Moore Sexual Harassment Claims; GOP Congress ignore Obamacare defunding

Posted November 10, 2017

A woman claims that Senate candidate Roy Moore initiated sexual contact with her when she was just 14-years-old, according to a report by the Washington Post.

"Well, that's getting the cart ahead of the horse. I've just seen it and I'll have more to say".

In his almost three decades of public service, Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has styled himself as one of the most religiously righteous politicians of the modern era. A special election will be held on December 12.

Moore is now running for the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Chairman Cory Gardner, who leads the Senate GOP campaign arm.

Roy Moore, a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, said during a debate on September 21 that "crime, corruption, immorality, abortion, sodomy, sexual perversion sweep our land".

Among the handful of Senate Republicans who have endorsed Moore, only Mike Lee of Utah weighed in on the allegations. Bennett says In such a scenario, even if Moore earned more votes than the Democrat, the state canvassing board would declare the Democrat the victor.

Neither Bannon nor the White House had an immediate comment. Corfman alleges that Moore approached her and her mother outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Alabama, offering to watch her while her mom went inside for a child custody hearing.

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. "On a second visit, she said, he took off her shirt and trousers and removed his clothes", and then, Corfman said, Moore touched her and had her touch him.

She said of Moore at the time: 'He was charming and smiley.' After both meetings, she says she asked Moore to take her home and he did. "He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear", the report states. "Whatever this is, just get it over".

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying", said Arizona Sen.

To that end, WHNT News 19 has asked the Moore campaign multiple times to clarify which specific aspects of the Post's reporting on the Foundation for Moral Law are incorrect. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of, ' McCain said in a statement. I think it's pretty clear cut.

The other way Moore could abdicate the ballot is through some form of legal action, but, since the current situation is unprecedented in Alabama politics, no one knows how that would work. Under Alabama law, such conduct would be sexual abuse in the second degree, although the statute of limitations would have long passed.

If the allegations were true, they would have come out during Moore's previous campaigns for Alabama judgeships, his campaign said in a statement, adding, "this garbage is the very definition of fake news".

Republicans, already reeling from the election losses they suffered on Tuesday, have only a two-seat majority in the Senate and are facing a handful of hard elections next year.
