Raleigh lawyer Catherine Lawson started the #Me At14 campaign on Twitter after multiple women accused Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for a U. Senate seat from Alabama, of sexual misconduct with them when they were teens and he was in his 30s.The campaign is meant to remind people that 14-year-olds are innocent, vulnerable and unable to consent to sex or sexual contact.
A picture around the age when as a teen #Me At14 when I was sexually assaulted, over 40 years ago. I was on the gymnastics team and sang in the choir. “More disturbing than the well-sourced report about Moore were the number of people willing to justify his behavior,” Lawson said.
Still remember it to this day, though at the time I did not report it, nor tell anyone, since I didn't know it was assault. Alabama’s Republican secretary of state, John Merrill, questioned the timing of The Post’s report.
I thought that was her husband because they seemed for comfortable and familiar with each other, just like an old married couple,” one observer says.
Mellencamp has been married three times and has five children, including two sons with Elaine.
Two days after her original tweet, she explained why she started #Me At14. https://t.co/y NUl L5t7b L— Catherine R L Lawson (@catlawson) November 11, 2017 “I shared a picture of me at 14 to illustrate there is no acceptable version of (Moore’s) story,” Lawson said in an interview with The News & Observer.
