The Alabama Republican nominee for Senate, Roy Moore is being accused of having had inappropriate, romantic and sexual relationships with female minors.
Washington Post broke the news in a detailed multi-part piece that featured interviews with his accusers. In the piece, the women accused Moore of taking advantage of their youth for his own pleasure. He would allegedly take these women out on dates, give them wine and drive them to his secluded house in the woods. All of the women were 18 years or younger while Moore was at least 32 years old.
The youngest accuser, Leigh Corfman, was just 14 years old when Moore flirted with her during her own custody hearing and then proceeded to take her out on dates in his house. During one of these dates, Moore touched her while she was just in underwear and forced to touch his private parts.
“He touched her over her bra and underpants—-and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.”
Thankfully, Corfman says that, once she expressed discomfort, he took her home without much protest. But, her story is very similar to those of the other accusers.
It seems as though Moore, who was in his first government job as assistant district attorney, targeted only young girls or his romantic escapades.
The other accusers, Gloria Thacker Deason, Debbie Wesson Gibson and, Wendy Miller were just 18, 17 and 16 years old when Roy Moore actively pursued them.
Moore, of course, claims that these allegations are not true. Even going as far as calling it “Fake News” by the Democratic Party:
“These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,”
Political pundits across media are predicting that this story could mean the end of his bid for a Senate seat.
