A handful of pastors say they did not grant permission for their names to be used on a letter signed by pastors urging Alabama voters to support GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore in next month’s special election to filled Alabama's vacant U.S. Senate seat.
Moore’s wife, Kayla Moore, first posted the letter, signed by 53 pastors and resembles one previously posted on Moore’s campaign website prior to the primary, on her Facebook page on Sunday amid allegations of sexual misconduct against her husband.
Pastor Thad Endicott said he had not been asked about the recent letter and has since asked his name be removed from it.
"The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore," said Endicott.
Moore is up against Democrat Doug Jones next month in the Alabama special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ empty Senate seat.
