Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-Va., said Friday that Roy Moore — the Republican candidate in the Alabama Senate race who has been accused of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls four decades ago — should drop out of the race.

Comstock, who first took office on Capitol Hill in 2015, released a statement Friday denouncing what Moore is alleged to have done.

"Harvey Weinstein, Anthony Weiner, Roger Ailes, Roy Moore … No MOORE of this," Comstock wrote, before calling on Moore to pull out of the race that has gained national attention.

Moore edged out Sen. Luther Strange in the Republican primary to earn the GOP spot on the ballot for December's special election that is being held to replace the seat formerly occupied by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

This week, it was claimed Moore — a former Alabama Chief Justice — made advances on four teenage girls 38 years ago. Many Republicans have already called on Moore to step aside and abandon his Senate hopes. Moore responded by saying the allegations are false and he will remain in the race.
