Roy Moore Says He's Being 'Harassed' By The Media

If not, Hannity - who supported Moore early on - will withdraw his support.

U.S. Rep. Jody Hice has withdrawn his endorsement of the Alabama Senate candidate accused of inappropriate contact with teenage girls in the 1970s.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee found that Democrat Doug Jones led Moore by 12 points - 51 percent to 39 percent - in a survey of 500 Alabama voters conducted Sunday and Monday.

"I have no reason to doubt these young women", Sessions said, but declined to comment on whether Moore should drop out of the race.

"[Sexual assault] is a lifelong impact that people often don't start dealing with until they're 30, 40, 50 years old".

It's been almost a week since The Washington Post reported the first sexual misconduct allegations against Moore. The election is December 12.

The Fox News host, among the GOP Senate hopeful's most prominent supporters in the media, began to distance himself from Moore on Tuesday night when he gave the candidate 24 hours to explain his inconsistencies in his defense against the sexual allegations against him.

Exhausted of the inconsistencies in Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's explanations regarding the allegations of sexual misconduct against him, Fox News host Sean Hannity issued him an ultimatum: explain everything truthfully or drop out of the race.

But in September, Hice and other members of the House Freedom Caucus urged Alabamians to send Moore to Washington.

An Alabama man says he received a phone message from someone claiming to be a Post reporter willing to pay thousands of dollars for dirt on Senate candidate Moore. She said he stopped when she fell or was pushed out of the auto and claims he warned her no one would believe because he was a county D.A.; her evidence includes a 1977 high school yearbook signed "Love, Roy Moore".

Sources close to Breitbart chief Steve Bannon told CNN he is sticking with Moore for the seat, wanting to dispel any notions that Bannon is turning on Moore, as a Drudge Report banner suggested Wednesday. Moore has repeatedly denied allegations of sexual misconduct years ago.

Hice said he's troubled by Moore's explanations of the allegations against him in the past week.

President Donald Trump spent five days in Asia largely keeping the Alabama Senate scandal at bay.

His allies charge the allegations are coming to light only now because Moore is on the verge of being elected as one of Alabama's US senators. The party has little interest in alienating Moore's followers a year before elections in which the governor's office and entire state legislature will be in play.
