Roy Moore Denies "Completely False" Teen Sex-Abuse Allegations, Has "Evidence Of Collusion"

"It never happened... If you abuse a 14-year-old you shouldn't be a Senate candidate. I agree with that," Moore said. "But I did not do that."

In his first interview since the Washington Post published the explosive allegations regarding his sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl in 1979, Moore - the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama - appeared on Sean Hannity's radio show Friday. The former Alabama Supreme Court justice told the host that:

“These allegations are completely false and misleading,” Moore said.

 

“But more than that, it hurts me personally because, you know I’m a father. I have one daughter. I have five granddaughters. And I have a special concern for the protections of young ladies. This is really hard to get on radio and explain this. These allegations are just completely false.”

 

“I don’t know Ms. Corfman from anybody," Moore said.

As The Hill reports, The Washington Post also reported allegations from three other women, who said they were underaged when Moore pursued romantic or sexual relationships with them, and another woman who said he provided her alcohol when she was underaged. In the interview, Moore did not deny the possibility he dated women who were younger than 18 when he was in his 30s, but pointed out that most of the women in their accounts to the newspaper do not claim inappropriate sexual behavior.

“Obviously there was never any sexual activity ... the behavior was altogether appropriate according to them,” he said.

Moore acknowledged that he remembers two of the women named in the report: Debbie Wesson Gibson, who was 17 in her account, and Gloria Thacker Deason, who was 18 at the time of her alleged relationship with Moore.

He said he does not remember whether he dated either of them, but does not recall "specific dates."

“This was 40 years ago and after my return from the military, I dated a lot of young ladies," he said.

When asked if he remembered dating any woman who was in her late teens while he was a 30-something, Moore said, “not generally, no" and that it would be "out of my customary behavior."

“I don’t remember that, and I don’t remember ever dating any girl without the permission of her mother," he added.

 

“I knew her as a friend; if we did go out on dates then we did, but I do not remember that," he said of Gibson, who called her relationship with Moore “inappropriate” in hindsight to The Washington Post, due to their age difference.

Deason “believes she was younger than 19,” the legal drinking age in Alabama at the time, when Moore would order her alcohol on dates, she told the newspaper. Moore disputed that.

“As I recall she was 19 or older,” he said.

 

“I remember her as a good girl.”

Intriguingly, Moore then told Hannity that they "have some evidence of collusion" but are not ready to release that to the public just yet...

Following the interview, Moore released a full statement:

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — On Friday afternoon Judge Roy Moore issued a statement responding to the Was hington Post's baseless attacks on his character:

 

"Yesterday. I made a statement that the allegations described in a Washington Post article against me about s exual impropriety were false.

 

"It has been a tough 24 hours because my wife and I were blindsided by an article based on a lie supported by innuendo.

 

"It seems that in the political arena, to say that something is not true is simply not good enough.

 

"So let me be clear

 

"I have never provided alcohol to minors, and I have never engaged in sexual misconduct. As a father of a daughter and a grandfather of five granddaughters, I condemn the actions of any man who engages in sexual misconduct not just against minors but against any woman.

 

"I also believe that any person who has been abused should feel the liberty to come forward and seek protection.

 

"I know that a lot of people wonder why this story was written. Why would women say these things if they are not true? I can't fully answer that because as much as I have disagreed vehemently on political issues with many people over the years, I cannot understand the mentality of using such a dangerous lie to try to personally destroy someone.

 

"As a former Judge and administer of the law, I take the protection of our innocent as one of my most sacred callings. False allegations are gravely serious and will have a profound consequence on those who are truly harassed or molested.

 

"I strongly urge the Washington Post, and everyone involved, to tell the truth.

 

"That is all we can do. and I trust that the people of Alabama, who know my record after 40 years of public service, will vouch for my character and commitment to the rule of law."

Finally, AP reports that the Alabama Secretary of State has confirmed that it is too close to the vote for the Moore's name to be removed from the ballot.

Moore, like Trump, has zero credibility because he lies all the time.  The voters in the middle realize the lies.   You can keep pumping false propoganda, but the Alt-Right is going to get crushed in the polls in 2018 and 2020.

Anybody else remember the allegations against Herman Cain during the run up to the 2016 Presidential elections? Remember how he disappeared and nothing happened? How there was no follow-through, and the coverage stopped as soon as he got out of the picture?

I remember.

This is all the same shit, basically. Call someone out as a rapist, or hiring escorts, or (insert "societal evil" here), and then get rid of them. It's not that TPTB don't also do all of that, but they just want to accuse you of it at a proper time to fuck with you. They, on the other hand, are untouchable.

1979= 38 years later I will talk??? Give me a fucking break you libtards!!

Wouldn't put it past some on the Republican side to be behind this.

I thought that too, but they would have released this at the primary so as not to lose the seat.

The Wizard's picture

This does sound a bit fishy

What's fishy is they push out a hard to believe 14yo story, then right behind it 3 more women pop up out of the blue with stories of a polite young man. They may have found one or two young older teens to build the 14yo story.  A good setup would have had each of the other three come out individually waiting a little time.

