White House urges Moore to leave Senate race if sex allegations true

  • Alabama GOP nominee for Senate Roger Moore

"These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign", Moore said.

Eighty-two percent of the 515 likely voters responding to the poll said they had "read, seen, or heard ... news stories in the past 24 hours regarding Senate candidate Roy Moore, which allege that Moore engaged in a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl in 1979, when he was 32 years old".

"If it's true, the Republican Party doesn't have any place for pedophiles and he should step down immediately", said Josh Holmes, a McConnell confidant and his former chief of staff. "Steve Bannon is responsible", he added about the McConnell foil and former White House chief strategist, for enabling candidates such as Moore who are out of the GOP mainstream.

Reynolds says the timing of the allegations in a report from The Washington Post is too coincidental, with only a month left in the campaign.

Ziegler contends that the allegations against Moore are unlikely to impact his political run as he never had "sexual intercourse" with the 14-year-old girl in question, their relationship "happened nearly 40 years ago", and finally, "Moore fell in love with one of the younger women", namely his wife Kayla.

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

"If you're gonna step aside when you get a allegation you might as well not run because when you run you're gonna get an allegation", Moore declared. Moore will face Democrat Doug Jones, a former USA attorney.

But despite these things Republicans, including top elected officials here in North Dakota, insisted on giving Moore the benefit of the doubt. The Post quoted three other women who said he pursued them when they were 16 to 18 and he was in his early 30s. John McCain, R-Ariz., called on Moore to step aside as well - and without couching his statement with "if true" language. "I do not believe them".

Moore explained that he rejects calls for him to recuse himself from the Senate race because he "had nothing to do with this".

Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado is chairman of the NRSC, the campaign arm of the Senate GOP. Luther Strange, R-Ala., who lost the GOP primary to Moore.

The state Republican Party has the power to disqualify Moore from the election, according to the Alabama secretary of state.

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.

Henry said he believes legal action should be considered against Moore's accusers, finding their story unbelievable.

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.

"You understand this is 40 years ago and after the military, and I dated a number of young ladies", Moore said of the possibility of going on dates with other young women.
