Roy Moore press conference livestream: Watch Gloria Allred, new accuser address charges
Another Alabama woman is coming forward with allegations against Senate candidate Roy Moore.
The woman, whose name has not been released, will be joined by attorney Gloria Allred in a press conference today at 2:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. CT).
A livestream of the press conference will be included below once available.
Moore has denied claims he sexually abused a young girl or pursued other teens in the wake of a bombshell report last week by the Washington Post.
Leigh Corfman said she was 14 when she was with Moore, who was then a 32-year old assistant district attorney in Etowah County. Corfman told The Post Moore undressed her and touched her over her bra and underpants while guiding her hand towards his genitals. The other women said they dated Moore when they were in their teens, but the relationships didn’t progress beyond kissing.
The report has led to calls for Moore to step aside ahead of the Dec. 12 election versus Democrat Roy Moore.
On Monday, Senate leader Mitch McConnell join in the calls for Moore exit the race.

Moore has called the reports "completely false and a desperate political attack."
"The Post has already endorsed the judge’s opponent and for months has engaged in a systematic campaign to distort the truth about the judge’s record and career and derail his campaign," Moore spokesperson Bill Armistead said.
