Doug Jones, the Democratic Senate candidate running in Alabama against Roy Moore, premiered a new ad on Wednesday which lists and shows pictures of the multiple women who have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against the embattled Republican candidate.
Featured in the video, among others, is Leigh Corfman, who alleged in a bombshell report by The Washington Post that Moore sexually touched her when she was 14 and he was 32. Beverly Young Nelson, who claims Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16, is also pictured in the video.
The voiceover in the ad reads the names of the accusers against Moore. “And the list is growing. They were girls when Roy Moore immorally pursued them,” the video says. “Now they are women, witnesses to us all of his disturbing conduct.”
“Will we make their abuser a U.S. senator?”

Moore has faced intense pressure from both Republican and Democratic leaders in Washington to drop out of the race following mounting allegations ranging from sexual misconduct with teenage girls to sexual assault.
However, Moore has denied most of the allegations and has vehemently vowed to remain in the race.
President Donald Trump offered a major boost to the turbulent Moore campaign after he all but endorsed the Republican candidate on Tuesday. When asked if he still backed Moore, Trump said, “We don't need a liberal Democrat in that seat.”
Reporters pressured the president regarding his apparent endorsement of Moore amid mounting allegations, however, Trump appeared to side with the Republican Senate candidate.
“If you look at what is really going on if you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours — he totally denies it,” the president said.
“He says it didn't happen, you have to listen to him, also.”
