With just one week to go before the special election, Democrat Doug Jones has taken off his gloves and has come out swinging.

During a campaign speech on Tuesday, Jones took his Republican opponent Roy Moore to task regarding the allegations of sexual misconduct with teens by Moore when he was in his 30s.

Referring to his own history as a former federal prosecutor, Jones said, “I damn sure believe that I have done my part to ensure that men who hurt little girls should go to jail and not the United States Senate.”

Moore has been under fire since The Washington Post published an explosive report on Thursday Nov. 9 with the accounts of four women who claim he sexually pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were in their teens. Since that time, five more woman have come forward with similar accusations against Moore.

Moore has vehemently denied the allegations made against him, claiming the women are lying.

Jones went on to Moore an embarrassment to the state and saying he would be a “disaster” for Alabama in Washington.

“Roy Moore has never, ever served our state with honor,” Jones added. “He has never, ever been a source of pride for the people of this state, only a source of embarrassment.”

Jones faces Moore in the special election on Dec. 12.
