Sacha Baron Cohen confronted former Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy MooreRoy Stewart MooreThe Hill's Morning Report - Biden assails 'epidemic' of gun violence amid SC, Texas shootings Trump faces test of power with early endorsements CPAC, all-in for Trump, is not what it used to be MORE with a "pedophile detecting machine" in the latest episode of the comedian's "Who Is America?" undercover project.

Cohen, posing as Israeli antiterrorism expert Erran Morad, challenges Moore over the numerous accusations of sexual misconduct against him, some involving minors, that surfaced ahead of last year's special election. 

In the clip, Cohen and Moore briefly discuss the former judge's support for Israel, before the “antiterrorism expert” shows off a new piece of Israeli technology.

“Sex offenders and particularly pedophiles secrete an enzyme for DDHT, which is actually detectable,” Cohen says. “It is three times the level as non-perverts, so the phrase 'sweating like a rapist' is actually based on science.”


“So in Israel they've developed a machine that is used in schools and playgrounds to detect anyone coming in and if they detect the pedophile, the wand alerts the law enforcement,” he adds, before waving the wand over Moore, where it emits a beeping noise.

“It’s malfunctioning,” Cohen says, trying it several more times on himself and another person, where the device stays silent. “Did you lend the jacket to somebody else?”

"I've been married for 33 years, I've never had an accusation of such things,” Moore says. "If this is an instrument, then certainly I'm not a pedophile. I am simply cutting this conversation right now."

Moore then walks out of the interview.

Moore, who lost the December election to now-Sen. Doug Jones (D), faced accusations from several women who said he initiated sexual encounters with them when he was in his 20s and 30s. One of the women said the incident occurred when she was 14 years old.

Cohen has duped a number of Republican figures on the first three episodes of the Showtime series, including Georgia state Rep. Jason Spencer (R), who resigned after yelling racial slurs and exposing himself on the series.
