State Auditor Jim Zielgler Invokes Bible to Defend Roy Moore

  • Alabama official uses Bible to condone sexual misconduct

"They are two of the biggest goobers we have in Washington D.C.", Henry said.

"I'm prepping my candidate for what he is going to say if he is asked", said one Republican campaign manager for a top 2018 race, who asked to speak anonymously to not draw attention to race.

But Sanders said: "The president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside".

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill says Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's name can not be removed from the ballot this close to the election.

"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.

Moore has denied the allegations and given no indication that he will exit the race.

Moore said that he did recognize some of the women's names in the Washington Post report but could not remember if he had ever gone on dates with him.

In Washington, Republican senators responded to the report with shock and dismay, telling reporters that if the claims were true, Moore should exit the race immediately. "Let me do some more research", he told The Associated Press. I think there's a good chance.

The question this poll can not really answer is the level of detail about the allegations against Moore that voters absorbed the day they were released - presumably not a lot of Alabamians read the Washington Post - and whether the sheer creepiness of Moore's reported conduct came through. Senators like Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, and Ted Cruz called for him to step aside if the allegations are true.




Reynolds says, "This is a deliberate effort to discourage the campaign from being able to put together the team it needs to carry forward".

If you are wondering how Alabama voters are reacting to the explosive allegations of sexual misconduct involving minors against Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore, we have the first empirical evidence via a one-day poll conducted yesterday by Opinion Savvy for Decision Desk HQ.

The 70-year-old Moore voraciously denied the allegations, calling it a smear job by Democrats and WaPo (the fourth woman, Leigh Corfman, who is now 53, said she voted for Republicans in the last three presidential elections). The information was in a filing to the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

On Thursday, senior Republicans, including President Donald Trump, swiftly called for Moore to step aside from the Senate race if the allegations are shown to be true. Second: the NRSC's preferred candidate would have been current incumbent Luther Strange, and this might free them up to help fund a Luther write-in campaign.

The victor of the December 12 election will fill the seat vacated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Then, even if he has to retire from politics later, the Alabama governor can fill the seat by appointing another Republican.

The Senate Republican fundraising operation on Friday pulled out of a joint committee it had set up with Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's campaign, following allegations the former judge initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl almost four decades ago.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that an Alabama woman said Moore, then a 32-year-old assistant district attorney, had sexual contact with her when she was 14.

In Washington at least, few Republicans came to Moore's defense in the hours after the report was published.

But nationally, GOP leaders were less likely to defend Moore's actions and more likely to say the allegations were disturbing, without necessarily ruling on their veracity.
