According to The Hill, Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones just issued a new campaign ad that quotes so-called "prominent conservatives" who don't like his opponent, Roy Moore. In particular, they fully believe and are profoundly uncomfortable with the sexual abuse allegations that have recently been thrown against him.

The ad therefore includes quotes from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Senator Richard Shelby, both of whom are popular among grassroots conservatives and Alabama voters. What is more surprising is the use of Ivanka Trump's statement about Roy Moore.

According to the ad, "Ivanka Trump says 'there's a special place in hell for people who prey on children,' and 'I have no reason to doubt the victims' accounts. Jeff Sessions says 'I have no reason to doubt these young women.' And Richard Shelby says he will 'absolutely not vote for Roy Moore.'"

"Conservative voices putting children and women over party – doing what's right," it continues.

Jones, who is currently running in Alabama's special Senate election against Republican Roy Moore, has been capitalizing on the sexual abuse allegations against Moore. It has been alleged that Moore pursued romantic relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s. 

Despite these career-crippling accusations, Moore has vehemently denied the allegations against him. He has also vowed to remain in the race. "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,” his campaign said, according to Politico

“These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore wrote to Breitbart, immediately before the article by the Washington Post came to light.

“This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation,” the statement read. “After over 40 years of public service, if any of these allegations were true, they surely would have been made public long before now.”
