Kayla Moore, wife of Senate candidate Roy Moore, said she and her husband intend to sue The Washington Post for defamation over the story it published Thursday claiming the Alabama Republican made inappropriate sexual advances toward teenage girls four decades ago, Raw Story reports.

The story about the potential lawsuit was also reported on WRBC-TV in Birmingham, Ala., on Sunday.

After the Post story was published, Moore's campaign issued a statement that said, "this garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation."

Following Moore's statement, CRTV host Steve Deace tweeted Thursday, "Judge Moore's wife, Kayla, informed me today they used the word 'defamation' in their statement for a reason — they intend to pursue legal action against the Washington Post."
