Roy Moore: 'I Never Molested Anyone'

By    |   Sunday, 10 December 2017 02:06 PM

Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore is denying he ever dated underage women — or that he knew those who’ve accused him of sexual assault or molestation.

In an interview aired Sunday on "The Voice of Alabama Politics,” the former judge insisted “I never molested anyone.”

"I had no encounter with them,” he said. “I never molested anyone, and for them to say that, I don't know why they're saying it, but it's not true."

Moore, who is running against Democrat Doug Jones in a special election Tuesday to fill the Senate vacancy left by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has been accused by several women of pursuing sexual relationships with them when they were teenagers, molesting a 14-year-old and sexually assaulting a 16-year-old when he was in his 30s.

"I said I did not know any of them women who have charged me with sexual allegation of molestation, and I did not know any of the women,” he said. “When I saw these pictures on the advertisements of my opponent, I didn't recognize any of those women. I did not know them.”

Commenting on one of his accusers, Beverly Young Nelson, who presented an inscription that she alleges Moore wrote in her years, Moore conceded that “I have written cards, graduation cards.”

"I have known families,” he said. “I know a lot of people throughout my life, but these allegations are completely false. I did not date underage women. I did not molest anyone and so, these allegations are false."

Moore suggested his accusers’ allegations may have been in part sparked by his views against same-sex marriage and past support of a Ten Commandments monument inside the Alabama Judicial Building.

"They know I stood for moral values,” he said. “So they're attacking me in that area, and I understand that. But it's also part of the scheme of political parties today and political candidates and both parties, quite frankly, to degrade your opponent — to take him down so you appear to go up. That's just a simple political tactic."
