Behold the GOP's Horrific Spectrum of Excuses for Roy Moore

  • U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore speaks to students at American Christian Academy in Tuscaloosa

Corfman said while they waited, Moore allegedly asked her for her phone number which was said to have been used later to fix a time in order to pick her up and bring her to his apartment where he misbehaved with her.

But at least two members of the GOP are standing firmly by Moore's side.

Marion County GOP Chair David Hall also didn't seem to think the allegations against Moore were relevant. But we're talking something that somebody said happened, 40 years ago.

"Roy Moore was already a big problem, and now in the short term he is going to be an even bigger problem", said John Weaver, John Kasich's chief strategist in the 2016 presidential primaries.

Former Alabama chief justice and U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore on September 26, 2017.

Moore and Jones are competing for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions when he joined the Trump administration.

One of the women claimed Moore initiated sexual contact with her when she was only 14 and he was 32.

Moore called the accusations "a political attack" by Democrats.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying", McCain said in a statement. "It's 'He said, she [said],'" Hannity charged.

Bannon reacted to the report in a speech in New Hampshire on Thursday evening comparing it to the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape first published by the Washington Post in which Trump was recorded bragging about groping women. Moore denied the allegations, but Senate Republicans reacted with shock to the report, and said the GOP nominee should consider stepping down from the race.

In recent years, Moore has also argued that Muslims should be prohibited from serving in Congress, that homosexuality is "an inherent evil" and that evolution does not exist. "Also take Joseph and Mary".

"Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter", he said.

While several Republicans spoke about Moore asking him to step down from the race, Alabama state auditor Jim Ziegler, a Moore ally, came to the Republican's defense and told the Washington Examiner: "There is nothing to see here". "Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist", Ziegler says, choosing his words carefully before invoking Christ.

"There's just nothing immoral or illegal here", Ziegler concluded.

"Maybe she just needs to take a polygraph test".

"Let's not forget, these are the exact same people that routinely accuse Mohammed of being a paedophile", German counter terrorism expert Peter R. Neumann tweeted in response to Zeigler's comments. And other high-profile Alabama politicians also distanced themselves from Moore, though nearly all included the "if the allegations are true" caveat.

But while most Republicans stressed that the allegations needed to be proven before Moore should step down, Sen.

Subscribers to that phrase included the majority leader, Mitch McConnell; the senior senator from Alabama, Richard Shelby; Senator Ted Cruz of Texas; and Susan Collins, senator from Maine.
