Bannon-Backed Roy Moore Accused Of Inappropriate Sexual Contact With 14-Year-Old Girl

In an explosive report that, if accurate, could potentially swing a race for Jeff Session's old Senate seat to the Democrats, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is being accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl back in 1979, when he was 32.

Moore handily won the Republican primary in the race to fill Session's old seat back in September, and was gearing up to face Democrat and former US Attorney Doug Jones in a special election next month.

The allegatios have elicited howls of outrage from Democrats and Republicans alike, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell demanding that Moore 'step aside' if the allegations are true.

Moore’s accuser, Leigh Corfman, is now 53, and she said she met Moore when he offered to watch her during her mother's child custody hearing. Moore, at the time, served as an assistant district attorney. Corfman said Moore asked for her phone number, and that the two met on two more occasions. On the first, the two kissed. During the second, she said Moore removed his clothes, took off her shirt and pants, and touched her over her bra and underpants, but did not have sexual intercourse.

WaPo also found three other women who said that Moore had approached them around a similar time, when they were between the ages of 16 and 18.



Republican Senator John McCain said the allegations against Moore are "deeply disturbing" and echoed McConnell's call for Moore to 'step aside.'



Meanwhile, Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, told WSJ: “The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling.” He added: “If these allegations are found to be true, Roy Moore must drop out of the Alabama special Senate election.”

All three of those women said that they never had any sexual contact with Moore outside of kissing. One 18-year-old high schooler told the paper that Moore would bring bottles of wine on their dates, even though the legal drinking age in Alabama was 19 back then.  One woman said she first met Moore when she was a 14-year-old working as “Santa’s helper” at a mall. He began asking her out when she was 16 years old.

Another woman, Debbie Wesson Gibson, said that Moore asked her out after he spoke to her high school civics class when she was 17. And Gloria Thacker Deason told the paper that Moore gave her wine while on dates when she was 18. Moore and his campaign have denied the allegations.

“These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore, now 70, said.

His campaign added that “this garbage is the very definition of fake news” and that the accusations would have surfaced at an earlier point in his political career if true.

Moore – who is best known for his stand against a federal court order to remove a statute of the ten commandments from the Alabama Supreme Court during the early Bush years – defeated establishment favorite (and Trump-backed candidate) Luther Strange in the primary runoff vote and will face the Democratic challenger in a special election later this year. However, these allegations threaten to upend his campaign.

As of Thursday, Moore led the RealClearPolitics average of recent polls by a 6 point margin. The two most recent polls had Moore up by 11, but the third most-recent, from Fox News, showed the race tied.

That shrinking margin is giving Democrats hope. But the party has so far resisted flooding the state with resources to benefit Jones because some political genius told them that their candidate would somehow be better off without the national party’s help. And after Donna Brazile’s bombshell revelations in her new book, they may have a point...

If Moore does drop out of the race, his departure will be an unmitigated victory for McConnell and President Donald Trump, both of whom backed Moore's primary challenger, "Big Luther" Strange, whom Moore defeated by a wide margin. Moore's triumph was seen as a major victory for the anti-establishment Bannon wing of the party. Bannon even went down to Alabama to campaign for Moore two days after his old boss made an appearance at a Luther Strange rally.

To be sure, Moore's not out yet. He has managed to hold on to his lead in the polls despite a barrage of negative stories about his finances. But his once-unassailable position has never looked more imperiled.

It doesn't matter, Moore is a Republican the media will cover this and still ignore the Dems.  I hope it isn't true, I find it almost impossible to prove either way this far out, almost 40 years later.  But they will smear him and still ignore the obvious child pedo ring that the Podesta Brothers and other are a part of.  Recently multiple mayors and Congressional aids have been nailed (all dems) and the media ignored it.  The BS MSM media could actually help people if they weren't strict propagandist.

It is, love the avatar by the way.  What is troubling is typically leopards don't change their spots.  If your a pedo you do it more than once.  If others come forward there may be something here.  We need to look at who this woman is, what has she been doing all these years, who is she related to and what connections they have.

Why I'll NEVER vote democrat again. Disgusting people with false racial/sexual/etc charges right before every election. It's part of their standard playbook now.

In the VA governor race it was a TV commercial showing a pickup truck with an R sticker on it, chasing down minority children to run them over.

The "news" should interview Billy Bob Clinton about these types of things, asking him how he was able to use his attacks/rapes of women to his political advantage.

