John Rogers, communications director for Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore’s campaign, has resigned, Washingtonian reported on Wednesday.

Rogers confirmed his resignation by phone but declined to comment further, the magazine reported. The decision comes as Moore faces multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including accusations that he made advances on teenagers when he was in his 30s.
