(Worthy News) - Embattled Senate candidate Roy Moore, bolstered by the support of top Alabama Republicans, dug in Thursday against calls for him to withdraw from a December special election because of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
The 70-year-old retired judge attempted to shield himself from political fallout by raising fresh revelations of sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and by labeling the charges against him a conspiracy hatched by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.
“This is an effort by Mitch McConnell and his cronies, to steal this election from the people of Alabama, and they will not stand for it,” Moore said during news conference, flanked by religious leaders from around the country supporting his campaign. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
