A top strategist for embattled U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore said Sunday that he doubts there will be a Senate investigation if Mr. Moore wins the special election in Alabama on Tuesday.
“Judge Moore’s going to go to Washington. Judge Moore’s going to win. And I highly doubt there’s going to be a Senate investigation,” Dean Young, the strategist, said on ABC’s “This Week.” “But if there is, Judge Moore’s going to be found telling the truth just as he always has, and he will win.”
Several women have accused Mr. Moore of pursuing sexual relationships with them years ago when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.
Mr. Young said the people of Alabama shouldn’t fall for “all these false allegations that just appeared three or four weeks ago.”
Some Republican senators have said it could be difficult to expel Mr. Moore from the Senate if he wins the special election in Alabama, but there could be an ethics investigation into the allegations at the very least.
Mr. Moore is facing off against Democrat Doug Jones in the contest, with polls showing a competitive race heading into Tuesday.
