Two more women have come forward in the Washington Post, accusing U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of unwanted advances, with other on-the-record sources corroborating their accounts and describing behavior by Moore at the Gadsden Mall that they say made them uncomfortable.

  • Gena Richardson was around 18 years old, working at the mall, and Moore was in his early 30s when she says he approached her. She declined to give him her phone number. A few days later, she "was summoned to the principal's office" at school for a phone call. It was Moore asking her out again. They agreed to meet at the mall's movie theater, after which she claims he "[drove] her to her car in a dark parking lot...and [gave] her what she called an unwanted, 'forceful' kiss."
  • Becky Gray was 22, working at the men's department of Pizitz in the mall. She told the Post that Moore "kept asking her out and she kept saying no," but he continued being "persistent in a way that made her uncomfortable."

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) told reporters on Wednesday that he believes President Trump "misspoke" when he told the far-right "Proud Boys" group to "stand back and stand by" in response to a question about condemning white supremacy at the first presidential debate.

Catch up quick: Moderator Chris Wallace asked Trump on Tuesday, "Are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and to say that they need to stand down?" Trump asked who specifically he should condemn, and then responded, "Proud Boys, stand back and stand by. But I'll tell you what, somebody's got to do something about antifa and the left."

The Commission on Presidential Debates announced Wednesday that it plans to implement changes to rules for the remaining debates, after Tuesday night's head-to-head between Joe Biden and Donald Trump was practically incoherent for most of the night.

What they are saying: "Last night's debate made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues," the CPD said in a statement.

Trump says he doesn't know who Proud Boys are after telling them to "stand by"

President Trump told reporters on Wednesday that he doesn't know who the Proud Boys are, after saying at the presidential debate last night that the far-right group should "stand back and stand by" in response to a question asking him to condemn white supremacists.

Why it matters: The comments set off outrage and calls for clarification from a number of Republican senators. After being asked several times on Wednesday whether he will condemn white supremacy, Trump responded, "I have always denounced any form — any form of any of that, you have to denounce. But I also — Joe Biden has to say something about antifa."
