Moore threatens lawsuit over story that threatens campaign


Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate, said he "should step aside." Sen.

"This is a bridge too far and the Republican Party ought to disown every aspect of him", Kinzinger said, warning that more allegations could be made.

In a press conference Monday with prominent attorney Gloria Allred, Beverly Young Nelson alleged that when she was 16, Moore groped her against her will and when she resisted, "began squeezing my neck and attempting to force my head into his crotch". Moore was the district attorney of Etowah County, Alabama, at the time and Nelson said she trusted him and saw him as an important local figure.

She accused him of touching her breasts and locking the door to keep her inside his vehicle. One woman said Moore initiated sexual contact with her in 1979 when she was 14 years old and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney.

Nelson said she first met Moore when she was 15 and he was a regular at the restaurant where she worked.

McConnell said a write-in effort by another candidate was a possibility. He has failed conservatives and must be replaced.

Other national Republicans also have backed away from Moore.

Gibson's "allegation" is that she and Moore kissed twice.


"Doug's opponent, Roy Moore, is an extremist with a record of putting political ideology above the rule of law", Donnelly wrote in a weekend email soliciting contributions for Democrat Doug Jones.

Alabama will hold a special election on December 12 to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He tried to shift the focus back to Republicans. Other Democratic Party politicians pictured with Gibson include former Vice President Joe Biden, a former Florida senator, and Senator Bill Nelson of Florida.

"To a sweeter, more attractive girl I could not say 'Merry Christmas, '" he had written in the book.

During a CNN interview on Monday, Brandon Moseley, a reporter at the Alabama Political Reporter, argued that allegations such as the ones being leveled at Moore shouldn't disqualify the candidate.

Moore's denied the previous claims, and threatened to sue the Post.

"Why would they come now?" "I've been investigated more than any other person in the country", he said, adding, "That these grown women would wait 40 years to come forward right now before an election to bring charges is absolutely unbelievable". He accused them of working together to derail his campaign, but said, "We do not plan to let anybody deter us from this race".

"Mr. Moore attacked me when I was a child".

Even if Moore were to step aside, his name would likely remain on the ballot.
