Senate Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore now 70 has been accused of sexual misconduct with a 14 year old girl when he was 32 years old (almost 40 years ago) -according to a report out by the Washington Post:
Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.
It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.
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.
Three other women interviewed by the Washington Post said that Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16-18.
Is this a witch-hunt to cause Moore to resign? So we lose the shot we had at winning the Senate seat in Alabama?
Is this a distraction from all the news Donna Brazille is getting?
Or are these allegations true? Do we need to wait and see? Are those accused of sexual assault guilty until proven innocent? (Kevin Spacey, Weinstein, Louis CK? Ben Affleck, etc)
