Kellyanne Conway: Anyone in Public Office Who Has Mistreated Women Should ‘Step Aside’

Kellyanne Conway spent several minutes Sunday morning refusing to say whether she believes the four women who have accused Alabama’s GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, including one who just 14 years old at the time. Again and again, Conway would only say to ABC News’ This Week host Martha Raddatz that Moore should step aside “if the allegations are true.” But then, toward the end of the conversation, she went a step further. “If there’s anyone currently in public office who has behaved that way to any girl or woman, maybe they should step aside. In a country of 330 million people, we ought to be able to do better than this,” Conway said. At least 13 different women have accused President Donald Trump of sexual harassment or assault. Last month, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the administration believes all of those women are “lying.”
