Mitch McConnell Tells Roy Moore To Leave Senate Race, Says 'I Believe The Women'
In an apparent effort to destroy the candidacy of Judge Roy Moore in the special election for U.S. Senate in Alabama, the liberal establishment Washington Post has accused Moore, the Republican nominee to replace former Senator Jeff Sessions (who resigned to become U.S. attorney general for President Trump), of dating teenage girls when he was in his early 30s.
"I call on Moore to step aside and remove himself as a distraction to Senate and House members so that they may continue focusing on serving the people in their states", he added.
Moore eventually stopped, Nelson said, and warned her no one would believe her if she shared her story.
Walker was asked in the Sunday interview if Moore should bow out of the race in the light of the allegations. I tried fighting him off, while yelling at him to stop, but instead of stopping he began squeezing my neck attempting to force my head into his crotch.
"A reporter said to me: 'What do you think of these online reports that say you had a love child in college?' Well, it wasn't true".
"You acknowledge sexual contact with a 14-year-old would have been illegal and would be considered sexual abuse by the books today.You make this argument that there wasn't a law against sexual abuse in Alabama back in the 70s", she said. At first, she didn't think anything of what she alleged was Moore's "flirtatious behavior".
"I did nothing to encourage this behavior", Nelson said.
He then let her out of the vehicle and he sped off. It said Moore is innocent and "has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone".
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for Moore to exit the race Monday morning, declaring he believed Moore's accusers and talking about a possible write-in campaign. "Allred was the attorney who claims credit for giving us Roe v. Wade which has resulted in the murder of tens of millions of unborn babies", Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead said in a statement released before Allred's press conference began. In September, Moore defeated Luther Strange, the Republican senator who had been appointed to fill Sessions' seat, in a Republican primary.
Nelson and Allred say they'd like to see the Senate Judiciary Committee subpoena Moore to testify under oath, and that Nelson would be willing to do the same.
He threatened to sue the Post over the weekend and said the allegations were a smear campaign by his political opponents. The Republican Senate campaign arm on Friday severed its fund-raising relationship with him for the special election to fill a seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became US attorney general earlier this year. "It's his responsibility to step forward and say more and do more when it comes to the situation in Alabama", Durbin, D-Ill., said on CNN's "State of the Union".
