“At the end of the day, when Roy Moore — if he should win — goes to Washington, we will always be questioning his character,” Sewell told ABC’s “This Week.”

Sewell’s comments come two days ahead of the Alabama special election, when Moore will face off against Democrat Doug Jones for the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff SessionsJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard SessionsTrump: Appointing Sessions was my biggest mistake Nikki Haley blasts Roy Moore's Senate bid: 'He does not represent our Republican Party' Time magazine: Trump threatened reporter with prison time MORE and currently held by Sen.

Multiple women in the last month have accused Moore of sexual misconduct, including allegations that he made sexual advances toward women when they were teenagers. Moore has denied the accusation that he initiated sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl in 1979, when he was 32, but admitted in an interview last month that he may have dated women in their later teens during that time in his life.

Sewell said on Sunday that “there’s no reason to doubt these women,” referencing the women who have come forward with allegations against Moore.
