  • A letter of support. Moore's wife, Kayla Moore, posted a letter of support on Facebook Sunday signed by more than 50 pastors, AL.com reports. But the letter, which calls Moore an "immovable rock in the culture wars," appears to date from before the GOP primary. At least two of the pastors have asked for their names to be removed.
  • Hemorrhaging support. Moore continued losing Republican support after the newest accusations, with Texan Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz among those withdrawing their endorsements, the Hill reports. Cruz said the accusations "if true, not only make him unfit to serve in the Senate but merit criminal prosecution."
  • Moore's warning. The New York Daily News has more on Young Nelson's accusations. She told reporters that after offering a ride home, Moore drove behind the restaurant, groped her, and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him. She says after Moore finally gave up, he told her: "You are a child. I am the district attorney of Etowah County. If you tell anyone about this, no one will believe you." She says after Moore unlocked the car door, she either "fell out or he pushed me out."
