Alabama GOP Senate Candidate Judge Roy Moore was accused of sexual
misconduct with a teenage girl when he was 32 in a new Washington Post

According to the article, 32-year old Moore, a prosecutor at the time,
approached a 14-year old girl outside of a court room: 

        Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her
        phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up
        around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30
        minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was
        and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her
        shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her
        bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him
        over his underwear.
        Two of Corfman’s childhood friends say she told them at the time
        that she was seeing an older man, and one says Corfman
        identified the man as Moore. Wells says her daughter told her
        about the encounter more than a decade later, as Moore was
        becoming more prominent as a local judge.
        Aside from Corfman, three other women interviewed by The
        Washington Post in recent weeks say Moore pursued them when they
        were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s,
        episodes they say they found flattering at the time, but
        troubling as they got older. None of the three women say that
        Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual

The Roy Moore for Senate campaign responded. Here is their full

        Today, the Judge Roy Moore Campaign for U.S. Senate issued a
        statement responding to yet another baseless political attack by
        the Washington Post, a paper that has endorsed Judge Moore's
        opponent. Moore campaign chair Bill Armistead released the
        following statement on Thursday afternoon: 
        "Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any
        candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in
        today's Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the
        cake.  National liberal organizations know their chosen
        candidate Doug Jones is in a death spiral, and this is their
        last ditch Hail Mary.
        "The Washington Post has already endorsed the Judge's opponent,
        and for months, they have engaged in a systematic campaign to
        distort the truth about the Judge's record and career and derail
        his campaign.  In fact, just two days ago, the Foundation for
        Moral Law sent a retraction demand to the Post for the false
        stories they wrote about the Judge's work and compensation.  But
        apparently, there is no end to what the Post will allege. 
        "The Judge has been married to Kayla for nearly 33 years, has 4
        children, and 5 grandchildren.  He has been a candidate in four
        hotly-contested statewide political contests, twice as a
        gubernatorial candidate and twice as a candidate for chief
        justice.  He has been a three-time candidate for local office,
        and he has been a national figure in two ground-breaking,
        judicial fights over religious liberty and traditional marriage.
        After over 40 years of public service, if any of these
        allegations were true, they would have been made public long
        before now.
        "Judge Roy Moore is winning with a double-digit lead.  So it is
        no surprise, with just over four weeks remaining, in a race for
        the U.S. Senate with national implications, that the Democratic
        Party and the country's most liberal newspaper would come up
        with a fabrication of this kind.
        "This garbage is the very definition of fake news and
        intentional defamation."
        On Thursday, Judge Moore called the allegations by
        the Post "completely false and a desperate political attack." 

The special election will be held on December 8th
