Four days ago – out of the blue – the Washington Post published this story that now 53-year-old Leigh Corfman claims Alabama US Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore started a sexual encounter with her when she was just 14 and he was 32 in 1979.
That’s 38 years ago.
In a written statement, published by the Post, Moore denied the allegation.
“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.
The campaign said in a subsequent statement that if the allegations were true they would have surfaced during his previous campaigns, adding “this garbage is the very definition of fake news.”
Although we recognize how difficult it can be for sexual assault victims to come forth to tell their story, the timing of Corfman’s claim is just too coincidental. We don’t believe her.
Add to her suspicious timing – the special election between Moore and Democrat Doug Jones is Dec. 12 – Donna Brazille just admitted the Democrat primary was rigged. Although we’re a non-partisan organization, we see too much likelihood that admittedly financially-strapped Corfman was paid to lie, as well as the three other women in the article. One now, its been exposed, worked for the Democrat Party and several Democrat campaigns.
And let’s not forget the Republican establishment. They do not want independent, drain-the-swamp conservative Moore taking office in DC. Already numerous establishment Republicans have called for Moore to step aside. Innocent until proven guilty? Whatever happened to that concept.
We agree, as Moore’s campaign was quoted as saying in the Post article, that if the allegations were true, they would surely have surfaced previously – during either his recent, nationally-watched victory over Luther Strange or during one of his many other campaigns.
