A woman told The Washington Post that Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore initiated a sexual encounter when she was 14 years old and he was 32 years old.

"These allegations are completely false and misleading but more than that it hurts me personally, you know- I'm a father", Moore said in an interview with Sean Hannity.

Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist who backed Moore's candidacy, condemned the Washington Post as part of the "opposition party" after it made the allegations public. In addition, Zeigler said that even if the allegation was true, it did not involve sexual intercourse.

Specifically, Romney referred to Leigh Corfman's allegations, made to the Washington Post, about her 1979 meeting with Moore when she was 14, in which she alleged he drove her to his home in the woods, removed his clothing, told her to do the same, and then began touching her sexually.

Moore denies the allegations.

Taking it a step further, Ziegler called Moore "clean as a hound's tooth" and cited the former judge's long and "wonderful" married life as proof of his good character.

Moore's name will appear on the ballot no matter what, along with that of Democrat Doug Jones, a former U.S. Attorney, who had been given little chance of winning the seat. Unusual lost to Moore in the Republican primary runoff.

Utah's senators, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee, joined a chorus of Republican senators on Thursday in calling for Moore to step aside if the allegations are true.

Three other women, ages 16 to 18 at the time, also said they had been pursued by Moore when he was in his 30s, but that nothing went beyond kissing. "I do not believe them".

While he's got more tools at his disposal, the pressure on Kidd to win now surely ratchets up following this trade. Adding Bledsoe's ability to run an offense and shoot from the perimeter could be big for this team moving forward.

Most Senate Republicans took an "if true" stance, as Talking Points Memo puts it - that is, saying that the women's accounts of their experiences are not enough to prompt calls for Moore's resignation but that he should remove himself from the race if the accusations are legitimate.

Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado is chairman of the NRSC, the campaign arm of the Senate GOP.

During the 2012 election, Republican Senate candidates in Missouri and in made inaccurate and controversial comments about rape that allowed Democrats to make inroads with women voters across the country.

Elliott Lipinsky, a deputy district attorney in Wilcox County who is running for state auditor, said State Auditor Jim Zeigler's comments about the Washington Post story on Roy Moore were "disturbing".

Dean Young, a longtime friend and adviser to Moore, said that Alabama voters would likely weigh the accusations against Moore with the sources that published them.

Moore has said he plans to continue his campaign and there has been no signal from the state Republican Party that they are seriously considering seeking to disqualify him from the December 12 general election ballot. Luther Strange, R-Ala., who lost the GOP primary to Moore. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who now serves as USA attorney general.

Asked to clarify if Blunt was canceling on the fundraiser, she repeated, "He won't be in AL". "Moore has come out and denied it so you would think that he's telling the truth".

On his Senate campaign website, Moore said he was suspended "for upholding the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman".
