Republican Sen. Susan Collins Says She Does Not Believe Roy Moore's Denials

Roy Moore accuser'I wonder how many me's he doesn't know

The Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney on Sunday defended President Trump's silence on the sexual misconduct accusations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, while a national conversation has bubbled up over the prevalence of sexual harassment in politics.

"It's disturbing that many of Trump's diehard supporters are so stubborn", Mindy McGillivray, who says Trump groped her while she was attending a concert at Mar-a-Lago in 2003, told People.

Not everyone is sticking with Roy Moore, however, and certainly not all women.

For days, he refused to call on Republican senate hopeful Roy Moore to bow out of the race after being accused of sexual advances toward multiple underaged girls. Five others said Moore pursued romantic relationships with them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18.

"The timing is a little curious, but at the same time, I have no reason to disbelieve them", Ivey said.

The president's relative silence on Moore and the national conversation on the pervasiveness of sexual harassment in America has drawn renewed attention to women who made their own allegations against Trump previous year during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The group said it was "committed to protecting women and children from similar acts of sexual misconduct".

Mr Trump took to Twitter to hit out at Senator Al Franken who, it emerged earlier in the day, was photographed in 2006 groping a sports broadcaster's breasts while she was asleep.


Republicans hold a 52-48 Senate. majority.

"My hope is that the Moore debacle will not only be a wake-up call for evangelicals, but also for Republicans, who should stand back and say, 'Wow, look at the kind of person we nearly elected to our ranks", James said.

Alabama voters will go to the ballot box on December 12 to choose between Moore and Democrat Doug Jones.

Last week, Moore's wife, Kayla, released a letter of support that was signed by 53 Alabama pastors that stated he was an "immovable rock in the culture wars". She said the state needs to send a Republican to Washington.

When asked about Trump's accusers, Blunt said, "whatever they had to say, people heard that and they elected President Trump President of the United States".

Now, Kayla Moore is doing more than standing by her husband - she's his most aggressive defender against allegations threatening his Republican bid for U.S. Senate.

Sanders also refused to say whether Trump was pulling his endorsement of the candidate. "He will not stop fighting for the people of Alabama", she said.
