Roy Moore‘s communications director has resigned as his boss continues to fend off the sexual misconduct allegations hovering over his Alabama senate run.
The Washingtonian has received confirmation that John Rogers is no longer part of Moore’s controversial campaign. Rogers declined to say anything further when contacted for comment, though Fox News reporter Alex Pappas got this statement from Team Moore:
Fox News' @dangallo confirms that John Rogers, communications director for Roy Moore, is out. Campaign takes shot: "Unfortunately John just did not have the experience to deal with the press the last couple of weeks, and we’ve had to make a change," aide Brett Doster says.

Moore has been bleeding party support as women have continued to speak out about his inappropriate behavior towards them when they were young. President Trump, however, largely backed Moore on Tuesday by citing his denials of the charges against him while blasting Democratic candidate Doug Jones.
