Roy Moore seizes on Al Franken groping allegations

Standing on the white marble steps of the state Capitol, Kayla Moore was joined by several dozen women at a rally supporting Moore as she spoke in defense of her husband.

"To the president, I would say: Now would be a good time to get some things done in Congress", she added to the president.

"It's disturbing that many of Trump's diehard supporters are so stubborn", Mindy McGillivray, who says Trump groped her while she was attending a concert at Mar-a-Lago in 2003, told People.

In a tweet, Moore, who is facing calls to drop of the Senate race after multiple women have accused him of sexual misconduct in the past, attacked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell over his differing responses. Al Franken on Thursday by arguing a double standard is at play.

"One of the problems in this state is that people continue to put a political party above what is in the best interest of the state and what's in the best interest of the country", said Jones. The women discussed what it's been like for them as more and more men in power are being publicly condemned for accusations of sexual misconduct in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

"I do not recognize the Roy Moore these ladies are describing", Ann Eubank, a longtime fixture in Republican politics.

While President Trump ignored shouted questions from reporters about Moore on Wednesday, the first daughter weighed in on the scandal surrounding the firebrand former Alabama judge, telling the Associated Press that she has seen no evidence discrediting his accusers.

Reuters was unable to independently verify the allegations from either woman, and Moore's campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
