WaPo: Woman Accuses Roy Moore Of Sexual Encounter When She Was 14

A news report published Thursday by the Washington Post described a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl initiated by Moore when he was 32.

The paper also spoke with multiple other women who claim Moore pursued them as teens, though none of them say Moore forced them to do anything.

Moore called the allegations "completely false" and vigorously denied them in a statement.

"If these allegations are true, he must step aside", McConnell said Thursday.

Gardner, who's heading the national Republicans' Senate campaign arm this cycle, endorsed Moore in September after he won the primary - a pitched battle between establishment Republicans backing odd and Moore supporters, including former top Trump strategist Steve Bannon - saying the NRSC has always been focused on "keeping a strong Republican majority in the Senate, and that includes Alabama".

Moore, who is running for Senate in Alabama, is one of the most staunchly anti-LGBTQ politicians in the country.

Wendy Miller told the Washington Post that Moore first approached her when she was 14 years old, and asked her on dates when she was 16 years old.

Some of what Moore is accused of would have been illegal under Alabama law.

"Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today's Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake", the campaign said, noting that Moore has been married to the same woman for 33 years and has four children and five grandchildren. According to The Hill, Moore at the time was serving as an assistant district attorney.

She says that Moore drove her back to the same house after dark, and that before long she was lying on a blanket on the floor.

"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", she told the newspaper.

Corfman says that when the two were alone, Moore asked for her phone number.

During a second visit, Moore touched her over her bra and underpants, Cortman says, according to the Post.

The election is December 12.

"The Judge has been a candidate in four hotly-contested statewide political contests, twice as a gubernatorial candidate and twice as a candidate for chief justice".

Moore's resignation is made all the more unlikely by the fact that he's publicly called these allegations "fake news", in an attempt to throw doubt on the women's claims.

Two of her friends at the time recall her talking about spending time with an older man, one of whom said she identified him as Moore. "Whatever this is, just get it over". Roy Moore was never the choice of the party's leadership - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others talked President Donald Trump into supporting the incumbent, Senator Luther Strange - but they grudgingly fell in line behind the controversial former judge.

To that end, WHNT News 19 has asked the Moore campaign multiple times to clarify which specific aspects of the Post's reporting on the Foundation for Moral Law are incorrect.

"If the allegations are true, yes, I think he should step aside", Sen.
