Teresa Jones, who worked with Moore as a deputy district attorney for Etowah County, Ala., from 1982 until 1985, said that it was "common knowledge" the controversial politician allegedly preferred younger women.

Roy Moore is now losing to Doug Jones in the first major poll following the publication of harassment allegations.

The Washington Post reported this week that four women said Moore had pursued sexual or romantic relationships with them in the 1970s and '80s - when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

The age of consent in Alabama is 16 years of age.

Moore has pledged to stay in the race, and denies the accusations.

George Takei denies allegation that he groped male model in 1980s
In October, the host asked Takei if he ever grabbed someone's genitals against their will. Brunton said he left Takei's apartment and never reported the alleged incident.

'In the next few days there will be revelations about the motivation and the content of this article, ' Moore said during a Birmingham campaign rally on Saturday.

Perhaps Democratic candidate Doug Jones has found his new slogan?

Indeed, 29% of survey respondents said they were actually more likely to support Moore following the accusations, while 38% of respondents said they were less likely to support him following the report, and 33% said it made no difference.

The skit opens up with Mike Pence pleading with Moore to step down from his running.

Josh Mandel, the 40-year-old state treasurer considered the front runner, declined to state a position on whether Moore should quit the Alabama Senate race if allegations of sexual misconduct with minors prove true. Weekend Update also covered the allegations against Moore, with host Colin Jost joking that Moore "looks a guy who shows up at Westworld and says, 'Hey, can someone show me where the middle school is?'"
