Republicans must turn their backs on Roy Moore

  • Alabama GOP nominee for Senate Roger Moore

The story also quoted three other women who said Moore dated them when they were between 16 and 18 years of age and he was in his early 30s, though none said they had sexual contact with Moore.

Three other women, who were all in their teens at the time, told the paper that Moore made advances on them as well.

The Republican National Committee continues to be a part of the joint fundraising agreement with Moore's campaign and the Alabama Republican Party. Other Republican Senate leaders, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., have called on Moore to step down on the condition that the reports prove to be true, but they have not yet described a process for assessing the truth of the claims.

Germans break internet as Twitter switches to 280 characters
Some users have long fought for the extended tweet, claiming 140 was simply not enough to get their point across. However, these users don't have trouble with the 140-character limit due to the density of their languages.

Harris' congressional office referred questions to his campaign, which did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

The results also suggested that a write-in campaign by another Republican could tip the seat to Democrats - a prospect that once seemed far-fetched in deep-red Alabama.

Zeigler said that even if the allegations against Moore are true, it's "much ado about nothing". Much of the Republican establishment - including McConnell and President Donald Trump - supported unusual, while the GOP's more conservative flank - including former Trump strategist Steve Bannon - backed Moore. As senators headed in for an afternoon vote on a Transportation Department nominee, reporters swarmed Republicans in a bid to get their reaction. In the event of a win by Jones, the slim Republican Senate majority could get even slimmer. "They're just using it as a weapon, a political weapon".

Packages sent to Scottish Parliament 'not suspicious'
Earlier part of the Scottish parliament building had been evacuated after the discovery of white powder sent to Conservative MSPs. A Scottish Parliament spokesman said: "An incident has occurred requiring the evacuation of the MSP building at Holyrood".

If, however, the state party tells election officials that it wants to withdraw its nominee, or if Moore himself chose to do so, election officials would not certify any votes cast for Moore. Alabama voters who routinely cast votes for Republicans would presumably take a second look at the ballot, remember that the GOP has withdrawn its endorsement of Moore, and write in unusual instead.

Reynolds supports Moore and says if the candidate steps down now, that would mean surrendering to Democrat Doug Jones.

Alabama's state auditor, Jim Zeigler, is defending anti-LGBT U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore against allegations of sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl by saying Mary, believed by Christians to be the mother of Jesus Christ, was a teenager when she married her husband, Joseph. And it's also possible that after some initial discomfort, an bad lot of Alabama Republicans will find their way clear to voting for Moore anyway, particularly if he and his defenders continue to hang tough. "I believe they are politically motivated and are brought to stop a very successful campaign", he asserted. Corfman never filed a police report or a civil suit, the Post said.

Henry, R-Hartselle, who represents a portion of Cullman County, said he suspects the timing of the stories told by five women about Moore's alleged sexual advancements 40 years ago, as told to The Washington Post, are politically motivated as the December 12 special election nears. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. Other lawmakers have called on Moore to leave the race.
