Megyn Kelly: Donald Trump Is 'Tone Deaf' for Criticizing Al Franken

"He will not step down". "Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither", Clinton told NY radio station WABC. Tweeden said on Thursday that she accepted Franken's apology and does not believe he should resign over the incident.

"It was a known fact: Roy Moore liked young girls", recalled retired Gadsden police officer Faye Gary. "We would have to seat him, but I hope we don't get there".

Moore has pledged to fight the accusations against him as the state GOP in Alabama reaffirmed its support for the embattled candidate.

President Trump lashed out on Twitter on Thursday night against Sen.

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 past year during the 2016 presidential campaign. Several of his accusers have allowed their identities to be made public. Trump tweeted. "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women".

Among the women who have accused Trump of assault is Jessica Leeds, who told NPR previous year that Trump groped and kissed her during a flight to NY as she tried to fight him off. Other women have said he pursued them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

Ivey said she has no reason to disbelieve women who have come forward to make allegations of wrongdoing by Moore but said the "timing is a little curious". Al Franken, D-Minn., after a woman came forward to accuse Franken of groping her in 2006.

"We need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on the things like Supreme Court justices", Ivey said.

Almost 60 Alabama pastors have signed a letter denouncing Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, saying "his extremist values and actions are not consistent with traditional Christian values or good Christian character" and that he's not fit for office.

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".

Republicans hold a 52-48 Senate. majority.

It shows the Democrat Jones with 50 percent support and Moore with only 42 percent support.

One of them is longtime Republican Tracy James, who worked for former senator and current U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

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.

Ivey said she saw "no reason" to move the date of the election, a possibility some have raised as a last-gasp try by party leaders to prevent Moore from being elected.

"Years later", Moore wrote, when she was 23 - she's 14 years his junior- he finally met her.

Moore has continued to deny the allegations and he says he will not drop out of the race. When something pops up on social media that could help his cause, she shares it on Facebook.

"It just did not look appropriate", she stated.
