Women Come Forward With Sexual Allegations Against GOP Senate Nominee Roy Moore

Poll Shows Alabama Race Tied After Allegations Against Roy Moore Alabama Official Uses Bible to Defend Senate Candidate Roy Moore

The group had been part of a fundraising committee that includes the Alabama Republican party and the Republican National Committee.

As pressure on Moore grew, it emerged from a Federal Election Commission filing that the National Republican Senatorial Committee is ending its fundraising agreement with him.

A growing chorus of Senate Republicans, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., have called on Senate candidate Roy Moore to withdraw from a special election in Alabama if allegations prove true that the former judge initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl almost four decades ago. They did not have sexual intercourse, according to the report.

On Friday, Moore told Sean Hannity, "These allegations are completely false and misleading".

A number of Republicans have gone on the record saying that, if the allegations are true, it would make Moore unfit to serve and he should step aside.

The question this poll can not really answer is the level of detail about the allegations against Moore that voters absorbed the day they were released - presumably not a lot of Alabamians read the Washington Post - and whether the sheer creepiness of Moore's reported conduct came through.

No matter what happens, Moore will remain on the ballot on December 12 since a candidate's name can not be removed within 76 days of the election, according to the office of Alabama's secretary of state.

Several officials, including President Trump, have said Moore should drop out of the race if the allegations are true.

The poll does show Moore losing support disproportionately among self-identified Evangelicals (a majority of Alabama voters), leading Jones in that demographic 58-37; he led by 68-28 in September.

"He won't be in AL next week", said Blunt spokesperson Katie Boyd.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying", McCain said.

And some Republicans have gone a bit further than their colleagues. I'll stay out here with her, ' " Corfman's mother, Nancy Wells, told the Washington Post.

Other Republican senators weighing in included Jeff Flake of Arizona, David Perdue of Georgia, John Thune of South Dakota, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Richard Shelby of Alabama and Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania. Sen. The Senate seat is now held by Sen. (The seat is now filled by Luther Strange, who was appointed interim senator after Jeff Sessions was picked to be President Trump's attorney general.) Seven senators sit in the immediate vicinity, either in front, behind, or directly next to the seat. "Let me do some more research", he told The Associated Press. A write-in campaign remains possible, Bennett added.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger called for Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside immediately, and the Senate should expel him if seated, following the recent sexual assault allegations made against him.

"I think Alabama would elect Satan if he could get Obamacare repealed", said Jonathan P. Gray, a Republican consultant in the state who is not working on the Senate race this year.

Meanwhile, Alabama voters seem to have a high tolerance for politicians trying to stick it out through controversy. Then-Gov. Robert Bentley appointed unusual in the interim.
