A former colleague of Roy Moore's told CNN on Saturday that it was "common knowledge" that he "dated high school girls" when he was in his 30s.
Moore is currently running as a Republican for an open Senate seat in Alabama.
Moore has denied the allegation made by the woman who said he behaved inappropriately towards her when she was 14, and said that he had never met her.
He did recall knowing two of his other accusers, but he denied that he had ever engaged in any sexual misconduct with them. But I don’t remember that."He also said he remembered another accuser, Gloria Thacker Deason, who said she was 18 when she started going out with Moore, who was 32 then.

But just know that soon she will be in college and want to explore so the relationship might not last. I love this guy who's 5 years older than me and he loves me back. If you still have questions just ask I am a mom and a very protective one,my 3 sons are very protective of their sister,so with that in mind if an older man wants to date my very young daughter..better not touch her.
But Moore appears unlikely to take that step, particularly because he has significant backing from prominent Alabama Republicans and the far-right Trumpist wing of the GOP, many of whom have either said the allegations are not a big deal, or that they are entirely false.
Moore has painted the allegations against him as part of an effort by liberals to smear his candidacy.
Several other women told The Post that Moore pursued romantic relationships with them while he was in his 30s and they were between the ages of 16 and 19. Theresa Jones used to work as a deputy district attorney in the same courthouse as Moore, and she told CNN on Saturday that "everyone we knew thought it was weird" that Moore dated girls significantly younger than he was.
"We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall, but you really wouldn't say anything to someone like that," she added.
