Alabama's largest newspaper calls on voters to 'reject Roy Moore'

Leigh Corfman told NBC News that Mr Moore, then a 32-year-old prosecutor, "seduced" her at his house in 1979.

According to Politico, Moore's refusal to step aside after being accused of sexually assaulting a teen and stalking high schoolers at the mall doesn't play well with voters outside of Alabama who may take it out on his GOP peers. Instead, he insists that the allegations are false, and part of "a desperate political attack" on his campaign. The Washington Post and all of the fake media for the last two weeks has said everything they can say about Judge Moore.

In a particularly impactful moment, Corfman described the lasting effect that her encounter with Moore had on her life. "I felt guilty. I felt like I was the one to blame".

Her quote is used in an TV ad by the Jones campaign, which has seen an uptick in polling numbers in the deep red state amid sexual harassment claims against Moore. I never talked to or never had any contact with her. Allegations of sexual misconduct with her are completely false. At 14 I was not dating. "It was decades before I was able to let that go". "I don't know what happened", Trump said. "I've had to take leave for my job". That's all I can say. He left the room and came back wearing only his "white underwear" and began touching her, Corfman alleged. "And I do have to say, 40 years is a long time".

Corfman added that she "didn't deserve to have a 32-year-old man prey upon" her.

The age of consent in Alabama is 16.

At least nine women have leveled accusations against Moore, from sexual assault to attempting to coerce them into sex when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

Trump has yet to formally endorse Moore, but during a daily briefing with reporters, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked directly whether Trump wants Moore to win the Senate seat. "[Doug Jones] will be a vote against tax cuts", said Conway in a "Fox & Friends" interview.

When pressed over the allegations, Moore himself made another apparent slip, telling an interviewer, "I don't remember ever dating any girl without the permission of her mother".

Trump had pushed for Republicans to nominate Luther Strange, the appointed senator now holding the seat, but when Strange lost to Moore in a party primary in September, Trump voiced his support for Moore on Twitter.

Trump told reporters that he'll announce "next week" if he'll campaign for Moore ahead of the December 12 special election.

The Birmingham News, which endorsed Democrat candidate Doug Jones, said that the Alabama Republican establishment has, in contrast, "chosen to stand by him, attacking and belittling the courageous women who have come forward".

The Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama hopes to use Republicans' words against their own candidate.
