Raphael Williams, a spokesman for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, provided Axios with this statement in response to questions about Ben Carson's past support for Roy Moore: "The Secretary believes any man that assaults any woman is unfit for public office."

Carson was the only member of President Trump's cabinet to voice support for Moore during the Alabama Republican primary. Trump endorsed Luther Strange, Moore's opponent.
