In addition to Corfman, who is now 53, three other women interviewed by the Post in recent weeks said that Moore pursued them while they were in their teens and he was in his 30s.

She told the Post: "I wasn't ready for that - I had never put my hand on a man's penis, much less an erect one".

Moore, on a second visit, took off Corfman's shirt and trousers and he removed his own clothes, the report said, which added that he touched her over her bra and underwear and "he guided her hand to touch him over his underwear".

"Consensual, that's true", Hannity said, the Washington Examiner reported. But we're talking something that somebody said happened, 40 years ago. "I disagree with him 100 percent".

The White House has issued a response to allegations against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. "I believe you and I have a duty to stand up and fight back against the forces of evil waging an all-out war on our conservative values!" "I'm not saying I support what he did".

Doug Jones, Moore's Democratic opponent, has simply said: "Roy Moore needs to answer these serious charges".

However, in Alabama it is considered sexual abuse in the second degree if an adult 19 years old or older has sexual contact with a child between the ages of 12 and 16 - and Corfman alleged she was 14 when her encounters with the 32-year-old Moore occurred. There's one. There is one allegation of a woman.

He made news during Green Bay's bye week when he announced he was planning to retire at the end of the 2017 season. Bennett thrived in New England last season, catching 55 passes for 701 yards and a career-high seven touchdowns.

"You know, it is amusing too, because Democrats never called on Bill Clinton to step down after he was-you know, after all the stuff that happened with him".

Merrill added that people "make things up all the time" and that he thinks it's possible Thursday's story about Moore was made up, too. "It's 'He said, she [said],'" Hannity charged.

Politicians were quick to condemn Moore's act and there were calls for him to withdraw from the race if the allegations proved to be true. It echoed a line of defense Moore also took in his denial to the Post.

Ziegler went on to compare the allegations to biblical stories saying, "Also take Joseph and Mary".

"Zechariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist", Zeigler said.

"There's just nothing immoral or illegal here", Ziegler concluded. Senior Senate Republicans also spoke out against Moore. Several Republicans, including Alabama's senior US senator, Richard Shelby, have decried the ban as well. Some like Arizona Senator John McCain have said Moore should immediately drop out.

Those defending Moore were accused of taking a hypocritical stance. He believes in transgender bathrooms and transgenders in the military. "The party can not lead in this condition".