What's irritating is all of the pedo's in DC are running around scott free  without being exposed.

It is a total hit piece,  you can tell by the over the top way the liberals are attacking Hannity and Bannon and any one else that does not out right condemn Roy Moore, going so far as to characterize them as defending a molester of 14 yo's,  no need to wait for evidence or anything.    Total hit piece.  Meant to sow disgust and confusion right before the election.   regardless of what Roy Moore did 40 years ago,  Wapo ass fucked the hell out of the first amendment this week.  And it was not consensual.

Can some programmer please make an algorithm to chart the spacing of these these sex scandals, exposing the MSM’s ratings chase.

Nothing sells copy like sex scandals of this ilk.

Not saying any of us know what happened over 40 years ago. We don’t.

But if a programmer would help detect the pattern of media exploitation of sex gossip as news, comparing the number of sex scandals in recent coverage with the frequency of coverage of sex gossip in past eras, we would know whether the advent of women in the media is the reason that the focus of the news is so often on 1) men who just cannot keep their hands off of women, 2) more womb-productivity rewards for working moms in the welfare and tax code and 3) more mandated absenteeism privileges for working moms.

Meanwhile, if I had a dollar for every bullying, unprofessional-to-the-core female I have seen in workplaces, making people (often other women) miserable on a daily basis, using every bullying tactic under the sun, from cutting statements in meeetings about things completely unrelated to work to singing mocking songs to non-mom employees, I would be rich.

I do not buy that some of these minor groping incidents are any worse than a daily helping of mom-gang abuse, especially in the context of their corrupt, back-watching absenteeism clubs, often led by momma managers who often use their authority in bad ways, just like men.

Mom managers and mom employees get away with all of it; you cannot criticize a mom in any institutional setting. They are above reproach, no matter what they do.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Ask yourself:

Why—if this is happening so often—are so many underaged girls so unsupervised, not that that criticism applies in all of these [alleged] cases.

Since the MSM leads us to believe there are male sexual predators around every corner, moms need to stop going out with their friends all the time and on frequent, lengthy and excused babyvacations from these jobs that they dominate.

Rather than growing up sooner and settling down, like previous generations of mostly married parents, today’s parents spend years—well into middle age in many cases—partying like rock stars and frolicking with their friends, not their kids, on the weekends and during frequent and lengthy, excused vacations from work, leaving their kids with grandparents or babysitters.

And both parents work.

Maybe, we did not hear about so many sex scandals of this type in past eras because one parent was dedicated to watching the kids as her primary occupation until they were grown.

Maybe, one parent needs to watch over the young girls more, rather than taking two jobs out of the economy to finance more luxury items, like trips and bigger houses to keep up with the Jones’. Teenagers often need more monitoring from parents than kids in other age groups. It would involve some sacrifice, and we know all working moms are saints.

This smells like...Democrats.

If it smells like buttermilk and turtle piss it's likely McConnell and his band of fuckups.

McConnell is a piece of shit. Did I mention that he is also one of the goofyest looking bastyards to ever have served in the senate??  Too bad the polio didn't kill him.

See guys, this is what happens when you make a simple pass at a woman and she rejects your advances.

Well then, this 'date' is over.

Get the fuck out of my car, you frigid bitch.

Wahooo's picture

BS meter is redlining. So...a 14 year old lets some guy take her out to the woods in a car and remove her clothes then make out with her without a fight or doing anything else except telling (bragging to?) her friends. Maybe she didn't know what a penis is for?

serotonindumptruck's picture

Yeah, but she doesn't make a huge national stink about it until the guy is running for a vacant congressional seat.

How much did Bezos pay this bitch to fabricate and exaggerate this story?

Maybe he offered her a $500 gift card from Amazon.

Everyone is lying's picture

Don't forget, Moore ran 4 different campaigns in Alabama in previous years.

 

No mention of ANY of this at all. 

 

But now?

 

What a scam.    The Bezos Gazette is creating a smear job of the nastiest kind.

I'm 65 years old, didn't get married until age 42, dated hundreds of girls starting at age 20 after getting out of the service.  I can tell you, I might remember what they looked like, but other than main girlfriends can't remember many names or ages of girls dated.  In early thirties, girls around 18 liked guys my age, took a few out, but didn't last long, they were too clingy and usually lived at home with parents, and believe it or not, it wasn't all about sex.  I totally believe the good Judge.  Keep fighting Judge!

The jew cunts at the (((WaPo))) and that space alien-looking creep Bezos destroyed their credibility as a 'news' outlet long ago.  I believe nothing that they purvey.  Go Judge Moore and MAGA!

 If you abuse a 14-year-old you shouldn't be a Senate candidate. 

 

But rape and murder ala Teddy the Swimmer is perfectly okay.

Once you're in the Senate you're a member of the club.  Menendez said so.
