Women Come Forward With Sexual Allegations Against GOP Senate Nominee Roy Moore

John McCain said the allegations are bad enough, and Moore should step down anyway.

Others, Democrats and Republicans alike, said that the nominee should step aside if the accusations have any truth behind them.

Vice President Mike Pence also "found the allegations in the story disturbing and believes, if true, this would disqualify anyone from serving in office", said spokeswoman Alyssa Farah.

What is it about using Jesus to defend Moore from this allegation? "Our children and grandchildren's futures are on the line", he tweeted Thursday.

Isaac Boltansky, an analyst at research firm Compass Point, noted that the polling Alabama was already relatively close between Moore and his Democratic competitor, Doug Jones, and the recent allegations could throw the race into flux. Corfman told The Washington Post that Moore gave her alcohol, touched her and guided her hand to his underwear. Alabama's age of consent was and is 16.

Some prominent Republicans are calling on Moore to leave the race, but he does have his defenders, in addition to Zeigler.

During the 2012 election, Republican Senate candidates in Missouri and in made inaccurate and controversial comments about rape that allowed Democrats to make inroads with women voters across the country.

It's a bittersweet moment for some Republicans who thought Moore never should have been the party's nominee.

The Moore campaign issued a statement Thursday calling the allegations "the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation". "McConnell has any say so in this". It would achieve two goals - distancing themselves from Moore, and (theoretically, at least) opening up the potential for a successful write-in campaign for Luther Strange.

Russian parliament mulls response to U.S. move on RT
The U.S. intelligence agencies allege that RT served as a tool for the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. RT has been singled out as a propaganda outlet in the wake of alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential vote.

Moore's Democratic challenger, former US attorney Doug Jones, had little to say aside from an eight-word campaign statement: "Roy Moore needs to answer these serious charges". "There is no place in our party for sexual predators".

"I think Alabama would elect Satan if he could get Obamacare repealed", said Jonathan P. Gray, a Republican consultant in the state who is not working on the Senate race this year. "I don't know what he's going to do, but we'll see what develops".

A senior official in the USA state of Alabama has used the Bible to condone Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's reported sexual misconduct with minors and dismissed the furore over the allegations as "much ado about nothing".

None of the women sought out The Post.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee is ending its fundraising agreement with Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore in light of allegations of sexual contact with a teenager decades ago. All four women spoke on the record to the Post. All were initially reluctant to speak publicly but chose to do so after multiple interviews, saying they thought it was important for people to know about their interactions with Moore.

The news struck the Capitol with a thunderbolt Thursday afternoon.

"It's a bad situation", said Henry Barbour, a Republican National Committeeman from neighboring Mississippi. That non-authoritative text placed Mary's age at 12 when she conceived and it cited supposed evidence of her enduring virginity to demonstrate she conceived Jesus without sexual intercourse.

Reynolds supports Moore and says if the candidate steps down now, that would mean surrendering to Democrat Doug Jones. Luther Strange, left open the possibility he may re-enter the campaign. Several reporters were waiting for him in the Ohio Clock Corridor.

The biggest Senate GOP super PAC, the Senate Leadership Fund, excoriated Moore Thursday, but it had already spent millions attacking the far-right former Supreme Court Justice to prop up odd in the GOP primary. "Moore should not serve in the U.S. Senate". "I have never engaged in sexual misconduct", Moore said Friday.
