The Milwaukee-based member of the House said that a supporter of Roy Moore, a controversial Senate candidate in a Tuesday election in Alabama, posed as a reporter and called her a racial epithet after her call for protection for Congressional staff due to accusations about his conduct with women.

Gwen Moore, a Democrat who represents the City of Milwaukee and some suburban areas, claims someone snuck in claiming to be a reporter, then treated her this way.

Gwen Moore wrote to Senate Sergeant at Arms Frank Larkin saying she was urgently concerned that young men and women working as pages would need protection if Moore wins on Tuesday.

Moore faces several allegations of sexual misconduct, including the accusation that he molested a 14-year-old girl decades ago when he was in his 30s. He has denied the accusations.

Senate pages must be high school juniors, at least 16 years old, and attend school. Their duties include delivering legislation and correspondence at the Capitol. They attend classes in the morning.

Moore wrote that Congress has an obligation to keep the pages safe.
