid charges involving underage girls. Where are they now that Democrat Raphael Warnock also faces lurid charges?
Like Moore, the allegations against Warnock involve the abuse of underage children decades ago. They center on a Maryland church camp where a young Warnock served in a senior role, and where he was arrested in 2002 for obstructing a police investigation into alleged abuses taking place on camp grounds.
Moore’s misdeeds received wall-to-wall coverage from the national news media. Republicans were pressed to disavow him.
The news media so determined to reveal Moore’s scandalous behavior have been lethargic, to say the least, when it comes to Warnock: The Democrat has been allowed to wave away the arrest as the "overzealous actions of a few police officers."
