Christian fascist Roy Moore, likely the next senator from Alabama, has been accused by a woman of molesting her when she was 14 years old and he was a 32 year old assistant district attorney. The explosive allegations against the head of the Foundation for Moral Law are reported by the Washington Post.
Her story is that she was with her mother at the courthouse for a custody hearing and he sat down next to her on a bench outside and offered to stay with the daughter during the hearing so she didn’t have to sit through it. He later contacted the girl and took her for a ride in his car.
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.
“I wanted it over with — I wanted out,” she remembers thinking. “Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.” Corfman says she asked Moore to take her home, and he did.
Two of Corfman’s childhood friends say she told them at the time that she was seeing an older man, and one says Corfman identified the man as Moore. Wells says her daughter told her about the encounter more than a decade later, as Moore was becoming more prominent as a local judge.Aside from Corfman, three other women interviewed by The Washington Post in recent weeks say Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s, episodes they say they found flattering at the time, but troubling as they got older.
Wow. The stories of the three other women are also in the article. Moore is, of course, denying all of this, calling it a “desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign.” I’m sure Satan is behind the whole thing, or Obama, but that’s the same thing in the eyes of Moore and his followers.
The Post confirms some of the details of the story, including that her mother did have a hearing at that courthouse at the time described in 1979. So you now have four different women accusing him of inappropriate relationships with teenage girls. Will it cost him the election? I’d be shocked if it did. Remember, Trump admitted to sexual assault and was elected president. Because we don’t take women seriously when they accuse powerful men of sexual misconduct.
And he has people like Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler to defend him, saying things like, “Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist. Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.” But remember, liberals are the real moral relativists.
