What's Next for Roy Moore? I Have a Guess

"If these allegations are true, he must step aside", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday.

Four women have told the Washington Post that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore pursued them when they were teenagers - between the ages of 14 and 18 - and he was in his 30s.

Unusual told BuzzFeed News reporter Emma Loop that he had "just seen" the report Thursday afternoon, and will soon make a longer statement on the allegations.

The Washington Post article alleges that Mr Moore, who was then an assistant district attorney, struck up a conversation with Ms Corfman when she was 14.

Three other women also told the newspaper they too were subjected to unwanted advances from Moore when they were teens.

Wendy Miller told the Washington Post that Moore first approached her when she was 14 years old, and asked her on dates when she was 16 years old.

Of course, Moore has defined himself as being opposed to everything that McConnell and the national Republican establishment stands for, and, at least at first, judging from his campaign's reply to the story, Moore seems to be determined to brazen things out on familiar lines.

Pollak continued, "If this story is true - and I think any story of sexual misconduct especially with someone under age is very serious - why would The Washington Post wrap it with all kinds of perfectly legitimate relationships and with all kinds of political clutter?"

Moore is on the ballot in December, facing Democrat Doug Jones for the Senate seat vacated when Jeff Sessions became US attorney general. Big Luther Strange, who lost to Moore in the primary, is still there. Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado, who runs the National Republican Senate Committee, also put out a statement saying: "The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling".

"Roy Moore will be imperative to passing a conservative agenda, and we support him keeping this seat in Republican hands", Gardner said in a statement tweeted out by reporters after Moore had been declared the victor in a hard-fought primary. "At a subsequent meeting, also at his home, he touched her over her bra and underwear, then removed his clothes and had her touch him over his 'tight white" underwear, according to the account in the Post. "I'll stay out here with her, '" Corfman's mother, Nancy Wells, told the Post.

Although Moore's statement says that the story was fabricated and is "intentional defamation", there is no mention that he intends to take legal action.

Corfman says she pulled away and asked Moore to bring her home. The age of consent in Alabama is 16.

"The Judge has been a candidate in four hotly-contested statewide political contests, twice as a gubernatorial candidate and twice as a candidate for chief justice". Corfman gave him her phone number, she says, and the two made plans to meet.

To that end, WHNT News 19 has asked the Moore campaign multiple times to clarify which specific aspects of the Post's reporting on the Foundation for Moral Law are incorrect.
