Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., is calling for additional steps to protect the young people who work as congressional pages in the event Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore wins on Tuesday.

Her comments came in a letter to the Senate Sergeant at Arms and were first reported by The Hill.

"I write you today to share my urgent concern regarding the threat to the safety of the young men and women working in the United State Senate Page Program if Roy Moore becomes the U.S. Senator to Alabama," she said.

She said the pages are away from home and in a vulnerable position.

"It would unconscionable for Congress to not be vigilant and proactive in taking precautions to safeguard these children given the well sourced allegations against Roy Moore," she said.

The Hill reported the pages are often in high school and as young as 16.

Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct with teenagers.

"The U.S. Congress has an obligation to keep these students safe especially in light of known potential harm," she said.
