6:33 pm
she told us a lot of people have asked her why nassar's accusers didn't speak up sooner? >> why are we looking at why didn't the girls speak up? why not look at what about the culture? what did u.s.a. gymnastics do and larry nassar do to manipulate these girls so much that they are so afraid to speak up? >> reporter: you're angry. >> i am angry. i'm really upset because it's been-- i care a lot. you know, when i see these young girls that come up to me and ask for pictures or autographs, i just want to create change so they never, ever have to go through this. >> mason: you can see jon's interview with aly raisman sunday night on "60 minutes." alabama senate candidate roy moore todayang rilly rejected calls to abandon his campaign. he denied allegations that he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl and pursued three other teenagers decades ago. chip reid reports tonight from
6:34 pm
>> reporter: roy moore gave his side of the story today on sean hannity's radio show. >> reporter: moore said he'd never met leigh corfman who told "the washington post" he fondled her when she was 14 years old. he said he does remember two other women in the "post" story gloria thacker deason and debbie wesson gibson, but he doesn't remember dating them and denies giving alcohol to the underage deason as she alleges. in gadsden, alabama, where moore allegedly met the teenaged girls nearly four decades ago, reactions to the "post" story are all over the map. madison canon summed up her feelings in a word. >> disgusting. it's disgusting that a grown man would take advantage of a girl. >> i think it's all made up. >> reporter: elmer cox has lived here all his life. he sai

republicans have rejected the evidence. in a statement she said: >> mason: chip reid in alabama. we're joined now by john dickerson, our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation." john, i noted today that former republican candidate mitt romney wrote on twitter: >> mason: what do you make of that, john? well, you know, romney has kind of started to play this voice as the moral voice of the republican party, speaking out in moral terms when there's that clash between morals and political success. but in this case, he's talking about a new standard in the wake of the harvey weinstein stories and other stories about sexual predators. the standards are changing. predators have used lack of absolu p
6:37 pm
punishment and have often lashed out at their accusers. now now, institutions from hollywood to corporate america and the senate are learning how to listen to women who are making these accusation. and what romney is essentially doing is applying that new standard. saying you don't need absolute proof. you is can have a certain amount of evidence, he's seen the evidence and he says it meets the test. >> mason: what exactly are the republicans' options now, john. >> reporter: they're exercising them differently. we have seen different senators who have withdrawn hir endorsements. john mccain saying he should drop out. the big challenge for washington republican leaders is they don't want to rush to judgment but they also don't want to be the party defined by the most outrageous allegations against one of their members, and they really want nothing to do with the alabama republicans who have said even if these allegations are true about moore's relationship with a 14-year-old girl, they'd still vote for him but there are also republicans like steve bannon, who agree with moore and wto
6:38 pm

6:39 pm
he went on to say he is "remorseful for his actions." this all comes as hollywood is dealing with an explosion of sex crimes accusations and a los angeles district attorney is now forming a task force to deal with any potential criminal cases. >> it's important that as allegations come in from around the county, if they do, they all have a first centralized stop. and that's the sex crimes division, or this task force. >> reporter: former l.a. sex crimes prosecutor steve miefters said those who potentially made it difficult for victims to come forward could also be prosecuted. >> to hire people or get people around you to try to hush things up, that's conspiracy to dissuade a witness and it's a crime and it's something i think would be very fruitful for the d.a. to explore. >> reporter: and now the screen actors guild is encourage anything potential victimmed to call its emergency hot line. gabrielle carteris is the union's president. >> people have been spk
6:40 pm
this potentially could be a watershed moment. >> reporter: now, the union says there's been a 500% increase in calls to their hot line since the scandal first broke last month. but so far, anthony, police have not sent any cases to the district attorney. >> mason: carter evans in hollywood. thanks, carter. an ex-wife of the texas church gunman says she lived in constant fear of him. she gave her first interview since 26 worshipers were murder during sunday services. omar villafranca is in sutherland springs, texas. >> he just had a lot of demons or hatred inside of him. >> reporter: 25-year-old tessa brennaman, was the first wife of church shooter devin kelley. he pleaded guilty in 2012 to hitting, choking, kicking, and pulling her hair. the then-23-year-old air force airman also admitted to fracturing the skull of her young son. today, she described for "inside edition" a marriage filled with
6:41 pm
threatened over a speeding ticket. >> and he had a gun in his holster right here, and he took that gun out, and he put it to my temple, and he told me, "do you want to die? do you want to die?" >> reporter: the guilty plea earned kelley a one-year sentence in a military prison, followed by a bad conduct discharge. >> reporter: he threatened to kill you and your whole family. >> yeah. >> reporter: this week, the air force acknowledged that it failed to notify the f.b.i. of the guilty pleas, which would have barredicle frepurchasing the guns used in the deadly church shooting here in sutherland springs. anthony osunday, there will be a service of healing about a block away at the local community center. >> mason: omar villafranca in texas tonight. thank you, omar. the full interview with taes brennerman will air monday on "inside edition." president trump's former national security adviser michael flynn is not only under is scrutiny for his dealings with russia. special counsel robert mueller is also reportedlyn
