US Senate race jarred by accusation

Four Women Accuse Senate Candidate Roy Moore of Sexual Misconduct

Donald Trump has said he believes a Republican Senate candidate in the United States will "step aside" if allegations about the GOP hopeful are true.

Hours before Louis C.K. canceled on Colbert, WaPo reported Moore, whose schtick is that he's more devout than the wicked rest of us, allegedly initiated a sexual encounter with a woman when she was just 14 years old and he was an assistant D.A.

Three other women also interviewed for the story said Moore pursued them when they were between 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s but never had sexual contact with them. "This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation". He did not say what he was going to do about them.

Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. According to John Bennett, the spokesman for the Alabama secretary of state's office, even if the state Republican Party notifies the secretary of state that it has withdrawn its nomination of Moore, his name will remain on the ballot.

Meanwhile, House Speaker Paul Ryan stated that the allegations against Moore are "disqualifying if true".

Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones in the special election for Alabama's open Senate seat which was held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions until earlier this year. Then-Gov. Robert Bentley appointed unusual in the interim. "I believe this is Doug Jones, some of his doings, you know".

Mueller interviews Stephen Miller in Russian Federation investigation
Miller helped #45 pen a memo back in May laying out why Comey was getting shitcanned. He is one of Mueller's few interviewees now working in the Trump White House.

After winning his position back in 2012, he was again forced out after defying the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage by ordering probate judges not to give marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Details for this story were provided by the Cullman, Alabama, Times.

Most Senate Republican took an "if true" stance, as Talking Points Memo puts it - that is, saying that the women's accounts of their experiences are not enough to prompt calls for Moore's resignation, but that he should remove himself from the race if the accusations are legitimate.

The Senate candidate released a statement about Thursday's report in the Washington Post that he stands accused of inappropriate sexual behavior with a minor in 1979, questioning the allegations based on their timing since he's been in public service for more than 40 years and the political motivations of the paper, given that they have already endorsed his opponent.

Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. That's a fear national GOP strategists had even before Thursday's Post report, given how polarizing Moore is. Ed Stetzer, a pastor and church consultant who chairs the Billy Graham Center of Church, Mission and Evangelism at Wheaton College, summed up the insanity Ziegler's defense to The Washington Post. John McCain. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of".

Moore was removed from a 1996 custody case after he denied visitation rights to the children's mother, Suzanne Scott Borden, because she was a lesbian.
