Roy Moore’s campaign this week tried to debunk the sexual harassment claims made by Leigh Corfman, who alleges Moore molested her when she was only 14 years old.
The Washington Post investigated the campaign’s claim against Corfman and could find no evidence to support it, however.
Specifically, the Moore campaign alleged this week that Corfman had lied about the place where she allegedly met Moore by claiming that it was too far away for her to be within walking distance from her house.
“Corfman’s supposed pickup place was almost a mile away from her mother’s house and would have been across a major thoroughfare,” the campaign said.
However, the Post reviewed the records and found absolutely nothing to contradict Corfman’s story.
“Corfman and her mother, Nancy, told The Washington Post that they lived at the time on Whittier Street in Gadsden, Alabama, around the corner from Alcott Road and Riley Street, where Leigh says she met Moore,” the publication writes. “Nancy Corfman said she kept that address from 1974 until February 1981, when she relocated with her new husband to a house on Dogwood Circle in Gadsden, which is about a mile away across a major thoroughfare. A police report about property theft published in the Gadsden Times on March 31, 1980, listed Nancy Corfman’s address on Whittier Street.”
When the Post then asked the Moore campaign to substantiate its allegations against Corfman, the campaign responded by hurling personal insults.
“The Washington Post is a worthless piece of crap that has gone out of its way to railroad Roy Moore,” wrote back Moore campaign strategist Brett Doster. “There is no need for anyone at the Washington Post to ever reach out to the Roy Moore campaign again because we will not respond to anyone from the Post now or in the future. Happy Thanksgiving.”
