Roy Moore Denies Molestation Allegation, Says He Never Knew the Accuser

Roy Moore, Alabama Senatorial Candidate

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore Friday denied he initiated sexual contact with any 14-year old or even knew the lady accusing him of sexual misconduct.



Speaking during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show, the Alabama Republican said the accusations against him were “completely false” and “completely manufactured.”

“I don’t know Ms Corfman from anybody,” he said on Hannity’s show. “I’ve never talked to, never known her or anything.”

The Washington Post reported this week that Leigh Corfman told them that in 1979, when she was 14, Moore met her outside of a courtroom after offering to watch her while her mother went into a child custody hearing.

Corfman told the paper that Moore, on a second trip to his home, “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.”

“Nobody that abuses a 14-year-old at age 32 or at age 17, it doesn’t matter, if you abuse a 14-year-old you shouldn’t be a Senate candidate. I agree with that. But I did not do that.”






Moore, a religious conservative called the allegations “politically motivated after 40 years of public service.” He said he had “evidence of collusion” that would discredit the allegations but he was not ready to go public with it.

He later issued a statement but failed to provide any evidence that exonerates him.

“These allegations are completely false and misleading. I believe they’re politically motivated, to stop a successful campaign,” he told Sean Hannity.

“It never happened, and I don’t even like hearing it,” Moore added when Hannity pressed him on the sexual allegations claims. “I don’t remember that, or dating any girl without the permission of her mother.”




Moore added that anyone who molests a 14-year old should not be running for any federal office.

“Nobody that abuses a 14-year-old at age 32 or at age 17, it doesn’t matter, if you abuse a 14-year-old you shouldn’t be a Senate candidate. I agree with that. But I did not do that.”

When Hannity asked Moore about allegations from Debbie Wesson Gibson, who said that when she was 17, Moore spoke to her high school civics class and took her out on several dates, where they kissed, Moore said “it’s been 40 years. I remember her as a good girl.”

“I don’t remember specific dates,” he said. “I know her, but I don’t remember going out on dates.”



Speaking about Gloria Thacker Deason, another lady who alleged Moore took her on a date and served her alcohol when she was 18, Moore said: “As I recall she was 19 or older. I never provided alcohol to a minor,” he said. “I seem to remember her as a good girl.”

On Friday Moore who has been fundraising over the sexual misconduct allegations said in a statement that he has never provided alcohol to a minor.

“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,” Moore said in his statement released Friday.




Moore backer and former special adviser to President Donald Trump, Steve Bannon compared the allegation against Roy Moore to the “Access Hollywood” tape that was released during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“The Bezos Amazon Washington Post that dropped that dime on Donald Trump is the same Bezos Amazon Washington Post that dropped the dime this afternoon on Judge Roy Moore,” Bannon said at a dinner of conservative activists in Manchester, New Hampshire. “Now is that a coincidence? That’s what I mean when I say opposition party, right?”

Despite allegations of sexual misconduct, political experts believe Moore will win the election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former seat. The general election is on Dec. 12.
