Roy Moore, who allegedly pursued teens, blames media

AL Secretary Of State: Moore 'Innocent Until Proven Guilty' Of Sex Allegations

AL Secretary Of State: Moore 'Innocent Until Proven Guilty' Of Sex Allegations

"After 40-something years of fighting this battle, I'm now facing allegations and that's all the press wants to talk about", Moore said while speaking at a church conference in Jackson, Alabama.

Another woman has accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct when she was 16-years-old, the fifth and most brutal allegation levelled against the Alabama Republican Senate Hopeful, the media reported.

Moore, an evangelical Christian who was twice ousted as Alabama's chief justice, suggested he's being attacked for his hardline views on faith in public life as part of an ongoing "spiritual battle".

He also briefly mentioned the ongoing controversy of the accusations of five women claiming he sexually assaulted them. "They've spent over $30 million to try to take me out, they've done everything they could, and now they're together to try to keep me from going to Washington".

According to a Federal Election Commission the GOP establishment continues to break ties with the Alabama Senate candidate.


This came after few women stepped forward, saying Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers.

MCCONNELL: I did, I think he should step aside.

As of Monday, Brooks stood by Moore, telling AL.com, "America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago".

"I believe that the Democrats will do great damage to our country on a myriad of issues", Brooks said.

Is the burden [of proof] on Moore to prove these [allegations] false, versus someone to prove these are true in this situation?
