Will Roy Moore Sex Allegations Hurt GOP in the Long Run? 'Daily Briefing' Discusses
"The Daily Briefing" discussed whether allegations of sexual misconduct against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore could have larger implications for the GOP.
"These allegations have far-stretching impact on the party," Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell said. "It could be very problematic for our party similar to what happened in Charlottesville."
Moore was accused by four women of pursuing sexual relationships with them when they were underage. Two of the women were only 14 and 16 when they say Moore sexually assaulted them.
Moore has denied all allegations, but many Senate Republicans have renounced his candidacy, asking him to drop out of the race.
Former Obama campaign consultant Marjorie Clifton said Moore's response, that the claims are a desperate attempt by Democrats to smear him, was troubling as well.
"What Roy has done wrong is basically attacking the victims themselves," Clifton said.
Polls open for the Alabama Senate race on December 12.
