Gov. Scott Walker, addressing allegations that U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl, compared them to a claim that surfaced late in Wisconsin's 2012 recall campaign that Walker had fathered a "love child".

"I think it would be best if Roy would just step aside", said Sen. Susan Collins, who in a statement on Twitter Monday said she "did not find Moore's denials to be convincing". She described a harrowing chain of events that ended with Moore attempting to force her into a sex act in a parked vehicle - an episode that, she said, left her with severe bruising on her neck.

Walker's office did not immediately respond Monday to an inquiry asking if his views on Moore had changed or whether he wanted to address the statements from Shilling and Taylor. The JMC Analytics survey found that 29 percent of its respondents were "more likely" to vote for Moore in response to the Post's reporting.

The Kentucky Republican said last week after the initial report from the Washington Post broke that if the allegations were true, then Moore should step aside.

NY police investigating 'credible' rape claim against Harvey Weinstein
Weinstein's representative, Sallie Hofmeister, says the 65-year-old Oscar victor denies any allegations of non-consensual sex. Weinstein's representative did not respond to CNN's request for comment regarding de La Huerta's allegations on Friday.

The crossfire escalated a GOP civil war over Moore's Senate candidacy in a December 12 special election, which until last week's allegations was viewed as an inevitable Republican win in the deep-red state.

McConnell told reporters in his home state of Kentucky that party officials were considering whether a Republican write-in candidate could be found to challenge Moore in the December 12 special election.

Moore's contest against Democrat Doug Moore, a former federal prosecutor, is to fill out the last three years of the seat once held by Jeff Sessions, now attorney general in President Donald Trump's Cabinet.

Four surveys of voters taken in Alabama, a southern state, in the immediate aftermath of the newspaper story and Moore's adamant rejection of it show him to be in a close race with Jones, separated by a few percentage points, with a significant share of undecided voters. But more than being completely false and untrue, they're very hurtful to me personally. Moore has denied the allegations in the report.

Woman gets 10 years' probation for marrying biological mother
A district judge ordered that two of those years must be served under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. She also once married her son Cody, who claims both he and his sister were manipulated by Patricia Ann.

Moore is an outspoken Christian conservative and former state Supreme Court judge. Asked if unusual might be a candidate again, he said "We'll see". "It was a Scott Walker, a Scott P. Walker, I'm Scott Kevin Walker", Walker said. Losing the special election to a Democrat would imperil Republicans' already slim 52-48 majority in the Senate, which is hoping to pass a tax overhaul later this year.

But Moore has remained defiant.

Walker was asked in the Sunday interview if Moore should bow out of the race in the light of the allegations.
