More than a dozen of the fifty-two Republicans in the Senate declare that Roy Moore should draw out of the Senate race in AL as he faces a myriad of sexual misconduct allegations.

Over the latest week, a woman accused Moore, now seventy, of initiating a sexual encounter with her when she was fourteen years elderly and he was thirty-two in the one thousand nine hundred seventy, according to a WA Post report. Another woman accused Moore of sexual assaulting her when she was sixteen years old, and he was AL district attorney, among other allegations involving youthful women.

Senate Majority Boss Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said Monday that Moore "should step aside" from his Senate tender because of the accusations.

The chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, not only withdrew support for Moore on Monday, but said that the upper chamber should vote to expel him, should he win the election.

"If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he doesn't meet the ethical and ethical requirements of the United States Senate," he said in a statement.

Here'south the list of GOP senators calling on Moore to withdraw from the race:

  1. Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-Louisiana
  2. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine
  3. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas
  4. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas
  5. Sen. Steve Daines, R-Montana
  6. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona
  7. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado
  8. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa
  9. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina
  10. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah
  11. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah
  12. Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona
  13. Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky
  14. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania
  15. Sen. Todd Young, R-Indiana

In testimony before a House committee Tuesday, Attorney Common Jeff Sessions commented on Moore, who'south running for his former seat. While he said that the Justice Dept will assess every case of sexual misconduct allegations against candidate Roy Moore, "This case would normally be a state case," he said.

"I've number reason to doubt these youthful women," Sessions said on the five women who have accused Moore of sexual misconduct.

Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, weighed in on the situation involving Moore on Tuesday.

"He should step aside," the WI Republican said at a press conference with House GOP leaders when asked about Moore, who faces allegations of sexual assault and sexual misconduct involving women who were fourteen years elderly and sixteen years elderly at the time.

Ryan said that the allegations "are credible."

"If he cares about the values and the people who claims to care about, then he should step aside," he said.

The special election in AL is scheduled for Dec. twelve.

If Moore continues in the race, the Senate could vote to expel him, as Sen. Gardner has suggested doing. The upper chamber hasn't expelled a sitting senator in more than a cent and nearly all of the fifteen who were expelled happened because they supported the Confederacy during the civil war.
