Woman says GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 14

WaPo: Woman Accuses Roy Moore Of Sexual Encounter When She Was 14

Reacting to the report, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters "if these allegations are true, he must step aside".

While several Republicans distanced themselves from Moore, Alabama politician Jim Zeigler defended Moore and dismissed the allegations.

On the same day news surfaced of sexual assault allegations against Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, CNN released a report after reviewing old court documents that show Moore ruled in the 1990s as a circuit judge that a woman in a divorce case who had a lesbian affair could not see her children unsupervised.

Following the Post's reporting, WHNT News 19 independently found more than $1 million in compensation - including an uncashed $550,000 promissory note - paid to Moore based on his statements and Foundation records.

Leigh Corfman, now 53, said she met Moore outside an Alabama courthouse in 1979.

In addition to Corfman, three other women tell similar stories of Moore flirting with and pursuing them as young women.

'These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign, ' he said in a statement.

Pollak continued, "If this story is true - and I think any story of sexual misconduct especially with someone under age is very serious - why would The Washington Post wrap it with all kinds of perfectly legitimate relationships and with all kinds of political clutter?"

The special election between Moore and Democrat Doug Jones is scheduled for December 12. Corfman says she voted for Republicans over the past three presidential elections, including for President Donald Trump.

In his almost three decades of public service, Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has styled himself as one of the most religiously righteous politicians of the modern era.

Mr. Moore's candidacy had already anxious party leaders who had embraced the controversial former state Supreme Court justice despite his long record of incendiary comments about gays, Muslims and African-Americans, to protect the Senate seat once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Moore came under fire for his extremely conservative positions and statements made over the years, including a 2006 suggestion that Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, shouldn't be seated because "Islamic law is simply incompatible with our law", and his contention that homosexuality should be illegal.

It's too late for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's name to be removed from the ballot, even if he wants to drop out.

Moore also has a long history of incendiary comments on social issues.

Corfman said he removed her clothes, fondled her over her underwear, and, wearing only underwear himself, tried to get her to touch his penis.

"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", Corfman told the Washington Post, saying she asked Moore to take her home, and he did. Moore's office was reportedly just down the hall. In Alabama, the age of consent is 16, and the statute of limitations on the alleged offenses has passed.
