GOP leaders bolt from Senate candidate Moore after sex claim

Roy Moore speaks to students at ACA in Tuscaloosa Wednesday

All of the others are of legal relationships with women who were of age at a time when Roy Moore was single. But since the report's publication, more than a dozen Republican lawmakers have called on Moore to drop out of his Senate race, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Gardner, who's heading the national Republicans' Senate campaign arm this cycle, endorsed Moore in September after he won the primary - a pitched battle between establishment Republicans backing odd and Moore supporters, including former top Trump strategist Steve Bannon - saying the NRSC has always been focused on "keeping a strong Republican majority in the Senate, and that includes Alabama".

Republican candidate Roy Moore greets supporters at the RSA Activity center in Montgomery, Alabama, US, September 26, 2017. Bombastic and defiant, underfunded, prone to controversial statements (including about Vladimir Putin), and railing against Washington elites, Moore was controversial even before the recent accusations.

One instance in particular, bravely shared by now-53-year-old Leigh Corfman, paints a particularly damning portrait of Moore when he was a young assistant district attorney in Alabama. The women were between the ages of 16 and 18 at the time.

"Judge Roy Moore is winning with a double-digit lead", his campaign said. Borden also signed an affidavit alleging while she was sitting outside his office, she heard Moore refer to gay people in a derogatory manner.

Moore also has a long history of incendiary comments on social issues.

"I thought, 'how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl, '" she told the Post.

Apple CEO Tim Cook slammed the ruling as "total political crap" and argued that there's "no reason for it in fact or in law". The Paradise Papers disclosures come as President Trump's administration seeks to overhaul the USA federal tax code.

Once Moore and Corfman were alone, the older man asked for her phone number. Luther Strange in a Republican primary. Moore offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.

Corfman said he removed her clothes, fondled her over her underwear, and, wearing only underwear himself, tried to get her to touch his penis.

His campaign also released a statement, asking why the allegations hadn't come out sooner, and calling it fake news.

Moore is running in a December 12 special election against Democrat Doug Jones, a former federal prosecutor, to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, who was appointed attorney general by President Donald Trump.

Pursuant to Alabama law, "a nomination for a candidate in a primary or general election shall be finalized by the respective state executive committees not later than 76 days before the primary or general election". She said she was thinking, "Please just get this over with". They did not have sexual intercourse, the Post said.

The Senate's GOP leader said if the report is shown to be true, Moore must step aside. He has been twice removed as chief justice of the state supreme court, first for refusing to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from the grounds of his courthouse and more recently for refusing to implement the U.S. supreme court ruling legalizing gay marriage.

He added, "My point is The Washington Post successfully put out a narrative out, at least on MSNBC and other places there's a pattern of teenagers".
