"Saturday Night Live" took Alabama to task over the likelihood that it will still elect Steve Bannon's pick Roy Moore in the special election to replace now Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the U.S. Senate, despite recent allegations he sexually assaulated a 14-year-old girl when he was thirty.

"Voters in Alabama will never elect someone who's had relations with a minor," said the Vice President Mike Pence character, who was trying to talk Moore out of the race in the cold open of Saturday's episode.

"You sure about that?" retorted "SNL's" Moore.

"No," Pence admitted shamefully. "It's hard to convince people that you're not into young girls when you dress like Woody from 'Toy Story,'" continued Pence, trying to persuade Moore to exit the race.

"All right, if everyone thinks I did it, I'll marry her," says Moore after Pence continued to pressure him to "do the right thing."

The sketch ended with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, played by Kate McKinnon joking, "I'm Alabama, but you - you, sir, are too Alabama."
