Mitch McConnell: 'I believe the women' accusing Roy Moore

Posted November 14, 2017

To augment Nelson's story, she also shared a copy of her yearbook from that year, which Moore had signed just weeks before the alleged attack. The newspaper's story, included an on-the-record account from Corfman, now in her 50s, and from the three other women who said Moore pursued them as well.

Nelson says she and her husband supported President Donald Trump in the 2016 election and that her decision to come forward isn't about politics.

A new report suggests that the Trump Administration might be looking at ways to appoint Attorney General Jeff Sessions to his old senate seat in order to quell the evolving controversy that surrounds Roy Moore. I tried fighting him off, I yelled at him to stop, but instead of stopping, he began grasping my neck, attempting to force my head onto his crotch. "I think they have a political agenda, and I think they're running that agenda". "He has failed conservatives and must be replaced", Moore said. "I did not respond to any of Mr. Moore's flirtatious behavior".

"I did nothing to encourage this behavior", Nelson said.

She then fell out of the auto and he drove away. "In the next few days there will be revelations about the motivation and the content of this article", he stated, adding, "I do not expect the Washington Post to stop". "We've said this before and we'll say it again: Judge Moore is an innocent man and has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone".

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Madison, told CNN on Monday that she believes Moore's accusers.

Moore, a Republican, has painted the allegations and subsequent calls for him to step down - including from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell - as a politically motivated "witch hunt" against him.

On the Democratic side, one of the Senate's moderate members is helping Moore's challenger raise campaign funds, underscoring the party's wary approach in an Alabama race that until recently was viewed as a virtually certain win for the GOP. "I sometimes wonder, how much does it take for people to believe women in these instances?"

A new accuser said today that as a teenager in the 1970s she was sexually assaulted by Roy Moore in a locked vehicle, further rocking the Alabama Republican's race for an open Senate seat. Luther Strange, the loser to Moore in a party primary, he said, "We'll see".

Moore called allegations that he was involved with a minor child completely false and he threatened to sue over it.

Alabama will hold a special election on December 12 to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Even if Moore were to step aside, his name would likely remain on the ballot.
