It's been almost a week since The Washington Post reported the first sexual misconduct allegations against Moore. None said he forced them into sexual contact, but one, Leigh Corfman, said Moore took off her shirt and trousers, removed his clothes, touched her over her bra and underpants and guided her hand over his underwear. Then another woman, Beverly Young Nelson, appeared at a press conference with liberal lawyer Gloria Allred and accused Moore of trying to force himself on her in his vehicle when she was 16 years old. He added that Moore's assistant when he was presiding over Nelson's divorce proceedings was named Delver Adams, who typically stamped his initials on court filings.
According to internal polling conducted by the Senate GOP campaign arm and reviewed by The Associated Press, Moore trails Democrat Doug Jones by 12 points - 39 percent to 51 percent - in the survey conducted on Sunday and Monday. Moore could be expelled from the Senate if he wins the election. Moore downplayed the sexual assault allegations against him and said he was being harassed by the media.
