Woman accuses Moore of sexually assaulting her at 16

He has refused to leave the race and said on Twitter that McConnell was the person who should step down. She alleges that he told her at the time: "You're just a child and I am the district attorney ... and if you tell anyone about this, no one will ever believe you".

"Gloria Allred is a sensationalist leading a witch hunt, and she is only around to create a spectacle", Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead said in a statement.

Moore said a lawsuit will be filed over the Post report that detailed the allegations against him. "I think they have a political agenda, and I think they're running that agenda".

"You acknowledge sexual contact with a 14-year-old would have been illegal and would be considered sexual abuse by the books today.You make this argument that there wasn't a law against sexual abuse in Alabama back in the 70s", she said.

On CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday, I explained how Sinclair used its Alabama station, WBMA, last week to try and attack the credibility of a Washington Post report on Moore.

"I think if this was a serious- if these allegations were out there and they were serious, I probably would have heard them", he said". I tried fighting him off while yelling at him to stop. "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".

She continued: "He finally allowed me to open the auto door and I either fell out or he pushed me out".

Speaking at a press conference in Louisville about tax reform, McConnell was asked if he believed Moore's accusers.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called on Roy Moore to step aside from the race Monday, but it doesn't appear as if he will. Roy Moore is using the Republican leader's words in a campaign fundraising email, according to BuzzFeed News.

A woman on Monday alleged that Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for Senate in Alabama sexually assaulted her when she was a minor.

But a write-in candidacy would be complicated by the fact that Moore's name has already been printed on absentee voter ballots and the deadline for withdrawal from the race has long since passed.

The Washington Post broke the initial story last week, rocking the U.S. Senate special election in Alabama. These allegations came four and a half weeks before the general election on December 12.

These attacks involve minors and they are completely false and untrue - about something that happened almost 40 years ago. "I sometimes wonder, how much does it take for people to believe women in these instances?"

But Moore has remained defiant.
