Judge Roy Moore, the Alabama Republican Senate candidate looking to fill now-Attorney General Jeff Session's seat, is being accused of sexually assaulting a girl when he was in his 30s and she was a teenager.
The Washington Post reported Thursday that Leigh Corfman is accusing Moore of taking her to his home and inappropriately touching her in 1979 when she was 14. The Post says it also found three other women who claimed Moore dated them around the same time when they were teenagers, although those women are not claiming assault.
Moore's campaign denies the allegations, saying they are "completely false and are a desperate political attack" by the Democratic Party and The Washington Post. Arizona Senator Jeff Flake is waiting to see if the allegations prove credible, but says his trust of Moore is on a very short leash.
"Those stories are appalling, just appalling," said Flake. "If there's any shred of truth, he ought to step aside immediately."
Alabama's other sitting senator Republican Richard Shelby is also calling for a close look at the assertions. "It's a devastating, nasty story," he stated. "If that's true, I don't believe there'd be any place for him in the U.S. Senate."
AFA Action has endorsed Moore, who is seeking the Senate seat vacated when Jeff Sessions became U.S. Attorney General. AFA Action vice president Rob Chambers says they're standing by Moore unless and until the charges are proven.
"AFA Action believes Justice Roy Moore to be a truthful man and a solid Christian. Based on his statement of denial, we are proud to stand by our endorsement of Justice Roy Moore," Chambers told OneNewsNow.
The Moore campaign also noted that The Washington Post, which broke the story, has endorsed his opponent in the race. Steve Bannon, the former White House strategist who is now executive chairman of Breitbart news, wondered last night if it was merely "a coincidence" that "the Bezos-Amazon-Washington Post that dropped the dime on Donald Trump, is the same Bezos-Amazon-Washington Post that dropped the dime this afternoon on Judge Roy Moore."
The special election in Alabama will take place on December 12.
