The wife of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama said on Friday her husband would not end his campaign in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations, dismissing reports about his past behavior toward some women as political attacks. "He will not step down," Kayla Moore said at a news conference on the steps of the state capitol in Montgomery. "He will not stop fighting for the people of Alabama." The former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice's campaign has been in turmoil since the Washington Post published a story last week detailing the accounts of three women who claim Moore pursued them while they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

Donors who contributed sums of $50,000, $100,000 or $250,000 were offered perks such as tickets to a Broadway musical and a VIP reception event. The museum's vice president, Steven Bickley, has insisted the hotel was "the only place available for our date", adding "we were looking for a venue, not a statement". Critics have also seized on a changing mission statement of the museum from "[inspiring] confidence in the absolute authority and reliability of the Bible", to a new, more neutral goal of inviting people to learn more about the Bible.  Steve Green, the owner of Hobby Lobby and a founder and major backer of the Museum of the Bible Credit: Jacquelyn Martin  Steve Green, president of Hobby Lobby, said the institution he largely funded is meant to educate, not evangelise, though critics are dubious.  The museum will be the centerpiece of several of the Green family's religious efforts, including sponsoring research on the Bible and promoting a Bible curriculum they hope will be used in U.S. public schools.  An initial attempt in an Oklahoma school district was withdrawn following complaints the lessons were not neutral. The Green family association has cast something of a cloud over the museum after the US department of justice accused the family's company of smuggling ancient artefacts taken from Iraq. Hobby Lobby agreed to pay a $3 million fine and return more than 5,000 items in a government settlement.  The Museum of the Bible issued a statement following the settlement stating that none of the artifacts involved were part of the Museum’s collection.  "The Museum adheres to the current Association of Art Museum Directors standards on the Acquisition of Archaeological Material and Ancient Art, as well as guidelines set forth by the American Alliance of Museums," it said.
