Sources from interim Sen. Luther Strange's campaign told the Washington Examiner that they tried but failed to confirm the "open secret" allegations against Roy Moore in Alabama.

Campaign operatives for Strange, who eventually lost to Moore in a September GOP primary runoff to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the Senate, heard months ago that Moore "liked to chase women around the courthouse," the Examiner reported.

"We did a lot of research. We tried and tried and tried," one source told the Examiner. "I think if we were able to find the names out, we probably would have passed it along to a reporter to track down . . . We just weren't able."

However, even those operatives told the Examiner the rumors they heard were nothing to the extent of last week's Washington Post report — that Moore pursued and sexually assaulted minors.

Five women in all have come out publicly with their allegations against Moore from nearly 40 years ago.

One Strange campaign source also told the Examiner that the rumors weren't as open as everybody now thinks they are.

"You'd have thought fooling around with young girls would have come out in one of the chief justice races, which tells me it wasn't that open. Those were contentious races," the sourced told the Examiner. "It's easy when people say 'it was an open secret' now."

Moore was twice the chief justice of the Alabama state Supreme Court.

Moore has remained steadfast in his denials and defiant in the face of many calls for him to step aside ahead of the Dec. 12 special election against Democrat Doug Jones.
