New Moore accuser alleges US Senate candidate restrained, groped her at 16

Roy Moore Threatens Lawsuit Over Story That Threatens Campaign

One woman said Moore initiated sexual contact with her in 1979 when she was 14 years old and he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney.

Moore noted that "they" do investigations every time he runs for public office. "I thought he was going to rape me". "We have four children", adding that he has one daughter and five granddaughters.

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.

The Senate candidate -who already has a long and controversial history-came under intense scrutiny Thursday when four women told the Washington Post he pursued them when they were between the ages of 14 to 18, while he was in his 30s.

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 sometimes wonder, how much does it take for people to believe women in these instances?" "I've been investigated more than any other person in the country", he said, adding, "That these grown women would wait 40 years to come forward right now before an election to bring charges is absolutely unbelievable".

"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. The Republican Senate campaign arm on Friday severed its fund-raising relationship with him for the special election to fill a seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became USA attorney general earlier this year. It says Moore is innocent and "has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone".

After an explosive chorus, "This Is Why We Don't Have Nice Things " calls out Swift's brief reconciliation with West. In verse two, she makes it clear that " This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things " is about burning bridges.

The latest of course is Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama.

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. "If the allegations are true, there is no doubt he should step aside. It was a Scott Walker, a Scott P. Walker, I'm Scott Kevin Walker", Walker said. He accused them of working together to derail his campaign, but said, "We do not plan to let anybody deter us from this race".

Even if Moore were to step aside, his name would likely remain on the ballot.

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.

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