HUNTSVILLE, AL — When Marjorie Reese, a 91-year-old retired secretary, was young, she didn’t think much of being sexually assaulted by men much older than her. “Teachers touched us inappropriately but we just didn’t say anything,” she said. “That was part of life, I guess.”For many older women — in Alabama and elsewhere — the allegations that Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore sexually assaulted girls as young as 14 when he was in his 30s are familiar.
Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore defied mounting calls to resign Wednesday as a fifth woman came forward with accusations of sexual harassment against him. The allegations — including charges he pursued a relationship with and undressed a 14-year-old and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old — have upended what should’ve been an easily winnable race for the Republican.
Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie is the kind of Republican that’s won in Virginia for years: boring but safe. Then, Donald Trump took office. Compared to the president’s fantastical far-right policy promises and showy style, Gillespie’s moderate message could cost him the governor’s mansion. Republicans across the country up for reelection in 2018 are facing the same challenge: how to excite a base still loyal to Trump without turning off moderates or energizing Democrats.
Kayla Moore: “To the people of Alabama, thank you for being smarter than they think you are. They will call you names, they will say all manner of evil against you, and I️ will say consider the source.” #ALSen
Kayla Moore: “All of the very same people who were attacking President Trump are also attacking us - I️ personally think he owes us a thank you, have you noticed we’re not hearing about Russia?” https://t.co/kIgADaG0LU

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
