John Rogers, the communications director for Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, resigned from his position on the campaign Wednesday.
Campaign chairman Bill Armistead confirmed the news.
“As we all know, campaigns make changes throughout the duration of the campaign, as do those working in the campaign,” Armistead said in a statement. “John made the decision to leave the campaign last Friday – any representations to the contrary are false – and we wish him well.”
Armistead also said that effective immediately, Hannah Ford, who serves as Deputy Campaign Manager, would be the media contact for the final three weeks of the campaign.
Rogers’ decision to leave, just weeks before the Dec. 12 special election, comes as Moore continues to draw criticism in the wake of The Washington Post’s explosive report on Thursday Nov. 9 with the accounts of four women who claim Moore sexually pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were in their teens.
Moore vehemently denies the accusations.
