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

Posted November 11, 2017

Moore has been defiant, insisting he would not quit the race for the December 12 special election for Attorney General Jeff Sessions' former seat.

The White House says President Donald Trump believes Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore "will do the right thing and step aside" if sexual misconduct allegations against him are true.

"Moore is unfit for office and should step aside", Mr. Romney, a former Republican presidential nominee and MA governor, tweeted.

"As far as we know, there's only one relationship that's been alleged that's problematic", Pollak said, referring to Moore's alleged sexual contact with a 14-year-old.

Moore denies the allegations.

Reynolds says the timing of the allegations in a report from The Washington Post is too coincidental, with only a month left in the campaign.

Moore is the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

Under ancient norms and apparently under first century Roman and Jewish law, she said, it was apparently common for girls 12 and older to be betrothed, though practice varied by region, social class and more. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of". Another three women also claim Mr. Moore pursued them as teenagers as well.

Moore himself has issued a fundraising appeal asking for emergency donations in a "spiritual battle". But removing the endorsement is a kind of middle ground, telling voters that they can still vote for Moore if they wish - but the GOP no longer recommends him. "Can the people of Alabama be tricked by the liberal fake news or not?"

Apple iPhone users experiencing glitch while using letter "I"
Other than the auto-correction anomaly expressed by the letter "i", it is definitely a step if not steps ahead its predecessor. Apple admits it's a problem and said the bug is impacting iPhone, iPad and iPod devices that are on iOS 11 or later.

Moore says he refuses to repeat their lies, and he's counting on the help of "God-fearing conservatives like you to stand with me at this critical moment".

The former GOP presidential nominee blasted the firebrand candidate in a tweet on Friday, breaking from the more cadenced rebukes of most Republicans.

Zeigler also questioned the truthfulness of the allegation and noted Moore's strong denial. This decision cuts off fundraising in both directions, but given the news of the last 24 hours, the NRSC is probably assuming that they wouldn't see much revenue on this stream.

Secretary of State John Merrill (R) told CNN "OutFront" host Erin Burnett that if the state GOP made the request, Moore would remain on the ballot but not appear as a Republican.

The revelations triggered a sharp backlash from would-be Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill, who called on Moore to quit the race if the allegations were true.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying", said Arizona Sen. In the event of a win by Jones, the slim Republican Senate majority could get even slimmer.

Bannon referenced Moore only briefly during an appearance Thursday night in New Hampshire, attacking The Washington Post as an "apparatus of the Democratic Party". Moore will face Democrat Doug Jones, a former USA attorney.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell added, "If these allegations are true, he must step aside". One of those women, Leigh Corfman, said she was 14 at the time. They did not have sexual intercourse, the Post said.

If the Bible is not clear on the subject, the law is: Alabama's legal age of consent then and now is 16 and adults can not touch children sexually or entice them into a home for that objective. And it's also possible that after some initial discomfort, an very bad lot of Alabama Republicans will find their way clear to voting for Moore anyway, particularly if he and his defenders continue to hang tough.
