The Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney on Sunday defended President Trump's silence on the sexual misconduct accusations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, while a national conversation has bubbled up over the prevalence of sexual harassment in politics.
Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones in the special election on December 12.
Barber and other speakers claimed Moore's campaign is fueled by a perversion of Christianity linked with white supremacy, and Moore is trying to take those forces to the Senate.
Moore has been dogged by allegations that he sexually assaulted two women decades ago when they were teenagers.
One of them is longtime Republican Tracy James, who worked for former senator and current U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Friday that there are no similarities between the Trump and Franken accusations.Читайте также: Mumbai attack mastermind's nephew among 6 militants killed in Kashmir

Mulvaley said he believes the accusations "are credible", but he still doesn't know "who to believe". Another said Moore assaulted her when she was a 16-year-old waitress after he offered to drive her home.
Susan Collins said on Sunday that she does not believe Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's denials of the sexual allegations against him and hopes the state's voters do not send him to Washington. He has run multiple times.

Moore has continued to deny the allegations and he says he will not drop out of the race. However, Ivey says she will vote for Moore anyway for the sake of GOP power in Congress. "To the people of Alabama, thank you for being smarter than they think you are", Moore said. I don't think you have seen him issue an endorsement. "That they can't seem to come to terms with the reality that their president is just as guilty as Roy Moore".
Moore himself called the allegations "unsubstantiated", "unproven" and "fake" but refused to answer questions from reporters about the allegations.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
