Mitch McConnell calls on Roy Moore to exit Alabama Senate race ‘if these allegations are true’
Moore, a longtime right-wing Conservative was a insurgent winner of the Republican primary. As a judge, he refused to removed the Ten Commandments from his courthouse, and was dismissed for telling state officials to ignore changes in the laws regarding gay marriages. In interviews he stated a belief that parts of the US are already under Sharia Law, and denied the right of a Muslim to sit in Congress.
Moore had the support of the Bannon wing of the Republican Party. Though Trump supported his primary opponent, the President has also said good things about Moore.
The women, so far 4 in number, allege that Moore made sexual advances to them when they were aged 14 to 16, around 1980.
Fox reports that Moore "decries" the allegations.

If Moore can drum up a "locker room talk" excuse, maybe he can still be elected.
