Roy Moore vehemently denies sexual misconduct

Roy Moore vehemently denies sexual misconduct

The woman who alleges the sexual encounter never filed a police report and has not filed a civil suit, and Moore called the allegations by the Post "completely false and a desperate political attack".

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon compared the allegations of sexual misconduct with teens against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to the bombshell "Access Hollywood" tape that was released during the 2016 election, accusing The Washington Post of targeting both Moore and Donald Trump politically. "They are two of the biggest goobers we have in Washington D.C.", Henry said.

The woman who described the assault at the age of 14 told her story consistently and was corroborated by friends and records, the Post says.

The allegations against Moore - which he has denied - have prompted other Republicans to weigh in.

No matter what happens, Moore will remain on the ballot on December 12 since a candidate's name can not be removed within 76 days of the election, according to the office of Alabama's secretary of state.

Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones in a special election to succeed Jeff Sessions, who left the Senate to become US attorney general. To listen to some Republican officials in the state, Moore is a victim even if he is guilty.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters traveling with the president in Asia that "the president believes we can not allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person's life", but added that "the president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside". Three other women interviewed by the Post said Moore, now 70, approached them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s. John McCain, R-Ariz., in calling for Moore to step down immediately. "These allegations are disgusting and I believe them against him".

Jerry Moore said, "he knows. that the allegations against Roy Moore are not true, not true at all", Savidge reported.

The NRSC's removal from the account is the most concrete step taken to date to create distance between the national Republican Party and the Moore campaign. In the event of a win by Jones, the slim Republican Senate majority could get even slimmer. The Washington Post reported the allegations Thursday. And it's also possible that after some initial discomfort, an terrible lot of Alabama Republicans will find their way clear to voting for Moore anyway, particularly if he and his defenders continue to hang tough. Luther Strange, R-Alabama, pitting him against Trump, who threw his own support behind Strange.

Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama is facing lurid allegations of sexual misconduct with minors decades ago - and an immediate backlash from party leaders demanding he get out of the race if the accusations prove true.

Asked to clarify if Blunt was canceling on the fundraiser, she repeated, "He won't be in AL".

On his Senate campaign website, Moore said he was suspended "for upholding the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman". "Moore has come out and denied it so you would think that he's telling the truth".
