Roy Moore and Doug Jones both have young girls in their past

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters that "if these allegations are true, (Moore) must step aside".

Moore's campaign denied the report and said it was "the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation".

The woman, Leigh Corfman, now 53, told the Post that Moore took off her "shirt and trousers and removed his clothes", touched her "over her bra and underpants" and "guided her hand to touch him over his underwear".

Moore, 70, denies the allegations.

Corfman told the Post: "I wasn't ready for that - I had never put my hand on a man's penis, much less an erect one".

In one particularly odd instance, Alabama Covington County GOP Chairman William Blocker told Dale that he thought Democrats convinced the women in the report to lie about Moore. The article added, "Aside from Corfman, three other women interviewed by The Washington Post in recent weeks say Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s, episodes they say they found flattering at the time, but troubling as they got older". Considered an anti-establishment conservative, Moore will face Democrat Doug Jones in a special Senate election December 12 to replace Jeff Sessions, who is now United States attorney general.

"I would vote for Judge Moore because I wouldn't want to vote for [Democratic nominee Doug Jones]", Pow said, according to Dale.

Pollak said of the claim that Moore engaged in sexual activity with a 14-year-old: "If that turns out to be true, then he's really got some serious problems and I think that we need to drill down and find out what that is".

He told the Washington Examiner "there is nothing to see here" - and referred to the Bible as a defense. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. "There's just nothing immoral or illegal here".

Among the handful of Senate Republicans who have endorsed Moore, only Mike Lee of Utah weighed in on the allegations.

How that happens remained unclear. However, Alabama law prohibits the replacement of a candidate up to 76 days before the election, meaning Moore's name will likely be on the ballot when Alabamians vote next month. He won the Republican nomination in September besting appointed incumbent Luther Strange by a margin of 55%-45% despite Strange's support from Donald Trump and the entire machinery of the Republican party. During the first encounter, she says the two kissed.

Unusual had been Trump's pick in the primary.

According to The Post report, a woman named Leigh Corfman said that in 1979, Moore, then a 32-year-old district attorney, approached her in an Alabama courtroom and got her number.

"There's nothing wrong with a 30-year-old single male asking a 19-year-old, a 17-year-old, or a 16-year-old out on a date", Hall continued.

Moore had a controversial career as a judge, notably for refusing to remove a statue of the Ten Commandments in his court house.
