Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore

Senator Richard Shelby says he decided to cast a write-in ballot in the state's upcoming Senate election because of allegations that GOP 

   nominee Roy Moore molested a girl when she was 14.

Shelby told CNN in an interview Sunday that the accusation was the "tipping point" in his decision not to vote for Moore. He says he wrote in the name of a "distinguished" Republican instead.

Shelby previously announced his refusal to vote for Moore, but he explained it during the interview.
