GOP senators are further distancing themselves from Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore as allegations that he made sexual and romantic advances on teenage girls escalate.
Multiple women told the Washington Post that Moore pursued romantic relationships with them when he was in his 30s. One of the women said Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 14. A fifth woman on Monday said that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16.
“He ought to seriously think about dropping out,” said Alabama senator Richard Shelby, who on Thursday said that Moore does not belong in the Senate “if” the Post story is true. “Drip by drip, cut by cut.”
