Poll Shows Alabama Race Tied After Allegations Against Roy Moore

Roy Moore now says he doesn't remember if he pursued teen girls in his 30s

Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, accused of sexual misconduct decades ago with teenage girls, is "unfit for office", according to Mitt Romney.

"These allegations are completely false and misleading but more than that it hurts me personally, you know- I'm a father", Moore said in an interview with Sean Hannity.

On Thursday, the Washington Post reported that Moore had engaged in sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.

Alabama's Republican national committeeman says allegations of sexual impropriety against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore are a "sinister" attempt to derail his candidacy. "Even the Washington Post report says that he never had sexual intercourse with any of the girls and never attempted sexual intercourse".

The Post reported that Moore, then 32, first approached 14-year-old Leigh Corfman in early 1979 outside a courtroom in Etowah county, Alabama. The Moore campaign has denied the charges.

Taking it a step further, Ziegler called Moore "clean as a hound's tooth" and cited the former judge's long and "wonderful" married life as proof of his good character. When asked if voters could write in Roy Moore, Doug Jones, or Sen.

But despite these things Republicans, including top elected officials here in North Dakota, insisted on giving Moore the benefit of the doubt.

Utah's senators, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, joined a chorus of Republican senators on Thursday in calling for Moore to step aside if the allegations are true. A handful of other women came forward to describe similarly inappropriate sexual encounters with Moore, as well, claiming they were between the ages of 16 and 18 at the time.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying", McCain tweeted.

A one-vote Jones margin, of course, gives him a Senate seat, so one way of looking at this is that an already-vulnerable GOP candidate may have been dealt a deadly blow even if a big majority of Republican voters don't believe the Washington Post allegations or don't care if they are true.

Harris' congressional office referred questions to his campaign, which did not respond to multiple requests for comment. But as NPR's Jessica Taylor notes, "The Alabama Republican Party and the Republican National Committee remain fundraising partners with Moore, per the agreement".

The CNN anchor countered that the Washington Post reporters were down in Alabama doing a profile and ended up tracking down rumors.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill says Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's name can not be removed from the ballot this close to the election. Luther Strange in the GOP primary in September to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He was considered a heavy favorite in deeply Republican Alabama in the December 12 special election to fill the seat of US Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Henry said he believes Moore's accusers have been stoked by the Democratic Party and may be paid money eventually for their actions.

Others, Democrats and Republicans alike, said that the nominee should step aside if the accusations have any truth behind them.

On several occasions, Moore has made controversial statements and taken positions that have cost him his job. In the past, Moore has said that "homosexual conduct" should be illegal and has compared such acts to bestiality.

Ziegler also noted, in defense of Moore, that Moore married a woman who is younger than him - he was 38 and his wife 24 when they married.
