Roy Moore allegations: Another woman accuses Republican candidate of assault

Moore finally stopped and as she fell or was pushed out of the auto, he warned her no one would believe because he was a county district attorney, Nelson said.

Earlier in the interview, Moseley noted that he has known Moore for 20 years and has covered his campaigns. "But from my point of view, I think the accusations have more credibility than the denial". He has denied the allegations and has said he plans to remain in the race.

Moore, a Republican, has painted the allegations and subsequent calls for him to step down - including from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell - as a politically motivated "witch hunt" against him. Four other women have accused Moore of inappropriate contact when they were teens - one of whom came forward publicly on Monday.

In the past few months, President Trump has had a tumultuous relationship with Sessions, due in no small part to his frustration with the attorney general's recusal from the investigations into Russia's 2016 election interference. "I was frightened by his position, by his power", Nelson said.

He said, "I'm counting on you to stand with me at this critical moment by chipping in a donation to help me bust through the vicious lies and attacks and get the truth out to as many voters as possible before December 12". Asked if that would have been usual for him, Moore said, "Not generally, no".

Moore has come under increasing pressure from GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill to step aside prior to the December 12 special election in Alabama. "We've said this before and we'll say it again: Judge Moore is an innocent man and has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone". But Moore could well ignore it since he has routinely ridiculed McConnell's performance as the Senate Republican leader and rebuffed calls from other prominent Republicans to drop out of the race. But Bannon is trying to muddy the waters and dupe voters into believing that even Chuck Todd suspects Moore is the victim of a conspiracy. And any effort to add unusual as a write-in candidate would threaten to divide the GOP vote in a way that would give the Democratic candidate a greater chance of winning. John McCain, R-Arizona, have said the same, among others. "If the allegations are true, there is no doubt he should step aside".

McConnell told reporters in his home state of Kentucky that party officials were considering whether a Republican write-in candidate could be found to challenge Moore in the December 12 special election. "The denial was not as strong as the allegations", Scott said.

But understanding that most people have not actually met Roy and don't know him personally, we're still talking about 38 years ago, we're talking about something that's past the statute of limitations.
