Franken, Moore assault allegations dredge up accusations against Trump

Moral failure: Alabama pastors support Roy Moore, blame the victims, claim women are the real sexual predators in the "war on men".

"We need Judge Moore to stand up to the LGBT transgender mafia", Leiter said.

Ivey said today she was bothered by the allegations against Moore, but had to weigh all the available information.

Alabama voters will go to the ballot box on December 12 to choose between Moore and Democrat Doug Jones.

Noting that Moore liked to work out at the local YMCA shirtless, Delores Abney, 63, said she recalled Mr. Moore hitting on young women who "appeared to be high school on up" who were taking part in her exercise class.

Despite multiple credible allegation of sexual assault and harassment against Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore, many conservative Christian pastors, both inside and outside the state of Alabama, are supporting the GOP candidate.

Several other women have since emerged to accuse Moore of inappropriate conduct, but none of them was underage at the time.

On a second "meet", Corfman said, Moore "laid out some blankets on the floor of his living room and proceeded to seduce" her, touching her inappropriately and eventually trying to get her to touch him. "At 14 I was not able to make those kind of choices".

Asked if Alabamians should vote for Moore instead, she brought up more Democrats.

The good news is that many Republicans have called for his removal from the race, and more continue to do so every day.

He continued, "I understood that I wouldn't sign but I also wouldn't perform in Israel - and that seemed like I was acting scared. Cave, however, explained he believes the movement is an attempt to bully musicians and artists by removing their expression.

Moore's candidacy has left GOP officials in a bind, especially after GOP Gov. Kay Ivey said she will not postpone the election and will vote for Moore.

The Post's coverage arguably shaped subsequent coverage of Roy Moore, leading other reporters to draw inferences for which there was no evidence.

The Alabama Republican Party issued a statement standing by Moore and refusing to strip him of the party's nomination.

Last week, Moore's wife, Kayla, released a letter of support that was signed by 53 Alabama pastors that stated he was an "immovable rock in the culture wars".

"It looks pretty bleak", said one national GOP aide who asked for anonymity to frankly discuss the race. "So that's what I plan to do, vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore".
