Washington (CNN) The pressure just keeps on mounting on Alabama Republican Roy Moore.
The 70-year-old US Senate hopeful, now significantly less than a month from a particular election to displace Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has been accused of pursuing relationships with teenage girls while he was in his 30s. One female said she was 14 years older when Moore initiated sexual contact with her. And on Monday, another Alabama female alleged Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and majority whip John Cornyn, along with more than a few more rank-and-file senators, withdrew their endorsements of Moore on Monday.
There’s just one problem for the GOP: It’s too past due to get Roy Moore off the ballot.
Senate president pro tempore Orrin Hatch tweeted on Monday that sitting down Sen. Luther Unusual, who was simply appointed in the quick aftermath of Sessions’ resignation, should keep carefully the seat.
