FILE – In this Nov. 27 2017 file photo, former Alabama Chief Justice and U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore speaks at a campaign rally, in Henagar, Ala.

In the political world, it’s never that simple. Moore is pressing ahead with his U.S. Senate candidacy in Alabama despite allegations he sexually assaulted two teenage girls decades ago.
