Indiana Senator Todd Young is the latest Republican to say Alabama Republican Senate Nominee Roy Moore should drop out of the election.
Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior with teenage girls while he was in his 30's. Moore has denied these accusations.
Senate Majority Leader and Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell told reporters on Monday he believes the women accusing Moore and says the Alabama Senate candidate should step aside.
Senator Young agrees, writing on Twitter on Monday that Moore should drop out the race. He goes on to say that if Moore doesn't not drop out and is elected that the Senate should act to maintain its integrity.
After giving Roy Moore ample time to unequivocally deny the disturbing allegations against him, those allegations remain far more persuasive than the denials. Roy Moore should immediately drop out of the race. (1/2)— Senator Todd Young (@SenToddYoung) November 13, 2017
The appearance of grossly reprehensible behavior disqualifies him from service in the United States Senate. If he does not step aside, we need to act to protect the integrity of the Senate (2/2)— Senator Todd Young (@SenToddYoung) November 13, 2017
