Roy Moore appears to subscribe to the legal orthodoxy that the best defense is a good offense.
The failed Alabama GOP Senate candidate is holding a Thursday press conference in Gadsden, Alabama, to announce a second lawsuit fighting back against allegations from multiple women that he courted and made sexual contact with teenage girls, including one who was 14 at the time, when he was a district attorney in his 30s in the 1970s and 1980s.
