Trump Backs Roy Moore for Senate Seat Despite Sex Allegations

To the editor: The single-issue voters pledging their support to Roy Moore, the Alabama GOP Senate nominee accused of sexual contact with a minor teenager, frustrate me.

During an appearance Monday morning on Fox News, Conway wouldn't directly say the words "vote for Roy Moore".

Corfman says she agreed to share details only after The Washington Post sought her out and gave her assurances she wasn't the only one accusing Moore of misconduct.

Now, should Kayla had been attending school at Gadsden State at the time of this recital, she still would have been much younger than Moore (18 to his 32, if she were a freshman) but not illegally so.

"When I was deputy district attorney, many years before we got married, I saw her at a dance recital and I was standing, oh, at the back of the auditorium and I saw her up front", he recalled at the time. Records show Moore passed the bar in September 1977.

Roy Moore has been accused of sexually harassing a number of women. "Long afterward, I would learn that Kayla had, in fact, performed a special dance routine at Gadsden State years before", he wrote.

The president maintained this stance when asked again whether or not he believes Moore.

In Alabama, Moore has repeatedly denied the accusations and rebuffed calls from prominent Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan and two former Republican presidential candidates, Mitt Romney and Senator John McCain, to end his candidacy in the December 12 election.

"It's very close to my heart", she said. Sessions told Congress last week he has "no reason to doubt" the women. Scott said he thinks there was "a strong possibility with a new candidate, a new Republican candidate, a proven conservative, that we can win that race".

"Ivey didn't have the guts" to postpone the election, according to the source, because she was afraid of being primaried by Moore in the 2018 gubernatorial election.

McConnell has said Moore would nearly certainly face a formal ethics complaint in the Senate if he were elected.

Barber, former head of the North Carolina NAACP, spoke at an anti-Moore rally at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, that drew more than 100 people.

Signs carried by Moore opponents at Saturday's rally decried his opposition to gay and transgender rights.
