Roy Moore vehemently denies sexual misconduct

Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist who backed Moore's candidacy, condemned the Washington Post as part of the "opposition party" after it made the allegations public.

"Like most Americans, the president believes we can not allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person's life", Ms. Sanders said.

Reynolds says the timing of the allegations in a report from The Washington Post is too coincidental, with only a month left in the campaign. And when I say "serve alongside", I mean that literally.

Others, Democrats and Republicans alike, said that the nominee should step aside if the accusations have any truth behind them.

"Humphrey Bogart started dating Lauren Bacall when she was a teenager", said state Auditor Jim Ziegler, referring to the then-19-year-old actress.

Three other women said they had similar experiences with Moore when they were teenagers. "This garbage is the very definition of fake news".

Defiant as ever, Moore himself issued a fundraising appeal asking for emergency donations in a "spiritual battle".

Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is telling potential donors in a new fundraising pitch that "the forces of evil are on the march in our country". "I just don't believe Roy Moore would do that".

Twitter to roll out 280-character tweets worldwide
As a result, Twitter has begun to roll out the new feature worldwide for every language where "cramming" was an issue. In September, the company finally announced the plan and started giving the long-tweet superpower to some test users .


Zeigler said that even if the allegations against Moore are true, it's "much ado about nothing".

"These allegations are completely false and misleading but more than that it hurts me personally, you know- I'm a father", Moore said in an interview with Sean Hannity.

Zeigler also questioned the truthfulness of the allegation and noted Moore's strong denial. "They're out to destroy him", Bannon continued, and then asked rhetorically: "Do you know why?" We'll get to the NRSC story in a monent, but it's set up by this interview from yesterday between the state's top election official, Secretary of State John Merrill, and CNN's Erin Burnett.

The revelations triggered a sharp backlash from would-be Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill, who called on Moore to quit the race if the allegations were true. "They're blessed with a wonderful marriage and his wife Kayla is 14 years younger than Moore", he said. A one-vote Jones margin, of course, gives him a Senate seat, so one way of looking at this is that an already-vulnerable GOP candidate may have been dealt a deadly blow even if a big majority of Republican voters don't believe the Washington Post allegations or don't care if they are true.

The state Republican Party has the power to disqualify Moore from the election, according to the Alabama secretary of state. His campaign has described them as a Democratic attempt to undermine his bid for the Senate, ahead of the special election on December 12. He's not going to like Roy Moore because Shelby was a Democrat for a long time.

Sens. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Jeff Flake of Arizona echoed those comments, and No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas calls the report "deeply troubling".

"If you're gonna step aside when you get a allegation you might as well not run because when you run you're gonna get an allegation", Moore declared. "I assume everybody has made some kind of mistake in life, but I wouldn't think he needs to step aside unless they prove that he is guilty of some bad sexual conduct". The age of consent in Alabama, where these events are said to have happened, is 16.
