The top Republican in the U.S. Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said Monday that Alabama Republican Roy Moore should end his Senate candidacy in the wake of allegations he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl four decades ago when he was a 32-year-old local prosecutor.
"I think he should step aside", McConnell told reporters in Louisville".
When she fought back, he gave up and told her: "You're just a child and he said I'm the district attorney, if you tell anyone about this no one will ever believe you". Moore was the district attorney of Etowah County, Alabama, at the time and Nelson said she trusted him and saw him as an important local figure.
Through a spokesman, Moore dismissed the allegation. I tried fighting him off, I yelled at him to stop, but instead of stopping, he began grasping my neck, attempting to force my head onto his crotch.
"I though that he was going to rape me". "I did not respond to any of Mr. Moore's flirtatious behavior". "I don't know all the facts", Walker said.
"I tried to open my auto door to leave, but he reached over and he locked it so I could not get out". I was twisting and struggling and begging 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".

It would take 67 votes to expel Moore from the Senate if he does win the December 12 election.
Attorney Gloria Allred and Nelson called on the Senate Judiciary Committee to subpoena Moore and hold a hearing on the allegations against him within the next weeks.
A new accuser said today that as a teenager in the 1970s she was sexually assaulted by Roy Moore in a locked auto, further rocking the Alabama Republican's race for an open Senate seat.
But the state party and many other Alabama Republicans have not wavered in their support of Moore, who scored a decisive primary victory in September over Luther Strange, who was appointed to fill the Sessions seat on an interim basis and was supported by President Donald Trump. "It's his responsibility to step forward and say more and do more when it comes to the situation in Alabama", Durbin, D-Ill., said on CNN's "State of the Union".
"Doug's opponent, Roy Moore, is an extremist with a record of putting political ideology above the rule of law", Donnelly wrote in a weekend email soliciting contributions for Democrat Doug Jones. The Republican Senate campaign arm on Friday severed its fund-raising relationship with him for the special election to fill a seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became US attorney general earlier this year.
But Moore has remained defiant.
