Sen. Daines withdraws endorsement of Alabama's Roy Moore

Roy Moore is now losing to Doug Jones in the first major poll following the publication of harassment allegations. "We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall ... but you really wouldn't say anything to someone like that".

The Washington Post reported this week that four women said Moore had pursued sexual or romantic relationships with them in the 1970s and '80s - when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

Northern Ireland player's wife launches astonishing rant at referee after penalty decision
The Northern Ireland midfielder apologises after his wife reacts to a controversial penalty during the team's World Cup qualifier. The ball clearly strikes Corry on the back and the referee has a clear view of the incident.


The cold open got the show off to a great start, with a sketch that featured Kate McKinnon's Jeff Sessions and Beck Bennett's Mike Pence confronting Mike Day's Roy Moore about allegations that he sexually abused multiple teenage girls. Moore has vehemently denied the allegations.

In all, 29 percent of respondents in the poll said the allegations against Moore would make them more likely to vote for him, compared to 38 percent overall who say the allegations would make them less likely to support Moore.

Taylor Swift solid on new album 'Reputation' Special
The results are delightful, in large part because you can tell how proud she is of herself. The highlight tracks on the album are "Getaway Car" and "Gorgeous".


Republicans on Capital Hill have been quick to distance themselves from the arch social conservative, with Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) saying if the allegations are true, Moore should withdraw from the race.

Moore went on to accuse the paper, whose editorial board endorsed his Democratic opponent Doug Jones, of 'yet another attack on my character and reputation in a desperate attempt to stop my political campaign for United States Senate'.

Goodell's absurd contract demands leak, and this is getting ugly
Yet there are issues that others owners aside from Jones are aware of, and they are wrestling now with how to best handle it. It really should not be that big of a surprise to these owners that Goodell is asking for an exorbitant out of money.


On ABC's This Week, Martha Raddatz asked White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway if she had any doubt about the claims against Moore, Conway responded, "The president and others in the Republican Party have made clear that if the allegations are true, this man should step aside, but I've gone farther than that", adding that "everybody should know that conduct is disqualifying".
