Three other women accused Moore of pursuing them, according to the Post.

Republican Senator John McCain said Moore should step aside, calling the allegations "deeply disturbing and disqualifying".

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama.

Less than an hour after the Washington Post's bombshell report, Republicans were disavowing Moore, who ran as an outsider and defeated the more establishment Sen.

Cory Gardner of Colorado was one of several Republicans on Thursday to demand that Roy Moore end his campaign to become Alabama's next GOP senator if allegations of past sexual misconduct prove true. With the special election for the Senate seat formerly occupied by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions set for December 12, Moore's name can not be removed should he choose to withdraw. He took off her shirt and touched her bra and underwear while also guiding her hand over his trousers, Ms. Corfman told The Post.

Moore's campaign also tried to preemptively get out in front of the Post's report by speaking to Breitbart, a far-right website that caters to politicians like Moore, prior to the Post publishing its report.

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says.

During the first encounter, Corfman says, Moore met her and her mother on a bench outside of a courtroom in Etowah County, Alabama, and offered to watch the 14-year-old while her mother went in for a child custody hearing.

"Obviously, it's very troubling, but I think people are trying to sort it out and figure out what the appropriate response is, including Sen".

"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", she told the Post of that day.

It's too late to take Moore's name off the ballot, according to National Public Radio.

Moore and his campaign denied the allegations in a written statement, calling them "completely false" and "a desperate political attack". She remembers that Moore told her she was pretty, put his arm around her and kissed her, and that she began to feel nervous and asked him to take her home, which she says he did.

One woman, Leigh Corfman, said she was 14 in 1979 when Moore, then 32, undressed her, groped her and had her touch him, though they did not have intercourse.

Former White House chief strategist backed Moore in the GOP primary. Luther Strange. Moore won the primary. He has been twice removed as chief justice of the state supreme court, first for refusing to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from the grounds of his courthouse and more recently for refusing to implement the USA supreme court ruling legalizing gay marriage. "If these allegations are found to be true, Roy Moore must drop out of the Alabama special Senate election".

All four were quoted under their full names by the newspaper, and other witnesses confirmed they shared their stories with them at the time.

Moore, a conservative Christian, has consistently led in polls over his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, in a state dominated by Republicans. Corfman never filed a police report or a civil suit, the Post said. The age of consent in Alabama in 1979 was, and remains, 16 years old.
