Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday called on GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to prove he did not sexually pursue underage girls by providing a “satisfactory explanation” for the mounting allegations against him. Hannity, whose show has faced an advertising boycott after he initially appeared to come to Moore’s defense, has now joined top Republicans in demanding Moore drop out of the Senate race. “Between this interview that I did and the inconsistent answers; between him saying ‘I never knew this girl’ and then that yearbook comes out—for me, the judge has 24 hours,” Hannity said. “You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies that I just showed. You must remove any doubt. If he can’t do this, Judge Moore needs to get out of this race.” Five women have come forward to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct, with one of the accusers saying she was 14 when Moore allegedly molested her. Moore has denied the allegations.
