NRSC ends fundraising agreement with Roy Moore

Roy Moore now says he doesn't remember if he pursued teen girls in his 30s

The group had been part of a fundraising committee that includes the Alabama Republican Party and the Republican National Committee.

His party suddenly and bitingly divided, Alabama Republican Roy Moore ignored increasing pressure to abandon his Senate bid on Friday as fears grew among GOP leaders that a once-safe Senate seat was in jeopardy just a month before a special election. Andy Harris, a Baltimore County Republican, should withdraw his endorsement of Moore, the subject of allegations he initiated relationships with minors in the 1970s and 1980s.

Zeigler, who was elected in 2014 and has not said whether he is seeking a second term, has endorsed Moore and defended Moore on the allegation by a woman in the Post story that Moore dated her and had a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and Moore was 32.

In addition to Corfman, thee other women interviewed by The Washington Post allege Moore "pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18".

He was removed as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court because of his efforts to block marriage equality in the state after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. Harris's campaign committee contributed $1,000 to Moore's campaign in September, and his leadership PAC gave another $1,000 in August.

Zeigler, asked to respond to Lipinsky's comments today, stressed that he believes the story about Moore is not true and called the story a "hit piece". Maybe Luther Strange, who was appointed in the first place to occupy Jeff Sessions' vacated seat and who lost to Moore in the GOP primary.

"The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying", McCain said.

"Yesterday, I made a statement that the allegations described in a Washington Post article against me about sexual impropriety were false".

Rahul unable to see the reality, says Rajnath
He said, " Surat is the place which can compete with China and has been doing it. GST or Gabbar Singh Tax has unleashed tax terrorism. Rahul Gandhi is a "manufacturer of tragedy".

Unlike other Republicans who tempered their calls for Moore to resign - conditioned on the allegations proving true - Romney said he believes the reported victim, Leigh Corfman, is being truthful and Moore should drop out.

"If these allegations are true, he must step aside", McConnell said in a statement.

"Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections".

The revelations have produced a wave of concern among anxious Republican officials in Washington but little more than a collective shrug from many Republicans in Alabama, which holds a special election on December 12 to fill the seat previously held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Even before the sexual abuse accusations became public, Senate Republicans had been asked repeatedly about Moore's more extreme positions on the proper role of the Christian faith in American political life.

In the small eastern Alabama town of Heflin, a handful of people interviewed by the AP indicated they were indifferent to the allegations if not disbelieving of them.

Several religious scholars objected to Zeigler's use of the Bible to defend Moore.

The White House says President Donald Trump believes Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore "will do the right thing and step aside" if sexual misconduct allegations against him are true. But removing the endorsement is a kind of middle ground, telling voters that they can still vote for Moore if they wish - but the GOP no longer recommends him.

Republicans are attempting to push through their massive tax overhaul by the end of the year and have already advanced the House version of their bill out of committee. The Washington Post reported the allegations Thursday.
