Four women have come forward to The Washington Post alleging that Roy Moore—the former Alabama judge who was twice removed from the state’s supreme court and is currently the GOP nominee for Senate—pursued them for sexual relationships when they were young teens. More than one of the women reportedly said he pursued her when she was only 14 years old. “I wanted it over with—I wanted out,” she told the Post of her sexual encounter with Moore. “Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.” One of the women said she was 14 and working at the mall as a Santa’s helper when she was approached by Moore. Another said she was 17 when Moore spoke to her high-school civics class and then pursued a relationship with her that never progressed “beyond kissing.” Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler, who supports Moore, reportedly brushed off the allegations. “Even if you accept the Washington Post’s report as being completely true, it’s much ado about very little,” he said, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.
