Mobile County GOP Chairman John Skipper, meanwhile, said he believed the accusations reported by the Post were "bunk" because if they were true, Skipper said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) - who opposed Moore in the state's Republican primary - would have publicized them.

'If these allegations are true, he must step aside, ' said McConnell of Kentucky, who had backed Sen.

On the same day news surfaced of sexual assault allegations against Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, CNN released a report after reviewing old court documents that show Moore ruled in the 1990s as a circuit judge that a woman in a divorce case who had a lesbian affair could not see her children unsupervised.

Odd 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.

But this wasn't the only incident the Washington, DC, publication uncovered involving Moore - three other women also came forward detailing their own accounts of Moore kissing them and offering them alcohol when they were between the ages of 16 and 18.

None of the other women said that Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual contact. "I'll stay out here with her, '" Nancy Wells, Corfman's mother, recalled to the Washington Post. He won the Republican nomination in September besting appointed incumbent Luther Strange by a margin of 55%-45% despite Strange's support from Donald Trump and the entire machinery of the Republican party.

Abe told reporters after the golf session that the two could talk frankly in a relaxed atmosphere while out on the course. Abe said he and Trump were able to "carry out in depth discussion, at times touching on various hard issues".

In his almost three decades of public service, Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has styled himself as one of the most religiously righteous politicians of the modern era.

The campaign says, "Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today's Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake". He was 32. She was supposedly 14.

But Alabama election law appears to indicate, with little ambiguity, that the deadline has passed for candidates to be replaced on the ballot. She remembers that Moore told her she was pretty, put his arm around her and kissed her, and that she began to feel nervous and asked him to take her home, which she says he did.

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. He has been a candidate in four hotly-contested statewide political contests, twice as a gubernatorial candidate and twice as a candidate for chief justice. The election is scheduled to take place December 12, which is only 33 days from Thursday.

He added, "I would point out what's interesting in The Washington Post article is that they say 'teenagers, ' in fact, you repeated that start of this segment". During a second visit to Moore's home, Corfman told the Washington Post, Moore removed his and her clothes, touched her over her underwear, and guided her hand to do the same over his "tight white" undergarments.

The two did not have intercourse, Corfman told the Post. The age of consent in Alabama is 16.
