Alabama may elect Moore anyway

Bill Clark  TNS

"Take Joseph and Mary", Ziegler said.

So what would this do for Republicans? Some Republicans conceded that Moore would likely suffer in the state's reliably, mainstream-Republican suburbs.

"Congressman Andy Harris owes it to his constituents and all decent Marylanders to withdraw his endorsement of Roy Moore", said Maryland Democratic Party spokesperson Fabion Seaton.

Opinion Savvy also tested Jones versus Moore with Luther Strange as a write-in candidate.

Bennett says In such a scenario, even if Moore earned more votes than the Democrat, the state canvassing board would declare the Democrat the victor.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Friday to end its agreement with Moore, which was set up in October, a day after The Post published a story in which a woman said Moore had initiated a sexual encounter with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32.

The chief fundraising vehicle for Republican Senate campaigns on Friday severed its ties to Roy Moore, the party's nominee in Alabama's special election next month.

Republican divisions are deepening over how to respond to the allegations, with national GOP leaders distancing themselves from Moore and calling for him to drop out of the race while officials in Alabama have largely stood by the candidate. "I just don't believe Roy Moore would do that". But most have said he should do so only if the accusations are proven true.

A senior official in the USA state of Alabama has used the Bible to condone Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's reported sexual misconduct with minors and dismissed the furore over the allegations as "much ado about nothing". The Post quoted four women on the record and had 30 sources in total.

"Yesterday, I made a statement that the allegations described in a Washington Post article against me about sexual impropriety were false".

World Cup victor Hope Solo accuses Sepp Blatter of sexual assault
The Guardian contacted the player to expand on what had happened and she told them: "I was in shock and completely thrown off". Blatter denied the incident took place and responded, via a spokesman, to say: "This allegation is ridiculous ".

Two points to keep in mind here.

It continues: "After over 40 years of public service, if any of these allegations were true, they would have been made public long before now".

Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado is chairman of the NRSC, the campaign arm of the Senate GOP.

To some conservative pundits, the lesson of previous scandals was that Republicans had been bullied too easily.

They fear the controversy could exacerbate the party's broader Trump-era challenge in appealing to college-educated suburban voters - the same group that fueled a big Democratic victory in the Virginia governor's race this week. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of". "It's ludicrous. It makes me want to rip the church back from these people".

I strongly urge the Washington Post, and everyone involved, to tell the truth. Middle grounds don't usually provide profiles in courage, but it's better than nothing ...

In a Washington Post story, Leigh Corfman, now 53, said that when she was 14 and Moore 32, they dated for a time, and while they were alone in his home, he stripped her to her undergarments, touched her over her bra and panties, and guided his hand to touch his genitals through his underwear. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. The Senate's GOP leader said if the report is shown to be true, Moore must step aside.

As of Friday morning, the senators' pictures still appear on the online link to Moore's fundraising appeal. If Lee has changed his mind about Moore, he's been awfully quiet about it.

"He seems like a good guy to me", said Pat Hurst, a resident of the town just off Interstate 20 some 75 miles east of Birmingham.

Under Alabama law, a person who is older than 19 years of age and subjects someone under 16 but older than 12 to sexual contact would be guilty of Sexual Abuse 2nd degree, a Class A misdemeanor.
