White House urges Moore to leave Senate race if sex allegations true

  • Roy Moore now says he doesn't remember if he pursued teen girls in his 30s

In the wake of sexual misconduct allegations made against Senate candidate Roy Moore, one high profile Alabama politician is defending Moore.

The development, first reported by the Daily Beast, comes after the Washington Post published the accounts of four women who said Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. Three other women said he took them on dates when they were teenagers. Other Republican Senate leaders, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., have called on Moore to step down on the condition that the reports prove to be true, but they have not yet described a process for assessing the truth of the claims. But as NPR's Jessica Taylor notes, "The Alabama Republican Party and the Republican National Committee remain fundraising partners with Moore, per the agreement".

Moore has denied the allegations and given no indication that he will exit the race.

"I will hold judgment until we know the facts", Alabama Republican Gov. Kay Ivey said Thursday evening.

"I guess here's a question for you, if it came down in an election between a Republican who had been proven a child molester or a Democrat, would you vote for the Democrat?" "They're just using it as a weapon, a political weapon".

Officials in Alabama said the opinions of national Republican leaders would have little effect on the state party. Alabama voters who routinely cast votes for Republicans would presumably take a second look at the ballot, remember that the GOP has withdrawn its endorsement of Moore, and write in unusual instead. "Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist", Ziegler told the Washington Examiner.

Strange, despite the backing of President Donald Trump and much of the Republican establishment, lost a September primary to Moore.

A Washington Post report alleged that Roy Moore initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32, as well as other cases of sexual misconduct. "I believe they are politically motivated and are brought to stop a very successful campaign", he asserted.

The Bible does not state the ages of Joseph and Mary, agrees Margaret M. Mitchell, a professor of early Christian literature and the New Testament at the University of Chicago Divinity School.

Moore, now 70, has twice served as Alabama's chief justice.

Theologians and pastors, among others, expressed revulsion that Mary and Joseph would be used to counter allegations of sexual misbehavior with a minor. If that happens, McConnell and other Republicans would face the challenge of figuring out which candidate would run in Moore's place - and how to win an election in which it is too late to replace the former judge's name on the December 12 ballot. They did not have sexual intercourse, according to the report.

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.

Corfman told the Washington Post on Thursday that a 32-year-old Moore gave her alcohol, took off her clothes and molested her when she was 14 years old in 1979.
