Alabama Pastor Earl Wise told the Boston Globe that he would back Moore even if sexual assault allegations were true.

Pastor Flip Benham, who appeared alongside other anti-abortion advocates at a press conference with Moore last week, suggested Monday on an Alabama radio show that there was nothing wrong with dating younger women, saying that Moore never did so without their parents' permission.
