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

Tyler Durden's picture

"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.

Am I alone in remembering that an anti Trump outfit, the DNC, RNC or some other nefarious organization, put a bounty out for dirt on Trump? I believe we'll find the same here, dollars being paid for any dirt tied to Moore.

Too bad Mr Moore isn't running for Gov of the great state of Corruptifornia. Plying open the legs of the young folk with booze is way it's done out here in San Francisco.

I'll give him a pass for now... pending futher "probing."


Most women are pretty much worthless after age 22, unless you place a high value on bellyaching and backstabbing.

Give Moore a pass or give a pass to soon to be Gov Newsome? Cause Newsome deserves a lot of things, but a pass isn't one of them.

What pedophile approaches a 14 year old sitting with her mother at a court house when he's assistant DA?  Plus, pedos get worse with time, not better.  If this was his MO you'd have dozens and dozens of victims.

The whole thing stinks of establishment butt hurt as it sees its feeding spot at the taxpayer trough in jeopardy.

I think the “approaches a 14 year old girl” is what everyone is concerned about. Pedo or not- fucked up behaviour.

Age of consent in AL is 16. The other three were all above age of consent and none of those claimed a sexual relationship. Will they correct the story?

Ms No's picture

Alabama is a little wierd.  They don't even have a close age exemption.  The first thing a prosecutor will look for with issues like this is usually the age difference.  There is hardly a prosecutor in the country that will go after a 19 year old that is screwing a 16 year old, especially when they have been dating prior when they were both minors.  Maybe if the Father keeps calling the cops that the guy wont go away.  If the guy is 30 it's often a completely different story because now it's seen as predatory.  Why?  People in communities don't want to see 16 year old girls in school knocked up by 40 year old perverts. 

 What is the 2017 Age of Consent in Alabama?

"The Alabama legal Age of Consent for sexual contact is 16 years old. There are a total of A total of thirty one states have set their age of consent at 16, the lowest age of consent in any state.

In Alabama, a person 19 years old or older who subjects another person to sexual contact who is less than 16 years old, but more than 12 years old is charged with sexual abuse. Someone 16 or older who has intercourse with someone between the ages of 12 and 16 who is at least two years younger then they are can be charged with second-degree rape.

Alabama has no Close-in-age Exemption

There are no set close-in-age exemptions or "Romeo and Juliet laws" to Alabama's age of consent. This means that anyone who engages in sexual activity with someone under the age of consent in Alabama is liable for prosecution, including people only a few years older then their sexual partner and even two individuals who are both under the age of consent. "

In that “several Republicans have already stepped up to condemn Moore and demand that he ‘step aside’"…as a good American I suggest that these real traitors in the Republican Party should step aside. What a phenomenon that every day brings more and more volunteer Republican traitors and none are more conspicuous than Senators McConnell and McCain.

Americans are being herded down the path toward global Bolshevism and Stalinism via one-party leftist politics, toward mass repression and an unrelenting worldwide police state. Before long, the one-party Establishment, like Stalin and Hitler, will be calling their political enemies such as Judge Moore terrorists and executing them.

Their ultimate target is the American culture which is founded in Christian morality. As gravediggers of the West; the enemy strikes not at Judge Moore's ideas, but at his faith, his honor, his reputation, his livelihood... his potential leadership. Moore stood up to take the arrows and now they're firing the arrows.

During Stalin’s quarter century of supreme power alone, from 1929 until his death in 1953, Oleg Khlevniuk estimates that Stalin “caused the imprisonment and execution of no fewer than a million Soviet citizens per year. Millions more were victims of famine directly resulting from Stalin’s policies.”

We and Judge Moore are fighting for the survival of our heritage.

Gimme da proof of collusion Roy!.  I suspect you have more than Bob Mueller,  but that is setting the bar pretty low.

Why would anyone come out with these accusations after so many years?

Did anyone catch (pun intended) the impetigo on that poor girl's lip, or was it herpes?

Sorry sounds like complete and utter bullshit. The Dems have form in this area.

On a more serious note, if voters can't choose between a guy falsely accused of feeling up a teenager 30 years ago and openly rampant, operational serial child molestors/corrupt POS/LGBTQ/pussyhat candidates they had better make the right choice.

Otherwise, we are f*ing done.

You and me get fucked. America gets fucked. God gets fucked. You really think this guy is a Christian?

Just like all the other Christians in politics? HAHA!

They're all bribed, blackmailed or murdered by the same Zionist owners....

Offense is the best defense.

The Dems project on to others what they are guilty of.

It's safe to say this is about some prominent elite striving to obfuscate an imminent pedaphillia charge.

I haven't read too much about this story since the origins of it are the Washington ComPost.

It is worth the read, only for your own analysis of what is the only source of the allegations. The way it is composed, the details, and words so and so said that she 'clearly remembered' such and such....from circa 1979.  That alone, considering the alleged circumstances makes an objective, thinking person raise questions as to the veracity and motives of the woman and BezosPost.  That was my take.

falconflight's picture

The one thing that I haven't heard anyone say...Moore was obviously tempted, but did not cross an important line, and we are Only talking about one person of the four who he allegedly had dates.  Even if all is accurate, he passed the test of personal temptation.  His behavior wasn't Hollywood or Kennedy or Clinton.

In 1972, I was 17. I knew several 14 year old girls who were ready, willing and eager. This was on the heels of the "Summer of Love" free sex, drugs and rock and roll.

The one question that hasn't been asked yet that I know about is, Why would this girls mother leave her 14 year old daughter with some one she just met on a park bench?

And by her own accusation, only heavy petting and when she said enough, he took her home. 

A whole lot of nothing here, so far. 

Barney Fife's picture

I smelll bullshit. Just as the sexual harassment/rape accusations really crank up regarding Hellywood, this "claim" conveniently pops up, especially now that the public has been sensitized to the topic. 

The only question that I think remains is "Who did it, Democrats? or Republicans? Me thinks its the later.

If someone comes out with allegations against a politician I believe them (except if it's Ron Paul) they're all self interested scumbags, perverts, rapists, thieves, liars and warmongering maniacs.

People who "date" 14-year-olds don't do it just once.  This would have been going on for 40 years and at least a dozen would be coming out now.

Also, the age of consent is different in the south.  In the 70's it was 14 in Texas (remember beloved Will and Ariel Durant 30-is and 14 yrs old respectively) and may have been 14 in Alabama too since in modern times (today) it is 16.

In the 70's 30-32 year olds often "went out" (with mom/dad's consent) with 16-year olds and many then married them around 2 years later. In 1965, a month away from my 17th birthday, I met and dated a 34 year old.  We were married when he was 36 and I was 18.  Didn't raise one eyebrow then.
