Accused child molester Roy Moore, who is running for U.S. Senate in Tuesday’s special election, invited a friend he hadn’t seen in nearly four decades to give a testimonial about Moore’s character that included the two of them accidentally visiting a brothel when they served together in the US Army in Vietnam.
At a Monday night rally on the eve of Tuesday’s election, Bill Staehle told the crowd that he and Moore had been invited to go to a “private club” by a fellow soldier, and they went because it was the soldier’s last night and there were “legitimate private clubs.”
When they arrived, “it turned out to be a brothel,” he continued. “We walked inside. I could tell you what I saw, but I don’t want to.”
As the crowd laughed, Staehle added: “Roy turned to me, and in less time than it took for someone to come up to us, and there were certainly pretty girls, and they were girls, they were young, some were probably very young, I don’t know, I don’t remember that I wasn’t there long enough. Roy said to me, ‘We shouldn’t be here, I’m leaving.’ Or words to that effect.”
Staehle said that they asked the third man to leave with them but he refused.
Staehle and Moore took his Jeep and left him there all night with the child prostitutes.
The man returned to base the next morning on the back of a motorcycle, Staehle said with a grin.
“That was Roy – honorable, disciplined, morally straight and highly principled,” Staehle said.
