Mitt Romney: Moore is unfit for office and should step aside

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is one of the few Republican politicians – besides Senator John McCain – who is publicly speaking out against Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore. Moore has been accused by four women of sexual misconduct that he initiated towards them when they were teenagers, including Leigh Corfman, who was 14 at the time.

In a tweet this morning, Mitt Romeney says, "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside."

According to Time:

The politician's condemnation of Moore is a marked change from many of his Republican colleagues, who, though they have denounced Moore's alleged actions, have couched calls for him to step down in language that casts doubt about the veracity of allegations.
