McConnell Calls On Roy Moore To 'Step Aside'

She says he offered to give her a ride home after work one night but instead pulled the auto over and groped her.

Moore, too, has tried to raise money from the controversy, writing in a fundraising pitch that the "vicious and sleazy attacks against me are growing more vicious by the minute". I tried fighting him off while yelling at him to stop. I continued to struggle. "I was terrified. He was also trying to pull my shirt off". "I think he did cocaine". "In the next few days there will be revelations about the motivation and the content of this article", he stated, adding, "I do not expect the Washington Post to stop. I had tears running down my face". The newspaper's story, included an on-the-record account from Corfman, now in her 50s, and from the three other women who said Moore pursued them as well. I am the District Attorney of Etowah County. He told supporters, "I'm counting on you to stand with me at this critical moment by chipping in a donation to help me bust through the vicious lies and attacks and get the truth out to as many voters as possible before December 12".

"I did nothing to encourage this behavior", Nelson said.

Todd's "orchestrated" assessment referred to the way Capitol Hill Republicans responded, nearly in unison, to The Washington Post's report that four women claim Moore inappropriately touched, kissed or tried to date them when they were teens and he was in his 30s.

Earlier in the interview, Moseley noted that he has known Moore for 20 years and has covered his campaigns.

In response, Moore and his campaign say that he "has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone".

Moore fully denies the allegations, calling them "completely false" and threatening to sue The Washington Post, which first published the women's stories.

There was no immediate reaction from Moore, 70, about McConnell's call for him to end his candidacy.

Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, said Monday that Roy S. Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama, "should step aside" and that he believes the women who have accused Mr. Moore of sexual misconduct when they were teenagers. "It's his responsibility to step forward and say more and do more when it comes to the situation in Alabama", Durbin, D-Ill., said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Moore has come under increasing pressure from GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill to step aside prior to the December 12 special election in Alabama.

But the state party and many other Alabama Republicans have not wavered in their support of Moore, who scored a decisive primary victory in September over Luther Strange, who was appointed to fill the Sessions seat on an interim basis and was supported by President Donald Trump.
