In addition to Corfman, thee other women interviewed by The Washington Post allege Moore "pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18".
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. "Even the Washington Post report says that he never had sexual intercourse with any of the girls and never attempted sexual intercourse". Twice disbarred, and routinely disrespectful of the Constitution, Roy Moore was unfit for office before these allegations came out. The Senate's GOP leader said if the report is shown to be true, Moore must step aside. He faces Democrat Doug Jones in a special Senate election on December 12 to replace Jeff Sessions, who is now U.S. attorney general.
Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is telling potential donors in a new fundraising pitch that "the forces of evil are on the march in our country".
But Sanders says: "The president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside". I believe Leigh Corfman.
The step comes as Senate Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have called on Moore to step aside in the Alabama Senate race if the allegations are true.
Zeigler, asked to respond to Lipinsky's comments today, stressed that he believes the story about Moore is not true and called the story a "hit piece". Luther Strange, R-Alabama, pitting him against Trump, who threw his own support behind Strange.
A spokesman for the state Democratic Party said Rep. He was considered a heavy favorite in deeply Republican Alabama in the December 12 special election to fill the seat of US Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
"There's now a plausible path for Democrat Doug Jones to win the Alabama Senate race next month; a write-in campaign for defeated establishment candidate Luther Strange could throw a three-way race to the Democrat - and that would deprive the Republicans of a crucial Senate vote", Valliere wrote in a note to clients Monday. None of the four women approached the newspaper, the Post says; reporters reached out to them after hearing rumors of Moore's behavior in the '70s and '80s.
On his Senate campaign website, Moore said he was suspended "for upholding the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman".
McConnell's inner circle spent late Thursday morning discussing the repercussions and how Republicans should move forward - and grousing that if odd, their preferred candidate in the primary, was still the nominee, they would not be answering questions about Moore's conduct.
Moore continues to do well with Alabama's evangelicals, who seem as a voting bloc to be prepared to accept virtually anything of late, but he is being outperformed by Trump among every other group.
