Drudge has previously labeled Moore “Judge Whore” on his influential news-aggregation website after reports of sexual misconduct allegations against Moore were reported.

Moore was accused of sexual misconduct last month by multiple women, including one woman who said Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 years old and he was 32.

Moore denied the allegations, but he faced calls to drop out of the race from top Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellOn The Money: Power players play chess match on COVID-19 aid | Pelosi bullish, Trump tempers optimism | Analysis: Nearly 1M have run out of jobless benefits Trump casts doubt on hopes for quick stimulus deal after aides expressed optimism Power players play chess match on COVID-19 aid MORE (R-Ky.), who supported Strange in the GOP primary.
