GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore previously ruled lesbian couldn't see kids unsupervised

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

Top Republicans in Washington said their candidate in Alabama's Senate race, former state Chief Justice Roy Moore, must drop out of the election if allegations that he enticed an underage girl into a sexual encounter decades ago are true. Although Moore appealed the recusal, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff, and the case was heard without Moore.

Sorry to politicize a truly disgusting action, but hey, if it gets Roy Moore-who, according to The Root's politics editor, Jason Johnson, is a Breitbart-approved, "virulently bigoted, white-supremacist-sympathizing, Jeff Sessions-patterned candidate"-so the better".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that Moore should drop out of the race "if these allegations are true". Although one told the Post that Moore had ordered her cocktails when she was below the legal drinking age, there were no other accusations of illegal behavior.

In the bombshell story on Thursday, an Alabama woman alleges Moore, who was 32 at the time, pursued a sexual relationship with her when she was 14 years old. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, say that he needs to hit the road.

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 United States attorney general.

Moore supported the Alabama Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act, a bill that gave Alabama police the right to arrest anyone they suspected of not being an American citizen until that person could "prove" his or her citizenship.

"The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling", Gardner said in a prepared statement.




Moore's resignation is made all the more unlikely by the fact that he's publicly called these allegations "fake news", in an attempt to throw doubt on the women's claims.

"Even if you accept the Washington Post's report as being completely true, it's much ado about very little", Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler told the Montgomery Advertiser. If that happens, McConnell and other Republicans would face the challenge of figuring out which candidate would run in Moore's place - and how to win an election in which it is too late to replace the former judge's name on the December 12 ballot.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said Thursday ballots have already been printed.

A group close to McConnell that spent millions of dollars to oppose Moore in the primary called on Gov. Kay Ivey, R, and the state party to investigate the allegations.

Unusual didn't respond to questions from reporters Thursday.

"If there's even a shred of evidence to these accusations, Gov. Ivey and the Alabama Republican Party need to do everything in their power to remove Judge Moore from the ballot, " Steven Law, president and CEO of the Senate Leadership Fund, said in a statement. "There is no place in our party for sexual predators". Lee said in a statement: "If these allegations are true, Judge Moore should resign".
