GOP Senators Urge Moore to Quit as Fifth Woman Comes Forward
“I believe the women.” So said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who’s asked candidate Roy Moore to step aside after a fifth woman came forward saying Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16. Today, House Speaker Paul Ryan echoed McConnell’s call. Some Republicans are even urging a write-in campaign to re-elect Jeff Sessions, who vacated the seat originally. Meanwhile, Congress will hold a hearing today about harassment on the Hill after dozens of people spoke up saying that such behavior is endemic and that reporting procedures are biased against victims.
