White House Responds To Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Roy Moore

Roy Moore speaks to students at ACA in Tuscaloosa Wednesday

Oh, my god, you should pardon the expression.

Moore, an anti-establishment conservative, faces Democrat Doug Jones in a special Senate election December 12 to replace Jeff Sessions, who is now United States attorney general.

A former aide for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellMcConnell expects Paul to return to Senate next week Former Hill staff calls for mandatory harassment training Gaming the odds of any GOP tax bill getting signed into law MORE (R-Ky.) knocked former White House strategist Stephen Bannon for his support of Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore amid new allegations that Moore made sexual advances on teenage girls.

"I felt responsible", she told the paper. I'll stay out here with her, ' " says Corfman's mother, Nancy Wells, 71. He took off her shirt and touched her bra and underwear while also guiding her hand over his trousers, Ms. Corfman told The Post. At the heart of the story is Leigh Corfman, who says she was just 14 years old when Moore introduced himself to she and her mother outside of a local courtroom in Alabama, the state Moore is now vying to represent. Then, she says he asked her for her phone number, and picked her up near her house a few days later. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and trousers and removed his clothes. He later called the 14-year-old and drove her to his house, where, according to the report, he removed her clothes and touched her through her bra and underwear.

Moore, as a sitting judge in Alabama, said that then-President Barack Obama wasn't an American citizen and that Islam is a "false religion" that breeds terrorists (20 percent of American Muslims are African American).

Another woman, Wendy Miller, said she first met Moore when she was dressed as an elf and working as a Santa's helper at a shopping mall. Two of the women spoke of Moore giving them glasses of wine when they were under the legal drinking age of 19.

"The 16-year-old and the 18-year-old have no business in that story, because those are women of legal age of consent", he said.

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

Republicans, already reeling from the election losses they suffered on Tuesday, have only a two-seat majority in the Senate and are facing a handful of hard elections next year.

No, there's no denial in there. However, Moore has promised that he will "never give up".

The Republican side of this race is now a complete mess. Moore has given no indication of withdrawing from the race. (As best I understand it, absentee ballots for the December election already have gone out.) Ian Millhiser of ThinkProgress notes that the Republicans have more problems than that. An attempt to amend the names on the ballot filed after this date, moreover, "shall not be cause for reprinting of the ballots". Such a candidate will "not be replaced by the name of another candidate, and the appropriate canvassing board shall not certify any votes for the candidate".

Unusual had been Trump's pick in the primary.

One Moore supporter tried to dismiss the report.
