Alabama Official Uses Bible to Defend Senate Candidate Roy Moore

Roy Moore Being Persecuted Like Jesus, Says Brother After Child Abuse Allegation

Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, accused of sexual misconduct decades ago with teenage girls, is "unfit for office", according to Mitt Romney. At the time, Moore was in his early 30s.

Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, have also said Moore should quit the race if the allegations are true.

In Washington at least, few Republicans came to Moore's defense in the hours after the report was published. The NRSC did not respond to requests for comment.

The group had been part of a fundraising committee that includes the Alabama Republican party and the Republican National Committee.

Several officials, including President Trump, have said Moore should drop out of the race if the allegations are true.

It remains to be see whether Thursday's allegations can buoy Jones' long-shot bid, which would represent a major upset for Democrats and narrow Republicans' current edge in the Senate.

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.

The Moore campaign is denying the Post report as "the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation".

The Republican lawmaker questioned the timing of the accusers coming forward, stating that one "cannot tell me there hasn't been an opportunity through the years to make these accusations with as many times as he's (Moore) run (for office) and been in the news". Luther Strange, R-Ala., who lost the GOP primary to Moore. "If he can't disprove the charges in a brief period of time, then he should step aside".

Protecting the Facebook community is more important than "maximizing our profits", Zuckerberg said on the call. Facebook shares that ended the day up 1.4 percent to $182.66 but retreating in after-market trades to $179.25.

"I'm not buying it", Henry said.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying", said Arizona Sen.

Jerry Moore firmly denied the allegations against his brother and drew an analogy between his situation and the persecution of Jesus Christ, Savidge reported Friday in an interview with CNN's John Berman. But this story is more important than just another Bible-thumper caught with his trousers down.

Ivey said she would vote for Moore, who is up against Democrat Doug Jones in a December 12 special election, but has a policy of not offering endorsements.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks at event to sign a proclamation honoring veterans at the Hyatt Regency Danang Resort in Danang, Vietnam, Friday, Nov. 10, 2017.

"There's a very odd propensity of sexual allegations to suddenly become politically useful in the run-up to an election, or when someone stands up for the principles of the republic, like Clarence Thomas, and needs to be taken down", said Sebastian Gorka, a former White House adviser who became a Fox News contributor this week. When I asked Congressman Kevin Cramer about Moore's problems he said he didn't know much about them, a claim which (as I wrote in my column) strains credulity.

But any write-in campaign would be an uphill battle and end up splitting the GOP vote, making it easier for Democrat Doug Jones to win in an upset.

Doster, the adviser to Moore, said the candidate's campaign chairman, Bill Armistead, had talked to members of Alabama's congressional delegation after the news broke.

Moore was twice removed from his state Supreme Court position, once for disobeying a federal court order to remove a 5,200-pound granite Ten Commandments monument from the lobby of the state judicial building, and later for urging state probate judges to defy the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage.
