NRSC severs fundraising ties with Roy Moore

NRSC severs fundraising ties with Roy Moore

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., a member of the GOP leadership, will not appear at a fundraiser for Moore next Friday in Albertville, Alabama that he had been billed as attending, according to an invitation shared with NBC News.

But any write-in campaign would be an uphill battle and end up splitting the GOP vote, making it easier for Democrat Doug Jones to win in an upset.

Bannon, President Donald Trump's former chief strategist, was among Moore's most vocal supporters this fall.

The most serious of these allegations was an on-the-record statement from a woman named Leigh Corfman that Moore, then 32, kissed and inappropriately touched her when she was 14 years old.

Republicans are not supposed to worry about Alabama.

In the wake of sexual misconduct allegations made against Senate candidate Roy Moore, one high profile Alabama politician is defending Moore.

Harris, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, endorsed Moore in September ahead of Alabama's Republican primary runoff.

"Take Joseph and Mary". "They became parents of Jesus", Zeigler added. And the man he defeated in the Republican primary, current Sen.

The agreement still includes the other participants -- the Republican National Committee, the Alabama Republican Party and Moore's campaign.

"Take the Bible. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter".

In addition to the seriousness of the allegations, experts and analysts say that it could cause some serious problems for the GOP's recent tax reform push. That non-authoritative text placed Mary's age at 12 when she conceived and it cited supposed evidence of her enduring virginity to demonstrate she conceived Jesus without sexual intercourse.

Moore explained that he rejects calls for him to recuse himself from the Senate race because he "had nothing to do with this". "Maybe just a little bit unusual".

He says he is strongly urging the Post, which published the report based on on-the-record statements, to "tell the truth". On a second visit, he took off her shirt and trousers and removed his clothes except for his underwear before touching her over her bra and underpants, Corfman told the Post. Days later he took her home and removed their clothes, she said, touching her over her underwear and placing her hand on his underwear-clad genitals. And when I say "serve alongside", I mean that literally. "Whatever this is, just get it over".

At least two Republican senators, John McCain of Arizona and John Thune of South Dakota, said Moore should step aside immediately, with Senator McCain calling the accusations "deeply disturbing and disqualifying". I think there's a good chance.

If the Bible is not clear on the subject, the law is: Alabama's legal age of consent then and now is 16 and adults can not touch children sexually or entice them into a home for that objective.

It's a bittersweet moment for some Republicans who thought Moore never should have been the party's nominee.

The state's statute of limitations for bringing felony charges involving sexual abuse of a minor in 1979 would have run out three years later. He has condemned homosexuality and said he believes some United States communities are living under Islamic religious law. And it's also possible that after some initial discomfort, an terrible lot of Alabama Republicans will find their way clear to voting for Moore anyway, particularly if he and his defenders continue to hang tough.
