Roy Moore to Sue The Washington Post

He has refused to leave the race and said on Twitter that McConnell was the person who should step down. She described a harrowing chain of events that ended with Moore attempting to force her into a sex act in a parked auto - an episode that, she said, left her with severe bruising on her neck. At first, she didn't think anything of what she alleged was Moore's "flirtatious behavior".

"I tried fighting him off and yelling", she tearfully recalled, but "instead of stopping, he began squeezing my neck and attempting to force my head into his crotch". "I was determined that I was not going to allow him to force me to have sex with him", Nelson said.

"He was also trying to pull my shirt off", the visibly upset Nelson continued. "And I just think he shouldn't be". I was twisting and struggling and begging him to stop.

"I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office".

"Mr. Moore attacked me when I was a child", Nelson said, recounting that Moore was a regular customer at a restaurant where she worked as a waitress when she was 15 and 16. I am the District Attorney of Etowah County. "If you tell anyone about this, no one will believe you".

Nelson and Allred say they'd like to see the Senate Judiciary Committee subpoena Moore to testify under oath, and that Nelson would be willing to do the same.

Nelson detailed her allegations in a statement alongside Allred, an attorney who focuses on discrimination and women's rights.

After giving remarks on tax reform efforts, McConnell was asked about the four women who have accused Moore of preying upon them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s.

Moore said a lawsuit will be filed over the Post report that detailed the allegations against him.

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

Two Republican lawmakers from IL have called on U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama to end his campaign in the wake of allegations of decades-old sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl. For one thing, the Post has conflated three other courtships with young women who were of the age of consent (in which no sexual activity occurred) with an actual accusation of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl.

A new report suggests that the Trump Administration might be looking at ways to appoint Attorney General Jeff Sessions to his old senate seat in order to quell the evolving controversy that surrounds Roy Moore. In September, Moore defeated Luther Strange, the Republican senator who had been appointed to fill Sessions' seat, in a Republican primary.
