Republican Roy Moore shamed by teenage Twitter photos

Stephen Colbert had some pointed barbs for Roy Moore, the embattled Republican candidate for United States Senator in Alabama, on Tuesday's episode of The Late Show. Three other women, all on the record, have said that Roy Moore pursued them when they were between 16 and 18 years old.

MCCONNELL: That is an option. "This close to election, it's a complicated matter'". His name remains on the ballot for the December 12 special election against Doug Jones.

"These allegations are credible", Ryan, R-Wis., told reporters. "Number two, if he cares about the values and people he claims to care about, then he should step aside". All were initially reluctant to speak publicly but chose to do so after multiple interviews, saying they thought it was important for people to know about their interactions with Moore. McConnell says he expects to discuss the issue with President Donald Trump once he returns to Washington.

But by Monday afternoon, Hawley issued a statement more aggressive in tone, noting that a fifth woman had come forward with allegations against Moore. Underscoring his defiance, he tweeted Tuesday, "Alabamians will not be fooled by this #InsideHitJob".

Moore has suggested that McConnell and other establishment Republicans were working in tandem with news media to discredit him. "The fight has just begun". "Moore is unfit for office and should step aside". "It's too damn late".

Earlier in the day, Sessions said in testimony before Congress that he had no reason to doubt the five women who have accused Moore of misconduct when they were in their teens.

John Rogers, a spokesman for the Roy Moore campaign, could not be immediately reached by The Post.

Moore said on Monday that Nelson's accusations were "absolutely false".

But this growing criticism has yet to sweep over key Republicans in Alabama.

Some Republicans have floated the idea of abandoning Moore and rallying around a write-in candidate, perhaps Sessions, who remains popular in Alabama.

Sessions held the Senate seat he held before joining Trump's administration this year. Only 11% say they're less likely to support him. Luther Strange, whom Moore defeated in a September party primary, would have little chance against Moore.

Moments before, Colbert displayed a photo of Moore speaking onstage with his arm outstretched and likened him to a "man demonstrating how tall you must be to date him". But that risks leaving the seat unfilled for a period of time.
