In an interview with the Washington Post, Leigh Corfman describes her first encounter with Moore as flattering, but turned troubling as time went by. She explains that he introduced himself to her and her mother outside an Alabama courtroom, and offered to watch Leigh as her mother went to her child custody hearing.

From there, Moore asked for Leigh’s phone number, and proceeded to pick her up days later.  They drove into the woods, and it was there Leigh states that Moore complimented her and kissed her. On her second day with, Moore removed all his clothes, and touched Leigh over her bra and underpants and placed her hand on his private parts.

Leigh remembers thinking, “please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.” 

From Corfman’s confession, the Washington Post has interviewed three other women who accused Moore of pursuing them when they were 16 and 18 at the time he was in his 30s.

Wendy Miller was 14 when Moore met her, and 16 when Roy aske her out on dates. Another woman, Gloria Thacked Deason was 18 when Roy took her out on dates with wine as she was underage. In addition, Debbie Wesson Gibson stated she was 17 when he thought her class while Moore asked her on many dates and made out with her.

To date. candidate Roy Moore is facing allegations from 4 women accusing him of inappropriate conduct. Moore has denied all the allegations saying, “these allegations are false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign.”

It is important to note that Corfman is a registered Republican and has no business helping the Democratic party. In addition, none of the 4 women approached the Washington Post or any other news outlet to create fake news.

As the news broke. Senate Majority Leader and other Republicans came out saying if the story is true, Roy Moore “must step aside” from his campaign.

The news is certainly damaging to his campaign considering the Alabama Senate election is just a little over a month away.