I smell desperation coming from the Deep State and its minions.If Moore actually did what is alleged, did the woman say no, let's not go there. Consented.Also, if there is any truth to it. Moore should say I was an out of control 32 year old with plenty of testosterone. What we did was consensual. Since then I have repented and have lived to improve the quality of life in America. If his base is truly Christian they will understand and he may get more votes. We all fall short to the glory of God.I would venture to guess these accusers have a much more raunchy background than Moore.

"Those living in glass houses should beware of throwing stones."I suspect most people have something in their past they'd rather not have brought to light.  Liberals, Conservatives, doesn't matter, "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God".  The problem is that those claiming to be socially responsible are more likely to step down and those who don't just ignore the embarassment and keep their positions.  Case in point is president Clinton, accused of not just affairs but also rape and he (and his wife) just shrugged it off.  Remember the quote during a Benghazi hearing, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"I'm surprised, why aren't there already sites out there asking for people to report all politicians' past misdeeds?  Doubtless at least half the claims would be about Liberals.

Billy:GFY.I read that, you ass. She, and others, are lying bitchs paid off by the Dems to stop Moore's election.That reply was to the remark that he kissed a 17-year old. It was not in response to that remark in the story, a-hole. Why don't you try reading to whom I'm replying before making a ass out of yourself, as you do repeatedly.So we are supposed to believe that she sat of this "horrifying, traumatic experience" for nearly 40-years, even while Moore ran for office after office, including the Alabama Supreme Court and never said a word; now suddenly, she just has to tell the world.I've always believed you are a fucking idiot. Your post confirms it.Now tell us about the Russians getting Trump elected.Then, go E S & D.

I voted for Trump. Hillary is the one who colluded with the Russains.I have no idea whether these allegation regarding Moore are true or not but i know what the allegation are. When you go blustering about how age of consent is 17 in Alabama while ignoring the fact that one accuser was 14 at the time you are getting the story wrong..Why are you so insistent and self righteous about your belief that getting the facts wrong is a virtue?

Billy:Speaking of chastising me over reading what is written, I said the Age of Consent is 16 - not 17 as you posted,So you virtuous ass - you got the facts wrong about my post. Again, take your idiocy and GFY.And apparently you don't comprehend my statement that the Age of Consent post had to do with him kissing a 17-year old - and was not referring to the 14-year old.As for being "the facts of the case," according to Hillary and the Hillary Whore Corps, "the facts of the case" are that the Russians hacked the DNC server. Really - those are "the facts?"You don't know what the facts are. As I wrote in another post in this thread, the Dems hired a hooker in Baldwin County Alabama to level sex charges at the Republican candidate around 1998 or so This criminal action has found-out before Election Day, thank goodness.I also related  the story of how the Dems got Gov. Hunt (GOP) removed from office with a fake charge from the Democrat AG - which was overturned on appeal, however, the Democrat Lt. Gov. had already become the governor. Just like they are trying to do to Trump with Mueller.Take your "facts' and pack them. Dems are the sleaziest creatures ever created from the bowels of Hell.

Again, take your idiocy and GFY.Yes, I did get that wrong. I meant to review your post and I did not. My fault entirely. But you do realize that if the age of consent is 16 then a 14 year old is too young to consent, do you not? As for being "the facts of the case," according to Hillary and the Hillary Whore Corps, "the facts of the case" are that the Russians hacked the DNC server. Really - those are "the facts?"The DNC has not turned over the server to the FBI or DHS despite multiple requests. The server has only been examined by Crowdstrike, a company co-founded by a former Russian national.  Dems hired a hooker in Baldwin County Alabama to level sex charges at the Republican candidate ar...Dems got Gov. Hunt (GOP) removed from office   All the more reason to examine the facts in a rational manner in order to present a counter argument. I still have no idea why you think that the best defense is to run around like a chicken with your head cut off.

Have you read the actual report or does it sound like a set up because you have no idea what has been said? 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. “He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”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.Corfman described her story consistently in six interviews with The Post. The Post confirmed that her mother attended a hearing at the courthouse in February 1979 through divorce records. Moore’s office was down the hall from the courtroom.…

"Corfman described her story consistently in six interviews . . ."Any investigator will tell you a person is lying when they can be so consistent. It shows a made-up story - especially one that occurred nearly forty-years ago.Funny, she never brought this up when he ran for the AL Supreme Court - repeatedly.What is it about this election that spurred her to have this "need" to confess? Her, that is, and any other woman who has sat silent throughout Moore's career in elective office?To put it bluntly, how much are they getting paid? $100-thousand looks pretty good when you are matronly, no longer desirable to men, over 50, have a dead-end job, and a chance to have the world feel sorry for you . . .

