    I don't see why Roy has not offered to take one.
    Get real. Anita Hill took one administered by a DC ex FBI agent. She passed. Clarence Thomas?

    No one should allow a media frenzy or politicians like McCain to bully them into submission.

    Now would it be better for the party for him to drop out of the race? That is a different question entirely and one I suspect you probably have the right answer for.
    His own statements indicate that he does not believe himself to be fully innocent, he's just cynically staying in with the confidence that they could find a little girl's body buried in his backyard and Fox News would go "where's the video of her murder?" while Alabamans would insist on not electing a Democrat.

    He may be right. The state party is still standing by their man, and they control Moore's fate, not Mitch McConnell or Cory Gardner. At least for now.

    Did I miss Hillary offering to take a lie detector test over her home brew email server with SAP info on it?

    Did Lynch offer to take a lie detector test about her meeting with Slick on that tarmac?

    PS.

    Lynch never denied being on the tarmac with Bill. Why would she need to take a lie detector test?

    So his comments really have nothing to do my argument.
    It proves the willingness to take the test. It shows one has nothing to hide.

    Except polygraphs reveal absolutely nothing. They are the homeopathy of the criminal investigative world.

    An innocent, naturally nervous wreck will "convict" himself on the test, while a guilty-as-sin cool customer has nothing to fear. It's a joke.

    More to the point, lie detectors are crap. Anyone can learn how to fool a polygraph. All you really need to do is "panic" yourself to fuck up the baseline, and then relax when the "key" questions are asked.

    That's a good point, I had heard that before but I forgot. I believe various people sell such training...

    They're scam artists. You can get it all from a book, or even a website. Ten bucks says you can find a dozen YouTube video tutorials. I suppose trainers might have value if they have an actual polygraph to help you practice, but the techniques really don't require any sort of formal training.

    because they are not accurate.
