McConnell Calls for Roy Moore to Drop Out of Senate Race

McConnell Calls for Roy Moore to Drop Out of Senate Race

"I would probably have taken what Mr. Moore did to me to my grave, had it not been for the courage of four other women", she said. Moore would have been in his 30s at the time. "I thought that he was going to rape me". He added, "We do not plan to let anybody deter us from this race".

Todd's "orchestrated" assessment referred to the way Capitol Hill Republicans responded, nearly in unison, to The Washington Post's report that four women claim Moore inappropriately touched, kissed or tried to date them when they were teens and he was in his 30s. "It's his responsibility to step forward and say more and do more when it comes to the situation in Alabama", Durbin, D-Ill., said on CNN's "State of the Union".

"If Roy Moore committed a sin, that's a sin and that's not good, but we're not talking about an actual crime here under-that's prosecutable in 2017", he said. It said Moore is innocent and "has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone".

A new report suggests that the Trump Administration might be looking at ways to appoint Attorney General Jeff Sessions to his old senate seat in order to quell the evolving controversy that surrounds Roy Moore. Losing the special election to a Democrat would imperil Republicans' already slim 52-48 majority in the Senate, which is hoping to pass a tax overhaul later this year. Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader of the Senate, said he "should step aside." Sen. 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.

Majority of Utah's hate crime is race-related, Federal Bureau of Investigation says
About half the 1,273 incidents involving religion were against Jews while Muslims were targeted in 307 religion-based crimes. There were 40 hate crimes reported in the state previous year , the highest number of bias-related incidents since 2010.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has pulled out of a joint fundraising agreement with Moore, and the list of prominent Republicans opposing Moore's candidacy has steadily grown.

"The person who should step aside is SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell. It was a Scott Walker, a Scott P. Walker, I'm Scott Kevin Walker", Walker said.

"President Trump is the leader of the Republican Party in America". 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.

But Moore has remained defiant.

Olympic Gymnast Aly Raisman Says She Was Sexually Abused By Team Doctor
Nassar's case was part of a wide-ranging scandal which forced the resignation of USA Gymnastics chief Steve Penny a year ago . Aly Raisman , 23, won six medals including three gold medals at the London Olympics (2012) and Rio (2016).

Moore told a Republican gathering in Birmingham that the Post had "published yet another attack on my character and reputation in a desperate attempt to stop my campaign...."

Walker was asked in the Sunday interview if Moore should bow out of the race in the light of the allegations.

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.
