"Family values" candidate Roy Moore accused of seducing 14-year-old girl

Roy Moore speaks to students at ACA in Tuscaloosa Wednesday

The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, who actively supported unusual, said in a statement: "If these allegations are true, he must step aside".

Moore, who is running for Senate in Alabama, is one of the most staunchly anti-LGBTQ politicians in the country.

The Washington Post reported that three other women said Moore pursued them when he was in his early 30s and they were in their teens, between the ages of 16 and 18, but none of them said Moore coerced them into sexual encounters.

His campaign later added that the allegations were "garbage" and the "definition of fake news".

The Washington Post article alleges that Mr Moore, who was then an assistant district attorney, struck up a conversation with Ms Corfman when she was 14. One of the women was 14 when Moore met her, and another said they went on dates that never went beyond "kissing". Marion County GOP Chairman David Hall dismissed the accusations, telling Dale that the story told by the woman who was 14 at the time was irrelevant because "she's not saying that anything happened other than they kissed".

The campaign released a statement Thursday after The Washington Post reported the Alabama Republican candidate had sexual contact with one teenager and pursued three others almost four decades ago.

Pollak continued, "If this story is true - and I think any story of sexual misconduct especially with someone under age is very serious - why would The Washington Post wrap it with all kinds of perfectly legitimate relationships and with all kinds of political clutter?"

Moore prevailed over several Republican opponents in a closely contested primary that saw US President Donald Trump, McConnell and most establishment Republicans back the incumbent, Luther Strange.

Facebook: send nudes and we'll protect you against revenge porn
As a platform (in) directly responsible for the proliferation of revenge porn , Facebook is now trying to help put a stop to it. Revenge porn is one of the latest online problems, and it's one to which it would seem hard to come up with a solution.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado says, "The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling".

"Judge Roy Moore is winning with a double-digit lead".

Roy Moore, a Republican firebrand, said claims that he preyed on a teenager while he was a 32-year-old prosecutor were "completely false". It's too late to get Moore's name off the ballot, even if you manage to get him off the race.

Moore blasted the charges as a 'desperate political attack'. A special election will be held on December 12.

She said of Moore at the time: 'He was charming and smiley.' After both meetings, she says she asked Moore to take her home and he did.

"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", Corfman told the Post she was thinking at the time of the encounter. The age of consent in Alabama is 16. "They are wrong and of Satan", Moore said, according to Borden's account.

Then during another visit, he removed her shirt and trousers and took off his own clothing.

In Washington at least, few Republicans came to Moore's defence in the hours after the report was published. He has been twice removed as chief justice of the state supreme court, first for refusing to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from the grounds of his courthouse and more recently for refusing to implement the USA supreme court ruling legalizing gay marriage.
