In what the entire mainstream media machine is calling a bombshell report, the openly Democrat aligned Washington Post has published an explosive piece that claims that the Republican nominee for a Senate seat in Alabama, Judge Roy Moore, had a series of inappropriate relationships with teenagers some 34 years ago.
The alleged incidents took place between 1977 and 1982 and range from asking a 16-year-old girl out to supposedly touching a 14-year-old, all of which Moore has strongly denied.
According to The Washington Post:
It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat— was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.
“He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”
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.
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. None of the three women say that Moore forced them into any sort of relationship or sexual contact.
Wendy Miller says she was 14 and working as a Santa’s helper at the Gadsden Mall when Moore first approached her, and 16 when he asked her on dates, which her mother forbade. Debbie Wesson Gibson says she was 17 when Moore spoke to her high school civics class and asked her out on the first of several dates that did not progress beyond kissing. Gloria Thacker Deason says she was an 18-year-old cheerleader when Moore began taking her on dates that included bottles of Mateus Rosé wine. The legal drinking age in Alabama was 19.
Of the four women, the youngest at the time was Corfman, who is the only one who says she had sexual contact with Moore that went beyond kissing. She says they did not have intercourse.
Interestingly, Breitbart News actually scooped the story from The Post, publishing an article about their upcoming report hours before it was actually released.
“Breitbart News obtained details of the forthcoming Post story from the newspaper’s letter detailing the allegations sent to Moore’s campaign for comment.”
In a statement, Moore flatly denied the allegations and noted that this was a hit job by the Democrats and their allies at the Post.
“These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign.” “This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation,” he continued.
The statement also noted that Moore has been in politics for decades and that if these allegations were true they would have came out already.
The Judge has been a candidate in four hotly-contested statewide political contests, twice as a gubernatorial candidate and twice as a candidate for chief justice.
He has been a three-time candidate for local office, and he has been a national figure in two ground-breaking, judicial fights over religious liberty and traditional marriage.
Amazingly, establishment Republicans, led by Rhino Mitch McConnell, are already taking the report as gospel and attacking both Moore and Breitbart News for supposedly “defending” him.
Well that didn’t take long…
It is also important to note that the reporters who published The Washington Post piece have a history of anti-Trump sentiment while The Post itself endorsed the Democrat who is going up against the highly popular Moore.
So what do you think?
Will these allegations turn out to be true or is this simply a disgusting attempt to piggyback off the Harvey Weinstein allegations and take out Judge Roy Moore before he wins the election?
