Moore uses sex claims to raise money
WASHINGTON - Alabama Republican Roy Moore is trying to raise money for his U.S. Senate race on allegations he had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his early 30s.
Moore wrote in his fundraising pitch that "the vicious and sleazy attacks against me are growing more vicious by the minute." He told supporters that he's counting on them to stand with him by "chipping in a donation,"

The Washington Post reported last week that the 70-year-old Moore had relationships with teenage girls, including a 14-year-old, while he was in his early 30s. Moore has vehemently denied the allegations in the Post story.
