GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore denies allegation of sexual misconduct years ago with 14-year-old girl | ABC News
If there is any truth to this allegation Roy Moore should step aside.
The Washington Post interviewed more than 30 people for its story, which included descriptions of a 32-year-old Moore kissing and removing the clothing of a 14-year-old girl in alleged encounters with her in 1979. Three additional women told the newspaper that Moore courted them between the ages of 16 and 18 while Moore was in his 30s. Neither the 14-year-old nor her family members reported the encounters to authorities at the time and none of the subjects of the report accused Moore of a crime. The age of consent in Alabama in 1979 was, and remains, 16 years old. ABC News
