Larry Moore, the brother of Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, says Roy “is being “persecuted” just “like Jesus was” by sexual abuse allegations from four women who claim Roy sexually pursued them as teens.
One of the women, who was 14 years old when the alleged abuse happened, told The Washington Post that Roy touched her on top of her bra and panties. Roy allegedly tried to force the girl to touch his penis. Roy denies all the allegations.
Larry defended his brother to CNN reporter Martin Savidge during a telephone interview.
Larry claimed, without proof, that money and the Democratic Party were behind the The Washington Post story, which cited 30 sources.
Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler recently defended Roy by comparing him and the teen girls to Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus in the Bible.
