Roy Moore is the Republican nominee running for a U.S. Senate seat against Democrat Doug Jones. The Washington Post just reported that when Moore was 32, he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl. Three other women also reported that Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18.
Now, Republicans are asking Moore to drop out of the race. But Moore insists these allegations are false, and simply an attack on him by the national Democratic Party. Moore said, "The forces of evil will lie, cheat, steal - even inflict physical harm - if they believe it will silence and shut up Christian conservatives like you and me." Based on when these alleged sexual encounters took place, the statute of limitations has expired.
