Roy Moore releases statement denying sexual encounter allegations

Alabama official uses Bible to condone sexual misconduct Mitt Romney blasts Roy Moore as 'unfit for office'

Going forward, the committee's fundraising will benefit Moore's Senate campaign, the Alabama Republican Party, and the Republican National Committee but not the NRSC.

The Alabama lawmaker said Moore is a threat to "establishment" lawmakers on the national level, including in the Republican Party. The seat previously belonged to Jeff Sessions, who's now serving as Trump's attorney general in Washington. Moore's candidacy was heavily promoted by former Trump strategist Steve Bannon, who has vowed to support grassroots challengers next year to take on Republican incumbents. "Like most Americans the president believes we can not allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person's life".

Washington Republicans have called for Moore to step aside if the allegations are true. He has denied the allegations in a written statement, and in an email to his supporters, he said he meant to stay in the Senate race to fight the "forces of evil".

Roy Moore's brother is defending the GOP Senate candidate "to the hilt" amid the escalating controversy over allegations of sexual misconduct against him, according to CNN correspondent Martin Savidge, who spoke to the brother on the phone.

As NPR reported last night, Moore, who was removed as Alabama's chief justice twice for his refusal to comply with federal court decisions, shows no signs of being inclined to leave the race. During a second incident, Corfman says Moore allegedly took off her clothes and touched her over her underwear.

"Right now there is a lot of accusations being made against a lot of people", said Randall Mccaffrey.

Three other womensaid that Moore asked them on dates when they were between the ages of 16 to 18, and that when two of them actually went on the dates, it never went beyond kissing. His campaign denied the report as "the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation".

Moore explained that he rejects calls for him to recuse himself from the Senate race because he "had nothing to do with this".

Brinkley cited a failed drug test and unapproved travel, stemming from a 2008 gun and drug case. He was then placed on probation for five years , a period that has been extended several times.

In response to that, Lipinsky said, "To suggest that if the allegations are true they don't amount to much is really disturbing". Much of the Republican establishment - including McConnell and President Donald Trump - supported odd, while the GOP's more conservative flank - including former Trump strategist Steve Bannon - backed Moore.

"In a statement, Moore's campaign chairman, Bill Armistead, said, 'Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today's Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake".

The statement also notes that Moore has been married to the same woman for 33 years and has four children and five grandchildren.

Bennett says the party and candidate can revoke the Republican's nomination, but his name would appear regardless, because a key deadline has already passed.

It's a bittersweet moment for some Republicans who thought Moore never should have been the party's nominee.

In Washington, Republican senators responded to the report with shock and dismay, telling reporters that if the claims were true, Moore should exit the race immediately. Renato Mariotti, a candidate for IL attorney general, tweeted: "Sean Hannity tries to excuse the sexual assault of a 14-year old girl by Roy Moore by saying it was 'consensual.' Does he have no shame at all?" They included the White House, the head of the House Freedom Caucus Mark Meadows, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Texas Sen.

The accusations were made in a report in The Washington Post on Thursday. A three-way race - with Moore, Jones, and interim Sen. As senators headed in for an afternoon vote on a Transportation Department nominee, reporters swarmed Republicans in a bid to get their reaction.
