The Alabama Republican Senate nominee, Roy Moore is in the news for sexually assaulting a 14 year old girl while he was 32. The recent allegations have divided Republicans senators in Washington, who was no fan of the nominee, though Roy Moore is a good friend of President Trump.

                      

According to the Roy Moore campaign adviser, Dean Young;

For the next 33 days, Alabamians are going to be tested whether they can be tricked by fake news and the establishment. If they pass the test, our nation has hope. But if they can beat Judge Roy Moore in Alabama, they can beat anybody, anywhere, anytime and our nation will continue to go down in a spiral.

According to reports, Roy Moore took Leigh Corfman to his house in 1979, stripped to his underwear and made her touch his genitals. Narrating his experience with Moore to Washingtonpost, Corfman said;

I wasn’t ready for that – I had never put my hand on a man’s penis, much less an erect one.

Aside from Leigh Corfman, three women have come forward with detailed allegation of the nominee, and according to one of the ladies, Roy Moore ordered a cocktail for her, even when he knew she was underage at the time,and did not say if there was any illegal behaviour after that.

In 5 weeks, Roy Moore will face off with the Democratic party nominee, Doug Jones as they compete for a vacant seat left by current US attorney General, Jeff Sessions. Roy Moore in September had won the appointed incumbent and one supported by Donald Trump, Luther Strange. 

Roy Moore is receiving support from former White house strategist, Steve Bannon.

Top Republicans have distanced themselves from the Moore's campaign. Some  Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado, Senator John McCain of Arizona had called for Moore to step down if any of the allegations against him are true. 

Roy Moore campaign has instead used the recent sexual assault allegations to fund for more money for their campaign, and had called the latest allegation to be from former president Obama and 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. In the email to supporters, the Moore campaign wrote;

The Obama-Clinton Machine’s liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I’ve EVER faced.
