New accuser claims sexual assault by Moore in 1970s

McConnell Calls for Roy Moore to Drop Out of Senate Race Mitch McConnell Tells Roy Moore To Leave Senate Race, Says 'I Believe The Women'

Todd's "orchestrated" assessment referred to the way Capitol Hill Republicans responded, nearly in unison, to The Washington Post's report that four women claim Moore inappropriately touched, kissed or tried to date them when they were teens and he was in his 30s. 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.

"No. But again, if, you know, Roy Moore had stolen a lawnmower when he was 21, that's bad, but that's not a reason, 50 years later, to all of a sudden, you know, throw him off the ballot or let Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellMcConnell expects Paul to return to Senate next week Former Hill staff calls for mandatory harassment training Gaming the odds of any GOP tax bill getting signed into law MORE pick the next senator of Alabama", Moseley said.

"Mr. Moore attacked me when I was a child", Nelson said, adding that she was 15 when he began flirting with her and 16 at the time of the alleged assault.

When the Post's story first broke last Thursday, McConnell had said Moore should step aside if the allegations were true.

But the state party and many other Alabama Republicans have not wavered in their support of Moore, who scored a decisive primary victory in September over Luther Strange, who was appointed to fill the Sessions seat on an interim basis and was supported by President Donald Trump.

Moore tried to raise money from the controversy, writing in a fundraising pitch sent about midafternoon that the "vicious and sleazy attacks against me are growing more vicious by the minute".

The crossfire escalated a GOP civil war over Moore's Senate candidacy in a December 12 special election, which until last week's allegations was viewed as an inevitable Republican win in the deep-red state. These allegations came four and a half weeks before the general election on December 12.

"I did nothing to encourage this behavior", Nelson said. He has denied the allegations and has said he plans to remain in the race. But, having said that, he hasn't been proved guilty.

Moore is an outspoken Christian conservative and former state Supreme Court judge. Losing the special election to a Democrat would imperil Republicans' already slim 52-48 majority. John McCain, R-Arizona, have said the same, among others. "Because there are groups that don't want me in the United States Senate", he said, naming the Democratic Party and the Republican establishment and accusing them of working together. And not for the party, but for the American people.
