Roy Moore's campaign calls story 'fake news'

Roy Moore speaks to students at ACA in Tuscaloosa Wednesday
Texas' two USA senators found themselves under intense pressure Thursday after explosive allegations surfaced that a candidate both men have endorsed pursued underage teenage girls decades ago. The reports also recounts alleged pursuits of other teenage girls when the 70-year-old Moore was in his 30s.
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.
"Judge" Roy Moore in 1996 cited "the laws of the State of Alabama and the Laws of Nature", and compared homosexuality to murder in a divorce case in which he barred a mother from her own children while unsupervised or with her partner.
He told the paper: "These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign".
"This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation", his campaign said in a statement. Marion County GOP Chairman David Hall dismissed the accusations, telling Dale that the story told by the woman who was 14 at the time was irrelevant because "she's not saying that anything happened other than they kissed".
"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", Corfman tells the Post. He offers to watch over the girl while her mother goes into a child custody hearing.
Nancy Wells, Corfman's mother, told the Washington Post that Corfman told her about the encounter more than a decade later.
Corfman told the Post "she began to feel she had done something wrong".
Corfman alleges that after receiving her phone number, Moore picked her up in a vehicle days later in Gadsden and drove 30 minutes to his home in the woods.

Speaking on Congress party's stance on demonetisation, Singh observed that the party and their leadership, is upset. The Congress has become "incorrect news Congress" and the "biggest source of false news", the BJP chief said.
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.
Said Gardner in a statement: "The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling".
Republican senators have been slow to endorse Moore, with just five - including Cornyn - backing him so far.
Roy Moore won a September primary election against a mainstream Republican who was backed by US President Donald Trump.
After winning his position back in 2012, he was again forced out after defying the US Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage by ordering probate judges not to give marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The first time, he had flouted a court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the courthouse.
An Alabama Senate race that was uncomfortable for many Republicans just became downright painful.
To get there, Moore - with the support of former White House adviser Steve Bannon - beat incumbent U.S. Sen. Now they're on the verge of falling off a political cliff and losing a safe seat in the closely divided US Senate.
Even if Moore was allowed to step down, Alabama state election laws bar nominations within 76 days of election day.
A conservative could try a write-in campaign, but those are notoriously hard to pull off even when there's more than a month until election day. A special election will be held on December 12.
