Roy Moore, a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, said during a debate on September 21 that "crime, corruption, immorality, abortion, sodomy, sexual perversion sweep our land".

The Washington Post exclusive provided quotes from four named women, three of whom say they were 17 or under when Moore approached them; two of those women say that romantic contact resulted when they were 14 and 16, respectively.

Senate candidate Roy Moore's campaign is calling allegations of sexual misconduct against him "the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation".

Leigh Corfman, now 53, told the Post that she met Moore outside court in 1979 when her mother was inside for a child custody hearing after Moore offered to watch her.

Augmented Reality 'Harry Potter' Mobile Game Coming In 2018
The game won't actually be called " Harry Potter Go", but it is being designed by Niantic, the company who made the original app. Harry Potter fans will soon be able to experience the wonder of the Wizarding World from their own phones.

The three other women, Wendy Miller, Debbie Wesson Gibson and Gloria Thacker Deason, all said Moore took them on dates when he was in his thirties and they were teenagers. Moore pursued them when they were between ages of 16 and 18.

The campaign released a statement Thursday after The Washington Post reported the Alabama Republican candidate had sexual contact with one teenager and pursued three others almost four decades ago.

She thought: "I don't want to do this" and 'I need to get out of here'.

Moore, campaigning against Democrat Doug Jones, is running to fill the Senate seat left vacant by Jeff Sessions, who became attorney general of the United States in February.

Kevin Spacey removed from Ridley Scott's film
Broadway star Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of attempting to molest him when he was a teenager at a party in the 1980s. Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams , who also star in the movie, are expected to be involved with the reshoots.

'I remember talking to her and telling her it's not a good idea, ' said Betsy Davis, who remembers her friend seeing an older man named Roy Moore. The statue of limitations for bringing felony charges against Moore would have passed in the early 1980s, while civil action against him would have expired after Corfman turned 21. He was twice removed from his Supreme Court position, once for disobeying a federal court order to remove a 5,200 pound granite Ten Commandments monument from the lobby of the state judicial building, and later for urging state probate judges to defy the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized gay marriage.

Corfman said he removed her clothes, fondled her over her underwear, and, wearing only underwear himself, tried to get her to touch his penis.

The 12 December vote could be a good test of whether there is ever a scenario in which deep-red Alabama could elect a Democrat to statewide office. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her.

The other way Moore could abdicate the ballot is through some form of legal action, but, since the current situation is unprecedented in Alabama politics, no one knows how that would work.

"If the allegations are true, yes, I think he should step aside", Sen. "They are wrong and of Satan", Moore said, according to Borden's account. "I don't recuse for every criminal that comes up, and I'm not comparing criminality with this conduct, but if somebody that commits a murder comes up before my court, I'm not going to recuse them, because that's against what I believe, and it's also against the law" - Moore in a 1990s court opinion, as CNN reported.
