Relationships with teenage girls

On November 9, 2017, The Washington Post outlined an account of a woman, Leigh Corfman, who said that Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32 years old.[111] Corfman said that Moore met her and her mother in the hallway of the county courthouse, where Moore was working as an assistant district attorney, and offered to sit with Corfman while her mother went into a courtroom to testify.[111] Corfman said that during that discussion he asked for phone number, and she gave it to him, and they later went on two dates.[111] For each date he picked her up in his car around the corner from her house, and drove her to his house.[111] The first time he "told her how pretty she was and kissed her". On a second date, Moore allegedly "took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes ... touched her over her bra and underpants ... and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear". Three other women came forward to say that Moore, then in his 30s, pursued relationships with them when they were 16 to 18 years old (16 is the legal age of consent in Alabama).[111] These three women said that Moore did not force them into having a relationship or non-consensual sexual contact.[111] Three of the four women also said that Moore served them alcohol; at the respective times they were all under 19, the legal drinking age in Alabama at that time.[111] If true, the allegation of sexual contact between Moore and the 14 year old would be a felony under Alabama law.[112][113] Moore has denied the allegations, calling them "completely false" and "a desperate political attack by the National Democratic Party and The Washington Post".[111] A former colleague who worked with Moore at the Etowah County District Attorney's office from 1982 to 1985 stated, "It was common knowledge that Roy dated high school girls, everyone we knew thought it was weird [...] We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall".[114][115]

 

Corfman, who made the initial accusations, says she has voted for Republican candidates in the past three presidential elections, including for Donald Trump in 2016.[111] The Washington Post corroborated her story with contemporary court records as well as interviews with her mother and a friend who stated that Corfman had told her about the incident after it happened.[113] In addition, an ex-boyfriend of Corfman who had dated her around 2009, said that Corfman had previously told him about the encounters with Moore, and that Corfman's story matched what she had told The Washington Post.[114]

 

Several Republican leaders said that Moore should step aside if the allegations were true.[116] Prominent Republicans such as John McCain and Mitt Romney called for Moore to drop out of the race after the allegations were reported.[117][118] Republican U.S. Senators Mike Lee, Steve Daines, and Bill Cassidy withdrew their endorsements of Moore's Senate candidacy.[119][120][121] The National Republican Senatorial Committee ended its joint fundraising arrangement with Moore, although the Republican National Committee continued its arrangement with him.[122] Days later, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he believes the women who made the accusations and that Moore should "step aside".[123]

 

Alabama Republicans have largely defended Moore from these accusations.[124] For example, Alabama state Auditor Jim Zeigler defended Moore's alleged actions on biblical grounds,[125] and Alabama State representative Ed Henry advocated prosecuting the accusers criminally.[126] Marion County Republican chair David Hall said that the encounter was irrelevant because it happened "40 years ago". Bibb County Republican chair Jerry Pow said that he'd support Roy Moore "even if the candidate had committed a sex crime" because he "wouldn't want to vote for Doug" Jones, the Democrat candidate. Convington County Republican party chairman William Blocker stated that he would still consider voting for Moore even if "hard proof of sexual abuse emerged". However, the chair in Geneva County, Riley Seibenhener said he would not support Moore if the allegations were true.[127]

 

In an interview with Sean Hannity, Moore denied knowing Leigh Corfman, though admitted to having dated "a lot of young ladies" including Debbie Wesson Gibson (who was 17) and Gloria Thacker Deason (who was 18). He denied providing them alcohol and added "I don't remember ever dating any girl without the permission of her mother."[128][129] When Hannity asked Moore if he has ever ever dated teenagers when he was in his 30s, Moore replied "Not generally, no."[130]

 

On November 13, another woman said she had known Moore when she was a teenager, and said that Moore assaulted her but that she fought him off. The woman, Beverly Young Nelson, is represented by attorney Gloria Allred.[131]

 

After the reports, state and national Republican Party leaders considered measures to try to oust Moore from the race in favor of another Republican candidate, weighing ideas such as supporting a write-in candidacy for Senator Luther Strange or seeking to ask Governor Kay Ivey to delay the special election until 2018.[130] Ivey said that she had no plans to change the election date.[132]
