The chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., on Monday called on his fellow senators to expel Alabama Republican Roy Moore, if Moore wins a special election next month.
"I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office," Gardner said in a statement. "If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate."
Gardner's statement was issued moments after a woman alleged Monday that Moore tried to rape her when she was 16 and he was in his 30s. Beverly Young Nelson said Moore groped her and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him, after offering her a ride home from the restaurant where she worked.
