Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore faced protesters as he arrived at a Veterans Day event Saturday in Alabama amid a controversy involving allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls.
"No Moore," protesters chanted as Moore arrived at Vestavia Hills, which is south of Birmingham.

He refused to answer reporters' questions, according to footage from MSNBC.
The bombshell Washington Post report published Thursday contains accounts from four women alleging Moore sought sexual relations with them when they were teenagers. According to one of the allegations, Moore sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl more than 30 years ago.
Moore forcefully denied this story while speaking to Sean Hannity on his radio show Friday. "These are allegations are completely false and misleading," Moore said. His response to the allegations from the other three girls was less clear.
He said that the charges are "completely untrue" and, "I have the highest regard for the protection of young children."
