Trump aide: White House won't support Moore if allegations are true

Adjust Comment Print

Moore himself has denied the allegations a "completely false and desperate attack".

Moore won despite being outspent by a margin of 10-to-1 by unusual.

On his Senate campaign website, Moore said he was suspended "for upholding the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman".

"I would vote for Judge Moore because I wouldn't want to vote for Doug", Pow said.

Merrill questioned the timing of the story to HuffPost, saying he thinks it's odd that the allegations against Moore are coming out now and that Alabama has many "outstanding news people" and "not one of those people has ever been able to" unearth the allegations the Washington Post reported Thursday. Alabama law lists the legal age of consent as 16. Three other women say Moore also pursued them in some manner while they were teenagers.

"The Washington Post has already endorsed the Judge's opponent, and for months, they have engaged in a systematic campaign to distort the truth about the Judge's record and career and derail his campaign". The statute of limitations on the felony charge would have run out in three years in 1979. Moore approached Corfman outside a courtroom in Alabama, the report said, while her mother was inside at a child custody hearing and struck up a conversation with her. "After over 40 years of public service, if any of these allegations were true, they would have been made public long before now".

Moore also issued a fundraising appeal asking for emergency donations in a "spiritual battle".

"The forces of evil are on the march in our country".

There may be no more bigger critic of Senate candidate Roy Moore and his beliefs than the LGBT community.

The general Republican talking point: If true, Moore should step aside.

Alabama Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Roy Moore speaks with reporters as he visits the U.S. Capitol on October 31.

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell is among the GOP leaders who have called on Moore to step aside.

There were, however, some Republicans willing to see Moore see out the rest of the race - and the allegations against him.

Ziegler went on to compare the allegations to biblical stories saying, "Also take Joseph and Mary".

"Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter", he said.

"I don't know how much validity these claims have to them", Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill told ThinkProgress Thursday.

Odd has reportedly left open the possibility he may re-enter the campaign. Experts have told USA media that Alabama's Republican Party or Moore himself could withdraw his name from consideration.

The former Alabama state supreme court chief justice, who was removed twice for defying court orders, has called for "homosexual conduct" to be criminalized and said 9/11 was God's revenge on the United States.
