After a fifth woman accused Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct Monday, Sen. Todd Young, R-Indiana, joined a cohort of his party colleagues in calling for the former judge to withdraw.
Moore is accused of inappropriate advances on teenagers dating back decades ago. His alleged misdeeds were first unveiled in a Nov. 9 Washington Post article which cited more than 30 sources.
Young announced his position on the matter in a set of Twitter posts.
Young is not alone in his announcement on Monday — earlier in the day, Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, the Senate Majority Leader, said at a news conference related to tax reform that he believed Moore's accusers and he should resign.
Other Republican colleagues began denouncing Moore when the Washington Post's story first published.
