Roy Moore campaign spokesperson Janet Porter said she was unsure of the Alabama GOP Senate candidate’s current stance on homosexuality.
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper pressed Porter during an interview Wednesday and asked her if Moore, who is facing multiple allegation of sexual misconduct, still stands by his prior assertions that "homosexual conduct" should be illegal that it is akin to bestiality.
“Well what I think what Judge Moore — and I can’t answer that question --" Porter said before Cooper cut her off and told her Moore had said that in the past.
“I don’t have that answer,” Porter said.

Porter then discussed Moore’s Democratic challenger, Doug Jones’ position on transgender rights.
“If you are a junior high school girl or a high school girl, what 'abortion Jones' is saying we're putting out a welcome mat to any boy who's feeling like a girl that day, he's free to walk into the bathroom, the locker room and shower with your daughter,” Porter said, using a nickname to mock Jones.
Cooper then asked again for Moore’s stance on homosexuality.
“I believe that he believes the Bible and what the Bible has to say is something his opponent wants to criminalize," was the reply.
Cooper then said if there wasn’t an answer for Porter to “get back to us” on the question. Porter said she would.
Moore faces multiples accusations of pursuing sexual and romantic relations with teenage girls while he was in his 30s. Moore denies any wrongdoing.
