The Republican National Committee Has Dropped Roy Moore

According to Politico, the Republican National Committee is withdrawing from a joint fundraising agreement it had with embattled Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore and canceling a planned field program leading up to the election. The RNC "will no longer transfer any money to the race."

Moore is accused of sexually assaulting teenage girls back when he was in his 30s. 

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Cory Gardner (R-CO) said the U.S. Senate should move to expel Moore if he is elected. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for Moore to drop out of the race.

Even conservative Fox News host Sean Hannity is calling for Moore to drop out, if he can't immediately provide an explanation for the evidence that contradicts his claims.

So far, Moore remains defiant against the mounting claims. His campaign chairman is on the record as saying, “We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: Judge Moore is an innocent man and has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone.”

If Moore pulls off an increasingly unlikely win in December, he could become the first U.S. senator to be expelled since 1862.
