Roy Moore’s comms director quits amid candidate’s child sex abuse allegations

Just weeks before the special election for Alabama’s open Senate seat, embattled GOP candidate Roy Moore’s communications director up and quit. John Rogers confirmed to The Washingtonian that he has left Moore’s campaign but did not elaborate further. We’re gonna go ahead and speculate that it has something to with the multiple women who have come forward and accused him of sexually harassing or assaulting them when they were teenagers, one as young as 14.

On Tuesday, President Trump broke his silence on the child sex abuse allegations against the former judge by throwing his support behind the guy who was allegedly banned from a local mall for sexually harassing teen employees.

“He denies it,” Trump told reporters before heading to Mar-a-Lago. “He totally denies it. And by the way, he denies it.”

Moore faces off against Democratic opponent Doug Jones on December 12.
