Could Roy Moore allegations help Doug Jones win?
With 33 days until the Dec. 12 special election for the U.S. Senate seat once held by Jeff Sessions, The Washington Post on Thursday dropped a bombshell accusation — a claim from a woman that she had a sexual encounter with former Chief Justice Roy Moore in 1979 when she was 14 and he was 32.
Moore, who has denied the accusations, had 51 percent of support to 40 percent for Democrat Doug Jones, according to a poll released Wednesday. And 9 percent of poll participants declared themselves undecided.
State law prohibits the replacement of a party candidate up to 76 days before the election, meaning Moore will remain on the ballot.
But what are his chances? Could the accusations, which drew rebuke from some in Moore’s own party, give Jones the boost the need to win the election and give Alabama its first Democratic U.S. Senator in 20 years?
