  • The sexual assault scandal surrounding Alabama
    senate-nominee Roy Moore has become toxic for the Republican
    Party.
  • One Republican lawmaker from Alabama ran away from a
    reporter’s questions on the incident.

For nearly a week, Alabama senate-nominee Roy Moore’s
sexual assault scandal
has gripped the Republican Party,
dividing top lawmakers amid the fierce public backlash.

The controversial subject has evoked varying responses,
including causing one lawmaker to flee from a reporter’s dogged
line of questions.

In the video released on Tuesday evening, ABC News
correspondent Tom Llamas is seen briskly
walking down a flight of stairs, closely behind
Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama. Amid the hurried footsteps,
Llamas can be heard firing a few questions as Brooks appears
to avoid him.

“Do you believe Roy Moore over the women?” Llamas asked.

“I believe that the Democrats will do great damage to our
country,” Brooks said.

“So you still believe Roy Moore?” Llamas continued.

“I believe that the Democrats will do great damage to our country
on a myriad of issues,” Brooks repeated.

Several Republican lawmakers have floated the theory
that Moore’s accusers conspired with Democrats to tilt the
upcoming election in Alabama, which has historically elected
Republican officials, in their favor.

The sexual assault
scandal
, as first reported by the Washington Post, shed light
on the accounts of several women who alleged that Moore initiated
sexual encounters with them when they were underage. Following
The Post’s report, other accusers have come forward with
evidence of their ties with Moore.

The scandal has also caused several Republicans, including Senate
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, to distance themselves from
Moore. Speaking to reporters, McConnell said that he believed the
accusations
and said that Moore “should step aside” from the
Senate race.
