Republican Moore faces allegations in senate elections

Republican Roy Moore’s senate race in Alabama is threatened by allegations of sexual misconduct.

Ultraconservative Republican candidate Roy Moore is ahead by a narrow margin in the race for Alabama’s senate seat.

But damning new allegations of sexual harassment against him are threatening his candidacy.

Moore contends that the allegations are false, and part of a smear campaign, but more than one woman has come forth to allege the same.
