What kind of welcome would receives Roy Moore in Washington?
Brad Blakeman and Dan Kanninen debate, what comes next, if the Republican wins, the Alabama Senate seat.
Ahead of Tuesday’s special election in Alabama, Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has battled allegations of past behavior of sexual misconduct, is denied in a new interview that he dated ever underage girls.
“These allegations are completely false. I don’t have time even minors women. I didn’t bother anyone. And so these allegations are wrong,” Moore said in the interview with The voice of Alabama politics, a TV-news show in connection with the website of the Alabama Political Reporter.
“I don’t know you. I had no encounter with them. I’ve never harassed anyone. And for you to say that, I don’t know why you say it is, but it’s not true,” the 70-year-old Moore said.
“I said I didn’t want to know, one of the women who have charged me with sexual abuse accusation. And I didn’t want to know, one of the women,” Moore added. “When I saw these pictures on the advertising, which is not recognize by my opponent, I wanted to, one of these people. I never knew you.”
Moore tries to win Tuesday’s election against Democrat Doug Jones, a competition that was first seen, an easy GOP victory, until November, when a number of women stepped forward to accuse, Moore, behave in sexual misconduct when he was in his 30s, and they were teenagers, as young as 14.
Moore, in an interview last month, after the first sentence of the allegation, it had he can say he dated women in their later Teens during this time in his life.
“Not usually, no. If I did it, I’m not going to deny everything, but I can’t be to young to remember, something like,” Moore, Sean Hannity said in an interview on his radio show, when asked about dating women “as 17.”
The age of consent in Alabama is 16.
In the interview, Hannity, Moore confirmed that he remembered two of the women, Debbie Wesson Gibson and Gloria Thacker Deason, the language in both The Washington Post, the newspaper, the first story. Gibson told the Post that she was 17 years old when Moore asked, while Deason said she was with Moore when she was 18.
President Donald Trump has reinforced his support for the Moore, the analyst needs the votes of the GOP base, pull out a victory.
The President, the officially supported Moore last week, after previously giving lukewarm support, on Saturday tweeted his support for Moore, while painting democratic candidate, Doug Jones as a liberal who votes against his agenda.
On Friday night, as Fox News reported, the President spoke of his support for Moore during a rally in Pensacola, Florida — just across the state border of South Alabama.
“We can’t afford … to lose a seat in the very, very close to the United States Senate,” Trump said Friday. “We need somebody to be the seat of the Senate, the votes for our “Make America Great Again’ agenda … So get out and vote for Roy Moore. You can do it. You can do it.”
