(Nov. 18, 2017) — In a One American News Network (OANN) exclusive interview featured in an article at Breitbart News on Saturday, Kayla Moore, wife of Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, referred to a lawsuit over allegations published in The Washington Post beginning on November 9 accusing her husband of sexual misconduct and assault during the late 1970s by a number of women.

OANN reporter Trey Yingst interviewed Kayla Moore prior to a Friday press conference at which she and other women spoke in support of Roy Moore’s candidacy.

At 1:18 in the video, Mrs. Moore told Yingst what sounded to this writer as, “A lawsuit’s being filed.”

The caption in the video states, “…a suit has been filed.”

Mrs. Moore declined to discuss the “allegations” made against her husband except to say that they are “false.”  She also emphatically stated that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “needs to step down” “because he’s not doing his job.”

At 3:26 in the interview, to this writer, Moore’s words appear to be “A suit’s been filed.”

As of 11:00 p.m. EST, there is no public report of a lawsuit having been filed, although both Moore and his wife have repeatedly stated that it would occur at some point.

Many assumed the allegations to be true despite what the Moores have said.

On Friday Mrs. Moore stated that her husband would not be deterred from continuing to seek the Senate seat vacated by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Separately on Friday, an email solicitation from Moore claimed that McConnell “is working behind the scenes” with California high-profile attorney Gloria Allred to sabotage his candidacy. Allred represents the fifth accuser, Beverly Young Nelson, who claimed that Moore accosted her after offering her a ride home one night in late 1977 or very early 1978.

As Breitbart reported on Friday, Ned Ryun of the right-leaning “American Majority” organization believes that “somebody out of the McConnell camp planted the story” containing the allegations against Moore, which include sexual advances with a 14-year-old and groping against a 16-year-old in the late 1970s.

Moore has denied all of the allegations.  In response to Young Nelson’s claim on Monday that he signed her 1977 high school yearbook, Moore’s attorney, Phillip Jauregi, directed himself to Allred during a Wednesday press conference, asking her to release the original yearbook to a “neutral custodian” so that the Moore campaign could dispatch a handwriting expert to analyze the ink and other features of the inscription.

In response, Allred told MSNBC and CNN Wednesday evening that she would release the yearbook only after the Senate holds “hearings” which she has demanded “within two weeks” despite the fact that Moore is not a member of that body.

The special election takes place on December 12.  While U.S. Senate seats which become vacant are normally filled temporarily by an appointment by the state governor, Alabama has a statute which calls for the people to vote for their next senator in a special election as soon as practicable.

The current junior Alabama senator, Luther Strange, was appointed by then-Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, who resigned earlier this year amidst reports of an infidelity scandal.

Bentley’s successor, Kay Ivey, said on Friday that she intends to vote for Moore.

According to The New York Post on Saturday, Moore’s campaign collected more than a half-million dollars in new donations “in three days last week.”

  1. Moore won’t waste his time and money filing a suit that he knows he cannot win. It’s just false bravado for people who don’t know any better.
