Roy Moore runs to Breitbart to preemptively deny WaPo report about improper relations with underage girls

Published

on

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday issued a preemptive denial about an explosive story published by the Washington Post about allegedly improper relations with underage girls.

Moore issued a formal denial of the impending story to Breitbart News, in which he said the story was concocted by the Democratic Party to defeat his senatorial campaign.

“These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore tells Breitbart.

As for the report itself, the Post has a woman named Leigh Corfman on the record claiming that Moore made sexual advances toward her when she was just 14 and when Moore was in his 30s.

Corfman’s mother and two of her childhood friends corroborated her account.

Corfman tells the Post that she was reluctant to speak out about the incident for years, but said she wanted to come forward because she couldn’t stand the thought of Moore not being confronted with his past behavior.

“I have prayed over this,” she tells the Post. “All I know is that I can’t sit back and let this continue, let him continue without the mask being removed.”

Three other women interviewed by the Post also say that Moore approached them and made sexual advances toward them when they were still teenagers.

“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,” writes the Post. “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 Post claims that none of the women it interviewed sought out the paper to tell their stories. Rather, a Post reporter first heard about Moore’s relations with underage women while covering the Alabama Senate race, and from there reporters began interviewing people whom they believed might have been approached by Moore.

‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"
