Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday called for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to “step aside,” according to the Washington Post.
“I think he should step aside,” said McConnell. McConnell was asked if he believes the allegations are true.
“I believe the women,” he said.
His comments come after the Post reported that a woman accused Moore of initiating sexual contact with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32.
The Post reported Thursday that Moore that initiated a sexual encounter when she was 14 and Moore was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney.
Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations.
Multiple lawmakers have called for Moore to step aside following the reports.
