Trump stands by endorsement of Roy Moore, suggests women are lying

Sean Hannity

Alabama's biggest newspaper on Sunday urged voters to "Stand for decency, reject Roy Moore" in an editorial about the controversial Republican Senate candidate whose campaign has been engulfed by sexual assault allegations.

In the November poll, 38 percent of likely voters said they believed the allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore were true, compared to 37 percent who did not. "He totally denies it".

Ms Corfman originally told the Washington Post how she was approached by Mr Moore outside a courthouse in Etowah County in 1979.

In the almost two weeks since the White House put out this statement, five more women have come forward with allegations against Moore.

Moore, a former chief justice of the state Supreme Court, has vehemently denied the allegations and has railed against GOP leaders and the media for the outsized attention given to the claims.

Several other women have come forward to accuse Moore of inappropriate sexual advances that happened when they were teenagers.

Kilmeade noted that Moore has lost support among most Republicans and from the RNC. "Roy Moore should find something else to do".

"It's not that complicated, Ted Cruz: we're talking about potentially elevating a man who preyed on young girls to the U.S. Senate", stated a recent campaign fundraising email.




Nonetheless, some faith leaders still support Moore, arguing that he's a better fit than his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.

Democratic strategist Doug Thornell said candidates opposing Republicans are wise to make use of Moore's behavior and refusal to step aside.

Trump has yet to formally endorse Moore, but during a daily briefing with reporters, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked directly whether Trump wants Moore to win the Senate seat. The election is to fill the last three years of the Senate seat once held by Jeff Sessions, who resigned from it to join President Donald Trump's Cabinet as attorney general, the country's top law enforcement position.

As Republican senator Susan Collins said she hoped voters would "choose not to elect him", The Birmingham News went to press with an editorial saying the election was a "turning point for women in Alabama" and described the allegations as "horrifying, but not shocking".

She said she had been sitting with her mother on a bench awaiting a child custody hearing in her parents' divorce case. "I think it's a very special time, a lot of things are coming out and I think that's good for our society and I think it's very very good for women", the president said.

"Most Alabamians haven't voted for a Democrat for U.S. Senate in a generation", said Zac McCrary, an Alabama-based pollster for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
