Alabama may elect Moore anyway

Bill Clark  TNS

The Moore campaign denied the report as "the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation".

The charge that Moore initiated sexual conduct with a 14-year-old girl when he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney is attested to by her, on the record. Her account is too serious to ignore. Twice disbarred, and routinely disrespectful of the Constitution, Roy Moore was unfit for office before these allegations came out. John McCain. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of".

A number of GOP senators - and President Trump - have cautiously said that Moore should exit the race, if the allegations are true.

Zeigler, asked to respond to Lipinsky's comments today, stressed that he believes the story about Moore is not true and called the story a "hit piece".

Democrats familiar with the campaign being run by their nominee, Doug Jones, said no new ad buys or investments were planned to take advantage of the story. By Friday morning, Moore's allies were defending him and throwing doubt on his accusers, framing the story as a typical clash between conservatives and an untrustworthy media. "They're just using it as a weapon, a political weapon". Not to mention his contempt for the equal application of religious liberties. "And I believe the judge is telling the truth".

On Thursday night, Fox News host Sean Hannity apologized and said he "misspoke" when suggesting the alleged sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl by Senate candidate Roy Moore was "consensual".

Mr. Moore denied the allegations in an email to supporters on Thursday. The women say they don't know one another. "That's what I mean when I say opposition party".

Even if he were to drop out, his name would remain on the ballot, officials said. Cornyn said he wanted to know more before withdrawing his endorsement of Moore. Luther Strange as a write-in candidate - would favor Jones with roughly 44% of the vote, followed by Moore at 41%, and Strange at 12%.

Several senior Republicans called on Moore to quit the race after The Washington Post reported allegations of sexual misconduct. "Zechariah and Elizabeth for instance". Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. "They became parents of Jesus". Orrin Hatch's seat, should the Utah senator decide to retire ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at event to sign a proclamation honoring veterans at the Hyatt Regency Danang Resort in Danang, Vietnam, Friday, Nov. 10, 2017.

Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, said that he should drop out of the Alabama Senate race if the allegations are true.

That righteousness was in evidence yesterday when the state's auditor, Jim Ziegler, defended Moore against allegations he had groped a 14-year-old girl when he was a 32-year-old attorney. And the man he defeated in the Republican primary, current Sen. In the event of a win by Jones, the slim Republican Senate majority could get even slimmer.

To some conservative pundits, the lesson of previous scandals was that Republicans had been bullied too easily.

In the face of that stand-and-fight mentality by Moore, Republicans in Washington are left with a handful of bad - and likely ineffective - options.

"If it's true, the Republican Party doesn't have any place for pedophiles and he should step down immediately", said Josh Holmes, a McConnell confidant and his former chief of staff. "Steve Bannon is responsible", he added about the McConnell foil and former White House chief strategist, for enabling candidates such as Moore who are out of the GOP mainstream.

The statement also notes that Moore has been married to the same woman for 33 years and has four children and five grandchildren.

"This is a test of the people of Alabama and the people of this nation", said Young.
