Alabama official uses Bible to condone sexual misconduct

  • Roy Moore

Tommy Battle, the mayor of Huntsville, Ala., who's seeking the GOP nomination for next year's governor's race, said, "If the allegations are true, then he does not need to be the Republican candidate for Senate". Second: the NRSC's preferred candidate would have been current incumbent Luther Strange, and this might free them up to help fund a Luther write-in campaign. Jeff Sessions to serve as the USA attorney general.

"Like most Americans, the president believes we can not allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person's life", Ms. Sanders said.

That sentiment was later overwhelmingly echoed by other Senate Republicans who said that Moore should step aside if the claims were true, though Moore still appeared to have some support from Republicans who said that he would vote for Moore - whether the allegations were true or not.

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans publicly said Moore should step aside but only if the allegatons by the four women from the explosive Washington Post report are true.

Moore has denied the allegations and given no indication that he will exit the race.

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.

Moore himself was suspended as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2016 after refusing to comply with the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling.

Bannon is calling the Post an "apparatus of the Democratic Party" and notes it was among the first to report the "Access Hollywood" tape that caught Trump using sexually predatory language in 2005.

"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", she told the Post.

The Post reported Thursday that an Alabama woman said Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, had sexual contact with her when she was 14.

Instead, it could refocus its business around a core group of news and sports assets like Fox News and Fox Sports 1. CNBC's sources said any potential deal between Fox and Disney wouldn't have Disney buying all of Fox.

Others, Democrats and Republicans alike, said that the nominee should step aside if the accusations have any truth behind them.

"He dated her. He married her, and they've been married about 35 years". Three other women also told the Post that Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s. "This garbage is the very definition of fake news", he added.

Stewart came to the floor and told McConnell and odd that a statement was being sent to reporters.

Some prominent Republicans are calling on Moore to leave the race, but he does have his defenders, in addition to Zeigler.

In response to that, Lipinsky said, "To suggest that if the allegations are true they don't amount to much is really disturbing". John McCain, an Arizona Republican and former presidential candidate, said the same Thursday.

Officials in Alabama said the opinions of national Republican leaders would have little effect on the state party.

It's the distance that would matter to the state Republican party, and more so for the national party.

Several senior Republicans called on Moore to quit the race after The Washington Post reported allegations of sexual misconduct.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has said Donald Trump believes a "mere allegation", especially one from many years ago, should not be allowed to destroy a person's life.
