Roy Moore vehemently denies sexual misconduct

Alabama Official Uses Bible to Defend Senate Candidate Roy Moore Distance: NRSC cuts off funding agreement with Moore campaign
Saul Franklin | 11 November, 2017, 01:09

Moore, an outspoken Christian conservative and former state Supreme Court judge, has denied a Washington Post report that he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl and pursued three other teenagers decades earlier as an assistant district attorney in his 30s. "Take Joseph and Mary", Ziegler said.

"He's clean as a hound's tooth", Ziegler told the Washington Examiner, noting that the very old Zachariah and much younger Elizabeth produced John the Baptist. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. "They became parents of Jesus".

Corfman told The Washington Post that Moore sought a relationship with her when she was 14 and at one point touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

Asked to clarify if Blunt was canceling on the fundraiser, she repeated, "He won't be in AL". Odd lost to Moore in the Republican primary runoff.

He first became a national figure in the early 2000s, when he lost his position as Alabama chief justice after refusing a court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from outside the courthouse.

Moore has denied the allegations and given no indication that he will exit the race. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, have also said Moore should quit the race if the allegations are true.

"The allegations are that a man in his 30's dated teenage girls".

Mr. Mowery cited Moore's overwhelming popularity with Alabama's Republican voters, who he said would tend to distrust allegations published in the Post.

But nationally, GOP leaders were less likely to defend Moore's actions and more likely to say the allegations were disturbing, without necessarily ruling on their veracity. "It involves a 14-year-old girl which I would have never had contact with". "Even those who followed ancient marriage customs, which we would not follow today, knew the difference between molesting and marriage".

In addition to Corfman, thee other women interviewed by The Washington Post allege Moore "pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18". "It's completely ludicrous to equate the sex assault of a minor with an ancient culture".

"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", she told the Post. It does say that Mary and Joseph did not have sexual relations before Jesus was born.

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.

Moore, who has made his moral and religious beliefs the heart of his pitch to voters, prevailed over several Republican opponents in a closely contested primary that saw Trump, Senator McConnell and most Senate Republicans support the incumbent who had been appointed to Sessions' seat, Luther Strange.

Moore explained that he rejects calls for him to recuse himself from the Senate race because he "had nothing to do with this".

"What these women are doing is such a shame", said Alabama Republican State Rep. Ed Henry in a Friday interview with Huntsville station WVNN-AM. The revelations come a month before the December 12 special election, and they're triggering a backlash from would-be Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill, who are calling on the 70-year-old conservative Christian to quit the race if the allegations are true.

They're all true. I wouldn't couldn't make this stuff up.
