SHOCKING Allegations Rock Senate Race
By BibleWizard ( [CC BY 3.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons
The Washington Post published a bombshell report that has turned the Alabama Senate Race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones upside down.

Leigh Corfman, 53, says Moore molested her as a 14-year-old girl. Corfman told the Post that Moore first approached her outside a courtroom in 1979. At the time, he was an assistant district attorney.

On one occasion, a 32-year-old Moore allegedly took Corfman into the woods and kissed her. In a subsequent encounter, he went much further (content warning)
Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

“I wanted it over with — I wanted out,” she remembers thinking. “Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.” Corfman says she asked Moore to take her home, and he did.

Two of Corfman’s childhood friends say she told them at the time that she was seeing an older man, and one says Corfman identified the man as Moore. Wells says her daughter told her about the encounter more than a decade later, as Moore was becoming more prominent as a local judge.

The Post reported detailed allegations of inappropriate encounters with three other females. All describe having relationships with a 30-something Moore when they were between the ages of 16 and 18. Alabama's age of consent is 16. Aside from Corfman, they say Moore didn't coerce them into a sexual relationship. However, their dates involved kissing and underage drinking. The three became upset as they got older recalling their status as minors and the age disparity. 

Moore denies all of the allegations. 

In a press release, his campaign said:
Today, the Judge Roy Moore Campaign for U.S. Senate issued a statement responding to yet another baseless political attack by the Washington Post, a paper that has endorsed Judge Moore's opponent. Moore campaign chair Bill Armistead released the following statement on Thursday afternoon: 

"Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today's Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake. National liberal organizations know their chosen candidate Doug Jones is in a death spiral, and this is their last ditch Hail Mary.

"The Washington Post has already endorsed the Judge's opponent, and for months, they have engaged in a systematic campaign to distort the truth about the Judge's record and career and derail his campaign. In fact, just two days ago, the Foundation for Moral Law sent a retraction demand to the Post for the false stories they wrote about the Judge's work and compensation. But apparently, there is no end to what the Post will allege. 

"The Judge has been married to Kayla for nearly 33 years, has 4 children, and 5 grandchildren.  He has been a candidate in four hotly-contested statewide political contests, twice as a gubernatorial candidate and twice as a candidate for chief justice. He has been a three-time candidate for local office, and he has been a national figure in two ground-breaking, judicial fights over religious liberty and traditional marriage. After over 40 years of public service, if any of these allegations were true, they would have been made public long before now.

"Judge Roy Moore is winning with a double-digit lead. So it is no surprise, with just over four weeks remaining, in a race for the U.S. Senate with national implications, that the Democratic Party and the country's most liberal newspaper would come up with a fabrication of this kind.

"This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation."

None of the four women have donated to or volunteered for Moore's primary opponent or his Democratic challenger. Corfman herself consistently votes Republican, including for Donald Trump.

The special election takes place December 8th.
