Roy Moore

Mitt Romney comes out swinging against Roy Moore

On Friday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney issued an uncompromising statement on the Roy Moore allegations:

Moore stands accused by four women who say he pursued them when they were teens and he was in his 30s. Leigh Corfman claims Moore kissed and fondled her and "guided her hand to touch him over his underwear" when she was just 14.

Romney — who is probably running for a Utah Senate seat — joins many other conservatives, including the editors of National Review, in calling for Moore to drop out of the race. Others continue to back the Stephen Bannon-endorsed judge, including Jerry Falwell Jr. and Breitbart News.
