Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore accused of sexually assaulting teen girl

  • Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey speaks to reporters on Nov. 7 2017 in Montgomery

The most jarring accusation comes from a woman who told the Post that Moore engaged in two sexually inappropriate meetings with her at age 14 when he was a 32-year-old district attorney.

"Two of Corfman's childhood friends say she told them at the time that she was seeing an older man, and one says Corfman identified the man as Moore". The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, who actively supported unusual, said in a statement: "If these allegations are true, he must step aside".

In his almost three decades of public service, Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has styled himself as one of the most religiously righteous politicians of the modern era.

"If these allegations are true, his candidacy is not sustainable", said Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the second-ranking Republican. Bombastic and defiant, underfunded, prone to controversial statements (including about Vladimir Putin), and railing against Washington elites, Moore was controversial even before the recent accusations. Wendy Miller says she was 14 and working as a Santa's helper at the Gadsden Mall when Moore first approached her, and 16 when he asked her on dates, which her mother forbade. "The legal drinking age in Alabama was 19", The Post reports.

The Post's Michael Scherer followed Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) in the final days of his primary campaign against Sen.

Moore came under fire for his extremely conservative positions and statements made over the years, including a 2006 suggestion that Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, shouldn't be seated because "Islamic law is simply incompatible with our law", and his contention that homosexuality should be illegal. The statue of limitations for bringing felony charges against Moore would have passed in the early 1980s, while civil action against him would have expired after Corfman turned 21. At that point, Corfman told the Post, she asked Moore to take her home, which he did. A few days later, Corfman says he picked her up at her home and drove her to his house, where he touched her over her bra and panties and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

Moore prevailed over several Republican opponents in a closely contested primary that saw US President Donald Trump, McConnell and most establishment Republicans back the incumbent, Luther Strange.

The report comes five weeks before Moore faces off against Democrat Doug Jones in the fiercely competitive special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became USA attorney general. Her mother went inside for a custody hearing and Moore offered to watch her, Corfman said.

Corfman says she "thought of confronting Moore personally for years" and that she nearly contacted the press with her story during Moore's first campaign for state Supreme Court in 2000. Per Alabama law, it is too late for Moore's name to be taken off the ballot.

The election is December 12. "Whatever this is, just get it over".

Moore denied the allegations, calling them "fake news".

Among the handful of Senate Republicans who have endorsed Moore, only Mike Lee of Utah weighed in on the allegations.
