A new accuser is coming forward with allegations the she was sexually assaulted by U.S. Senatorial candidate Roy Moore.

That woman is going to speak out about her allegations to famed Defense Attorney Gloria Allred on Monday.

This brings the number of accusers up to five.

Meanwhile, Roy Moore is speaking out about suing The Washington Post.

This comes after Roy Moore attended a campaign event in Huntsville, AL Sunday night.

The Washington Post initially reported accusations that Moore had sexual misconduct with a 14-year old girl almost four decades ago, and that he "pursued" three other girls, ages 16, 17, and 18 when he was in his 30s.

Moore said at the Huntsville campaign event that he plans on going after the Post in court.

"The Washington Post published another attack on my character and reputation because they are desperate to stop my political campaign. These attacks said I was with a minor child and are false and untrue-and for which they will be sued," said Moore.

Because of these allegations, Roy Moore is receiving criticism from other white house officials, some even calling for him to “step aside”.

White House Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short spoke to NBC news about the white house's stance on the Moore allegations.

“I think Roy Moore has to do more explaining than he has done so far. I think we here in Washington have to be careful as well in this. The people in Alabama know Roy Moore better than we do here in DC, and I think we have to be very cautious,” said Short.

Representative Charles Dent of Pennsylvania is also calling for Moore to step aside. “I just think the man is unfit and that was before these recent allegations of very serious misconduct. So, I think right now it's important that this man step aside. I doubt that he will but he should step aside,” said Dent.

Mitch Mcconnell also spoke out about the allegations against Moore saying "I believe the women" then suggesting that Moore should step down.

And this afternoon, we're hearing from Roy Moore's wife, Kayla.

According to AL.com, Mrs. Moore says the supposedly "common knowledge" of her husband's interest in teenage girls when he was in his thirties -wasn't known to her.

The two were married in 1985, when he was 38 years old.

The Washington Post reports the alleged sexual contact was with with a 14-year-old happened he was 32.

Kayla Moore also calls the allegations "outrageous".

press conference begins -35:35:

On Monday afternoon, Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead responded to reports that sensationalist lawyer Gloria Allred is hosting a press conference in New York City:

"Gloria Allred is a sensationalist leading a witch hunt, and she is only around to create a spectacle. Allred was the attorney who claims credit for giving us Roe v. Wade which has resulted in the murder of tens of millions of unborn babies.

"We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: Judge Moore is an innocent man and has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone. This is a witch hunt against a man who has had an impeccable career for over 30 years and has always been known as a man of high character.

"Let it be understood: the truth will come forward, we will pursue all legal options against these false claims and Judge Moore will be vindicated.”
