Republicans: Moore should drop out if allegations are true

Moore, a former judge and the Republican nominee for a vacant Senate seat in Alabama, has denied explosive allegations from four women that he pursued them when they were 18 or younger while he was in his 30s. Mobile County GOP Chairman John Skipper, meanwhile, said he believed the accusations reported by the Post were "bunk" because if they were true, Skipper said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) - who opposed Moore in the state's Republican primary - would have publicized them.
Now 70, Moore has denied the allegations and says that they are motivated by the "Democrat Party" and "fake news", according to the Washington Post.
McConnell's inner circle spent late Thursday morning discussing the repercussions and how Republicans should move forward - and grousing that if unusual, their preferred candidate in the primary, was still the nominee, they would not be answering questions about Moore's conduct.
Republican leaders on Thursday called for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the race if there's any shred of truth to the sexual assault allegations levied against him in a new Washington Post report.
Sorry to politicize a truly frightful action, but hey, if it gets Roy Moore-who, according to The Root's politics editor, Jason Johnson, is a Breitbart-approved, "virulently bigoted, white-supremacist-sympathizing, Jeff Sessions-patterned candidate"-so the better". One woman said she was just 14 at the time.
Leigh Corfman, now 53, toldthe Post that she met Moore outside of court in 1979 when her mother was inside for a child custody hearing. Then, she says he asked her for her phone number, and picked her up near her house a few days later. During the first encounter, she says the two kissed.

When they met for the second time, he allegedly took off her clothes and removed his trousers; he touched Corfman's bra and underpants, and asked her to touch his underwear. "I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl".
Most Republicans who acknowledged the horrific nature of the allegations agreed that Moore should step down, but only "if true." Sen. Moore is running in a primary runoff election against incumbent Luther Strange for the seat vacated when Jeff Sessions was appointed U.S. Attorney General by President Donald Trump. John McCain, however, did not equivocate.
"Allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of", he added.
In addition to the leadership, prominent Republican pols spoke out Thursday afternoon, saying that Moore should bow out if the accusations are true.
Some local Alabama politicians, however, were not as quick to suggest the allegations could be credible.
