An Alabama woman alleges Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager, her attorney Gloria Allred said Monday.

"I think he should step aside", McConnell told reporters in Louisville". The report was based on an interview with Leigh Corfman, who said she was 14 and Moore 32 when he initiated a sexual encounter.

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.

"I tried fighting him off and yelling", she tearfully recalled, but "instead of stopping, he began squeezing my neck and attempting to force my head into his crotch". "I think he did cocaine".

Walker's office did not immediately respond Monday to an inquiry asking if his views on Moore had changed or whether he wanted to address the statements from Shilling and Taylor. "Because there are groups that don't want me in the United States Senate", he said, naming the Democratic Party and the Republican establishment and accusing them of working together.

"I tried to open my vehicle door to leave, but he reached over and he locked it so I could not get out". "In the next few days there will be revelations about the motivation and the content of this article", he stated, adding, "I do not expect the Washington Post to stop". It says Moore is innocent and "has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for Moore to exit the race Monday morning, declaring he believed Moore's accusers and talking about a possible write-in campaign. Luther Strange, the loser to Moore in a party primary, he said, "We'll see".

National Republicans can't do anything to force Moore out of the race, however.

These attacks involve minors and they are completely false and untrue - about something that happened almost 40 years ago.

Alabama will hold a special election on December 12 to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Four surveys of voters taken in Alabama, a southern state, in the immediate aftermath of the newspaper story and Moore's adamant rejection of it show him to be in a close race with Jones, separated by a few percentage points, with a significant share of undecided voters.

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