Alabama Gov. believes Moore accusers, will still vote for him

Roy Moore Accuser Appears on 'Today' to Detail How Ala. Senate Candidate 'Seduced Me'

"I think that what we've said is that Roy Moore's, so far, explanations have not been satisfactory", Short said, before returning to his previous point: "But at the same time, Dana, what we expect is what we have said: We campaigned against him".

The biggest newspapers in Alabama issued a front page endorsement today of Roy Moore's opponent in the U.S. Senate race in what is an unabashed condemnation. Earlier on Thursday, the steering committee sent out a statement affirming its support of Moore, adding that Moore's fate should be decided by voters and not "the media or those from afar".

Moore has been accused by two women of initiating unwanted sexual encounters when he was in his 30s and they were 14 and 16.

The resolution was tweeted by Collier Tynes, former chief of staff to ex-Alabama First Lady Dianne Bentley.

Moore's campaign has painted the allegations as politically motivated.

Last month, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House's official stance on the sexual assault accusations is that every single one of the women is lying.

"He will not step down", said his wife, Kayla Moore.

The president's relative silence on Moore and the national conversation on the pervasiveness of sexual harassment in America has drawn renewed attention to women who made their own allegations against Trump past year during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"But he's also concerned that these accusations are 38 years old", Short said.

Trump has not addressed the allegations directed at Moore on Twitter. "The American people spoke very loud and clear when they elected this President". "That they can't seem to come to terms with the reality that their president is just as guilty as Roy Moore". "He will not stop fighting for the people of Alabama".

Moore has pledged to fight the accusations against him as the state GOP in Alabama reaffirmed its support for the embattled candidate.

"I would contend that his followers are more religious than they are Christian", said Steve Flowers, an Alabama political columnist.

"It's been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker", she said.

"I did not support President Trump", Collins said. Her cousin was a Republican governor.

"I think it's really hypocritical and an embarrassment for the state of Alabama, and he's dragging us backwards", Falvey said.
