Roy Moore wrote a letter to Sean Hannity, saying the sexual offend accusations are just a political witch hunt created to help his Democratic opponent.
“I am suffering the same treatment other Republicans have had to endure,” Moore said in the letter. “A month prior to the general election for U.S. Senate in Alabama, I have been attacked by the Washington Post and other liberal media in a desperate attempt to smear my character and defeat my campaign.”

He wrote the letter as a response to Hannity ‘s demand to address the sexual misconduct allegations.
Hannity responded to Moore’s open letter by pointing out that the Alabama voters will decide his fate and not some media or political operatives.
“[Alabama voters] will make the best decision for their state,” Hannity said Wednesday night. “It shouldn’t be decided by me, by people on television, by Mitch McConnell, by Washington, talk show hosts, or news people.”
After the allegations, many Republicans withdrew their support and demanded Moore to drop out of the race, but he said there is no way he’ll do that.
Moore pointed out that in 1999 he supervised Beverly Nelson, one of his accusers, divorce proceedings and that she never asked him to recuse himself.
“The most recent accuser, Beverly Nelson, was a party in a divorce action before me in Etowah County Circuit Court in 1999. No motion was made for me to recuse. In her accusations, Nelson did not mention that I was the judge assigned to her divorce case in 1999, a matter that apparently caused her no distress at a time that was 18 years closer to the alleged assault.”
“Yet 18 years later, while talking before the cameras about the supposed assault, she seemingly could not contain her emotions.”
“Moore adamantly denied the accusations against him, and said he’s suing the media and his accusers for defamation.”
“I did not date underage girls, and have taken steps to begin a civil action for defamation,” he wrote.
Moore’s supporters attacked the Democrats who are demanding for him to drop out of the race, saying they gave several passes to Bill Clinton when his sexual misconduct allegations emerged.
Moore believes that this attack against him only proves how low politics has sunk. “Are we at a stage in American politics in which false allegations can overcome a public record of 40 years?” he asked.
Moore added: “When allegations of events occurring 40 years ago — and never before mentioned during a 40-year career of public service — are brought out and taken seriously only 30 days before a critical election, we may be in trouble as a country.”
