“I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office,” he wrote in a statement. “If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate.”

Gardner’s remarks following the majority of Republicans in the upper chamber calling for Moore to remove himself from the race if the allegations are true.

Moore adamantly denies the allegation made the the Washington Post report.
