Saturday Night Live cold open blasts Roy Moore and Jeff Sessions

SNL's Sessions: Roy Moore a Little 'Too Alabama'

On Saturday, Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee tweeted that, "I'm sorry, but even before these reports surfaced, Roy Moore's nomination was a bridge too far".

As the sexual misconduct allegations roil the Alabama Senate race, Saturday Night Live waded right in with a sketch portraying candidate Roy Moore meeting with VP Mike Pence (Beck Bennett).

The former judge has denied the allegations about the girl and about having pursued dates with three other teenagers when he was in his 30s.

But others have said more strongly that they believe the detailed accounts of the women and acknowledge the public ridicule the accusers have faced for coming forward.

"You know, this is a bad situation, almost 40-year-old allegation, we'll probably never know for sure exactly what happened", said Toomey, R-Pa, told NBC.

The Washington Post reported last week that a 53-year-old woman accused Moore of initiating sexual contact with her when she was 14 and he was 32.

Asked if that would have been usual for him, Moore said, "Not generally, no".

A poll released by JMC Analytics on Sunday found that 48% of Alabama voters said they were leaning toward supporting Democratic candidate Doug Jones, compared to just 44% who said they were considering supporting Moore.

Both Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnel and House Speaker Paul Ryan have called for Moore to step aside in the Senate election race if the allegations are true, and several GOP senators have withdrawn their backing for Moore. "You know, this is a bad situation", Toomey said on NBC News' "Meet the Press".

Toomey did not rule out the possibility that Senate Republicans might work to unseat Moore if he wins the special election against Democrat Doug Jones on December 12. Luther Strange as a write-in candidate to run against Moore.
