Luther Strange: Moore allegations are 'very, very, disturbing'

Roy Moore declines to debate Dem opponent

Mobile County GOP Chairman John Skipper, meanwhile, said he believed the accusations reported by the Post were "bunk" because if they were true, Skipper said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) - who opposed Moore in the state's Republican primary - would have publicized them.

A bombshell report jolted the Senate race in Alabama yesterday as a woman accused GOP candidate Roy Moore of asking her out when she was only 14 years old and then kissing and touching her during two meetings at his house.

The three other women, Wendy Miller, Debbie Wesson Gibson and Gloria Thacker Deason, all said Moore took them on dates when he was in his thirties and they were teenagers.

For the full story, see The Washington Post.

Of course, Moore has defined himself as being opposed to everything that McConnell and the national Republican establishment stands for, and, at least at first, judging from his campaign's reply to the story, Moore seems to be determined to brazen things out on familiar lines. His campaign also told the Post that the allegations would have surfaced during previous campaigns if they were true and labelled the charges "the very definition fake news".

Moore will face Democrat Doug Jones for the Senate seat in a special election December 12. Corfman says she voted for Republicans over the past three presidential elections, including for President Donald Trump.

"The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling", said Colorado Sen.

Lee said in a statement: "If these allegations are true, Judge Moore should resign". The decades-old claim has been brought by a lady who was 14 years old at the time of the alleged illegal touchings.

It's too late for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's name to be removed from the ballot, even if he wants to drop out.

"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", Corfman tells the Post.

Corfman alleges that after receiving her phone number, Moore picked her up in a vehicle days later in Gadsden and drove 30 minutes to his home in the woods.

During a second visit, Moore touched her over her bra and underpants, Cortman says, according to the Post. Although Moore appealed the recusal, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff, and the case was heard without Moore.

Alabama law lists the legal age of consent as 16. Moore denied that request, and eventually issued a temporary ruling that gave Borden's estranged husband full custody, ordering Borden to pay $126 a week in child support.

The Alabama special election is to fill the vacancy created when Trump tapped former Sen. In fact, just two days ago, the Foundation for Moral Law sent a retraction demand to the Post for the false stories they wrote about the Judge's work and compensation.

Despite the campaign's clear denial of the allegations, several politicians have come forward calling for Moore to step down.
