A growing chorus of Senate Republicans including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., have called on Senate candidate Roy Moore to withdraw from a special election in Alabama if allegations prove true that the former judge initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl almost four decades ago. Although Moore appealed the recusal, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled in favor of the plaintiff, and the case was heard without Moore. "You've got the establishment and they hate Roy Moore".
"If these allegations are true, he must step aside", said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, establishing a line that was repeated by an array of his Senate Republican colleagues. "They are wrong and of Satan", Moore said, according to Borden's account.
Three other women told The Post Moore had pursued them while he was in his 30s and they were between 16 and 18 years old, though they said no sexual contact occurred.
The Washington Post reported Thursday morning that Moore first befriended and then made sexual advances toward 14-year-0ld Leigh Corfman when he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney in Etowah County, Ala. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, say that he needs to hit the road.

Shortly before the Washington Post article was published, Breitbart, the conservative website run by Bannon, published an article featuring the Post's request for comment to the Moore campaign, which detailed the accusations against him, and the Alabama Republican's response to the allegations.
Those sentiments were echoed by Utah Senator Mike Lee, who last month endorsed Moore in his race against Democrat Doug Jones, and National Republican Senate Committee Chairman Cory Gardner, who called the allegations "deeply troubling".
Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said Moore should step aside without saying further investigation was necessary.
The Huffington Post reports that even if Moore withdraws, he can not be easily replaced on the ballot, perhaps ensuring that the seat will fall to the Democratic challenger Doug Jones in the December 12 election.
Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said Thursday ballots have already been printed. "He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of".
Odd didn't respond to questions from reporters Thursday.
Several state Republicans suggested Thursday that the party is unlikely to disqualify Moore.
"If there's even a shred of evidence to these accusations, Gov. Ivey and the Alabama Republican Party need to do everything in their power to remove Judge Moore from the ballot, " Steven Law, president and CEO of the Senate Leadership Fund, said in a statement.
These stories of such inappropriate behavior are appalling to say the least, however what is even more disturbing is to see how Moore's ally defended his alleged sexual assault.
