UPDATE (9:30) — A large and supportive crowd came out to listen to Roy Moore speak at Magnolia Springs Baptist Church in Theodore Wednesday night in a campaign rally. But the night did not end without controversy and opposition.
Moore issued a flat out denial of sexual abuse to half a dozen women.
“Let me state once again I do not know any of these women. I did not date any of these women. I did not engage in any sexual misconduct with anyone. This is not only odd when things like this occur it is simply dirty politics.”
However, this was not convincing enough for at least one person in the audience. A man was kicked out of the event for trying to shout Moore down.
News 5’s Allen Carter asked the man why. “I just think someone needs to stand up for the girls that’s all. No one wants to stand up for the women in the churches and that’s what the churches used to be.”
Another man was escorted out, but this time for being overly supportive. “That’s a man’s man.”
Most everyone who came, strongly backs Moore and their minds aren’t changing.
But Moore says this election is about values, not accusations.
