Saturday Night Live cold open blasts Roy Moore and Jeff Sessions

Social Media Buzz Sexual Misconduct Claims Against Roy Moore Louis C.K. And Others SNL's Sessions: Roy Moore a Little 'Too Alabama'

Almost 40 percent of Alabama evangelicals say in a new poll that they are more likely to vote for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore after allegations of sexual misconduct arose against him. Mike Lee in withdrawing support for Moore amid allegations of decades-old sexual advances on girls.

Teresa Jones, who worked with Moore as a deputy district attorney for Etowah County, Ala., from 1982 until 1985, said that it was "common knowledge" the controversial politician allegedly preferred younger women.

The Washington Post reported last week that the 70-year-old Moore had relationships with teenage girls while he was in his early 30s.

Asked if that would have been usual for him, Moore said, "Not generally, no". "Don't think of it as ending your campaign, think of it as going to conversion therapy to turn yourself into someone who's no longer a candidate", he said.

A poll released by JMC Analytics on Sunday found that 48% of Alabama voters said they were leaning toward supporting Democratic candidate Doug Jones, compared to just 44% who said they were considering supporting Moore. The step comes as Senate Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have called on Moore to step aside in the Alabama Senate race if the allegations are true.

Moore faces Democrat Doug Jones, 63, a former US attorney, in a special election on December 12 to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, now the USA attorney general.

Sen. Pat Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, suggested on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that there could be a write-in campaign for odd because it's too late to remove Moore's name from the ballot.

Despite pressure from top Republicans to drop out of the race following the allegations, Moore has pledged to stay in the race and disprove the accusations.

"I will never give up the fight", Moore tweeted Thursday.
