GOP Sen. Toomey: Roy Moore Should Step Aside Over Sex Allegations

GOP Senator: Allegations Against Moore 'Have More Credibility' Than His Denial

U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana has withdrawn his support for Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama over allegations of sexual misconduct by Moore years ago.

Other Republicans officials have called for Moore to leave the race if the allegations are true.

"There's no Senate seat more important than the notion of child pedophilia ... but having said that, he has not been proven guilty".

'In the next few days there will be revelations about the motivation and the content of this article, ' Moore said during a Birmingham campaign rally on Saturday. Moore, now 70, has denied any wrongdoing. These allegations came only four and a half weeks before the general election on December 12.

Perhaps Democratic candidate Doug Jones has found his new slogan?

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who seems to enjoy weighing in on issues well beyond his purview, told CNN's Jake Tapper that "if the allegations prove to be true, he should step down". "It appears that there is a significant issue here that needs to be addressed".

Three other woman also said Moore approached them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18. "I think it would be best if Roy would just step aside". "You know, this is a bad situation", Toomey said on NBC News' "Meet the Press".

The election is December 12.

Toomey didn't rule out the possibility that Senate Republicans might work to unseat Moore if he wins the special election against Democrat Doug Jones on December 12.

Despite pressure from top Republicans to drop out of the race following the allegations, Moore has pledged to stay in the race and disprove the accusations. They included the head of the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Texas Sen.

He suggested that Republicans "should consider a write-in" candidate for the Alabama Senate race but said there's "no easy solution".

"I will never give up the fight", Moore tweeted Thursday.

Moore's name remains on the ballot and he intends to win the election.
