“Donald Trump’s behavior makes him unacceptable as a candidate for president, and I won’t vote for him,” Roby said.
 
She said she was disappointed with Trump’s “antics” throughout the campaign and wanted to support the GOP’s nominee for the good of the party and country.
 
“Now, it is abundantly clear that the best thing for our country and our party is for Trump to step aside and allow a responsible, respectable Republican to lead the ticket,” she said.
 
 
 
Roby, 40, in 2011 became one of the the first two women elected to Congress from Alabama in regular elections.
 
 
“I’m out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine," Chaffetz said.

The Washington Post on Friday published audio of Trump talking about how women let him "do anything" because he's famous. 
 
"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything.
 
"Grab them by the p----,” Trump adds. "You can do anything."
