Republican Senate Fundraising Arm Bails on Roy Moore

Ed Henry on Moore accusations: I'm not buying it

Senate Republicans face a dire reality in Alabama following sexual misconduct accusations about Roy Moore, their Senate nominee in Alabama: They want Moore gone from the race but are largely powerless to make that happen.

In an extensive report published Thursday, The Post detailed the allegations against Moore by the then-14-year-old and three other girls who were between the ages of 16 and 18 when they said the incidents occurred.

The special election trakes place December 12.

Moore's Democratic challenger, former USA attorney Doug Jones, had little to say aside from an eight-word campaign statement: "Roy Moore needs to answer these serious charges".

"The allegations against Roy Moore were from about 39 years ago", Zeigler said.

In response to the allegations, Becky Ashley said: "I don't believe them at all".

In The Washington Post on Thursday, Leigh Corfman accused Moore, a Republican running for Senate in Alabama, of kissing and groping her when she was just 14 and he was 32. I think there's a good chance.

Opinion Savvy also tested Jones versus Moore with Luther Strange as a write-in candidate. The Trump administration too has distanced itself from the entire controversy.

Others in Alabama shrugged at the allegations.

"If these allegations are true, he must step aside", McConnell said in a statement. In the event of a win by Jones, the slim Republican Senate majority could get even slimmer.

Asked to clarify if Blunt was canceling on the fundraiser, she repeated, "He won't be in AL". "But in this case, it's so serious, and the fact it's backed up by other women and it's so ugly, I would say unless he can prove his innocence, the burden is on him within the next day or so, he should step down". Her account is too serious to ignore. "If he can't disprove the charges in a brief period of time, then he should step aside".

Moore has been defiant in the wake of the accusations.

"The defense from some of his supporters is beyond disgusting", Comstock wrote.

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. Senate Republicans moved en masse to distance themselves from their nominee nearly as soon as the news article was posted.

Those who think Moore should be replaced have little hope of that happening. He was twice removed from his Supreme Court position, once for disobeying a federal court order to remove a 5,200 pound granite Ten Commandments monument from the lobby of the state judicial building, and later for urging state probate judges to defy the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of", McCain tweeted.

Democrats, meanwhile, were quietly stepping up their mobilization efforts in Alabama, though being careful not to publicly ignite partisan backlash by attempting to capitalize on the troubling allegations.

Moore has held a 10-point lead in many polls, although his opponent, Democratic candidate Doug Jones was tied with Moore in a Fox News poll in October. Is Moore someone who does - or should - represent the Republican Party? A handful of senators suggested they would support unusual if he launched a bid, and odd told the Associated Press he would "do some more research" before ruling it out. "If they do, he will lose".
