Roy Moore accused of sexual misconduct with teen, Washington Post reports
A woman has come forward claiming former Chief Justice Roy Moore initiated sexual contact with her in 1979 when she was 14, The Washington Post is reporting.
Leigh Corfman said the incident happened outside a courtroom in Etowah County when Moore was was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney.
"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," the report states.
Moore has denied the claims, according to Breitbart News:
"These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign," Moore said in a statement obtained by Breitbart News. "This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation."
"The Judge 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," said the statement.
"After over 40 years of public service, if any of these allegations were true, they surely would have been made public long before now."
