Anti-LGBT Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has been accused of initiating a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old.

The disgraced former judge is the frontrunner in the race for the US Senate seat vacated by Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

He has been enthusiastically backed in the race by Donald Trump, despite being the most homophobic candidate for the US Senate in recent history.

Moore, who believes that homosexuality should be illegal, has previously been accused of drawing a salary from the anti-LGBT Foundation for Moral Law, a non-profit he founded in 2002.

And a month ahead of the special election, it has been revealed that he allegedly sexually abused 14-year-old Leigh Corfman in 1979, when Moore, an assistant district attorney, was 32.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said: “If these allegations are true, he must step aside.”

Republican Arizona Senator John McCain went further, saying: “The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying.

“He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of.”

After meeting the girl outside an Alabama courtroom, Moore allegedly talked to her and asked for her phone number.

Days later, he picked Corfman up and drove her 30 minutes to his house in the woods, she has told The Washington Post.

It was there that he told her how pretty she was and kissed her, she said.

On her second time in his home, she said, he removed her shirt and trousers and stripped off his clothes, touching her over her bra and underpants.
