Roy Moore (flag background)Alabama voters will ultimately decide guilt or innocence of U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, says the leader of a Mississippi-based ministry. 

Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, says AFA leadership is studying the accusations being made against Moore after the former court justice was accused of sexual assault three decades ago in a Washington Post story that published two weeks ago.

More accusations have been made since, ranging from aggressive behavior to late-teen girls to a second accusation of sexual assault by Beverly Nelson, who says Moore sexually assaulted her in his car in 1977.

Moore has vocally denied the accusations and says his candidacy is being opposed by not just the Democratic Party but also "establishment" Republicans on Capitol Hill who already opposed him.

Meanwhile, AFA Action, the 501(c)(4) political arm of AFA, endorsed Moore during his GOP primary and to date that endorsement has not been withdraw.

Nelson is being represented by feminist lawyer Gloria Allred, who presented a yearbook purportedly with Moore's signature to her client. Yet the Moore campaign shot back that it appears Nelson lifted the signature from her 1999 divorce papers signed by Moore, including the letters "D.A." that are the initials of a court employee.

"So that doesn't look good for them," Wildmon says of Nelson and her attorney.

The future of Roy Moore in politics amid these allegations, says Wildmon, should ultimately be decided by Alabama voters. (Watch a video discussion of this topic)

"Let's leave that up to the judge and the voters of Alabama. They can read. They can see what's going on here," Wildmon says. "And if enough of them believe he is guilty, then they'll have to determine which way to go. But to call on him to step aside on allegations, I don't know if that's a precedent the Republicans really want to take because that's kind of dangerous."

Wildmon also predicts that Moore will ultimately win in the Dec. 12 election over Democratic candidate Doug Jones.
