It appears that Roy Moore is now using allegations that he had inappropriate sexual contact with a 14-year-old when he was 32 to fundraise.
As Toronto Star‘s Washington correspondent Daniel Dale noted on Twitter, Moore’s campaign sent a fundraising email Thursday afternoon with the subject line “we are in a spiritual battle” that alleges he is being attacked by the “Obama-Clinton machine’s liberal lapdogs.”

Others confirmed that they, too, received the fundraising email.
I just received a fundraising email from the Moore campaign. Subject line: "We are in a spiritual battle." Blames these allegations on the "forces of evil waging an all-out war on our conservative values." Unbelievable.
