Nine women, on the record, have accused Alabama Republican Roy Moore of sexual misconduct, most when they were teenagers and he was a grown man. Moore's spokesman says the women, who Mitch McConnell unambiguously believes, are criminals.

At a rally in September, one of the few African Americans in the audience asked Moore when America was last "great." He responded: "I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery — they cared for one another. ... Our families were strong, our country had a direction."
