Roy Moore releases statement denying sexual encounter allegations

Roy Moore releases statement denying sexual encounter allegations

While the bombshell child molestation allegations made against Judge Roy Moore have commanded headlines since they broke Thursday, it's not yet clear what affect they might have on his candidacy for the Alabama Senate seat.

A senior official in the USA state of Alabama has used the Bible to condone Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's reported sexual misconduct with minors and dismissed the furore over the allegations as "much ado about nothing".

The women cited in The Washington Post article said Moore had pursued them in the 1970s and 1980s when he was a lawyer in his early 30s.

The Republican National Committee continues to be a part of the joint fundraising agreement with Moore's campaign and the Alabama Republican Party.

The Moore campaign issued a statement Thursday calling the allegations "the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation".

The question this poll can not really answer is the level of detail about the allegations against Moore that voters absorbed the day they were released - presumably not a lot of Alabamians read the Washington Post - and whether the sheer creepiness of Moore's reported conduct came through.

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".

"(Senate Majority Leader Mitch) McConnell and (Arizona Sen.) John McCain, what they said about Moore ending his campaign just really gets to me. "They became parents of Jesus", Alabama state Auditor Jim Ziegler told The Washington Examiner. That could be just noise in a poll with a small sample size, but if it indicates Evangelicals (Moore's base) are reacting more strongly to the Post allegations than others, Moore is in bigger trouble than the overall numbers indicate. Moore bested the interim senator, Luther Strange, in a primary and runoff.

The problem, as readily became apparent from Moore's defiant statements, is that he isn't going to step aside. That's what I mean when I say opposition party, right?

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., a member of the GOP leadership, will not appear at a fundraiser for Moore next Friday in Albertville, Alabama that he had been billed as attending, according to an invitation shared with NBC News.

On Thursday evening, Hannity was on a radio show discussing the Post report. 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. They've never been denominated as having rights by the U.S. Supreme Court.

"The Bezos-Amazon-Washington Post that dropped that dime on Donald Trump, is the same Bezos-Amazon-Washington Post that dropped the dime [now] on Judge Roy Moore", Bannon said.

Dean Young, a longtime friend and adviser to Moore, said that Alabama voters would likely weigh the accusations against Moore with the sources that published them. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, who leads the Senate Democratic campaign arm. While reporting a story in Alabama about supporters of Moore's Senate campaign, a Post reporter heard that Moore allegedly had sought relationships with teenage girls.

Daniel Dale, a reporter for the Toronto Star, spoke with a number of Alabama Republican county chairs. He was removed as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court because of his efforts to block marriage equality in the state after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.
