Roy Moore Accuser Describes 1977 Assault: I Was "Begging Him To Stop"

An Alabama woman on Monday said Senate candidate Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager, the fifth woman to accuse Moore of making improper sexual advances on her in recent days.

Susan Collins joined McConnell, tweeting that she did not believe Moore's denials and he should depart the race.

"Mr. Moore attacked me when I was a child", Nelson said, adding that she was 15 when he began flirting with her and 16 at the time of the alleged assault. "I was terrified. He was also struggling to pull my shirt off", she said.

The only allegation that actually merits a response from Moore is the one from Leigh Corfman, who claims she was just 14 when Moore dated her.

Nelson said that Moore eventually "gave up" and then warned her not to tell anyone.

Moore, too, has tried to raise money from the controversy, writing in a fundraising pitch that the "vicious and sleazy attacks against me are growing more vicious by the minute". "I was frightened by his position, by his power", Nelson said.

She accused him of touching her breasts and locking the door to keep her inside his auto. I tried fighting him off while yelling at him to stop. McConnell was also asked whether he believed the allegations by Corfman and the three other women. But Moore could well ignore it since he has routinely ridiculed McConnell's performance as the Senate Republican leader and rebuffed calls from other prominent Republicans to drop out of the race.

A reporter defending Roy Moore appeared to compare the sexual misconduct allegations against the GOP Senate candidate to stealing a lawnmower.

But a write-in candidacy would be complicated by the fact that Moore's name has already been printed on absentee voter ballots and the deadline for withdrawal from the race has long since passed.

McConnell said Republicans could attempt to win the December 12 special election with a write-in candidate, possibly by Senator Luther Strange, the appointed lawmaker whom Moore defeated for the party's Senate nomination in a primary election in late September. The Republican Senate campaign arm on Friday severed its fund-raising relationship with him for the special election to fill a seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became USA attorney general earlier this year.

Moore's contest against Democrat Doug Moore, a former federal prosecutor, is to fill out the last three years of the seat once held by Jeff Sessions, now attorney general in President Donald Trump's Cabinet.

Moore fully denies the allegations, calling them "completely false" and threatening to sue The Washington Post, which first published the women's stories.
