Poll Shows Alabama Race Tied After Allegations Against Roy Moore

Alabama official uses Bible to condone sexual misconduct

The National Republican Senatorial Committee typically does not waste money on safe races like Alabama, and has made zero independent expenditures on Moore's behalf, according to FEC records. The information was in a filing to the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

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

The NRSC did not respond to requests for comment. The seat previously belonged to Jeff Sessions, who's now serving as Trump's attorney general in Washington.

"There's a very odd propensity of sexual allegations to suddenly become politically useful in the run-up to an election, or when someone stands up for the principles of the republic, like Clarence Thomas, and needs to be taken down", said Sebastian Gorka, a former White House adviser who became a Fox News contributor this week.

What is it about using Jesus to defend Moore from this allegation?

"If these allegations are true, he must step aside", McConnell said in a formal statement on behalf of all Republican senators.

On Thursday, The Washington Post published allegations by four women that Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and Moore was in his 30s. He referenced the Alabama controversy only briefly during an appearance Thursday night in New Hampshire. And when I say "serve alongside", I mean that literally.

Under Alabama law, a person who is older than 19 years of age and subjects someone under 16 but older than 12 to sexual contact would be guilty of Sexual Abuse 2nd degree, a Class A misdemeanor.

A 23-year-old is more seriously injured, a young man and another girl, aged 22 and 23, have lighter injuries. The three injured, one male and two female, are all at their early 20s, said the consulate.

"Well, I think most of the people in the state of Alabama would be very disappointed if someone who had been alleged to have engaged in that type of activity, had been proven that they had engaged in that activity, was continuing to represent them in any formal capacity", Merrill said. "They are two of the biggest goobers we have in Washington D.C.", Henry said. Three other women said he took them on dates when they were teenagers.

As of Friday morning, the senators' pictures still appear on the online link to Moore's fundraising appeal.

Moore beat Republican establishment-backed Sen. The women say they don't know one another.

"The Obama-Clinton Machine's liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I've EVER faced!"

"Well, that makes sense and I understand that, but I would counter what you're saying with the simple fact", Connors retorted. Much of the Republican establishment - including McConnell and President Donald Trump - supported unusual, while the GOP's more conservative flank - including former Trump strategist Steve Bannon - backed Moore. "Having read the detailed description of the incidents, as well as the response from Judge Moore and his campaign", Lee says, "I can no longer endorse his candidacy for the US Senate".

Zeigler also questioned the truthfulness of the allegation and noted Moore's strong denial. "You can't be a victim 40 years later, in my opinion".

It's too late for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's name to be removed from the ballot, even if he wants to drop out.
