SNL's Sessions: Roy Moore a Little 'Too Alabama'

The Washington Post reported last week that a 53-year-old woman accused Moore of initiating sexual contact with her when she was 14 and he was 32. "But there seems to be enough there that it's very disturbing", Toomey said.

Sen. Pat Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, suggested on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that there could be a write-in campaign for unusual because it's too late to remove Moore's name from the ballot. After some more pressure, Moore pleads with Pence to call his boss about the matter... and Pence says, "Sorry, I'm not gonna call Vladimir Putin about this". "I think that's a responsible way to approach this".

Speaking on NBC, Toomey says because the "accusations have more credibility than the denial, I think it would be best if Roy would just step aside".

Alabama holds a special election on December 12 to fill the U.S. Senate seat previously held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

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. Still, in an interview with conservative radio host Sean Hannity, he did not wholly rule out dating teenage girls when he was in his early 30s. We have to afford him the chance to defend himself, " he said. Kate McKinnon as Jeff Sessions!

A former colleague of embattled Alabama Republican Senate Nominee Roy Moore said on Saturday that it was open secret the former judge dated high school girls during the 1980s. "The president and others in the Republican Party have made clear that if the allegations are true, this man should step aside". 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.

Many Republican lawmakers had already distanced themselves from Moore, who was twice removed as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for defying federal court rulings.
