The story of the afternoon is the Washington Post reporting that Roy Moore, the Alabama ex-judge running for Senate as a Republican, initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was a 32-year-old district attorney. Three other women say Moore pursued contact with them when they were teens and he was in his 30s.
- In advance of the story's release, Moore's office sent their denials to Breitbart to apparently scoop the Post or control the response to the story. Several GOP senators are saying that if the allegations are true, Moore should step aside.
- This is not the only new big scandal hitting. The premiere for the latest Louis C.K. movie has been cancelled in advance of a New York Times story that was published this afternoon detailing accusations by women of his sexual misconduct.