Billy:My G-d you're an idiot.Let's say Moore offered to watch the girl. The woman would know why she was there, and know where his office was located.That doesn't mean he had any sexual relationship with her whatsoever.She could know about the court date, that he watched her, that his office was down the hall without have had any sexual interaction with him.What a chump.Please, hurry, go E S & D.

Fine, I'm an idiot and a chump because I want to know the facts of the case and the possible ramifications of the witness accounts.If the accusers are lying the best way to prove that is to listen to what they say, look for the strong points and the weak points and develop arguments from that point. But if that doesn't work for you consider this:You are a moron and everything you say is stupid. You are a chump and you hate Trump and you want the Muslims to take over Nebraska. Why don't you go PBJ yourself?Now, do you see how such histrionics are not persuasive?

Billy:You made a post that called these allegations "the facts of the case." Writing that conclusion does not constitute "investigation" as you now say is what interests you.I've read many of your posts - and frankly, you just aren't very bright. You suck up the sludge like a water vac.When you state things as "facts' that are intellectually repugnant, then I have a tendency to become like Jesus overturning the tables of the money-changers at the Temple. My Righteous Anger displays itself.You deserve every word I wrote. Try couching your posts with some withholding of judgment over the certainty of anything said by TPTB.

You made a post that called these allegations "the facts of the case." No, i didn't.I said that it's a fact that specific allegations have been made regarding an underage girl and that arguing against some other allegations makes no sense.Is it or is it not a fact that an accusation has been made by a woman who was 14 years old at the time the alleged incident happened? Does it make sense to try to dispel that accusation by saying that the age of consent in Alabama is 16? I've read many of your posts - and frankly, you just aren't very bright. You suck up the sludge like a water vac.The problem is that I'm talking smart but you are listening stupid.

 Hate to interrput you two courting, but, as to "why now", you may have noticed, a whole slew of accusers have stepped forward after the intiial Weinstein claim.  You willl also note the Bill Cosby accusers also had a flood after drought.  More recently we have Kevin Spacey, Harry Knowles, Joseline Hernandez, the Corey Felder expose, Ben Affleck, Roy Price, Oliver Stone, John Besh, James Toback, Leon Wieseltier, Terry Richardson, George Bush (CIAr), Mark Halperin, Michael Oreskes, Jeremy Piven, Dustin Hoffman, Brett Ratner, and more.Also the Catholic Church "indiscretions" went virtually unreported for decades, until the floodgates opened.That doesn't make the accusations true, but there certainly is a rational reason for "why now".

Your point is valid and it's the kind of thing that could be discussed here if some folks weren't so intent on misinterpreting what it means to asks questions about a contentious issue.It seems likely to me that more women will come forward following the publication of this story. Once again, I have no idea whether the allegations are true or false in whole or in part but this is the kind of thing that spawns imitators.

I read the report and I read this too:

"Wendy Miller says she was 14 and working as a Santa’s helper at the Gadsden Mall when Moore first approached her, and 16 when he asked her on dates, which her mother forbade. Debbie Wesson Gibson says she was 17 when Moore spoke to her high school civics class and asked her out on the first of several dates that did not progress beyond kissing. Gloria Thacker Deason says she was an 18-year-old cheerleader when Moore began taking her on dates that included bottles of Mateus Rosé wine. The legal drinking age in Alabama was 19.

Of the four women, the youngest at the time was Corfman, who is the only one who says she had sexual contact with Moore that went beyond kissing. She says they did not have intercourse."

If you are willing to discuss this rationally that could be an interesting topic. Before I even read this thread I was thinking how the accusers (meaning the women and the media promoting the story) are trying to lend credibility to one report of sex with an underage girl by including multiple other reports from women who were of legal age of consent at the time of their alleged contact with Moore.It is meant to establish a pattern but while there is similarity there is also a significant difference based on that very bright line of the age of consent. If Moore was attracted to young women and he had consistently approached young but legal aged women then the 14 year old is an outlier and not part of the pattern.
