Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore says he plans to file a lawsuit against The Washington Post, after the newspaper reported last week on allegations that Moore initiated a sexual encounter decades ago with a 14-year-old girl.

Moore denies the claims, and says he questions their timing just a month before the special Senate election. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson checks with Brian Lyman (@lyman_brian), state government reporter for The Montgomery Advertiser.
