Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for a special US Senate election to replace Attorney General Sessions, has been accused of sexually molesting a 14 year old girl back in 1979.
The woman, Leigh Corfman, came out publicly to the Washington Post and the paper found multiple friends of hers who verified her story. Corfman accused Moore of "[taking] off her shirt and pants and remov[ing] his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear."
On top of that, three other women publicly came forward and accused Moore of unwanted sexual advances when they were teenagers. Moore is accused of approaching a 14-year-old Santa's Helper and asking to take her out on a date, taking a 17 year old high school student on a few dates with Moore where she claims he kissed her, and of dating and buying an 18 year old cheerleader alcohol so she could get drunk.
In normal times this would be a dagger in the heart of any campaign, but these aren't normal times considering a minority of voters elected an accused serial sex predator as President of the United States. Multiple Senate Republicans are calling for Moore to step down if the allegations are true, but I have a strong feeling they are more concerned about losing an otherwise slam dunk Senate election than anything else.
