Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Roy Moore "should step aside" from his U.S. Senate bid in light of allegations that he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl when he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney in Alabama. McConnell says he believes women who have accused Moore of inappropriate sexual contact.

Last week, Moore was accused of initiating a sexual relationship with a girl who was 14-years-old at the time.

The Washington Post reported last week that four women accused Alabama Republican Roy Moore of pursuing them when they were teens and he was in his 30s. One of the women was 14 years of age, and the other three were between the ages of 16 and 18, according to the report.
